The Eastern Police District Advisory Council together with Station Advisory Councils of PaMaMariSan (Pasig, Mandaluyong, Marikina, San Juan), Batallion Advisory Council, EPD Technical Working Group (TWG) for PNP P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030 and the District Police Strategy Management Unit (DPSMU) convened the 1st Advisory Council Summit on June 5, 2019 at Club Filipino, Eisenhower St., Greenhills, San Juan City.

This year’s theme is “Combined Efforts Between Police and Community to Develop Strong Partnership Towards the Attainment of Good Governance”. It was attended by more or less two hundred (200) Advisory Council members, guest speakers, National Advisory Group for Police Transformation and Development (NAGPTD), NAPOLCOM Commisioners, distinguished civilian guests and PNP Officers in the whole Metro-East.

The EPD recognizes the importance of external stakeholders’ active participation and support in the realization of the PNP P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030. As such, the EPD’s version of the Multi-Sectoral Governance Council (MSGC) which is the National Advisory Group for Police Transformation and Development (NAGPTD) known as ‘NAG’ is replicated in the District Advisory Councils (DACs), and City/Municipal Police Stations Advisory Councils (C/MACs). The overwhelming continuing growth of external stakeholder advisers who were actively involved in the continuing holistic transformation journey of the EPD symbolizes their continuing support, trust and confidence of the community to the organization.

The efforts to improve crime prevention and solution of the EPD is well supported by the members of the Advisory Councils as part of their value-adding contributions to the EPD in order to achieve its vision of becoming a highly capable, effective, and credible police service.
