TFD aids LGUs in setting up security measures

THE TASK Task Force Davao (TFD) shared its expertise in urban safety and security with other cities in Mindanao, particularly on stringent border checkpoints.

Iligan City invited TFD to give a two-day workshop to their security forces.

TF Davao Commander Col. Darren Comia said delegates from Iligan City recently visited the TFD and other safety and security institutions in Davao City in a benchmarking activity last August 27.

“They were amazed by how we do it here. That’s why last November 14, we facilitated a workshop with the LGU of Iligan City including lahat ng security and safety forces nila doon. The workshop revolved around the creation of an integrated security plan to secure Iligan,” Comia said.

The TF Davao is crafting a deal with the local government of Iligan to assist in the creation of Task Force Iligan, Comia added.

During the workshop, the TF Davao discussed the security philosophy, concepts, and strategies of Davao City. 

Comia said some of Davao City’s institutional approach to security- the effective working relationship between the security sector and the general public, strong political will from local executives, and the legislations and policies promoting the implementation of cohesive security measures -are among the city’s best practices that other LGUs want to replicate.

Kidapawan City has also expressed its interest in mirroring the security measures implemented by the Task Force Davao. 

The cities of General Santos, Malaybalay, and Cotabato have also emulated some elements of the TF Davao’s strategies.

By collaborating with other municipalities in establishing integrated security strategies, Comia said a more expansive intelligence and information-sharing network can be established in the region.
