Project Description: "All of us aim for a peaceful and orderly place to live in. The aim for peace is not an easy path but we believe that this is possible through the combined effort of the government officials, police and responsible citizens. Crime is inevitable most especially in a city with a population growing rapidly and actions of people are greatly affected by the power of media. Through media people are more exposed and influenced to the negative values portrayed by criminals specially in the movies. As we grow and and open our eyes to realities, it is greatly alarming to view the ever increasing trends of crime, so the concerned citizens like the police officials are doing whatever they can to maintain peace and order. In the city of Baguio, Philippines, we can proudly say that crime is limited because of the following reasons: the policemen are conducting patrol in different places at all times, curfew hours are followed, standard operating procedures are followed when creating ordinances as well as when arresting violators.

In order to finish this website, we conducted researches from books and news papers about how to enhance security operations and procedures in the effective delivery of service to the people of the city, crime rates of several cities, and qualifications of policemen. We also interviewed policemen about peace and order, how they conduct their operations when crimes occur.

Our website aims to present a peaceful and orderly Baguio city. We do not have a zero crime rate but based on our researches and interviews our city has one of the lowest crime rates. We hope to present our viewers several proofs of how peaceful and safe Baguio is so that more tourist will be attracted and feel secured to visit our beloved city. When this happens, meeting of people from different places will be done thus international diplomacy will be achieved. "
