Speech at the 74th Anniversary of the PNP Crime Laboratory

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

Lacson sa PNP Leadership: Dapat Hindi Lang Push-Up

Magandang panimula ang push-up pero dapat na sundan ito ng higit na epektibong sistema ng pagdidisiplina sa mga tiwali at mapang-abusong pulis hanggang sa muling tumino ang Philippine National Police (PNP).

Ito ang naging tugon ni Senate Committee on Public Order and Illegal Drugs Chairman at dating PNP Chief Panfilo Lacson, kasunod ng nabanggit parusa na ipinataw ni PNP Chief Ronald dela Rosa sa ma pulis na sangkot sa pangingidnap at pangongotong sa mga Koreano sa Angeles, Pampanga.

“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?” banggit ni Lacson nang matanong sa naturang usapin.

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.

Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001, said the public expects more positive action other than a strong reprimand, such as meting out the commensurate punishment for erring police personnel.

“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 Suspends Hearings on ‘Tokhang-for-Ransom’ amid Government’s Restructured Anti-Drug War

Citing the government’s focus on rogue police personnel in its restructured war against illegal drugs, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is suspending the Senate’s hearings on “tokhang for ransom” incidents involving scalawags in uniform.

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.
