Nakipagpulong kamakailan lang si PNP Chief Debold M. Sinas sa mga opisyal ng UP-Los Baños upang pag-usapan ang community safety programs sa loob at labas ng campus.
Nitong Enero 28 ay nakipagkita ang PNP Chief kasama ang ilang opisyal ng Laguna PPO kay Dr. Jose V. Camacho, Jr., chancellor ng UPLB.
Sa nasabing pulong, humingi ng paglilinaw ang PNP ukol sa polisiya ng unibersidad sa pagsasagawa ng police operations sa loob ng UPLB community.
Kasama rin sa agenda ang isyu ng peace and order sa loob at labas ng campus, lalo na sa UPLB housing areas sa ilang mga lugar sa Laguna.
Nagkasundo ang dalawang panig na bumuo ng isang technical working group na gagawa ng memorandum of agreement para sa “UPLB Ko, Bantay Ko” program na planong ilabas sa Pebrero.
“The PNP seeks to build stronger collaboration among stakeholders to protect campuses against criminal activities, drug syndicates, and organizations that promote and espouse Local Communist Armed Conflict against government thru force and violence,” pahayag ni PNP Chief Sinas. Dagdag pa niya, “Academic freedom remains constitutionally guaranteed as we are also mandated by law to protect the future of our nation from danger posed by lawless elements.”
Nag-alok din ang Laguna police ng Investigation and Arrest Techniques Trainings at Drug Awareness Symposia para sa UPLB.
Siniguro naman ng UPLB ang suporta sa mga lokal na pulis sa kanilang mga operasyon. Nagmungkahi rin ang unibersidad ng memorandum of agreement para sa Off-Campus Graduate Program on Strategic Planning and Development Management ng mga kwalipikadong pulis ng Laguna PPO.
Sumang-ayon din ang dalawang grupo na magsagawa ng quarterly coordinating meetings o emergency meetings kasama ang Laguna PPO, Los Baños MPS, at mga barangay chair sa paligid ng UPLB campus.
