PIA Press Release

Reforms enhance PNP operations

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (13 August) -- The police intelligence work requires a strong community support and network.

Senior Police Officer IV Efren Clavaton, who is presently designated as Intelligence and Investigation Chief of the Roxas City Police Station, said that their high crime solution efficiency could be attributed to a strengthened intelligence network.

Calvaton, who is now on his 22 years in the police service, added that team work, dedication, in placed system and community support are among the vital factors for an effective police work.

Based on their record, about 95 percent of the crimes handled by their office are solved, he said.

Police Director General Avelino Razon, Jr. earlier revealed that the Philippine National Police (PNP) has achieved its modernization and development targets during the past 12 months that put the organization closer to the goal of a capable, effective and credible police office.

Razon pointed out that said significant achievement in structural, organizational and operational reforms are the results of the Integrated Transformation Program (ITP) that is being implemented by the PNP.

He explained that the ITP is the PNP's roadmap to effectively address all operational and administrative dysfunctions and other perennial reform issues confronting the organization.

According to him, the more immediate and prominent results are seen in the hiring of 3,000 police recruits in 2007 and the promotion of 27,000 in-service personnel to the next higher rank.

For this year, the PNP is hiring another 3,000 recruits, 10% of whom are reserved for women, in accord with the instructions of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Razon said.

Meanwhile, PNP Spokesperson Nicanor Bartolome said that the downtrend in Crime Volume and the steady improvement in Crime Solution Efficiency are indications that the PNP has accomplished President Arroyo's instructions to provide the community with a climate of peace.

Bartolome added that the protection of human rights, which is the marching order of the President for the PNP, is also gaining ground. (PIA) [top]
