NOPPO takes
over Sagay PNP

Forty policemen deployed in various Negros Occidental barangays for immersion activities, have taken over the Sagay City Police Station, as 60 of its personnel were required to undergo a week-long retraining program.

This is part of the continuing transformation program of the Philippine National Police.

Policemen assigned in Manapla, in the cities of Silay, Victorias and Bacolod have already completed the required 7-day Police Retraining Program, a joint project of the National Police Commission, Philippine National Police and the Soroptomist International-Negros Occidental chapter.

Chief Inspector Gabriel Gutierrez, Sagay police chief, who is among the participants, said the retraining is aimed at re-orienting them on basic police functions, values and ethics, as well as the new policies in the PNP, to make them more productive law enforcers.

Gutierrez said Sagay City remains peaceful, with no untoward incident having taken place, while they are attending the retraining program, that started April 18 and will end April 26.

Provincial and city police directors in Region 6 have been ordered to ensure the availability of their personnel for the retraining program by the PNP Directorate for Human Resource and Doctrine Development.

Police records show that there are about 2,000 policemen and women assigned at the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office and the Bacolod City Police Office. * GPB
