The University of St. La Salle sought the help of the City Government and the Police in addressing the growing problem of peace and order and traffic congestion along La Salle Avenue, C.L. Montelibano Drive and B.S. Aquino Jr. Drive.
In a letter addressed to the City Government, Director for External Relations Rhoderick K. Samonte called for a Dialogue-Conference on Peace and Order on January 31, 9:30 am -12:00 pm at Room 10 to discuss the extent of the problem that is affecting the USLS community and its neighborhood and how the local government, its concerned agencies, the police and the university community can collectively curb lawlessness and provide permanent and lasting solution to the problem.
The common problems identified by the University that are affecting its students and faculty are theft and robbery, physical violence and threats by outsiders and lawless elements and traffic congestion during peak hours due to lack of discipline among motorists and pedestrians and inadequate enforcers of traffic rules.
Invited as resource persons are Mayor Bing Leonardia, Councilor Elcid Familiaran, Councilor Dindo Ramos, Villamonte Brgy. Captain Andre Victor Las Piñas, Sr. Insp. Leilani Garcia (BAC-UP 4 Chief) and Sr. Insp. Levi Pangue (Chief, Bacolod Police Traffic Management Unit). To participate in the said conference are members of the top administration and representatives of the students, alumni and parents. Representatives of homeowner associations and public transportation associations surrounding the University have also been invited.
