“Be always respectful and courteous to civilians. No matter what clothes they wear and how they look while seeking help and assistance from your station. When you are  dealing  with  them especially when they have problems. Do not tell them “ Dia  na pud ka sige balik-balik  og dala  problema.(Nandito ka na naman puro problema dala mo). Be always kind to poor and  helpless people.”

Thus the poignant words of Police Regional Office-9 Deputy Regional  Director for Adminstration Chief Supt. Ramon M. Ochotorena in his talks to policemen during his visit to the following  Police Provincial Offices in Zamboanga Peninsula from September 1 to 4, 2015.

Ochotorena encouraged the policemen to always think good and do good in the Philippine National Police in serving the people.

“Sa police works natin ang gulo ay trabaho. It is a challenge to solve the problem. You must execute your leadership in solving the problem. In performing your duties you have to isolate yourself from criticism and face it. Think crisis as not a problem, but a challenge and you have to exercise good solutions because it is an opportunity.  Do your solution to solve the problem. Do not be emotional in solving problem,” he stressed.

He added: Basta police service and work related do not worry. You must face challenges. You must respect your senior officers. Pag mag ka kaso ang inyong mga tauhan  because of work related problem, huwag silang iwanan at tulungan sila ma-solve ang problema. Take care of yourself. Take care of your family and take good care of the organization”, Ochotorena  said.

Ochotorena also advised policemen not to be contented with their rank. He urged them to continue study if they have spare time most especially in leadership and read more books and  read the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines in relation to police works.

“ You must read the Revised Penal Code so that you can master the procedures in  crime investigation to solve crimes. Do not be contented. You have to work for success,”he emphasized.  — Allen Abastillas
