Formulation of Plans and Programs, Conduct of Research/Surveys for the
Improvement of Commission’s Administration and Management as well as the
Police System and Structure

During the year, the Commission prepared several plans and implemented various
projects and activities to further enhance its administrative and operational capacity.

With the DBM-approved Napolcom Organizational Performance Indicator Framework


(OPIF) and major thrusts for 2008 as bases, the Commission prepared its Agency
Operations Plan and Budget (AOPB), Agency Performance Measures, and Physical and
Financial Plan for FY 2008. Specifically, the said plans served as the references of all
operating units of Napolcom in the implementation of their respective
programs/projects/activities (P/P/As) during the current year.

In the implementation of its programs/projects, the Commission conducted the


Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) and Revisiting the Napolcom
Administrative Disciplinary System for the PNP: A Capability Enhancement
Seminar-Workshop on June 16-23 at Sierra Madre Country Club, Tanay, Rizal. The MCLE
aimed to update the lawyers with the recent laws and jurisprudence for speedy, fair and
judicious disposition of cases. Resource speakers from UP Law Center were invited to lecture
on topics like Substantive Law, Alternative Dispute Resolutions, Legal Ethics, Legal Writing,
International Law, Special Issues and Jurisprudence in Procurement, Procedural Law, Trial
Skills; and Crime Scene Investigation. Participants were 53 lawyers from the Napolcom
Central and Regional Offices. The Revisiting of the Napolcom Administrative Disciplinary
System for the PNP: A Capability Enhancement Seminar-Workshop was conducted to
enhance the competencies of the Commission’s Regional Directors, RAB Chairperson, Chiefs
of Regional Investigation Units/Technical Services Division, representatives from LAS and
IMIS through workshops and lectures on the latest developments in police discipline as well
as to ensure the effective implementation of the Commission’s police administrative
disciplinary system.

Another major activity conducted during the year was the “Strategic Planning
Conference-Workshop”. Geared towards performing and pursuing well-defined and
meaningful roles and responsibilities, the said activity aimed to: 1) assess the effectiveness
of Commission’s core functions over the PNP; 2) identify problems, issues and concerns
affecting the performance of these functions; 3) prioritize courses of action to be taken to
resolve the identified problems, issues and concerns; and, 4) formulate Action Plan for each
core function. The activity was conducted at the Local Government Academy Training
Center, Los Baños, Laguna on October 19-22 with the top management of the Commission’s
central and regional offices as participants.

Police Researches/Studies

Completed during the year were two (2) research studies entitled “Study on PNP
Uniformed Personnel Behind Bars” and the “2006 Study on the Status of Filipino
Women in Policing”.

The “Study on PNP Uniformed Personnel Behind Bars” provided insights on the
profile of police personnel, in terms of career, jail/prison and case profile, committed in the
various correctional institutions from 1987 to 2007 as indicated in the records of Bureau of
Corrections (BuCor), Bureau of Jail and Management Penology (BJMP) and the Directorate
for Personnel and Records Management (DPRM) of PNP.

Based on records, 586 police personnel committed to various jails and prisons were
mostly police commissioned officers (PCOs) assigned in densely populated regions such as
NCR, Regions 4A and 6. The most common offenses committed were crimes against
persons, i.e. murder, homicide, frustrated murder and rape. Other common offenses were
violation of anti-illegal drugs (R.A. Nos. 9165 and 6425), kidnap for ransom, carnapping,
robbery and frustrated homicide.

Through comparison of subgroups of the detained personnel, data revealed that crimes
against persons were most prevalent among PCOs rendering frontline services in the police
offices and stations. On the other hand, corruption-related offenses were common among
PCOs and personnel assigned at the PNP National Support Units.

Using survey as research method, the “2006 Study on the Status of Filipino
Women in Policing” involved 384 policewomen as respondents assigned at the PNP
National Headquarters (NHQ) and different PNP offices/stations/units nationwide. This study
probed into the status of female PNP members in terms of their career development,
working conditions and level of job satisfaction.

In terms of career development, respondents’ perceptions about their preparedness for


their present assignments, as well as the hindrances towards their pursuit of career
advancement were ascertained. As to working conditions, the study looked into the working
hours and weight of workload of the respondents. Moreover, data about the facilities and
equipment provided in their assigned stations/units were identified. With regards to the
level of job satisfaction, respondents’ opinions were measured in terms of their agreement
rating on statements representing various levels of needs such as physiological needs,
safety needs, social needs, need for self-esteem and need for self-actualization.

The results of the 2000 and 2004 survey and 2005 monitoring activities were also
presented in the paper to provide insights on how the status of female PNP personnel had
changed through the years.

The 2008 to 2010 Napolcom Research Program was approved during the period. Said
program serves as the overall framework for the Commission’s research efforts. It sets the
thrusts and direction of Napolcom’s research initiatives as well as provides for institutional
arrangements and processes for undertaking research projects.

In addition, two (2) project proposals were approved, one for the development of
Police Research Compendium and the other, the NAPOLCOM Statistical System
(NSS).

The development of Police Research Compendium is aimed at making literature


survey of researches in the field of police administration and presenting these researches in
concise form. The conduct of library visits was completed as of end of the year. A total of
430 studies/researches gathered from Philippine Public Safety College (PPSC), National
Defense College of the Philippines (NDCP) and Philippine College of Criminologists (PCCr)
were summarized by the research team. Encoding of these summaries into report summary
template is still ongoing.

On the other hand, the development of the Napolcom Statistical System (NSS)
aims to further improve the Commission’s statistical functions and serve as a mechanism for
generating a more responsive statistical data in support of the accomplishment of its
mandated functions. The Seminar-Workshop on the Identification of Statistical Needs
(Phase I) is scheduled to be conducted during the first quarter of the coming year.

Development and Management of the Crime Prevention Program

An annual National Crime Prevention Program (NCPP) is developed by the


Commission through its Technical Committee on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice
(TCCPCJ), an ad hoc body composed of member representatives from the five (5) Pillars of
the Criminal Justice System (CJS). The NCCP aims to provide guidance and direction to the
government in its fight against criminality through a strengthened and more effective
government and community partnership and shared responsibility. The 2008 NCPP was

Philippines. It is aimed at providing information and data in victimization that will aid in
policy formulation related to improving crime prevention measures, victims’ protection and
police services. The survey instruments were administered by the regional offices. By the
end of the year, 80% of the data gathering activities are completed.

The establishment of a Research Databank on Crime Prevention and Criminal


Justice was started. The project attempts to compile and collate existing local research
studies/theses in relation to crime prevention and criminal justice by the different
government agencies, non-government organizations, and different colleges and universities
in Metro Manila. This databank of information on crime prevention and criminal justice
policies, practices and programs shall provide the much-needed guidance to researchers
and policy-makers on crime prevention and criminal justice. The research team gathered a

Promotion of Organizational Effectiveness

Conduct of Management Audit

The importance of management audit to the effective functioning of the National Police
Commission (NaPolCom) cannot be overemphasized. As an internal control measure,
management audit is a mechanism for self-evaluation and correction. It seeks to examine
and evaluate both the financial and operational performance of the Commission through
comparative review or analysis of policies and practices as well as operational targets and
results. Ultimately, it points to areas of strengths and weaknesses wherein sound
management decision is crucial.

Similar to what was done in 2003, the Commission’s management audit activities for
2008 focused on regional offices’ responsiveness in the performance of administrative and
operational functions as well as the delivery of services to the Philippine National Police
(PNP). Specifically, this year’s management audit has the following objectives:

• To review, examine and evaluate existing systems and procedures in management,


organization,
administrative, finance and operation of all regional offices;
• To verify the extent of compliance with existing policies, rules and laws relative to
administration and operations;
• To enhance existing internal administrative and operational systems and procedures for
the purpose
of attaining effective, efficient and timely delivery of services to the client groups (PNP
and the public); and
• To improve resource capabilities particularly through human resource development,
logistics management
and sound fiscal management.

Quarterly Central and Regional Management Conference

The conduct of quarterly Central and Regional Management Conference is a regular


activity of the Commission that provides opportunity for top officials to discuss, clarify and
resolve organizational problems, issues and concerns affecting its operations and
administration. Further, it also serves as a mechanism in monitoring the implementation of
various programs, projects and activities undertaken by the staff services and regional
offices.

During the period, two (2) Quarterly Central and Regional Management Conferences
were conducted; (1) January 3-4, and (2) April 16-17, 2008.

Study on the Level and Determinants of Job Satisfaction Among Employees of the
National Police Commission

The “Assessment of the Level and Determinants of Job Satisfaction among Employees
of the National Police Commission” was also completed during the period.

Using survey as its research design, this study looked into the overall level of job
satisfaction among Napolcom employees as well as the effect of intrinsic job factors
(advancement, recognition, responsibility, achievement and job characteristics) and job
context related factors (salary, interpersonal relations, working conditions, policies and
operations and supervision) to employee job satisfaction. The overall objective of this study
was to identify measures that would enable Napolcom employees to develop positive
attitude towards their jobs thereby leading to better performance and enhanced
organizational capability of Napolcom.

Findings revealed that the Commission’s personnel are generally satisfied with their
jobs. The employees have positive perception towards intrinsic job factors particularly the
nature of tasks performed, the importance and recognition accorded to them by virtue of
their jobs and the sense of development and accomplishment derived from their jobs. The
employees likewise have favorable attitude towards job context related factors. Among the
key recommendations include the improvement of the Commission’s rewards system and
performance evaluation system, introduction of job enrichment and training program as well
as the conduct of long term human resource planning.

Human Resource Development Program

On human resource development, various conferences/trainings/seminars were


initiated or participated by the Commission’s personnel.

systems were developed or enhanced to further improve the Commission’s delivery of basic
services.

Among the systems implemented during the year were the PNP Disciplinary Machinery
System (PDMIS), Benefit Claims Management Information System (BCMIS), Regional
Payroll System (RPS) and Temporary Room Assignment Lists System (TRALS).
For the PDMIS, the module for the Research and Evaluation Division, Planning and
Research Service (RED, PRS) was already installed. This module will enable the encoding of
all summary dismissal and appealed cases received from the regional offices and Regional
Appellate Boards. Other modules like the Formal Hearing module and the Appeal module are
pending installation due to the renovation of the building.

A presentation of the BCMIS was undertaken during the second quarter of the year. In
attendance were personnel from the Legal Affairs Service (LAS), Financial Service (FS) and
PRS. The system is already installed at LAS, however database build-up is pending due to
the renovation of the building. Deployment to PNP Welfare Benefits Division and Budget
Division of the FS will be undertaken upon completion of the building renovation. The BCMIS
shall maintain a database of all beneficiaries under PDs 448 and 1184 and scholars under
R.A. No. 6963.

Users’ training for the RPS was also conducted at the Central Office on December 8 and
9. In attendance were personnel from Napolcom Regional Office Nos. III, IV-A, IV-B and
National Capital Region (NCR). These regions comprised the pilot areas of the system. Full
implementation of RPS is targeted first quarter of 2009. The RPS will automate the
processing and generation of the monthly payroll of Napolcom Regional Employees as well
as deduction registries, employee’s payslips and remittance lists, among others.

For the TRALS, enhancements on new reports and validations were undertaken based
on comments and suggestions of the users of the system. A copy of the revised system was
furnished to the regional offices for installation. It was utilized for the October 26 PNP
entrance and promotional exam.

For the Capability Enhancement Program for IT personnel, the Commission authorized
the attendance of PRS-EDPSD personnel to the trainings on Certified Networking and Visual
Basic.Net programming courses. Said trainings enhanced the Commission’s IT capability
through exposure to the latest available technology on application development and
networking administration.

the PNP.

Other Concerns

Police Community Relations Month Celebration

It was during the 4th National Summit on Peace and Order in April 1996 when
Presidential Proclamation No. 783 was signed. Said Presidential Proclamation declared the
month of January of every year as Police Community Relations Month (PCRM) with
Napolcom as the lead agency and the PNP as the implementing agency.

The intention was very noble--to promote partnership between the police and the
community in the maintenance of peace and order and to foster and improve
communication and mutual understanding between the police and the community.

From January of every year, the celebration of Police-Community Relations Month was
moved to July through Presidential Proclamation No. 764 to enable the participation of as
many sectors of society, particularly the youth.
As the lead agency in the implementation of the PCRM, the Commission issues
directives and guidelines on the nationwide conduct of various activities that would foster
the attainment of peaceful and orderly communities generated by the synergy of the police
and its clientele.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Serbisyong Maayos, Magalang at Mabilis..
Patuloy na Handog ni Mamang Pulis”.

At the Napolcom Central Office, the kick-off ceremony for the 13th PCRM was held on
July 4, 2008. The kick-off ceremony was held and featured in the PNP’s public affairs
program the TALAKAYAN SA ISYUNG PULIS (TSIP).

The PNP found it momentous to hold the kick-off ceremony in the TSIP considering the
growing viewership of the program which is being aired primetime over NBN Channel 4
every Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The program is a better mode of communication
to inform the public of the significance of the celebration as well as the activities that were
lined-up during the month-long celebration.

Various activities were initiated by the Napolcom and PNP Regional Offices to highlight
the said occasion, to wit:

• Display of PCR Month Streamers


• Opening/Kick-off and Motorcade
• Conduct of Mass
• Public Information using tri-media
• PCR Capacity Enhancement Seminar
• Community-Oriented Policing System (COPS) Awareness Seminar for PNP and PNP force
Multipliers
• School-based Anti-Criminality and Anti-Insurgency Programs
• Joint outreach program with NGOs and other civic groups (medical/Dental outreach,
feeding program, blood-letting activity)
• PNP-Community/Dialogue or Pulong-pulong
• Environmental Protection Activities (Oplan Linis/Tree Planting and related activities)
• Enhancement of Police Information and Continuing Education (PICE) Program
• Recognition of Best PCR Units/Station and personnel and private groups/individuals who
have contributed and supported the PNP
• Sports Festival
• PCR related activities concerning Family, Juvenile, GAD Muslim Affairs, and community
development activities; Disaster Consciousness Seminar; and Statistical Exhibits

Neuro/ Psychiatric Examinations, Physical/Medical and Dental Examination, and Drug Test.

There were also Napolcom Representatives to the following PNP Promotion Boards:

• PCO Promotion Boards

BPTK- Barangay at Pulisya Tungo sa Kapayapaan

The “Barangay at Pulisya Tungo sa Kapayapaan” is a project that capacitates barangay


officials and senior police officials at the city/municipal level for an effective maintenance of
public safety and peace and order, and provides support mechanism in the form of legal
assistance and services to police members who are facing service-connected criminal or
administrative charges before regular courts and other quasi-judicial bodies.

During the year, the Commission spearheaded the conduct of various capability
building activities for the barangay and PNP officials in different areas in the region wherein
lectures and workshops/action planning were undertaken.

55 pending admin cases against 69 cops resolved (February 14, 2011)

The police personnel whose administrative cases were pending for some years will be serving
the penalty meted against them soon, while those who were exonerated from the charges filed
against them can now sleep well.

This, Police Chief Superintendent Cipriano E. Querol, Jr. said after the 55 administrative cases
against 69 police personnel in Western Visayas were resolved on January 31.

Querol said the resolution of these cases resulted to the dismissal from police service of five
cops, demotion - one, suspension - 15, forfeiture of pay - eight, reprimanded – five, and
exonerated/case dismissed - 35.

The fast resolution of cases was in adherence to the directive of Chief, PNP Raul M. Bacalzo
and Interior and Local Government Sec. Jesse M. Robredo’s “zero-case backlog" program.

Bacalzo and Robredo ordered the immediate attention to cases filed against PNP members to
remove the undesirable members of the force and relieve the agony of those who are not guilty
of the charges.

Querol said those police personnel who were meted with penalty will start serving their
penalty as soon as the orders were already issued without prejudice to their filing of motion for
reconsideration.

Those who were dismissed from police service were POII Ernie Arorong of Iloilo City Police
Office for Grave Misconduct; POI Neuton Guinson of Negros Police Provincial Office for
Serious Neglect of Duty; POII Mendoza Belandres and POI Kenjie Beloya of Bacolod City
Police Office for Serious Neglect of Duty; POIII Marcon Brillantes of Iloilo Police Provincial
Office for Grave Misconduct.
