462 new police undergo training
by Ofelia C. Empian

NEW BLOOD -- The 462 men and women recruits of the Police Regional Office-Cordillera lunged into physical training witnessed by their family members during reception rites at Camp Bado Dangwa last week. The recruits will undergo Public Safety Basic Recruit Course and Field Training Program for one year before they will take their oath as full-fledged police officers with a rank of PO1. Since last year, countless graduates of any four-year course are joining the police and military services due to pay hike and other benefits.

Four hundred sixty two police recruits in the Cordillera took their oath as temporary Police Officers 1 at Camp Bado Dangwa, La Trinidad, Benguet and will undergo one-year Public Safety Basic Recruit Course (PSBRC) and Field Training Program (FTP) before they will be sworned in as full-fledged police officers.

Police Regional Office-Cordillera  Director, C/Supt. Rolando Nana, led the oath taking of the recruits composed of 350 males and 112 females, who passed the tough screening under the PO1 recruitment program of the Philippine National Police.

Nana said decision to  make them flu-fledged police officers would depend on their performance during the PSBRC and FTP trainings.

In his speech, Nana reminded the recruits are no longer civilians but men and women in uniform, who must to serve and protect the community.

“Your decision should always be in consonance with the will of God and the community and not for your personal interest,” Nana said.

He urged the recruits to be good examples in their community and within the police force despite challenges being faced by the police force.   

“You are expected to have good sense and to think critically and to be honest and upright,” he said.

He added that during their stay in the police force, the rookie cops would also be given an opportunity to sharpen and share their skills and talents.

The recruits immediately underwent physical exercises during the reception where senior police officers trained them with various exercises that signaled their grueling training in the coming months while parents and loved ones watch them from the sidelines.

The new breed of officers who were turned over to the Cordillera Administrative Region Training School was received by Regional Training Director Carter Balunes.

The recruits will undergo the PSBRC for six months, followed by another six months of FTP. After completion of the training, they will be qualified for permanency as PO1.

As PO1, they will receive a basic monthly salary of P29,668 aside from allowances and other non-cash benefits.
