800 students graduate from 'Pulis Ko' program

MANILA, Philippines - Some 800 Grade 4 students from different schools in the CAMANAVA (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela) area have graduated after completing the 2nd batch of the expanded "Pulis Ko Titser Ko Program" which teaches moral values to elementary students.

The program was made in cooperation with the Northern Police District (NPD), the Department of Education (DepEd) and some private sectors at 16 public schools in the CAMANAVA area.

On Tuesday, some 200 students graduated at the Gregoria de Jesus Elementary School at 9th Ave., Grace Park, Caloocan City at 1:30 p.m. with NPD director, C/Supt. Edgardo C. Ladao, and S/Supt. Roberto Villanueva, NPD chief of directorial staff leading the program.

Originally, the number of beneficiaries started with eight public schools in the CAMANAVA area. It was later increased to 16 public schools following the success of the first implementation. Students from Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela cities will also hold their graduation rites on Thursday.

The program was relaunched in September 2010 by NPD director Chief Supt. Edgardo C. Ladao who continued the project.

The re-launching was made in cooperation with the NPD-PNP; DepED, the Philippine Savings Bank (PSB) and the Bernabe's Store food chain which provided bags to the students as well as food services.

The "Pulis Ko Titser Ko" program was also supported by the four police chiefs who made it a point to tap more sponsors in their respective areas for the continued implementation of the program.

Former NPD director Chief Supt. Samuel Pagdilao Jr. has initially implemented the program starting with eight public schools.

Policemen from different police units were tapped to teach the students on different areas like subjects on crime prevention, drug awareness, child safety, welfare and development, lectures on patriotism, nationalism, and other matters.

    China faces a dilemma in Ayungin Shoal and other contested areas. If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
