TACLOBAN CITY– Police in Southern Leyte have launched the revitalized crime-prevention strategy dubbed “Kasimbayanan,” which stands for “Kapulisan, Simbahan, at Pamayanan,” to ensure peace and order in the province.

“I sincerely commend you all for your diligence, support, contribution, and participation. This activity will never be successful without each one of you,” said Colonel Hector Enage, director of the Southern Leyte Police Provincial Office (SLPPO).

“Besides, unity is achieved when a community of diverse beliefs finds a common ground to work together for a greater vision,” added the police official.

Under the revitalized strategy, authorities have involved the local government unit (LGU) officials, village tanods and officials, faith-based leaders and volunteers, and the entire community.

During the launching ceremony last Monday(October 10), Enage also lauded the “timely and relevant messages of support” from different LGU and non-government organization officials, along with faith leaders.

The participants also pledged commitment and support to the police in its crime-prevention activities.(RONALD O.REYES)
