MANILA –The planned recruitment of additional 60,000 policemen within three years by the Department of Interior and Local Government will allow the Philippine National Police to deploy at least one cop in each of the country’s 42,000 barangays.

On Saturday, PNP Director-General Nicanor Bartolome welcomed the medium-term plans by the DILG to muster 60,000 more police personnel to provide better services to the communities.
