A full-dress parade and review ceremony participated by Regional Headquarters personnel, capped the 29th PNP founding anniversary rites.

Police Regional Office 10 leadership and all the men and women commemorate the day the PNP was organized in 1990, almost three decades of truly serving the Filipino people. After the people’s revolution in 1986, a new constitution was promulgated providing for a police force, which is “national in scope and civilian in character.”

The PNP inaugurates its founding anniversary after the effectivity of R.A. 6975 entitled, “An act establishing the Philippine National Police under a reorganized Department of the Interior and Local Government in January 1991.

To further strengthen the PNP into a highly efficient and competent police force, RA 8551 entitled “PNP Reform and the Reorganization Act of 1998” was enacted. The PNP shall be a community and service-oriented agency responsible for the maintenance of peace and order and public safety.

PCol Ferdinand A Sifuentes, Deputy Regional Director for Administration assisted Ms. Alagar and the personnel of PRO 10 in a solemn wreath-laying ceremony at the monument of 1Lt Vicente G Alagar in honor of fallen brothers-in-arms who died in line of duty, highlighted the event.

Police Regional Office 10 will continue to take the big leap on administration, transformation and operations, for the police organization to be better prepared, more equipped and more confident in addressing the peace and order issues in the region.

Furthermore, PNP PRO 10 extends its gratitude to the continuous support of President Duterte, all stakeholders, and the public who have been supporting the law enforcement campaigns of the PNP. PRO 10 is hopeful that this strong partnership and cooperation will continue to foster in the years to come.###
