Best Practices

To support the strategic initiatives of DIPPO, here are our best practices and other initiatives that are contributory towards the realization of PNP PATROL Plan 2030.

The unwavering commitment to duty and service of Dinagat Islands PPO personnel through best practices and other initiatives has resulted in more positive and prolific outputs all geared towards the realization of Performance Governance System (PGS). Most of these adhere to an incisive, practical and theoretical study of a dynamic process that responds to and predicts emerging criminal trends.



The Dinagat Islands Police Provincial Office (DIPPO) which is located in the Municipality of San Jose, Dinagat Islands has noticed that the residents’ source of income is mostly farming and small fishing livelihood which is enough only for their prime commodities and cannot suffice other expenses especially for the education of their children. DIPPO chose Sta. Cruz Elementary School since it is the nearest and the most accessible school to the DIPPO Personnel for monitoring and evaluation of the recepients of this project.

The project DIPPO “Adopt-A-Learner” is a voluntary act of PNP personnel to help the identified less fortunate parents and pupils of Sta. Cruz Elementary School who were not able to provide the basic academic requirements and other miscellaneous fees. Further, to ensure that the students are doing their responsibility, Sta Cruz Elementary School, Department of Education, shall supervise the pupils and check that they are attending classes regularly. Likewise, the parents of the beneficiaries shall also ensure the regular attendance of their children to school.


“Libreng Sakay Patungo Sa Tabo Sa Kapitolyo”, a project of the PNP wherein Patrol Vehicles of respective municipal police station of Dinagat Islands Police Provincial Office roam around to offer free ride going to the Provincial Capitol Compound for the vendors and vendees to attend the Tabo.


PNP personnel buy products from the Tabo Sa Kapitolyo to be given away to the PNP adopted families and less fortunate households near the DIPPO building, PMFP Camp and Municipal Police Station to provide them with sufficient food for the week.
