Training for effective law enforcement

To intensify the investigation of cases in the City, the Dr. Jovito Salonga Center for Law and Development conducted a training for members of the Philippine National Police-Dumaguete City (PNP-Dgte).
The one-day training-seminar held at the Moot Court of the Silliman University (SU) College of Law last February 26, 2010 provided the participants with new insights on case investigation following recent jurisprudence, legislative enactments, and legal issuances.
Assistant City Prosecutor Angela Charina M. Cortes lectured on the New Rules of Inquest Proceedings and Article 125 of the Revised Penal Code (RPC). Atty. Ramon Nakao, a faculty member of the SU Law and a known lawyer in criminal law, handled the session on the Preparation of Affidavits of Complaint. On the other hand, City Prosecutor Eliezer P. Escorial talked about the Handling and Processing of Evidence.
At the end of the training, student volunteers of the Salonga Center facilitated the Role Playing wherein the participants were confronted with cases on buy-bust operation, kilum-kilum, and children in conflict with the law and were given the chance to apply their newly-acquired knowledge. City Prosecutor Escorial gave his comments and insights based on the law and jurisprudence.
Salonga Center Director, Atty. Mikhail Lee L. Maxino expressed his sincerest thanks to the participants and guest speakers for being part of a necessary step in ensuring crime prevention and proper prosecution in the city. He also lauded the PNP-Dgte and the Dumaguete City Peace and Order Council, co-sponsors of the event, and the organizers for the ideas and flow of the program.
