On Thursday, the Philippine National Police (PNP) declared that as part of its efforts to protect the rule of law in the nation, it continues to implement police reforms.

Gen. Rodolfo Azurin Jr., head of the Philippine National Police, said this as he praised the country’s improved placement in the World Justice Project’s (WJP) Rule of Law Index this year, where it came in at 97th place out of 140 nations, up five spots from previous year’s 102nd place.

“The PNP takes pleasure in its own efforts to change its systems and practices to meet the ever-changing demand for better police service to the people. The rule of law and respect for human rights must be the cornerstones of law enforcement, according to a statement from Azurin.

According to him, the WJP’s observation that the Philippines has improved in terms of “order and security” is a fair assessment and an objective recognition of the efforts made by the national institution to uphold the rule of law in its enforcement, prosecution, judiciary, corrections, and community pillars of the criminal justice system.

Azurin stated, “I sincerely thank all police officers and other stakeholders who have worked hard to accomplish this milestone for our country, and I urge everyone to continuously discharge their sworn duty with passion and commitment.

The Philippines is one of a select few nations that outperformed its previous ranking in the organization’s survey conducted among 154,000 households and 3,600 legal practitioners from February to June 2022, even though 85 out of 140 countries saw a decline in the rule of law index, according to the organization.

Eight criteria—constraints on government power, lack of corruption, open government, protection of fundamental rights, peace and security, regulatory enforcement, civil justice, and criminal justice—are used to measure the rule of law index.

The WJP is an independent, multidisciplinary organization that promotes the rule of law on a global scale by generating knowledge, raising awareness, and inspiring action.
