Santa Rosa wins ‘Safe Haven Award’
The City of Santa Rosa won the “Safe Haven Award” during the The Manila Times Philippine Model Cities awarding ceremonies at the New World Manila Bay Hotel last May 11.
The award is in recognition of Santa Rosa’s peace and order programs and situation.
The Manila Times Philippine Model Cities looks to recognize “effective and innovative local governance” that improves the quality of life and makes local business environments friendlier.
Santa Rosa’s efforts to work with and provide support to the Philippine National Police and other peacekeeping officers has ensured the safety of its residents and visitors.
The city government also formally opened Dangal ng Pagbabago Rehabilitation Center, the first ever local government unit-operated rehabilitation center in the country, last January.
Santa Rosa City Mayor Dan Fernandez opened the rehabilitation center in response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s call to help rehabilitate drug dependents who voluntarily surrendered to the police.
