In Jolo, Sulu citizen volunteers known as PERVs (Preventing Election – Related Violence Volunteers) text in daily reports of violence or crime.
These reports are collated by the secretariat of the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (who is spearheading this initiative) and analyzed by a researcher and a security advisor. Depending on their assessment of the situation, the incident may be escalated to the board of eminent persons known as the Tumikang Sama Sama for conflict resolution.
