Police Director General, Ronald M. Dela Rosa, Chief of the Philippine National Police,  said that this is the best time to join the PNP because of the support given by President, Rodrigo Duterte to the PNP and the Armed Forces.

“This is the best time to become a member of the PNP dahil yung puso ng ating Presidente ay buong buo sa pag suporta sa ating kapulisan at kasundaluhan.  Wala siyang iniisip na iba kundi ang kaayusan ng pulis at kasundaluhan,” Dela Rosa said in an interview.

The chief PNP said that, the salaries of the police will be increased depending on their rank effective January next year.

The president himself has instructed to give all the best equipment to the police and the military.

For  Police Officer 1 (PO1) alone, salaries are expected to be doubled from the present P14,834  to 29,668 by January next year.  The figure does not include allowances.

“Kaya tayo, ayusin natin ang ating pagiging pulis para di tayo kahiya hiya hindi tayo lumalabas na walang utang na loob tangap lang tangap ayaw naman gumawa ng matino mahiya tayo,” Dela Rosa stressed.

Meanwhile, Police Regional Office 9, Information Officer, P/CInsp. Helen Galvez said that the salary increase is highly anticipated by the police force.

“Tan expect kame cay grande moral booster se na personnel especially (for the) PO1.  Sila el frontline,” Galvez said.

She stressed that PO1 personnel are in the frontline doing the patrols and this will be a great help for the family of the policemen.

Because of this, Galvez said that this will be a challenge especially to the PNP Board of Recruitment and promotions as the salary of policemen doubles, stiffer checking of PNP applicants must be done as some lawless element will also try to enter the PNP. (R.G. A A. Go)
