CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, July 8(PIA) – – More than 200 fruit bearing and forest tree seedlings were planted today at the compound of remote school in barangay Lacnog East, this city in celebration of the 25th Police Community Relations (PCR) Month.

They have been partnering with civil society organizations and local government units in support to the government’s programs and projects for the protection of the environment even during this time of COVID-19 pandemic.
Along with the advocacy for care of the environment, police personnel also lectured on the anti-terrorism law calling on the youth to concentrate on their studies and on worthwhile activities that help in the development of the school and community.
Police Lt. Ruff Manganip also urged the youth to support the law and refrain from joining student activism. Information materials were also distributed to SK members and residents.
Personnel of the 1st KPMFC also helped the school cultivate their backyard garden for the pupils to plant vegetables. They committed to help the school in any capacity as they did in other schools where the unit contributed money for the purchase of materials needed to repair damaged and dilapidated classrooms.
