Every first week of September of every year is declared as the National Crime Prevention Week pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 461 dated August 31, 1994. All government agencies and instrumentalities of government are enjoined to evolve and implement projects and activities that focus on prevention as an approach in combating criminality.
This year’s theme is “Pamayanang Mapagmasid, Kapayapaan ang Maihahatid”. This will focus on information drive and awareness on the vital role of every stakeholder in crime prevention through building collaborative partnership among the community, law enforcement agencies and local executives that gears to the full implementation of the Community and Service-Oriented Policing (CSOP) System. # Source – www.dilg.gov.ph
