QCPD to establish 5 ‘discipline zones’
To bolster enforcement of laws and ordinances, the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) on Friday said it will implement five discipline zones in the city.
QCPD acting District Director, Brig. Gen. Ronnie Montejo, said the establishment of a zone where people are obliged to observe order, will serve as a good deterrent for crimes and a good way of enforcing discipline in homes and the community.
Montejo said the five initial areas which will be made discipline zones are Cubao, West Avenue, Katipunan Avenue, Timog Avenue-Tomas Morato area, and Novaliches proper.
“All city ordinances, special laws, criminal laws will be implemented there without fear or favor. Those who will be caught violating the law will be charged and imprisoned, while minors will be turned over to the (City Social Welfare Department),” Montejo told reporters during the press conference held at QCPD Station 10.
He said a dry run on the discipline zone will start on Monday.
According to Montejo, the discipline zone project of QCPD was supported by city government led by Mayor Joy Belmonte who vowed to provide manpower from different departments to help in manning traffic and apprehending violators of city ordinances.
