THE Quezon City Police District (QCPD) said 6,179 beneficiaries benefitted from the weeklong Community Outreach Program it conducted across various barangays in Quezon City.

Led by P/Col. Geoffrey Fernandez, Chief of the District Community Affairs and Development Division (DCADD), the initiative aimed to foster stronger ties between law enforcement and the community.

From June 7-13, 2024, the QCPD, alongside the District Mobile Force Battalion (DMFB), Police Stations 1 to 16 and Advocacy Support Groups, conducted 66 Community Outreach Programs.

These events covered a range of activities, including informative lectures, distribution of essential items, livelihood programs, environmental initiatives, and dialogues.

The program included lectures on Community Anti-Terrorism Awareness (CATA), Buhay Ingatan, Droga’y Ayawan (BIDA) Program/Drug Awareness, Crime Prevention Safety Tips and various laws addressing social issues.

Additionally, practical initiatives like livelihood programs, tree planting and clean-up drives were organized to enhance community well-being and environmental sustainability.

P/BGen. Redrico Maranan, QCPD director, said: “Our goal is not just to enforce the law but to be a partner in community development.

By addressing both the safety and welfare needs of our citizens, we are working towards a more resilient and united Quezon City.
