About 170 police officers, including 24 females, will start their 45-day anti-insurgency training at the Philippine National Police’s Camp Carballo in Barangay Nagbagang, Sta. Catalina town, Negros Oriental, today.
The Special Counter-insurgency Operations Unit Training will be the second for Negros Oriental, and the third for Region 7 for 2012, Senior Insp. Dexter Calacar, manager of the PNP Regional Special Training Unit 7, said.
The PNP SCOUT Class 31-2012 is composed of police officers from the Regional Public Safety Battalion, 13 females and one male from the Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office, and one from Bohol province, Calacar added.
PNP Deputy Regional Director for Administration, Sr. Supt. Samuel Yordan, NOPPO director Sr. Supt. Edward Carranza, and Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo will attend the program.
