Kiangan MCPC develops plans for intervention of juveniles
by PIA Ifugao

KIANGAN, Ifugao – Members of the Municipal Council for the Protection of Children (MCPC) of this town have started to develop a Comprehensive Local Juvenile Intervention Program (CLJIP) to reduce crimes committed by children and those committed against them.

The move has been prompted by the results of the child-friendly local government audit where the number of children-at-risk (CAR) and children in conflict with the law (CICL) in the locality remains a concern.

Data on crimes committed against children showed there were 23 cases last year while recorded crimes committed by children for 2016 reached 22.

For the first half of 2017, 10 crimes were committed against children topped by rape with six cases followed by acts of lasciviousness with three and physical abuse with one.

There were seven crimes committed by children in 2017, four of which are theft cases, two are rape cases, and one involved physical injury.

Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officer Mario Indopia, MCPC vice chair, said one of the measures they identified is the formulation of the CLJIP. He said the municipality got 41.4 out of the 65 points in the child-friendly local government audit results for 2016.

To facilitate the plan preparation, a representative from the Department of the Interior and Local Government provided reference in formulating the CLJIP with the following framework: organization and orientation of the MCPC and the project management team, preparatory phase such as the situation of CAR and CICL, data gathering and the establishment of the baseline data, assessment and analysis of the problems confronting the CAR and CICL and the identification of priority issues; plan formulation phase that involve formulating the goals, objectives, identification of programs and strategies, and investment planning for a three-year period and the annual investment plan; endorsement and approval phase, implementation phase, and the monitoring and evaluation phase.

The Philippine National Police has a program called the Police Action Giving Attention to the Negative Growth of OSY and In-school-youth or Pagango, which has four categories, namely spiritual, music, sports and skills, and livelihood development. The police are disseminating the program in the barangays.

The Business Permit and Licensing Office of the town is doing continuous inspection and monitoring of boarding houses to check if the rooms for boys are separate from girls as provided for in a municipal ordinance. The team also confronted some store owners for allowing minors to smoke in their backyard.

The municipal chaplain, meanwhile, said their group is willing to conduct moral recovery activities in the barangays with high number of CAR and CICL cases. 

The Bureau of Fire Protection suggested the conduct of fire olympics and fire drills for students.
