Malawakang Internal Cleansing sa Gobyerno, Planong Gawin ni Lacson sa Kanyang Unang 100 Araw

Mas maayos na serbisyo publiko mula sa gobyerno – sa pamamagitan ng malawakang internal cleansing sa hanay nito – ang isa sa mga prayoridad ni Senador Ping Lacson sa kanyang unang 100 araw sa pamumuno sakaling mahalal na Pangulo sa Mayo 2022.

Ito ang siniguro ni Lacson na tumatayong standard-bearer ng Partido Reporma. Aniya, ang naturang paglilinis sa hanay ng gobyerno ay dadaan sa kamay ng batas.

“Ang massive internal cleansing, hindi ito indiscriminate. Base ito sa ebidensya na kung saan may mga kawani ng gobyerno na sa halip na tumulong, nakakaperwisyo pa sa pamamagitan ng katiwalian,” ani Lacson sa kanyang panayam sa DZRH nitong Sabado.

Lacson: Massive Govt Internal Cleansing to Enhance, Not Disrupt, Public Service

Enhanced, not disrupted. This will be the state of public services rendered by the government following a massive internal cleansing in the first 100 days of a Lacson Presidency.

This assurance came from Partido Reporma standard-bearer Sen. Panfilo “Ping” M. Lacson, who stressed Saturday that the cleansing will be evidence-based and follow the rule of law.

“Ang massive internal cleansing, hindi ito indiscriminate. Base ito sa ebidensya na kung saan may mga kawani ng gobyerno na sa halip na tumulong, nakakaperwisyo pa sa pamamagitan ng katiwalian (Such a massive internal cleansing will not be indiscriminate. It will be based on evidence against public servants who engage in corruption and other wrongdoing instead of helping their fellow Filipinos),” Lacson said in an interview on DZRH on Saturday.

Kakalusin ang Magnanakaw! Internal Cleansing of Government to be Priority Under Lacson Presidency

A stern internal cleansing of the bureaucracy will be a priority of Senator and Partido Reporma Chairman and standard-bearer Panfilo “Ping” M. Lacson, should he win the presidential election this May.

Lacson said it is time to purge the bureaucracy of public servants who betray their oath by failing to provide public service – or worse, by engaging in various forms of corruption including bribery and even extortion.

“Kakalusin dapat (We should get rid of them),” he said in an interview on DZME radio Wednesday afternoon, when asked what he would do with misfits in the government, especially those who steal.

Ping: Kriminal Lang ang Lagot sa PNP Fitness Policy

Magandang balita para sa publiko, at masama naman para sa mga kriminal ang fitness policy na inapatupad ng liderato ng Philippine National Police (PNP).

Ayon kay Senador at dating PNP Chief Panfilo Lacson na unang nagpatupad nitong programa sa institusyon, nangangahulugan ito na magiging mas handa ang mga pulis sa pagtugis sa mga kriminal.

Dahil sa nabanggit na programa, kikitid na mga lugar na magagalawan ng mga kriminal at sa kabilang banda ay magpapabuti sa pisikal na katawan ng mga pulis.

“If we have policemen and policewomen who are physically and morally fit, everybody indeed wins. Only the bad guys will lose,” banggit ni Lacson.

Lacson: PNP’s Fitness Policy a Win-Win for All – Except the Criminals

The fitness policy adopted by the Philippine National Police leadership is a win-win situation for all – except for the criminals.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this Tuesday as he lauded the PNP, which he headed from 1999 to 2001, for keeping alive what he considers his best legacy to the institution.

“I would like to think the best legacy I left in the police institution was the discipline that I instilled in my policemen who I enjoined to stop huffing and puffing with big bulging tummies. Instead, they maintained a maximum waistline of 34 inches so they would be trim and thin when they chased robbers and other criminals,” Lacson said.

Panukala ni Ping sa Mas Pinatinong Police Training, Batas Na!

thumbnail-pnp-training

Mailalagay na sa mas tamang estado ang mga nais maging miyembro ng Philippine National Police (PNP) matapos na maisabatas ang panukalang nagtatakda sa institusyong pagsasanayan ng mga ito na iniakda ni Senador Panfilo Lacson.

Ang Senate Bill 1898 ni Lacson ay naging ganap nang batas o Republic Act 11279 matapos na ito ay malagdaaan ng Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte noong nakalipas na Abril 12 ng kasalukuyang taon at isinapubliko nitong nakalipas na araw.

Sa ilalim ng naturang batas, mula sa Philippine Public Safety College (PPSC), ang PNP na ang mangangasiwa sa pagsasanay ng mga nais na maging miyembro ng kapulisan.

Batas Na! Lacson Bill Transferring Police Recruits’ Training to PNP Signed into Law

thumbnail-pnp-training

The Philippine National Police now has an added tool to build a physically and morally competent force while beefing up its internal cleansing efforts, after a bill authored by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson was signed into law.

Republic Act 11279 – based on Lacson’s Senate Bill 1898 – gives the PNP full responsibility and accountability for the training of its new recruits.

“With the transfer to the PNP of the training of police recruits, we can strengthen the foundation of a competent police force not just physically but also morally,” said Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001.

Ping sa PNP: Mga Nasibak na Pulis at Sundalo ang I-Profile, ‘Wag na Sina Ma’am at Sir

robber

Huwag na ang mga guro. Mga nasibak na pulis at sundalo na naging masamang elemento ng lipunan gaya ng gun for hire na lang.

Ito ang naging payo ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police Chief Panfilo Lacson sa ahensiya, matapos lumutang ang balitang isinailalim nito sa “profiling” ang guro na miyembro ng isang organisasyon.

“The PNP should instead conduct profiling and surveillance on dishonorably discharged PNP and AFP personnel to keep track of their post-discharge activities including their lifestyle,” mariing pahayag ni Lacson.

Kung mamo-monitor umano ng PNP ang aktibidad ng mga ito, maraming krimen sa bansa ang mabibigyan ng solusyon, at marami ring krimen ang mapipigilan katulad ng kaliwa’t kanang pagpatay.

“In that way, they may be able to solve a lot of crimes, even preempt them,” dagdag pa ng mambabatas.

Ping sa PNP: 7 Pulis na Trigger-Happy, Sibakin Agad!

pakistantoday

Malinaw na pagpapakita ng hindi pagpapahalaga sa buhay ang ginawa ng pitong pulis na walang habas na nagpaputok ng kanilang baril nitong nakaraang Pasko at Bagong Taon, kung kaya’t wala nang pagkakataon pa para sila ay manatili sa serbisyo.

Ito ang naging panawagan ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Panfilo M. Lacson sa kasalukuyang pamunuan ng ahensiya matapos na personal niyang malaman ang ginawa ng mga nabanggit na alagad ng batas.

Sa mensahe ng mambabatas sa kanyang Twitter account, ipinadama nito ang kanyang galit sa mga pulis dahil posibleng ang ginawa ng mga ito ay magdulot umano ng matinding kapahamakan o kaya ay kamatayan sa mga maaring matamaan ng bala.

“What if someone got hit and died, or paralyzed? Damn these scumbags! They have no purpose in life, really. Give them the boot ASAP, Chief,” saad ni Lacson.

Lacson: Trigger-Happy ‘Scumbag’ Cops Deserve Quick Boot

pakistantoday

No less than a quick boot will do for at least seven trigger-happy policemen who were caught firing their guns during the holiday season, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said.

Lacson, who went hard after rogue cops when he headed the Philippine National Police from 1999 to 2001, said these cops are “scumbags” who showed no regard for life.

“What if someone got hit and died, or paralyzed? Damn these scumbags! They have no purpose in life, really. Give them the boot ASAP, Chief,” he said in a post on his Twitter account Tuesday evening.

He also stressed the need for the PNP to sustain its internal cleansing efforts, pointing out that rogue cops “do not deserve to stay a minute longer in the police service.”

On Abuses by Some PNP Personnel Amid Upcoming Hefty Pay Hike

Starting January 2019, when the salary increase of policemen takes effect in compliance with Joint Resolution No. 1, it bears watching if ‘kotong cops’ will disappear from the street corners and dark alleys and instead focus on their job of protecting and serving the people.

I have high hopes that it will materialize, since with all the benefits and unprecedented salary hike accorded to the military and uniformed personnel, thanks to the strong political will of President Rodrigo Duterte who almost singlehandedly pushed for the same, there is every reason for right-thinking police officers to love and secure their profession, not to mention to be motivated enough to show a debt of gratitude to their Commander-in-Chief who made an almost impossible legislation to pass.

Looking back, I can’t help but realize how we – starting from our cadetship in the Philippine Military Academy, all the way to retirement from the uniformed service, were fed, clothed, sheltered, and provided with all the logistical support and more – should have no reason whatsoever not to give back all we can, even our lives to government and the Filipino taxpayers who spent for all that we needed.

That is why it is deplorable, to say the least, when we hear of ranking military and police officers who abuse their positions, steal government funds, and even the meal allowances of their men.

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 to PNP Leadership: Follow Up Good Start to Internal Cleansing Bid

Philippine National Police chief Ronald dela Rosa is off to a good start in implementing a much-needed internal cleansing of the police force but will need to go beyond scolding cops linked to wrongdoing, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said.

“Magandang mensahe, symbolic ang push-up at ang mura and everything, but it should go beyond that. Ang hinihintay ng tao, ano bang positibong aksyon aside from meting out the appropriate or commensurate punishment?” he said.

Lacson, who chairs the Senate committee on public order and illegal drugs that held a hearing on the matter last week, said it would be wise that the Senate wait and see how the major changes in the anti-drug war will work out.

“In view of the massive restructuring of the war against drugs to focus on rogue cops as ordered by the President, it is my view that the Senate wait and see how this latest development plays out. Having said that, I am suspending the hearings on the ‘tokhang for ransom’ issue,” he said.
