Signing of MOU with PCSupt Cedrick Train of PRO12 and  Engr. Hermon Hernandez of SM City General Santos for the partnership of  “Ugnayan sa Rehiyon Dose”

In a bid to enhance public awareness on its campaigns and initiatives, the Police Regional Office (PRO)-12 has launched a new information and education program in partnership with various government agencies and the private sector.

Chief Supt. Cedrick Train, Region 12 police director, said the move is part of their efforts to further strengthen their collaboration and engagements with stakeholders within the region in line with their duties and mandates.

Dubbed “Ugnayan sa Rehiyon Dose,” he said the initiative is a component of the PRO-12’s operational strategies in support of President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s campaigns against criminality, illegal drugs and corruption. “This was conceptualized to provide a framework for partnership with the civil society and concerned stakeholders, and make them aware of what has been happening in our region in the areas of public safety, security and law enforcement,” Train said.

The program was formally launched on Wednesday, July 13 following the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the PRO-12 and the management of the SM City General Santos. It was signed by Train, representing the PRO-12, and assistant mall manager Hermon Hernandez for the SM City General Santos.

Under the MOU, SM mall will provide the free venue for the monthly conduct of the “Ugnayan sa Rehiyon Dose” as part of its corporate social responsibility. It is scheduled every second Wednesday of the month and would be assisted by the Philippine Information Agency in Region 12.

Train said the activity will adopt a “town hall meeting” format and would also involve other government agencies and offices in the region. He said a forum will be held to facilitate exchanges and they provide data and updates about their activities.

Train said they will invite community stakeholders, representatives from various sectors and the media to participate in the exchanges. “We’re including the participation of other (government) agencies to promote transparency and set an integrated approach in terms of addressing various issues and concerns confronting our communities,” he said.
