Brgy. San Bartolome of QC places 2nd in 2015 National LTIA

Barangay San Bartolome of Quezon City emerged as one of the best lupon tagapamayapas in the country in the 2015 National Lupon Tagapamayapa Incentive Awards (LTIA). 

The LTIA aims to highlight the role of lupons in communities and their resourcefulness in resolving cases under the Katarungang Pambarangay (KP) or barangay justice system. 

DILG Secretary Ismael Sueno, together with DILG-NCR Regional Director Maria Lourdes Agustin and Assistant Regional Director Juan Jovian Ingeniero awarded the lupon members of Barangay San Bartolome, headed by Punong Barangay Lamberto Pascual in a ceremony last October 27.  

The awarding, which coincided with the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) conferment is part of the Department’s efforts in recognizing exemplary efforts of local government units in addressing the needs of its clientele.   

A plaque and P75,000.00 cash prize has been given to Barangay San Bartolome as one of the frontrunners of the award. Barangays were assessed based on efficiency in operations, effectiveness in securing the objectives of the KP program; and creativity and resourcefulness of the lupong tagapamayapa. 

Barangay San Bartolome was hailed the Best Lupon for the National Capital Region and represented the NCR in the National Level of the award. A National Awards Committee was in charge of the 2015 national validation conducted earlier in the year. The Committee is composed of officials from the DILG, Department of Justice (DOJ), Supreme Court (SC), National Peace and Order Council (NPOC), Liga ng mga Barangay (LnB) and representatives from two non-government organizations.  

Regional Director Agustin expressed her felicitations for Barangay San Bartolome for winning in the 2015 National LTIA, which is a testament of the barangay’s hard work in creating a safer environment for the residents of San Bartolome. 

“I laud the lupon tagapamayapa and officials of San Bartolome for their success in the 2015 National LTIA. To stand out from more than 42,000 barangays in the country is not an easy feat. I hope that this award will become an inspiration to all the barangays in the region to continue their steadfast efforts in ensuring peace in the community,” she shared.#
