As a manifestation of how serious Olongapo City is in the campaign towards a peaceful and orderly environment, the annual “Peace and Order Parade” will be held again on Friday July 03, 2009 starting from the Olongapo City Mall going to the East Tapinac Oval Track where a short program will follow.

In an interview with DMO Head Angie Layug over Subic Broadcasting Corporation dwGo AM radio, he said that Olongapo City is the only city in the Philippines that conducts Peace and Order Parades that is jointly participated in by civilians, the police and military.

“The Peace and Order Parade is intended to show unity among law enforcers and the people of Olongapo in keeping the city peaceful and orderly ,” Layug said. “It is a laudable brainchild of Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr.”

In its 5th year of observance, the parade will be participated in by the Philippine National Police (PNP), Disaster Management Office (DMO), Barangay Public Safety Officers, cadet officers, Office of Traffic Management and Public Safety (OTMPS), fire and rescue team, business sectors, teachers, city government employees and officials and a delegation from the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy (PMMA).

Recently, Olongapo City was awarded for having the Best City Peace and Order Council in 2008 by the National Peace and Order Council in recognition of the exemplary performance of POC’s around the country, 2008 Best City Disaster Coordinating Council and 2008 Best Government Emergency Responder.

Mayor Gordon’s program on peace and order has been consistently effective and efficient all through the years as evidenced by the awards.
