NAPOLCOM BRIEFING February 5, 2007

GREETINGS! The sequence of presentation is as follows: I. II. PNP Historical Highlights & Its Vision, Mission and Functions PNP Program Thrusts for CY 2006 & 2007

HISTORICAL HIGHLIGHTS The Philippine National Police traces its beginning on August 8, 1901 when the Philippine Constabulary or the PC was inaugurated as an insular police force under the American regime. Since then, the PC had undergone changes which enabled it to confront the challenges of the times. On August 8, 1975, Presidential Decree No. 765 was issued establishing the Philippine Constabulary/Integrated National Police or the PC/INP as the countrys national police force. The once fragmented and diverse local police units were integrated into a national police force with the Philippine Constabulary as its nucleus. After the Peoples Revolution of 1986, a new Constitution was promulgated providing for a police force, which is national in scope and civilian in character. Consequently, Republic Act No. 6975 entitled: An Act Establishing the Philippine National Police under a Reorganized Department of the Interior and Local Government, and for Other Purposes was signed into law on December 13, 1990 which became effective on January 1, 1991. Subsequently, the PNP was activated on January 29, 1991 initially composed of the members of the former Philippine Constabulary (PC) and Integrated National Police (INP) who opted to join the PNP. Selected members from the different major services of the Armed Forces of the Philippines such as the Philippine Air Force Security Command, the Philippine Coast Guard and the Philippine Army were also absorbed. On February 17, 1998, Republic Act No. 8551 entitled The PNP Reform and Reorganization Act of 1998 was enacted to amend certain provisions of Republic Act No. 6975. Under this Act, the PNP shall be strengthened and shall evolve into a highly efficient and competent police force, that is community-service oriented and fully accountable organization in the performance of its functions.
