The Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) and the United Korean Community Association (UKCA) in
Northern Luzon formalized their partnership to beef up the safety of Korean nationals in the city through signing of a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) held at Cafe Will, Baguio City on July 19.
City Director Francisco Bulwayan, Jr. and Maj. Nixon Budikey, station commander of Station 5, while Kim Kihwak, president of UKCA Northern Luzon and the three Vice Presidents Jinseob Hyun; Jung Junyoung, and Hong Suk Yoon, signed the MOA.

Further, the MOA was also signed by Benjamin Macadangdang, the representative of Mayor
Benjamin Magalong and Sanghoon Jang, the Consul Assistant of the Korean Embassy. Under the agreement, this partnership aims to look after the welfare of Koreans living and doing business in the city and will help them in return for their anti-criminality efforts by conducting a joint patrol with Legarda PS5 within the different areas of Baguio City, especially establishments and areas
frequented by Korean Nationals.

Aside from the agreement, the Baguio CPO also aims to launch Korean Language Proficiency Classes, wherein Baguio CPO operatives will be taught Basic Korean Language at the UKCA office.
The BCPO ensured that every Korean resident, visiting tourist, or student feels empowered to report incidents without fear, knowing that their concerns will be taken seriously and appropriate action will be taken.
