The weeklong celebration started on September 1 and will last until September 7, 2022. This activity is spearheaded by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG-7) and the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM-7). 

Aside from free snacks, the students were also taught crime prevention through Project Safety First. This project focuses on the topics of self-awareness, and safety among young learners since these are vulnerable to violence and crimes.

This project is done in partnership with schools and the community in strengthening the measures in keeping the youth safe from any act of violence.

She added that they are also in regular coordination with the barangays in implementing the crime prevention measures in the region.     /rcg
