What is the Search for the Outstanding Barangay Tanod?

The Search for the Outstanding barangay Tanod is a pioneering project of the Regional Management Coordinating Committee of Region VI composed of DILG agencies (DILG-LG, NAPOLCOM, BFP, BJMP, PNP and PPSC-RTS6) which recognizes the contribution of volunteer peace-keepers in the barangay-the Barangay Tanods.

This is in recognition of the strategic role of Barangay Tanods who act as the front liners in the preparation and response to any type of atrocities, public disorders, emergencies and even disasters or man-made calamities that threaten peace and order and public safety. Their spirit of volunteerism and unwavering concern for the community deserves to be recognized and honored through the conduct of the Search for the Outstanding Barangay Tanods.


It aims to provide incentives and awards to best performing Barangay Tanods (individual and group); strengthen the volunteer system and auxiliary network between and among public and private responders; strengthen the monitoring system at various levels and provide a vehicle for improvement of skills, knowledge and techniques in pursuit of the preservation of peace and order and public safety
