In recognition of the valiant efforts and services of the men and women of the Philippine National Police (PNP), President Benigno S. Aquino III pledged government support in the form of housing, benefits and modernization programs in order to bring about complete and effective change within the institution.
In his speech keynoting the PNP’s 110th Police Service Anniversary at Camp Crame, Quezon City on Monday, the President said that by supporting the PNP’s quest for change in line with his “Tuwid na Daan” advocacy, the country’s premiere law enforcement institution would rise above its image and return to its former glory as protector of the people.
“Sa lahat ng inyong tapang at katapatan, nais ko pong ipaabot sa inyo na hindi lang po kayo ang nakatutok sa pangangailangan ng bayan. Nasa likod ninyo ang ating gobyerno para suklian ang inyong serbisyo,” the President said.
“Naumpisahan na po nating maipatayo at maipagkaloob ang apat na libo ng kabuuang dalawampu’t isang libo at walong daang pabahay para sa ating mga sundalo at kapulisan. Sasagipin ng programang ito ang marami sa ating mga kawal at pulis na patuloy na ginigipit at pinadadapa ng mahal na upa sa bahay,” he added.
