Dos and Don’ts in Local Police Power
What LGUs can and cannot do in the exercise of police power within their territorial jurisdictions
ABOUT THE COURSE
The module discusses what, under the 1991 Local Government Code (LGC), charters of local government units (LGUs), and special laws affecting local governance, LGUs can and cannot do in terms of the exercise of police power within their territorial jurisdictions.
The module covers the following topics:
- 12 Features of LGUs
- 12 Principles of Local Autonomy
- Powers of LGUs
- Defining Police Power and its Basis under the General Welfare Clause
- Lawful Acts of Police Power
- Unlawful Acts of Police Power
- Police Power under Extraordinary Times/ Bayanihan Act
As lawyers and students of law, and those affected by law at the national and local government levels, and that is us, the ordinary citizens, we have to hold LGUs and their officials accountable to us and responsible for our well-being.
We will learn the guideposts in assessing what can and cannot be done in furtherance of our general welfare.
