Village peace body to take oath

By Venus H. Sarmiento

DAGUPAN CITY -– Members of a barangay peace-keeping body are slated to take their oath before Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronald V. Puno on August 14 at the Narciso Ramos Sports Center in Lingayen.

The Barangay Peacekeeping Action Team (BPAT) was organized by the police provincial office to give additional support to authorities in ensuring peace and order in the barangays.

Members of the BPAT are from 131 barangays of the province, with each barangay having 10 members.

At the KBP Forum Thursday at the Philippine Information Agency office, police Provincial Director Percival Barba was quick to dismiss that the BPAC was formed for political reasons. He said the organization of such teams is a directive from the national headquarters of the police force.
