PRO11 R-PSB program to be implemented nationwide
The Revitalized-Pulis sa Barangay of Police Regional Office 11 will be implemented nationwide. This is the directive of Sec. Eduardo M Año Secretary of Department of Interior and Local Government after PBGEN FILMORE B ESCOBAL presented the concept before the SILG and other senior officials from PNP and AFP at Camp Crame, Quezon City on November 10 2021.
The SILG recognized the program as “Masterpiece Dish” that is significant in achieving the goal of PRRD in ending local communist armed conflict before his term ends.
He personally thanked PBGEN ESCOBAL for crafting and implementing said program which according to him has a very noble initiative and concept.
He also recommended to integrate R-PSB to other existing programs of the Philippine National Police and further recommends for the PRO 11’s R-PSB to be adopted and practiced nationwide.
He acknowledged PNP’s vital role in the welfare, progress and development of the community besides of its main function which is to safeguard the community and maintain its peace and order.
With the foregoing, PBGEN ESCOBAL is grateful for the recognition that was given to the PRO 11’s flagship program which is gaining success through the active support and participation of the other peacekeeping forces, the respective Local Government Units, the stakeholders and private individuals who are seeing the positive impact of the project after it was launched sometime in January 2020.
Furthermore, PBGEN ESCOBAL believes that the eventual implementation of this project nationwide would hasten the Government’s effort in Ending the Local Communist Armed Conflict following the stoppage in the recruitment activities of the Criminal Terrorist Groups and through the surrender of their members as a result of the PNP’s actual delivery of government services to the people in the Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas.
ESCOBAL is hopeful that like PRO 11 the whole country can as well experience the benefits of the services and development programs provided by R-PSB to people under GIDAS barangays.
In return, the PNP shall gain the trust and confidence of the people as it serves as image building for the organization.
