CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga — Provincial and city police offices in Central Luzon were conferred proficient status recently after fulfilling the requirements of the proficiency stage of the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) Peace and Order Agenda for Transformation and Upholding the Rule of Law (P.A.T.R.O.L.) Plan 2030.
Lt. Gen. Camilo Pancratius Cascolan, chief of the Directorial Staff and chairman of the Technical Working Group of the PNP P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030, presented the awards in a ceremony held at the Police Regional Office 3 parade ground here.
Conferred with the Gold Eagle awards were the Bulacan, Tarlac, Olongapo police offices and the Regional Mobile Force Battalion
The police offices in Aurora, Bataan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Zambales and Angeles City, on the other hand, were conferred with Silver Eagle awards.
Brig. Gen. Joel Napoleon Coronel, PRO-3 regional director, said the proficiency stage is the third component of the Performance Governance System (PGS) before a PNP unit could get a go-signal to institutionalize all its measures and tools for its transformation program.
“Your awards were achieved and made possible by the collaborative efforts of every personnel making this transformation a reality for the PNP PRO3. It serves as an inspiration for each of us and I encourage everyone to keep the flame burning as we work together to surpass the challenges of the last stage which is the institutionalization,” he said.
The PNP PGS is comprised of four stages: initiation, compliance, proficiency, and institutionalization with the end-purpose of addressing organizational dysfunctions and improve the quality of the delivery of police services in the country.
It also aims to strengthen law enforcement capabilities and to enhance the welfare and benefits of PNP personnel.
