Kids visit DCPO

IT WAS a kid’s day at the city police headquarters.

On Friday, more than 200 youngsters visited Camp Domingo Leonor as the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) aims to build a good relationship with the kids.

The first batch composed of around 150 children from the Davao City Alliance Gospel Church visited the camp in the morning.

The second batch with some 70 children from the SOS Children’s Village Davao arrived in the afternoon.

DCPO spokesperson Senior Inspector Catherine Dela Rey said the children’s visit is a plus factor to the city police force.

Dela Rey said the visit will help the children to know and understand more how the police work.

It will also enhance a good relationship between the policemen and the children.

During the educational tour, the police conducted a short presentation of the police duties and responsibilities.

“The children were oriented with the works of the police in the different units,” Dela Rey said.

Among those presented were the K9 unit, the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team, police personnel on their type A and B uniforms, bike patrollers and members of the City Public Safety Company (CPSC) in their combat uniform.

Some of the visitors are young as three years old.

Dela Rey said Friday’s event was not the first time that the DCPO was included in the educational tour of the children, and certainly it will not be the last.

She encouraged schools and other similar groups to include a visit at the DCPO in their future tour.
