Members of the Barangay Tanod Brigade otherwise known as Barangay Peace and Order Security Officers underwent a series of training for self-defense organized by the City DILG and City Government so they could protect themselves while performing their duties.
BPSOs serve as force multipliers who conduct patrols and gather intelligence to prevent or solve crimes that may happen in their neighborhoods to ensure peace and order.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said that in recognition of their service, qualified tanods or BPSO will receive cash incentive at P 2, 100.00 each from the City Government on a quarterly basis or every three months.
BPSOs are under the direct supervision of the 30 Punong Barangays and the City Police. Those who completed the training basically for knife and arnis techniques including the fire drill and lectures are eligible to receive the quarterly cash incentive from the City Government.
