CAMP OLIVAS – The Police Regional Office 3 joined the PNP in the commemoration of its 121st Police Service Anniversary last August 25 at the Makatao Activity Center in this camp, with PNP chief Gen. Rodolfo Zaurib Jr., as guest of honor and speaker.
Based on the records of the National Historical Commission, Police Service as an institution takes its roots from the Insular Police Force that was created on August 8, 1901.
This year’s 121st Police Anniversary theme, “Matibay na Ugnayan ng Pulisya at Mamamayan, Tungo sa Pagkakaisa, Kapayapaan at Kaunlaran” aptly manifests the PNP and PRO3’s continuing partnership for sustained proficiency and excellence in law enforcement towards a stable peace and order particularly in Region 3.
PRO3 director Brig. Gen. Cesar Pasiwen said the activity was highlighted with the message of Gen. Azurin and the giving of recognition to deserving PNP personnel and best units in the region who have contributed vastly to the uplift of PNP-PRO3.
In his message, Gen. Azurin lauded the men and women of PRO3 for continuously doing their jobs efficiently.
Azurin stressed that all PNP Personnel should reaffirm their commitment to police service and should keep on focusing on doing their work especially now that the police have a daunting task of eradicating illegal drugs.
“Guided by the peace and security framework dubbed “Malasakit, Kaayusan, Kapayapaan, tungo sa Kaunlaran” or simply put “MKK = K”, let us continue to stand in solidarity as we work together for the full realization of the government’s aspiration of a safer, peaceful, more progressive and stronger equitable society. Ang katuparan ng ating misyon ay bunga pa rin ng inyong ipinakitang dedikasyon sa serbisyo, disiplina sa sarili at higit sa lahat malasakit sa kapwa,” the PNP top cop said.
