The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region 3 conducted the Roll-out Training on the Implementation of the National Action Plan on Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (NAP-PCVE) to Punong Barangays, Sangguniang Barangay Members, Barangay Tanods, Barangay Secretaries of 100 target participating barangays in Central Luzon via Zoom Videoconference on September 24, 2021.

 The activity was aimed to provide information and awareness to empower local communities to their roles and responsibilities to prevent violent extremism and other threat to peace and security.

In his message, OIC-RD Jay E. Timbreza stressed the importance of cooperation and coordination of each member of barangay to have a peaceful and orderly community.

"Walang makakatalo sa isang paghahanda kung lahat tayo ay handa at lahat tayo ay may sapat na kahandaan. Hindi po mangyayari ang mga karumal-dumal o mga pangyayaring makakapagbuwis ng buhay ng ating mga kasamahan sa komunidad o makakasira gayan ng nangyari sa Marawi." OIC-RD Timbreza said.

The NAP PCVE was crafted by the government to prevent radicalization leading to violent extremism through Whole-Of-Nation approach or the convergence of government, CSOs, religious sector and other stakeholders.
