PNP Northern Samar start off Disiplina Muna campaign
CATARMAN, Northern Samar, July 13 (PIA): The Philippine National Police, Northern Samar Police Provincial Office ushered the launching of Disiplina Muna, a nationwide advocacy campaign during the Monday Flag Raising ceremony held at NSPPO grounds.
“Today, we will officially launch the Disiplina Muna Advocacy Campaign to re-build the culture of discipline among Nortehanons, especially the youth. This is a whole of nation approach to a sustainable solution to the greatest challenge of this time,” said DILG Provincial Director Danilo Laguitan.
As initiated by DILG, the campaign which aimed to increase consciousness among Filipinos of their critical role and responsibility in sustainable development and maintenance of law and order is but an open source which could be adopted by all organizations across the national and local government, private sector, civil society and the media.
DILG sets the seven main programs under the Disiplina Muna concept and these are on Road Clearing, Oplan Listo, Anti-Smoking, Ease of Doing Business or the Anti-Red Tape, Liquor Ban, Tourists spots clean up and Functional Anti-Drug Abuse Council (ADACs).
Before the PNP officers, PD Laguitan stressed that change must start within one self. For the people to continue to look up to the police as their protectors, each should strive to embody the concept of discipline so as to properly present the whole organization to the public. It also means, not condoning the wrongdoing of others, but to correct it if possible.
The launching ended with the signing of #Disiplina Pledge. (ADiaz/PIA-Northern Samar)
