Police force gets BBM’s marching orders

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. is expected to give his marching orders and policy guidance when he attends the 121st public service anniversary of the Philippine National Police (PNP) at Camp Crame on Monday.

Marcos will be the guest of honor and keynote speaker in the event that commemorates the founding of the Philippine Constabulary, the country’s first insular police force on 8 August 1901.

This year’s theme is “Matibay na Ugnayan ng Pulisya at Mamamayan, Tungo sa Pagkakaisa, Kapayapaan, at Kaunlaran.”

It will be the Chief Executive’s first official visit to Camp Crame, home to 226,000 officers, men and women of the PNP.

Marcos will present awards and citations to outstanding PNP units and personnel for their invaluable service and achievements. He will be assisted by Interior and Local Government Secretary Benjamin Abalos Jr., and newly-installed PNP chief Police General Rodolfo Azurin Jr.

“As we celebrate this auspicious day, we also honor and pay tribute to our fallen police officers, our unsung heroes, whose legacy, exceptional dedication to duty, selfless service, and unconditional love and sacrifices for our country and countrymen are forever etched in the colorful history of the PNP,” Azurin said

“We are here to manifest the nation’s enduring gratefulness and carry on the ideals they cherished.”

The PNP chief said the organization is guided by the peace and security framework dubbed as “Malasakit, Kaayusan, Kapayapaan, tungo sa  Kaunlaran” or simply put “MKK = K,” “standing in solidarity with the Filipino people as we work together for the full realization of the government’s development goals on food and energy sufficiency, sustainable development, social justice, and just and lasting peace.”
