This study aimed to determine the collaborative leadership among the commissioned officers in the Philippine National Police in Davao del Norte and to enhance the police-community relation program. There were 310 Non-Commissioned Officers in the Philippine National Police assigned in Davao del Norte who participated in the survey. The study used stratified sampling and employed statistical tools such as Mean, Standard Deviation, T-test and analysis of variance. The findings revealed that the level of collaborative leadership of commissioned officers in the Philippine National Police is very high. Further, it was found that collaborative leadership does not differ significantly when analysed by sex, rank, educational attainment and length of service. A program is proposed to enhance the relationship between police officers and the community.
