Through the use of technology, DILG continuously improves monitoring scheme of local plans of local government units. DILG has developed an internet-based system that monitors the Peace and Order and Public Safety (POPS) plans of Local Government Units particularly on plan formulation, funding requirements and accomplishments. The LGUs were taught how to navigate the system through a roll-out activity on POPs Plan Policy Compliance Monitoring held at the Eagle’s Place, San Jose de Buenavista, Antique on September 22, 2017.
The Local Peace and Order Councils (LPOCs) are mandated to create a three year plan that contains LGU programs, projects and activities in maintaining peace and order in their respective communities as per DILG Memorandum Circular 2015-128.
Provincial POPS Plan Focal Person Mossad Vincent Araneta discussed how the system works and walked the participants thru the steps of encoding. “The participants are expected to encode the POPS Plan in the system, review for inconsistencies with the workbook and submit accomplishment reports.” said Araneta.                                                                 
Workshops, hands-on exercises and action planning were done by the participants composed of the MLGOOs, POPs Focal Persons and Budget Officers of all 18 municipalities of Antique. The system can also help check if there are inconsistencies in the data encoded and if their targets are achieved.
DILG Antique Provincial Director Victorio Pagapulan encouraged the participants to make use of the system in reaching their targets in maintaining peace and order. (LGOO II Judy Mae Magdato, DILG6-Antique)
