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.
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.
In both formal and informal occasions, I often stress that this is the point in my life where I certainly have more yesterdays than tomorrows. I tell you, as I gaze into my ‘yesterdays,’ I cannot help but realize how much has really changed in every aspect of our lives.
Let me share with you — in the late 1950s, when I was a young elementary student in a sleepy town of Imus, Cavite, I had a vivid memory of a lone policeman we simply referred to as “Kabo.”
He was a highly esteemed and respected man assigned to keep peace and order in our almost obscure barangay called Barrio Bayanluma then.

In Cebu, Sen. Lacson led the PNP Foundation Inc.’s turnover of mountain bikes and other equipment to the Police Regional Office 7. The mountain bikes would be useful for police work in beaches and parks where tourists are concentrated. Sen. Lacson, who chairs the PNPFI, is an Adopted Son of Cebu, having served as Commander of Cebu Metrodiscom from 1989 to 1992. Following is the text of his speech at the event.
Police Brig. Gen. Debold Sinas, Police Brig. Gen. Agustin, Police Brig. Gen. Gillamac, the members of the Regional Staff and other officers and personnel present, my Senate staff as well as the PNP Foundation Inc. staff, my former comrades in the Cebu Metrodiscom in Metro Cebu, maayong buntag sa inyong tanan.
First of all, let me personally thank the officers and men of PRO-7 for the warm welcome that you have given me and my staff. Rest assured that I will always be a friend of the PNP in heart and spirit in whatever capacity, either as Chairman of the PNP Foundation Inc., or as an elected Senator of the Republic, especially in my role as Vice Chairman of the Committee on Finance of the Senate.
For the past several years that I have been actively participating in the national budget deliberations, I always make sure the PNP will get the necessary budgetary requirements to more efficiently accomplish your mission.
