Siquijor PNP conducts lectures on basic law and order to schools
By Rizalie Calibo
Siquijor (5 October) -- The Larena Police is presently conducting lectures on basic principles of law and order to some elementary and high schools within their area of responsibility (AOR).
Police Inspector Enrique Belcina, Chief of Police, said, the program aims to mold students to become law-abiding citizens of this country. Its objectives are to teach students to respect authority and give them an idea of their fundamental rights, duties and obligations under the law.
Belcina further said that the program is in reference of the Sangguniang Bayan Resolution Number 46 of the municipality of Larena requesting the agency to conduct lectures to elementary pupils and secondary students of the elementary and high schools (public and private).
Subjects to be discussed are: Fundamental Rights of the Child, Basic Principles of Law and Order, and Basic Tips During Emergencies and Crisis.
Meanwhile, the government continues to pursue all means to keep the prospects of peace up, on the back of principled negotiations and affirmative action to resolve conflict.
The government negotiating panel is quietly working on a position that will hopefully break the impasse and move the talks forward. (PIA) [top]
