It aims to advance the plans and programs of the PNP in line with the advancement of women’s rights.

“Our women’s contribution to the order, safety, and peace of the community is enormous. Through them, who are empowered women, we can achieve true prosperity that makes our lives and the world better. Meanwhile, as part of the advocacy of the celebration of National Women’s Month, PNP Batangas continues to carry out activities related to gender equality and women empowerment,” said Soliba.
