MANILA The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) said it has more than 400 new police recruits who will undergo Field Training Program (FTP) to strengthen the region's police force.
NCRPO director, Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar led the send-off ceremony Thursday for the 456 new cops for Field Training Exercise of Public Safety Basic Recruit Course (PSBRC) Classes 2018-01 NCRPO, 2016-02 Headquarters Support Service, Aviation Security Group (AVSEGROUP) and the Field Training Officer Service Duty.
Eleazar said the police trainees underwent PSBRC training for six months at the Regional Training Center (RTC) and will be turned over to Field Training Officers, who will directly supervise and orient them on the first-hand scenarios and police field duty.
He said this will be their initial exposure to the police community and actual police work.
The NCRPO covers five districtsthe Manila Police District (MPD), Quezon City Police District (QCPD), Northern Police District (NPD), Southern Police District (SPD), and Eastern Police District (EPD).
Eleazar said he is confident that this batch of police recruits will reinforce the members of NCRPO in the campaign against any form of criminality and the Internal Cleansing Program.
Their performance rating within the training will be their requirement to get their permanent status in the National Police.
They were hired to uphold high standards of integrity and take this chance to serve the public better and make the NCRPO proud, Eleazar said.
The NCRPO chief challenged the Field Training Officers and senior police officers to do their part in the improvement of the training system.
"Field Training Officers, I challenge you to improve the system," the Metro Manila top cop said.
Eleazar reiterated his vision of an improved recruitment and training culture in the PNP as he believes that this is one of the entry points of misfits in the organization. (PNA)
