COTABATO CITY  – The Police Regional Office Regional Advisory Council (PRO-RAC-12) was adjudged as the best RAC across the country and to be awarded by the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

“A very good news for all of us,” said Cotabato City Mayor Cynthia Giani-Sayadi who chairs RAC 12 in a statement Wednesday.

RAC 12 bested all other groups that provide advisory duties to the PNP at the regional level.  Coming in second was RAC in REgion 13 and RAC in the Cordillera in third place.

Guiani-Sayadi, a lawyer, has been the chair of RAC 12 in the past two years and it was during her term when the evaluation and assessment was conducted about the advisory body’s performance.

The RAC helps implement the PNP Patrol Plan 2030, or PNP Peace and Order Agenda for Transformation and Upholding of the Rule of Law (P.A.T.R.O.L.), the organization's strategy endeavors for real and lasting transformation through adaptation of the Balanced Scorecard as a management and measurement tool in order to attain its vision.

Guiani-Sayadi lauded all stakeholders saying this feat will not be achieved without the help of various sectors in the region.

The RAC acts as an advisory body that will provide the much needed external perspectives and guidance on the key issues and concerns in the PNP Regional Office 12.

RAC is composed of well-known leaders from the field of academe, media, local government unit, other government agencies, business, power and youth sectors.

The members are known for their integrity, leadership, model in transparency and good governance, advocate of human rights and transformation, and source of synergy.
