The Iloilo City Peace and Order Council (CPOC) got a perfect score in the 2021 POC Performance Audit of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Office 6.
Mayor Jerry Treňas said the recognition is a testament to the success of the city’s collaborative efforts in maintaining peace and order, public safety, and security in the metropolis.
DILG-6 Regional Director Juan Jovian Ingeniero who is also the Secretariat Head of Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) released the results recently.
“After a thorough assessment of the documents by the Regional Audit team, the City Peace and Order Council garnered 100% in 2021 and 87.50% in 2019, above the national average,” Ingeniero stated.
The national average ratings are 73% and 75.52% for 2019 and 2021, respectively, he added.
Iloilo City Anti-Drug Abuse Council (ICADAC) also got a high functional rating of 90% in 2021.
“Allow us to recognize the City Peace and Order Council for its significant contributions over the past years. We congratulate you for the exemplary performance as a council,” Ingeniero wrote Treňas.
“The Department looks forward to the continued exercise of duties and responsibilities for the improvement of the CPOC’s functionality. May you continue to be our partner in implementing our peace, security, and development agenda towards building peaceful, orderly, and safe communities,” said Ingeniero.
CPOC serves as a platform for stronger collaboration of the City Government with law enforcement agencies and the community to fight criminality and illegal drugs and creates an enabling environment among its members to harmonize and effectively implement peace and order and public safety activities.
