Eric Serafin Reyes and District 2 Councilor Shalani Soledad, engaged in a dialogue with Secretary Jesse Robredo of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG); Senior Supt. Isagani Nerez of the Police Anti-Crime and Emergency Response (PACER), and Ms. Teresita Ang-See, founding chairperson of the Movement for the Restoration of Peace and Order (MRPO).The event dubbed as "Dialogue on Anti-Kidnapping" was also attended by local law enforcers and barangay captains as well as members of the two leading business organizations in the city, the Valenzuela Business Club (VBC) and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Valenzuela, Inc.The project was launched to counter threats and provide necessary information to the public on how to deal with kidnapping scenarios, from the moment of abduction to the actual recovery process."We open this dialogue to hear suggestions on how to handle anti-kidnapping situations," the mayor said."It is our pro-active cooperation that will ensure our family neighborhood's protection, " he added.Robredo encouraged the public to fully cooperate with law enforcers in the event of an actual kidnapping."Most of the time, families refuse to cooperate with the police, thinking that their priority is the apprehension of the perpetrators of a kidnap incident.
