A line between BCPC Office and BCPC Interview Room

Written by Ma. Luisa Bautista

To set wall of boundaries for promotion of the confidentiality of the case and protection of the children.

One of the instances in dealing with children at risk (CAR) and children in conflict with the law (CICL) is the interview with Barangay Council for the Protection of Children (BCPC). Many fails the attempt to gather information during interviews because of many factors.

One of these factor is the failure to provide an accommodating, warm and welcoming atmosphere to the interviewee. Based from observation, interviews that were done in a comfortable and private area gives the interviewee the motivation to provide information and comfort of security to the confidentiality of their story.

With this, the Humanitarian Legal Assistance Foundation, Inc. (HLAF) Center for Restorative Action (CRA) Team encourage all the barangays to have a separate BCPC office and BCPC interview room.


At present, there are 19 barangays that have separate BCPC office and BCPC interview room.
