FEDERATION OF CITIZENS CRIME WATCH-SPECIAL TASK FORCE
"United to take a Stand for a Safer and Better Community"
As a modest community initiative, Federation of Citizens Crime Watch-Special Task Force was formed from various Anti-Crime group whose purpose to unify and strengthen each other to be an effective Anticrime group and was also created as defender-community collaborations to improve public safety, government accountability and reduce the number of victims, are consistent with those of law enforcementagencies in providing information about crime prevention and the justice system to the community.
This program creates an alliance of citizens working with all coordinating government agencies to address the growing crime problem in the community. Through the Federation of Citizens Crime Watch-Special Task Force, citizens are educated in areas such as personal protection, home security, all kinds of crime reporting, environmental education, micro-economic, human and peace development programs.
Its programs are all designed to encourage citizens to band together to fight crime, indulge in socio-civic actions, environmental initiatives, cultural promotion, anti-drug abuse campaigns and many more bringing change in their respective neighborhoods throughout the community. Citizens' Crime Watch still proves to be a more than a viable crime prevention program that is instrumental in promoting police/community relations.
Moreover, some of these community based programs involves citizens more than patrolling their community, assisting all law enforcement agencies such as Philippine National Police, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and other pertinent agencies in detecting, preventing crime but rather mobilize volunteers annually on work projects assisting host communities through volunteer service, direct project funding and child sponsorships.The opportunity for human and economic development generates hope. And where there is hope, there can be peace.
It was founded on December 2017 by Director Mark Ybanez Gabumpa former Special Drug Education Director and a retired US Navy specialized on Diving and air warfare and a decorated Persian Gulf Veteran.
