Peace and Order is of vital importance in every community. Safety is included in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs that one needs to satisfy after the physiological needs. That is how important safety is to every human being, this being the case the government is giving prime significance in maintaining the peace and order situation in every locality.

For the City of Tanauan, there is the active presence of the Philippine National Police, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, and Bureau of Fire Protection.


The Tanauan City main PNP headquarter is located at #142, Mt. View Subdivision, F Platon St., Brgy. Poblacion 3 within the premises of the city hall and with a total land area of 162 square meters. It has three (3) sub stations located at Barangay Sambat , at  the intersection of JP Laurel highway and A. Mabini Ave., and at Barangay Ulango. Ideally, the minimum standard police-population ratio is 1: 1000, however the table below shows the active PNP personnel at Tanauan City for the last three years indicates that there is a need for more policemen in the city.



Although there is an increase in the number of PNP personnel from 2007 to 2009, it still cannot accommodate the increasing population. Following the ideal police to population ratio of 1:1000, for 2009 given the population of 150,596 for the said year, there is a need for 150 policemen. Clearly, the table above reflects the need for 74 more policemen for the year 2009. At present, a single police officer is taking care of the safety of the 1,982 civilians.

To augment the situation, the barangay safety officers (barangay tanod) as well as Lupong Tagapamayapa are actively participating in keeping the peace and order situation within their barangay. Specifically, the barangay tanod patrols the barangay against lawless individuals while the Lupong Tagapamayapa settles the cases which can be decided within the barangay level. Furthermore, Barangays are equipped with barangay vehicle to carry out services. This is also done to prevent jail congestion for petty crimes/offenses.  Table 2 shows the number of personnel doing the said functions.
