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.

In his media briefing on Aug. 13, 2018, PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde thanked Sen. Lacson for Senate Bill 1898, which gives the PNP full responsibility and accountability for training police recruits. Video courtesy: PNP Facebook page
“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.”
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.
