DUMAGUETE CITY, July 18 (PIA) – The Dumaguete City Parole and Probation Office (DCPPO) supports the celebration the 38th founding anniversary of the Parole and Probation Administration (PPA), a line agency of the Department of Justice.

DCPPO Chief Rene Remollo said the activities lined up for the occasion are anchored on the theme “Community based correction empowers community collaboration in redeeming lives and restoring relationships.”

The observance of the PPA’s 38th founding anniversary in Dumaguete City begins today with activities like thanksgiving mass and sportsfest for its clients (probationers and parolees) in Barangay. Batinguel.

But the highlight activity of the celebration will be the symbolic planting of 38 seedlings in the barangay which represents the 38 years of PPA.

There will also be a signing of memorandum of agreement between the City Government of Dumaguete and DCPPO about the maintenance of a tree planting site in Brgy. Batinguel.

To recall, some of DCPPO’s clients have already planted some seedlings in the area and right now these trees are fully grown. The agreement would allow probationers and parolees to continue to maintain the land and monitor the growth of the trees and other seedlings.

Remollo explained that they chose barangay Batinguel as venue for their activities since of the probationers and parolees as well as the volunteer probation aides live there.

Another highlight event is the formation of the Circle of Support to selected clients and joined by some members of the different sectors of the society.

The Circle of Support aims to form a strong support to the celebration of PPA’s 38th Founding anniversary that also coincided with the commemoration of the 21st Probation Week.

Meanwhile, these two occasions will be observed in the National Capital Region on July 24.

Based on Presidential Decree 968, “Probation is a disposition under which a defendant, after conviction and sentence, is release subject to conditions imposed by the court and to the supervision of a probation officer.” (mbcn/ral/PIA7-NegOr/ with reports from Rene Remollo, DCPPO Chief/Article first published at PIAw Web on July 18, 2014)
