Our police officers need to undergo retraining. The new PNP chief Director General Raul Bacalzo realized the fact. First batch headed for PNP training school in Clarkfield, Pampanga are 30 policemen from Tuy, Batangas.
The two-week training course started yesterday, September 20. Bacalzo, a native of Tuy, announced that the training shall begin with policemen from his hometown. Police personnel from various stations nationwide shall also undergo training in the coming months.
Policemen who shall be sent to undergo this two-week training will have a refresher course on traffic management, criminal investigation, and right conduct, under the Police Capability Enhancement Program Training (PCEPT). This is according to Senior Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr., PNP spokesman.
This retraining is part of Director General Bacalzo’s goal to improve the service and professionalism of the police force.
If the PNP chief deemed this retraining important, then the officers under his authority should take this one seriously. For sure the training course has a required budget, and so all we can hope for is for them not to put anything to waste.
Improvement should always be part of anyone’s life. If you are capable of carrying out your duties and obligations, that’s where professionalism starts. If you serve the country and the people for the right cause and with the right intentions, that’s where dignity unfolds.
