MANILA -- National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) director Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar on Wednesday stressed that there will be no sacred cows in the unrelenting internal cleansing program of the police force.
Eleazar made the reminder during the oath-taking of the newly-promoted personnel of Quezon City Police District (QCPD) at the QCPD Grandstand, Camp Karingal, Quezon City.
In his message, Eleazar said internal cleansing is not just about punishing scalawags but also restoring the pride and self-respect in the uniform of the police personnel and gaining the trust of the public.
He congratulated the personnel and told them that their promotion is because of their perseverance, dedication, and discipline.
He also thanked the loved ones of the promoted personnel for the support they always bestowed on them.
The NCRPO chief also challenged the newly-promoted personnel to render quality service to the community by making it safe and more secure place to live.
“If you accept this challenge, there is no reason why NCRPO will not emerge victorious against all forms of criminality,” he added.
Brig. Gen. Joselito T. Esquivel Jr., QCPD director, said a total of 2,411 Police Non-Commissioned Officers (PNCOs) of QCPD were promoted. Among them, 1,966 were promoted to Corporal; 349 to Staff Sergeant; 60 to Senior Master Sergeant; 27 to Chief Master Sergeant and nine to Executive Master Sergeant.
Esquivel also congratulated the newly-promoted personnel and further challenged them to maintain their best and even surpass it.
“Promotions are intended to recognize and reward dedication and good performance, and also provide advancement in the police service; while maintaining the high morale of those promoted and inspiring others. They also provide avenues for the fulfillment of individual potential to rise in a police career,” Esquivel said. (PNA)
