Davao region peace council assures all-out support to JPSCC

From the Philippine News Agency (Oct 11): Davao region peace council assures all-out support to JPSCC 

The Regional Peace and Order Council 11 expressed full support for the creation of a Joint Peace and Security Coordinating Center (JPSCC) between the military and the police in Davao region.

RPOC-XI chair Governor Rodolfo del Rosario assured the top brass of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) that the council welcomes the JPSCC, which intends to unify all efforts of the military and the police in addressing peace and security, as well as, disaster response concerns in Eastern Mindanao.

He said the document is highly called for, especially with the volatile peace and order situation in Mindanao today.

The joint efforts of the military and the police, according to him, are crucial in securing the initiatives of local government units (LGUs) in localizing the peace process, through the provision of sustained welfare program to critical communities.

AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Emmanuel Bautista, EastMinCom Commander MGen. Ricardo Rainier Cruz III, PNP Chief Police Dir. Gen. Alan Purisima and DIPO-EM Dir. PCSupt. Manuel Barcena signed Wednesday three joint letter directives that formed the JPSCC.

Sr. Supt. Reuben Theodore Sindac, Public Information Officer of the PNP, said the JPSCC would facilitate the enhancement of capability and inter-operability of military and police units to ensure that “local stakeholders attain a safer place to live, work and do business,” among others.
