PIA Press Release

PNP 10 celebrates 19th founding anniversary

by Henry D. Daquipel

Cagayan de Oro (1 February) -- The Philippine National Police (PNP) is under an impetus to evolve with the ebb and flow of history, especially now when the changing needs of our country have demanded more from our men and women in uniform.

Thus said Police Chief Superintendent Danilo T. Empedrad, regional director of the PNP, region 10, as he delivered his opening remarks during PNP’s 19th anniversary, held at Camp Alagar, this city, February 1.

Empedrad stressed that the police today are not just "wilders of the sword and shield' but above all, they are moral compasses and partners in societal development of the community. He pointed out that the police must not only possess tangible skills but more importantly, they should have the right mindset and heart to do what is right, honest, and just.

Quoting Jose P. Rizal's words "Tal pueblo, Tal gobierno" (the government reflects the people governed), Empedrad admonished with his revised version "Tal policia, Tal pueblo" (the police reflects the kind of people in our country), focusing on the important role of the police as role models of the people.

He added that as the PNP moves forward into the future, more emphasis will be focused on acquiring modern equipment, upgrading of individual skills and capabilities, and learning of new doctrines and tactics. All these should be done to improve the delivery of service towards a modern police force.

Empedrad ended by calling on all men and women in uniform to reflect on the real essence of being a member of the force. He hopes that all the men and women of Police Regional office 10 will continue to live up to what the badge and uniform ask of them, in terms of moral conduct and ethical behavior. He also reminds everyone that the fight against lawless elements will be difficult if there is no help and participation of the community. (PIA 10) [top]
