National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Police Director Oscar Albayalde administered the oath taking of 358 police recruits at Camp Bagong Diwa, Bicutan, Taguig City.
Although on a temporary status, these police recruits are now part of the PNP, particularly of the NCRPO, and will start to get the same benefits as regular Police Officer 1.
Their temporary status would only be lifted to permanent status after they pass the rigid disciplinary training – NCRPO orientation program, training at the Special Action Force (SAF) and field training on patrol, investigation and traffic.
Albayalde is confident that these police recruits were strictly screened by the Regional Recruitment and Selection Board as the NCRPO strengthened its recruitment and selection policy.
Albayalde said the NCRPO is reminded of the lapses that mostly young policemen got involved into. Hence, Albayalde hopes that this batch of recruits would be more disciplined.
He reminded them to be faithful to their oath and to be determined with the dreams to becoming policemen.
“Umaasa ako na sa inyong “batch” ngayon, ay walang maliligaw ng landas, at walang gagawa o magtangkang gumawa ng kalokohan. Isipin na lang ninyo ang hirap na pinagdaanan ninyo para makapasok bilang pulis, kung gaano kasaya at kung kagaano kayo ipinagmamalaki ng inyong mga magulang, kapatid, asawa, anak at mga kaibigan dahil ganap na kayong pulis, at higit sa lahat isipin na lang ninyo ang mga benepisyo na meron ang pulis (I am hoping that in your batch no one will be misguided and will do any foolishness. Just think of the hardships you went through before entering the police serviice, how happy and how proud your parents, siblings, husband/wife, children and friends are because you are already policemen. And most importantly think of the benefits a policeman has),” Albayalde said.
“I want you to value your uniform with high regard. Begin your work on good ethics. This empowers you to enforce law fairly and just. Do not take public service for granted. Rather, take it as an opportunity to inspire others, to defend the innocent, to help achieve the positive changes that the people have been praying for,” he added.
