The University of Baguio (UB) recently issued a computer set to the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group – North Central Luzon Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit (PNP CIDG – NCL CIDU).
The computer unit will primarily be used for CIDG–NCL’s new ICT-based project. The project, which was launched last January, is called the Criminal Biometrics Investigation System (CBIS). It will serve as PNP’s database that will contain the profiles of those with criminal records.
UB and PNP have forged a strong partnership over the years.
UB currently deploys its Criminology students at CIDG’s North Central Luzon headquarters. The agreement has been in the run for a decade now, according to Dr. Victor De los Santos, dean of the UB School of Criminal Justice and Public Safety.
UB and PRO-COR have also inked an agreement in February last year allowing Mass Communication and Broadcasting students of the University to serve as interns in PRO-COR’s Camp Bado, Dangwa office.
In addition, UB provides ICT trainings to the members of the PNP Regional Office–Cordillera Administrative Region (PRO-COR). For the past few years, UB has been organizing a series of digital literacy hands-on sessions for PRO-COR. In 2012, the University especially tackled the issue on cybersecurity, an area of defense and protection considered extremely significant especially in the armed forces.
UB is likewise providing scholarship to uniformed personnel of the Department of Interior and Local Government which include officers of the Philippine National Police, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, and Bureau of Fire Protection.
