MANILA, Philippines — Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has urged officials and staff of the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) to intensify its campaign on crimes against women and children in the city.

Belmonte made the challenge to Quezon City’s police force during her speech at the 80th founding anniversary of QCPD yesterday, Tuesday (26 November 2019).

“Sana patuloy ko po kayong maaasahan sa pagpuksa natin sa mga lumalabag sa mga batas kontra violence against women and their children,” Belmonte said as she exhorted to police to help her in QC’s campaign against women and children and other crimes.

The mayor also called for strict enforcement of anti-catcalling and sexual harassment ordinances.

“Tayo ang pinakaunang lungsod na nagpasa ng mga batas na ito upang ipakita na nire­respeto natin ang ating kababaihan”, she added.

Meanwhile, Belmonte praised the QCPD’s anti-criminality campaign where the crime index dropped 12.10 percent while non-index crimes dropped 7.48 percent from January to September 2019.

As her way of thanking for “a job well done” the QCPD, the local government turned over two air-conditioned buses, bomb disposal robots, and sniper rifles.

“Kahit ano panghilingin ninyo ay ibibigay po ng Lungsod ng Quezon sa inyo, basta zero crime rate tayo bago matapos ang aking unang termino,” Belmonte added. (Gelica Paulo/IAMIGO/CNS)
