BAGUIO CITY – With the continuing assessment and evaluation for the search for best performing barangay in the city of Baguio, mayor Mauricio Domogan recently formed a search committee to select the outstanding Barangay Peace and Order Committee (BPOC) through administrative order no. 076.
The local chief executive will chair the committee with members from the Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education, Department of Interior and Local Government, Liga ng mga Barangay, Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection, and Business and Religious Sector and Non-Government Organization.
The committee will conduct table assessment on the documents submitted by the BPOCs of the barangays, undertake on-site validation at the barangays and submit city BPOC nominee along with its documents to the DILG-CAR.
Considering that the maintenance of peace and order is a prime concern of the government, both local and national agencies, the establishment of peace and order councils in all levels of government is needed.
Moreover, in the order, the City Human Rights, Justice, Peace and Order Council (CHRJPOC) recognizes the BPOCs as significant partners in the citywide implementation of peace and order and public safety initiatives.
Community affairs officer Noel Mabutas disclosed that the search committee will start the assessment and on-site validation this July.
The barangays will be evaluated based on its BPOC’s service delivery performance; effectiveness of their public safety plan; support system; policies plans and budget; accomplishment reports, among others, stressed Mabutas.
Apart from the BPOC, the performances of the 128 barangays in the city of Baguio are being monitored on its barangay administration and governance; social services; health, nutrition and sanitation; environmental management; public safety and competitive edge, added Mabutas. /Jho Arranz
