Camp Olivas, City of San Fernando, Pampanga- With less than 3 weeks after its launching, the Adopt a Family Program of Police Regional Office 3 has already provided assistance for 2,464 families with 10,886 family members regionwide.
PBGEN RHODEL O SERMONIA said that the Adopt a Family program aims to help families who are most in need and supply them with their basic food commodities during this Enhanced Community Quarantine period.
"We are sending strong message to the public, particularly our Region 3 community, that indeed, their police, are part of their families who are providing them with support and hope especially these trying times. This is also a good way to prevent incidents of looting and burglary because of the "no work, no pay" situation and constraint public movement," PBGEN SERMONIA added.
Relatedly, since the start of the Enhanced Community Quarantine last March 17, only 4 robbery incidents in major establishments were recorded in Bulacan, Nueva Ecija and Pampanga.
