As requested by the Department of Education here, they will bring their teams to other provinces to conduct crime prevention and suppression activities to curb crime incidents, he said.

During the culmination of the Crime Prevrtnion Month, the NAPOLCOM gave due recognition to individuals and agencies that contributed immensely in their functions.
