by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

Cagayan de Oro City (7 September) -- The conduct of seminars on the country's Criminal Justice System (CJS) has topped the list of activities for this year's celebration of the National Crime Prevention Week (NCPW) in Northern Mindanao.

Observed from September 1-7 every year, per Presidential Proclamation No. 461, dated August 31, 1994, the observance of NCPW aims to broaden community support for the anti-crime campaign of the government through the conduct of intensive awareness drives in schools and barangays.

It also aimed at establishing and/or strengthening multi-sectoral linkages and networking on crime prevention at the national and local levels.

"Included in these seminars are activities on information dissemination and understanding of the role of the different pillars of the CJS, namely: Law Enforcement, Prosecution, Courts, Correction and Community," Regional Director Raquel Ramos of the National Police Commission (Napolcom-10) said.

For this year, the NCPW focuses on the global dimension of crime and the need to strengthen multi-sectoral cooperation in the fight against international and domestic threats, such as those posed by terrorism, illicit drugs, firearms smuggling, human trafficking and all other forms of crime that adversely affect the national peace and development efforts, Ramos said.

Particularly, Napolcom is involved in initiating projects and activities and generating resources from the different sectors of society to sustain them, as well as, in monitoring and evaluation of projects for purposes of benchmarking the best practices.

"We want to solicit the involvement of national government agencies, local government units and non-government organizations to give attention to the social infrastructures that breed crime, such as, poverty, unemployment," she said.

Meanwhile, Ramos said the weeklong activities in the city included the following:

Aug. 30 - "Baklay Batok Krimen (Walk Against Crime) participated in by government and non-government employees and students with the newly elected Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri as guest of honor and speaker during the program at Mindanao Polytechnic State College (MPSC) that followed after the walk.

Sept. 3 Dialogue with the regional, city and provincial senior police officers and non-uniformed personnel at the headquarters of the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Camp Alagar, this city.
