From the PNA: “This representation stands with the belief that the PNP can better serve the greater interest of the State if it assumes the mandate of the PPSC in the training and education of its personnel… As a consequence thereof, the PNP will be accountable to the entire gamut of responsibility from recruitment, education, field training, and deployment of police officers,” Lacson said.  Continue reading “🌐 Lacson sponsors bill transferring police recruits’ training to PNP [PNA]”

Sponsorship Speech: Committee Report on Senate Bill 1898 (Transferring Police Recruits’ Training to PNP)

Mr. President, at the outset, let me state here and now: there is something unique in this piece of legislation. There are two most unlikely people in the world to become one and united in pushing for its immediate passage: Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, the principal author; and President Rodrigo Duterte, who personally conveyed through the Senate President, Sen. Vicente “Tito” Sotto III, and the chairman of the House Committee on Public Order, Rep. Romeo Acop, that I give priority in sponsoring this measure. For a moment Mr. President, I toyed with the idea to have this picture PhotoShopped parang magka-holding hands sila, pero baka pareho sila magalit at mademanda pa ako.

It may be worth mentioning that Congressman Acop agreed to adopt the Senate version once we approve it on third reading.

For these reasons and more, it may be enough to just go through the motion of having this bill approved on second reading the soonest possible time.

“In line with the continued efforts of the PNP to reform and modernize, we are thankful to Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson for filing SB 1898, which when passed into law, shall vest the PNP with full responsibility and accountability in training and honing our new recruits and personnel as they prepare to enter the police service.

“The PNP has long been appealing to our legislators for Congress to revisit the law. It is high time the PNP take full responsibility in training our own personnel.

“Each year the PNP is authorized by Napolcom to recruit an average of 10,000 personnel to replenish the ranks of personnel separated due to retirement and attrition.”

Lacson Pushes Transfer of Police Recruits’ Training to PNP

To make sure its new recruits learn to uphold the law instead of violating it, it is high time the Philippine National Police take full responsibility – and accountability – for their training.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001, stressed this over the weekend, adding this should greatly help in the police force’s internal cleansing.

“In past months, we have seen how police officers, many of them non-commissioned ones with the ranks of PO1 and PO2, had been involved in heinous crimes. It’s about time we revisit the law to make the PNP the premier educational and training institution for our policemen and policewomen,” Lacson said.

Lacson is to sponsor this coming week Senate Bill 1898, which amends Sections 66 and 67 of Republic Act 6975. The present law mandates the Philippine Public Safety College to train police personnel.

Lacson: Pagsasanay sa mga baguhang pulis ipapaubaya na sa PNP

Ganap nang umusad sa Mataas na Kapulungan ng Kongreso ang panukalang masawata ang mga pang-aabuso at kriminalidad na kadalasan ay kinasasangkutan ng mga bagitong miyembro ng Philippine National Police (PNP).

Sa darating na linggo kasi ay nakatakda nang i-sponsor ni Senador Panfilo M. Lacson sa plenaryo ang Senate Bill 1898 na naglalayong ipaubaya na lamang sa PNP ang pagsasanay at pagtuturo laban sa kriminalidad ng mga baguhang tauhan ng ahensiya.

“In past months, we have seen how police officers, many of them non-commissioned ones with the ranks of PO1 and PO2, had been involved in heinous crimes. It’s about time we revisit the law to make the PNP the premier educational and training institution for our policemen and policewomen,” paliwanag ni Lacson tungkol sa naturang panukala.
