Matatapos na ang kalituhang dinaranas ng publiko sa pagtawag sa ranggo ng mga kapulisan at sundalo dahil ganap nang nilagdaan ng Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang batas na nagtatama sa mga ito.

Ang Republic Act 11200 na para sa PNP rank classification ay kabilang sa mga pinakahuling batas na nilagdaan ng Pangulo na una nang itinulak at inisponsor ni Senador at dating PNP Chief Panfilo Lacson sa Senado.

Sa ilalim ng naturang batas, klinaro na ang mga ranggo ng PNP sa mga katugmang katungkulan ng mga ito.

“This measure eliminates confusion on how our law enforcers must be addressed, and brings our policemen closer to the populace. More importantly, this allows for better coordination between the PNP and other law enforcement units in countering terrorism and other threats to national security,” paliwanag ni Lacson.

Filipinos stand to benefit twofold from a new law authored by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson that provides for rank classification in the Philippine National Police.

President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act 11200, which standardizes the way PNP officers are called, into law last Feb. 8.

“This measure eliminates confusion on how our law enforcers must be addressed, and brings our policemen closer to the populace. More importantly, this allows for better coordination between the PNP and other law enforcement units in countering terrorism and other threats to national security,” said Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001.

Read: Senate Bill 1869, An Act Providing for the Rank Classification in the PNP

Senate Bill 1869, which amends Section 28 of RA 6975, aims to eliminate public confusion on PNP terminologies and to bring the police force closer to the populace.
