PNP’s “Open University” will advance police officers’ careers.

To further professionalize the organization, the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the University of the Philippines-Open University (UPOU) signed a historic partnership agreement on Monday.

The PNP Open University, an online learning platform enabling law enforcement officers to complete their required and specialized training, will be established under the terms of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed by the two organizations.

Gen. Rodolfo Azurin Jr., head of the PNP, congratulated the UPOU for cooperating with the police force in order to provide a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to further build and develop the competencies and skills of PNP personnel.

“True to our sacred promise of serving and safeguarding the Filipino people and our beloved country, we have delivered more than our objectives, despite the equally tough periods of peace and uncertainty. Malasakit, Kaayusan, Kapayapaan tungo sa Kaunlaran, a framework for peace and security, and the “KASIMBAYANAN Program “comes guarantee that the Philippine National Police will remain steadfast toward the full realization of the government’s aspiration of a safer, peaceful, more progressive, and stronger equitable society, in line with the development goals of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. on food security, energy sufficiency, industrial peace, and sustainable development, he said during the flag-raising ceremonies at their headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City.

Maj. Gen. Arthur Bisnar, the head of the PNP’s directorial staff, conceived of the open university, according to Azurin, when he was still in charge of the Directorate for Human Resource and Doctrine Development (DHRDD).

Police officers can enroll in online courses when off-duty; therefore, doing so won’t interfere with how they carry out their duties, the PNP head noted.

“Ibig sabihin madadagdagan po ang level of competence ng ating kapulisan once they enroll po diyan and at the same time magkakaroon po sila ng ibang pananaw po, perception as far as yung konsepto ng policing na ginagawa nila or natutunan nila dito po sa ibang mga

3 officers are listed as “Outstanding Filipinos” by Metrobank.

At the same event, three PNP members received the prestigious 2022 Metrobank Foundation Search for the Outstanding Filipinos award.

The top three police officers this year are Executive M/Sgt. Rogelio Rodriguez Jr., Investigator of the Anti-Fraud and Commercial Crime Unit, Col. Lambert Suerte, Batallion Commander of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion of the National Capital Region (RMFB-NCR), and Capt. Rosalino Panlaqui, Town Police Chief of Jalajala, Rizal Province.

It is well known that Panlaqui fosters a close bond between the community and the police.

Suerte’s greatest professional achievement was guiding his troops to victory and safety during the 2017 Marawi siege.

Rodriguez played a key role in the capture of a global terrorist and the avertance of a deadly strike.

These honorees have demonstrated exceptional bravery, devotion, and professionalism as public employees in keeping with their duty to serve and safeguard the populace.

Additionally, they represent the organization’s goals of actively playing a vital part in enhancing the beauty of every life in a secure setting.

Azurin added, “We also express our heartfelt congratulations to the Metrobank Foundation Inc. for the more than four decades of providing Filipinos with timely and pertinent social service.”

Three PMC officers win the naval Staff Course.

Meanwhile, the three-month Naval Staff Course at the Naval Education, Training, and Doctrine Command (NETDC), which was officially completed on September 9, saw three Philippine Marine Corps (PMC) commanders place first.

In San Antonio, Zambales, the NETDC is situated at Naval Station Leovigildo Gantioqui.

To prepare company-grade officers for higher command responsibilities and staff roles in the Philippine Navy, the Naval Staff Course is a three-month career course (PN).

The PMC said on Monday that the Assault Armor Battalion’s logistics officer, Capt. Marever Evans V. Taghap PN(M), graduated at the top of her class and won prizes for her position paper, best in staff study, and academic excellence.

Meanwhile, Marine Captains Princess L. Jude and Vanessa P. Factor came in third and fourth, respectively.

Both received honors and prizes for their exceptional work.

The Naval Staff Course was completed and passed by a total of 14 PMC officers.

“Despite my ignorance of your experiences and struggles, I am confident that each and every one of you is a winner, no matter your rank or social class,” “Commodore Alfonso Torres, the deputy commander of the NETDC, said.

Maj. Gen. Charlton Sean M. Gaerlan, the commandant of the PMC, praised the Marine officers for their superior academic performance.
