Seminar on Children in Conflict with the Law (CICL)

Living up to its being a child-friendly municipality, Inabanga recently sent a team to Cebu City to attend a four-day seminar on Children in Conflict with the Law (CICL).

  Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officer Artemia Samaco led the team comprised of Lourdes de la Torre also of the MSWDO, Grace Cortes representing the local Philippine National Police (PNP) and Sangguniang Bayan member Nena Melecio to the Golden Valley Hotel..

  Mayor Jose Jono Jumamoy said Inabanga does not participate in such activities for the award alone. Instead, his administration sees such awards as inspiration in order to do even more. To note, Inabanga was adjudged the Most Child-riendly municipality in 2007.

  He said the town always puts to the fore the interest and welfare of its children. It monitors their best interest. After all, he said, the children are the town's future leaders.

Learning how to handle children including CICL equips his team with the wherewithal to deal with them when the situation calls for it, hence the seminar, he said.
