A show of force
NWU Maritime and Criminology students, human barricade during Pamulinawen 2020 Street, dances “Shine Your Way”
Responding to City Mayor Michael Marcos Keon’s invitation, about 700 Maritime and Criminology students of Northwestern University, were utilized as human barricade to ensure peace and order during the first street pageantry in Laoag City called “Na-Laoag” Street Dance Competition, one of the highlights of this year’s Pamulinawen Festival, held last February 10, 2020.
These students in uniform successfully managed and controlled the crowd along Rizal Street, as they watched the showcase of colorful and brilliant dances of the 15 clustered contingents from all the barangays in the city of Laoag.
Prior to the activity, the contingent attended a briefing with PCMS Ernesto Ramiscal, Chief Operation of Laoag City Police Station. They also joined the technical rehearsal on the night before the scheduled competition.
According to Marl Christianne Albayalde, Maritime’s Core Commander, their involvement in the activity is a part of their DLTL (Discipline Training and Leadership Training). The Criminal Justice Education students who are taking internships can as well add their participation in their training hours.
The students also entertained the audience as they performed the solidarity dance of the university, “Shine Your Way”, during the awarding program of the street dance competition, where Cluster 4 (consists of Barangay 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19) emerged as Champion.
