BCPO launches ‘brotherhood’ project to sustain peace in city
by Rimaliza A. Opiña

BROTHERHOOD -- The Baguio City Police Office piloted a project that intends to give deeper meaning to brotherhood through the program called Kabsat or Keep all of Baguio Safe and Thriving – a peace and order campaign where regular dialogues between the police, religious, and civil society organizations will be called for immediate action on concerns about security in the community.

To sustain the peace and order campaign of the Baguio City Police Office, the office launched on Thursday a program that aims to strengthen camaraderie in the community.

Through the program called Kabsat or sibling in Iloco, the program initiated by the BCPO will gather stakeholders in the civil society, business and religious sectors, and the barangays for a continuing dialogue on their concerns regarding peace and order in the city.

“Baguio is a place for all races, all religions, and for all people. We are all brothers and sisters,” BCPO Director Col. Allen Rae Co said during the program’s launching on May 9.

Through the project called Kabsat, which is also the acronym for “Keep all of Baguio Safe and Thriving,” Co said the campaign aims to engage members of the communities to be each other’s keeper.

“We should have a sense of brotherhood. As neighbors we should take care of one another,” Co said stressing that other than “police visibility,” the best way of keeping a community safe is when members of the community themselves look out for each other.

Co said the Kabsat program of the BCPO is a project meant to attain lasting peace and to sustain Baguio’s recent recognition as one of the most peaceful cities in Southeast Asia.

“There should not be any division among stakeholders. If the sectors have concerns, the police will address these immediately,” Co said, stressing that the project is also a strategy to pro-actively deal with issues on violence.

The BCPO chief said the initial plan would be to hold the dialogues every four months.

Albeit gains of the program still have to be assessed, B/Gen. Ephraim Dickson, director of the Police Regional Office-Cordillera, said the project will soon be implemented in all six provinces of the Cordillera.
