Search for Outstanding Barangay Tanod unfolds

Negros Occidental (7 September) -- The Department of Interior and Local Government together with the different departments of the provincial government is launching the search for outstanding barangay tanod for this year.

The search for outstanding tanod is open to all accredited and recognized tanods in the province in both categories individual and group. The Punong Barangay or the Philippine National Police may nominate individuals and groups qualified for the search.

Criteria for judging the individual category include personal- 10 points, recognition/appreciation/commendation- 10 points, record statistics- 20 points, exemplary act/deed during emergencies/disasters/public disorders to save lives and properties 30 points, work attitude/work ethics- 20 points and the nomination for 10 points.

Items included in the Personal criteria are the trainings attended and the length of service, for the recognition and commendation, awards from the national, regional and local award are also counted. Records statistics involves the total number of incidents personally responded to, press releases/newpapers/radio/TV, pictorials and projects initiated or led.

Documented exemplary acts during emergencies are also being evaluated as part of the criteria. Attendance to meetings and events, personal grooming, courtesy and interpersonal relationship with peers and the community bear merit to being an outstanding tanod for the individual category.

For the group category, aside from being duly appointed and recognized by the barangay for 15 points, other criteria include organization and function structure for 5 points; logistical and financial support for 10 points; trainings for 20 points; support facilities and equipment for 20 points and accomplishment of the group for 30 points.

Groups vying for the most outstanding tanod must present their organization structure, functional chart, duty detail and emergency list. A proof of their logistical and financial support must be presented whether it comes from the Sangguniang Barangay or other sources like the private sector.

Trainings in first aid, arrest technique, rescue and emergency response, self-defense and firefigting will also bear weight for the award to include uniforms and facilities available to the group.

Prizes for the outstanding tanod(s) are still being finalized by the DILG, Office of Public Affairs, Provincial Information Office, Provincial Disaster Management Team, and the Negros Occidental Provincial Police Office.

DILG Provincial Director Ma. Joy Maredith Madayag is enjoining the mayors of the different cities and municipalities to encourage the barangays under their jurisdiction to participate and join the search. (PIA/EAD) [top]
