Since the successful launching of the PNP Revitalized KASIMBAYANAN (Kapulisan, Simbahan, at Pamayanan) Program on October 10, 2022, Police Regional Office 6 has continued, and never fails to implement, significant programs and activities that would really support its personnel relative to the cascading and successful implementation of the said program throughout the region.
The Revitalized PNP KASIMBAYANAN program is a community mobilization program highlighting the synergized and collaborative partnership between PNP and the general public through the intervention and support of the religious sector towards the goal of a holistic transformation of our society by forging a stronger alliance between PNP and the people it serves and protects.
The program was launched earlier at the National level, and is now being cascaded to every region throughout the country. The Revitalized PNP KASIMBAYANAN Program provides an interplay among the three important sectors in our society; the police, church, and the community by transforming every PNP member to be community-based bridge builders, and maximizing every sector in the community to create an effective collaboration and meaningful involvement towards pre-empting, preventing and in solving crimes.
On October 13, 2022, the Police Regional Office 6 through its Regional Community Affairs and Development Division (RCADD) conducted a 2-day Cascading of the PNP Revitalized KASIMBAYANAN program. It was participated by 525 PNP personnel composed of Chief Provincial/City Community Affairs and Development Units; the QUAD Staff; Deputy Chiefs of Police; Municipal and City Executive Senior Police Officers and Police Community Relations Police Non-Commissioned Officers; Police Provincial/City Office and Deputy Force Commanders; Operation and PCR Commissioned and Non- Commissioned Officers of Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6; and Provincial and City Mobile Forces thru a zoom online platform set-up at the PRO6 Madia-as Hall in Camp Gen Martin Teofilo B Delgado, Fort San Pedro in Iloilo City.
Said activity aims to equip the police officers in embracing their roles in the successful implementation of the KASIMBAYANAN program. They were also given the overview of the current PNP peace and security framework: M+K+K=K, which stands for Malasakit plus Kaayusan plus Kapayapaan equals Kaunlaran.
