Dir. Josephmar B. Gil, Regional Director of NAPOLCOM Regional Office 5 was the Guest of Honor and Speaker during the Seminar on Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism, hosted by Regional Training 5 at Ninong’s Hotel, Legazpi City on November 8, 2018.
As the participants are mostly from the Academe, he emphasized the need for deeper understanding of violent extremism, particularly among educators. They; according to him, have vital role in crafting a responsive character and competency framework to equip their students with the necessary knowledge, skills and attributes to enable them to effectively perform their duties and responsibilities as future community leaders.
Deans of all college of Criminology together with selected heads of government offices in Bicol Region attended the seminar.
