(Generous Officers Offering Desirable deeds; for a genuine Community Outreach Programs and Services) program in relation to the PNP OPLAN B.E.S. and Community Outreach Program in close coordination with the Child Development Worker, Mrs. Elenita Geniston.

During the said activity, lectures/dialogue on anti-illegal drugs and anti-terrorism campaign were also conducted to help disseminate the possible victimization and exploitation of the children on the menace of the illegal drugs and terrorism especially that children are one of the vulnerable sectors in our community.

The Oplan Bisita Eskwela – I Am Strong or Oplan “BES” started in 2018 through the initiative of DPCR purposely to generate stronger community partnership and sustain the crime prevention efforts and bring positive public perception towards the PNP. It also aims to shape and influence the students to be “STRONG” (Smart, Talented, Responsible, Obedient, Nice, God-fearing).

Meanwhile, the “GOOD COPS” Program that started since April 2018 is a brainchild innovation of Loon Police Team authored by PLTCOL NORMAN LOBRIGAS NUEZ, the previous Chief of Police of Loon PS and now being continued and practiced by this station under the leadership of the present Chief of Police (OIC), PMAJ REY OLAR, which stands for (GOOD – Generous Officers Offering Desirable deeds; for a genuine COPS – Community Outreach Program and Services). This program is designed to bring the police closer to the public; and to continue winning the hearts and minds of the community – an indispensable element in the attainment of its goal of making Loon a safer place to live, visit, invest and do business. The said Program has a simple concept of offering desirable and good deeds with generosity not only in the performance of their official mandate on bringing peace and order and ensuring public safety but also in their conduct of community outreach programs and other services.

Moreover, PCpl Cherryl Ivy F Ermela, Asst. PCR PNCO, gave a short overview of what the program is all about and hoping that the beneficiaries will appreciate the simple yet heartfelt gifts that was prepared by the Team Loon GOODCOPS which is also a way of sharing some blessings to the community. Whereas, PSMS Leonora M Molina, Chief PCR PNCO, also gave a short message and word of thanks for the opportunity to share and offer something back to the community for their tremendous support to the PNP.

Lastly, these activities were all in line with the 5-Focused Agenda of the Chief PNP, PGEN BENJAMIN C ACORDA, JR. particularly on Community Engagement which puts primary significance on public participation and involvement to realize sustainable peace, safety and progress for the country as well as the NTF-ELCAC , B.I.D.A. (Buhay Ingatan; Droga’y Ayawanprogram of the DILG and the PNP P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030.
