SAN FERNANDO CITY, Apr 16 (PIA) — The Philippine National Police’ Patrol 2030 has earned its third award for a trailblazing program.
The PNP’s PATROL or Peace and Order Agenda for the Transformation and Upholding of the Rule of law got the Silver Trailblazer award from a panel of local and international experts.
It sets the PNP’s agenda for transparency and accountability which had transformed the organization’s mindset from the traditional reactive practice to a more proactive and strategic process.
The program, which is under the PNP’s Integrated Transformation Program-Performance Governance System (ITP-PGS), went through a screening process under a panel of performance governance experts that included the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA), the National Competitiveness Council (NCC) and the Center for International Private Enterprise.
Chief Inspector Marlon D. Paiste, La Union police chief information officer, said the pnel gave the program a score of 8.5 out of 10 points.
The award was given during the Public Governance Forum held last month at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel.
Paiste said the La Union police contributed to the award by winning the region-wide search for best police provincial office for its efforts in making La Union the safest province.
“The award is a morale booster to the PNP rank and file and will motivate every policeman to strive more in serving the people,” he added.
Senior Supt. Ramon L. Rafael, La Union police provincial director, said that the PNP’s continuing reform program and its fight against corruption played a big role in getting the trailblazer award. (MCA/MPA/PIA1 La Union with reports from PIO-LUPPO)
