SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union, May 19 (PIA) — The Regional Search Committee (RSC) have chosen five Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel and their families to compete for the Search for Model PNP Families nationwide as part of the annual celebration of National Crime Prevention Week slated on September.
This activity seeks to strengthen the PNP-Integrated Transformation Program objectives by motivating and encouraging law enforcers in putting more emphasis and value on the moral aspect of the transformation program of the PNP for a more competent, respectable and responsive police force, according to Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary and National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) chairperson Jesse M. Robredo.
The finalists include SPO4 Rodrigo N. Noe of Aringay Police Station, SPO4 Igmedio L. Dugena of San Fernando City Police Station, Police Chief Inspector Judy B. Calica of Bauang Police Station, SPO3 Arcellie O. Pang-ag of Burgos, La Union and SPO4 Elmer G. Jaramel of Sta, Cruz Police Station.
The RSC is composed of Holcim Philippines Manager as chairperson, DILG and NAPOLCOM regional directors as co-chairpersons, PNP representative and Ilocos Sur League of Civil Societies president as members. The committee conducted on-site visitation and validation on the five finalists.
According to RSC, these PNP families were assessed and evaluated on four major criteria to include: a family where the husband and wife demonstrate love and respect for each other, a family whereby the parents demonstrate their love and respect for their children, a family where the children love, honor and respect their parents and one another and a family where its members are involved in a community affairs particularly one that fosters community service, peace and order.
The winners will be awarded with a plaque of recognition and cash incentives during the National Crime Prevention Week on September.
The search for PNP Model Families is a project by the NAPOLCOM with the DILG, PNP and other member-organizations of the National Crime Prevention Week Interagency Technical Working Committee. It was first launched last September 1, 2011. (ANL/MHH-PIA1 La Union with reports from RSC/balita.ph)
