July 4, 2015
BAGUIO CITY – A highly capable, effective and credible police service working in partnership with a responsive community towards the attainment of a safer place to live, work and do business.
This is the vision of the Philippine National Police PATROL Plan 2030 that the Police Regional Office – Cordillera(PRO-Cor) imparted during an information sharing and fellowship night with Baguio media and national correspondents under the PNP Press Corps last Friday.
Police Superintendent Cherry Olucan explained that the implementation of the PATROL plan is a follow-up to the Performance Governance System (PGS) that was integrated in the PNP Integrated Transformation Program that started implementation in 2005.
Key components of the plan are resource management through the optimal use of both financial and logistics funds; continuing learning and growth to develop competent, values oriented and disciplined personnel, as well as a professional organization; and achievement of process excellence.
As for PRO-Cor, Olucan shared that they have developed a scientific management tool in crime prevention such as the Crime Mapping System, e-learning system, the web-based Online Community Engagement System and e-Personnel engagement survey.
Other best practices, she reported are the Oplan Tambuli implemented in public markets, tourists spots and public transportation terminals; the Barangay Integrated Defense System; the conduct of youth leadership summit; the creation of the Regional Law Enforcement Cooperating Committee website and a Model Regional Tactical Operations Center.
The police regional office has been encouraging small units to develop and initiate best practices, she added.
PRO-Cor Director, Police Chief Superintendent Isagani Nerez in giving gratitude to the tri-media participants for their effort and suggestions to improve police service, also called for a continuing partnership especially in the advocacy of PNP programs for the achievement of a better and safer Cordillera.
PNP Press Corps president Joseph Cabanas, in behalf of the media, accepted the challenge and assured that media will play its role truthfully in the dissemination of information on peace and order and security.
“We are here to share the real picture presented by the PNP”, Cabanas said.
The program was followed by a fellowship night where PNP personnel and media practitioners enjoyed a night of music and singing under the accompaniment of the PRO – Cor band./JDP/CCD and Jenina Munoz – PIA CAR/UP Intern
