Section 1 PNP Anti-Corruption Plan Considering the magnitude and complexity of corruption problem, a holistic approach to eliminate this menace is a must. For its part, the PNP hierarchy has been exhausting all efforts to solve the problem of corruption that pave the way for the formulation of the PNP Anti Corruption Plan annex A. The PNP AntiCorruption Plan, formulated through a collective effort of the various offices, units, and stations of the PNP during the PNP Anti-Corruption Workshop in Tagaytay City on January 19 - 20, 2005, was presented to Her Excellency President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo during the 14th PNP Anniversary celebration on January 31, 2005, and copies were subsequently distributed to all PNP units. Contained in the plan are the PNP identified corrupt practices and the corresponding countermeasures to address these corrupt practices. The birth of the PNP Anti Corruption Plan is a milestone in the history of the Organization being the first of its kind that offers a comprehensive strategy to end the seemingly perpetual corruption problem in the PNP. However, the Plan per se constitutes only a marginal fraction to the solution. How to implement it makes up the remaining fraction, a colossal one where the challenge really lies because normally in any organization, reforms are greeted with indifference or dissent from some of the members who are apprehensive their personal interest will be affected/impaired by the program. To succeed therefore, the cooperation and commitment of every PNP personnel is necessary, setting aside personal motives in lieu of the objectives of the Plan. For without such cooperation and commitment, the Anti Corruption Plan, although excellent in paper, cannot go the distance. Sometimes the reason why people commit corruption is because of several flaws of the Organizational system. Because of these flaws, even good people are tempted to manipulate things for personal gains knowing the probability of being caught is very remote. To minimize if not eliminate corruption therefore, all flaws of the system must be fixed. And this is exactly the PNP has been doing as another approach to curb corruption within the Organization. Since the implementation of the PNP Anti-Corruption Plan, efforts are exerted to plug all identified loopholes in the work processes in the Organization. Most notable is the promotion of transparency in all kinds of transaction in the PNP like: recruitment, placement, and promotion of personnel; procurement of supplies through bidding; and the like. The foregoing implies corruption is committed because of two (2) reasons: human desire and system error. To address corruption therefore, these two(2) factors must be eliminated and this is what the PNP Anti-Corruption Plan has been trying to do. Since the launching of the program, the PNP has already achieved significant gains, both on the human and system factors, based on the latest report from the different PNP Offices/Units. But much remains to be done as public expectation is so enormous that the PNP cannot afford to rest lest it cannot catch up with time. Fortunately for now, as the way events are unfolding, the implementation of the PNP anti-corruption innovations are still at the right track. For how long the PNP could stay abreast with the time as against public expectation is the matter only the PNP members could decide.

Section 1a - Task Force Anti-Kotong To enhance the implementation of the PNP Anti-Corruption Plan, LOI 05/05 Task Force Anti-Kotong annex B was issued on January 18, 2005 to check PNP personnel engaged in extortion activities including those locally referred as kotong, hulidap, and other forms of illegal activities. The implementation of this LOI carries with it the application of the Doctrine of Command Responsibility that makes commanders accountable for what his office does or fails to do. In the workplace, PNP commanders must be wary of bribery or lagay especially in the conduct of investigation that allows suspects to get off the hook or initiating trumped-up charges to compel the respondent to shell out money or by materials of value. This includes deliberate delay or refusal to serve arrest warrants for monetary consideration. In the street or outside the workplace, the most common is lagay committed along checkpoints victimizing viajeros either to facilitate passage or to spare their truck from getting inspected. Similar illegal act happens during traffic enforcement: cash for non-issuance of citation ticket, and the like. The worse is hulidap where law enforcers arrest an innocent target, plant incriminating evidence, and forced to buy his liberty or face the humiliation of getting hauled to the police station, booked, and jailed. They also prey on PNP personnel who seek reassignment or promotion. These forms of Kotong activities by some PNP personnel totally crumble the credibility of the PNP organization if not quickly and seriously addressed. The support of the NGOs and the community in general is vital in achieving the end goal of LOI Anti - Kotong as the complaints and information can be obtained through coordination and consultation with them. Media involvement is also necessary in promoting this LOI and in encouraging the public to relay information relative to kotong activities to the authorities.

Section 1b - Honesty Teams The litany of corruption charges, brought about by the unauthorized activities of the bad eggs in the PNP, who actually comprise a miniscule segment of the force is plodding the PNPs overall effort towards the attainment of its mission and vision. So to salvage the Organization from further denigration, the C,PNP has committed himself to strictly institute internal reforms in the PNP which includes the weeding out of erring personnel engaged in corruption activities. One strategy to eliminate corruption is to make it low reward and high risk activity. Although the PNP leadership could hardly control the reward corruption can yield, at least it can make corruption a high risk one. In this context, the C, PNP has declared to crack the whip on all erring personnel who will not toe the line in the command policy of internal reform, and offered no mercy to police personnel involved in criminal activity and irregularities. To ensure that this national police flagship program will be realized, the C,PNP has activated the HONESTY TEAMS in the Regional, Provincial, and City levels that will conduct the operations against erring PNP personnel engaged in extortion or kotong, hulidap, mulcting, bribery, and other forms of illegal activities pursuant to the Letter of Instruction (LOI) 44/06 HONESTY TEAMS issued on August 28, 2006. The HONESTY TEAMS headed by the Deputy Regional Directors for Operations in the 17 PROs shall absorb all duties and functions of the TF Anti-Kotong. The HONESTY TEAMS are tasked to closely monitor the activities and behavior of police personnel that are assigned to highly-visible posts such as in . traffic law enforcement, checkpoints, patrol operations, and regulatory offices that issue clearances and licenses to the public. The HONESTY TEAMS shall likewise insure that viajeros or merchants transporting market goods, essential commodities, and commercial products will not fall victims to kotong which usually add-up to the cost of products in the market. Parallel with the conduct of operations against PNP personnel involved in illicit activities, an active and consistent education and information dissemination campaign shall be initiated in all PROs, prioritizing those police units/offices and areas of deployment that have been identified to be vulnerable to commission of misdemeanors, with particular focus on already known target personalities. The education campaign shall concentrate in inculcating the core values of the PNP organization in order to avoid the occurrence or commission of illegal acts. Values Formation seminar shall also be conducted to strengthen the personnels moral suasion for the service over money or things. This is one of the solutions to control the seemingly growing number of personnel who are becoming money oriented at the expense of the police service. Worse, some are even shunning or refusing an assignment if it does not fit to their unpopular inclination. Nevertheless, the Values Formation Program shall aim to motivate personnel to effectively perform for the sake of public service sans the monetary considerations in mind. 4

Since the implementation of the LOI Honesty Teams, a total of thirty five (35) PNP personnel were criminally and administratively charged for corruption offenses: 5 PCOs, and 30 PNCOS The PNP TEXT 2920, PNP hotline 722-0650 (Complaints and Referral Action Center), walk-in complaints, counter intelligence activities, and dialogue with concerned sectors, i.e., transport, traders, etc. shall serve as feedback mechanisms to reinforce the efforts of the PNP in attuning anti-corruption strategies. Section 2 Applicable Laws on Corruption

To guide the units during the conduct of investigation on corruption charges, the following are the related laws that can be applied:
Sec. 27, Art II, R.A. No. 9165 Criminal Liability of a Public Officer or Employee for Misappropriation, Misapplication or Failure to Account for the Confiscated, Seized and/or Surrendered Dangerous Drugs, Plant Sources of Dangerous Drugs, Controlled Precursors and Essential Chemicals, Instruments/Paraphernalia and/or Laboratory Equipment Including the Proceeds or Properties Obtained from the Unlawful Act Committed Sec. 28, Art II, R.A.

Section 1 - Integrity Development Action Plan The PNP is participating in the Integrity Development Action Plan (IDAP) initiated by Presidential Anti Graft Commission (PAGC) with the assistance of the US Agency for International Development (USAID). This project is a tool that will aid the concerned government agencies in assessing and monitoring the progress of two (2) of the Project Plans Code of Conduct Project and Agency Corrupt Practice Counter Measures Plan. One of the projects under the IDAP, is the implementation of the following 22 doables identified by PAGC in four (4) areas, namely: Prevention, Education, Deterrence, and Partnership: Prevention IDAP MEASURE 1 2 3 Strengthen internal control through institutionalization of Internal Audit Unit Conduct of Integrity Development Review Fast track e-NGAS and e-bidding for the procurement of goods and services

All participating agencies in the IDAP are regularly submitting monthly progress report to evaluate the ratings of the agencies concerned on the implementation of policies and guidelines on anti-corruption campaign in accordance to IDAP measures. As a result, the PAGC has awarded the PNP a certificate of recognition for ranking 9th place among 70 agencies in terms of compliance to the requirements of the IDAP for the 1st Semester of 2006.

On July 20, 2006, the PNP participated in the workshop convened by PAGC in Diliman, Quezon City. The objective of the workshop is to formulate anti-corruption projects that can be implemented within two (2) years. In the said workshop, the PNP came up with two (2) proposals submitted to PAGC for funding: The PNP Text Anti-Kotong Project of the Directorate for Operations and the PNP Procurement Monitoring Information System (PPMIS) of the Directorate for Logistics. PNP Text Anti-Kotong Project The PNP Text Anti-Kotong Project aims to reverse the downtrend public perception towards the PNP. This can be achieved through the collaboration of NGOs, Media, LGUs, Business Sectors, and other Government Agencies. The basic concept of the project is to elicit public support to rally behind the PNP in the fight against corruption or kotong. A special cellphone number is designated to receive feedback from the public. This can be realized through the development of a dedicated information system for PNP Text Anti-Kotong. The PNP Text Anti-Kotong special number will be manned 24/7 to process text messages in real time. Operating teams who will conduct case-build-up and entrapment operations are organized in every Police Regional Offices and NCR District Offices. These operating teams are on stand by 24/7 for prompt response to kotong complaints. Cases filed against arrested suspects shall be properly monitored until final verdicts are reached. All text messages received shall be stored in a data base with the corresponding results of action taken. Text senders will be informed as to the results accordingly. To spice up the project, an advocacy plan shall be developed to enhance public awareness of the PNP Text Anti-Kotong Project. The advocacy plan shall include, but not limited to, barangay/school tours, TV and radio programs, symposia/meetings, billboards, posters, and stickers.

Objectives of PNP Text Anti-Kotong Project :

1. To improve publics perception on the PNP and enhance publics confidence in its systems, e.g. 5 percentage point improvement in the net approval rating of PNP after two (2) years;
2. To enhance public awareness and increase public reporting on corruption activities perpetrated by government officials/employees, and accordingly become a high-risk activity; and 3. To enhance public cooperation and stakeholder partnerships. The Project has four (4) Components: 1. Development of an Advocacy Program for the PNP Text AntiKotong; 2. Development of a dedicated Information System for the PNP Text Anti-Kotong. 3. Capability building for PNP Personnel who will handle complaints. 4. Partnership with the other Pillars of the Criminal Justice System and Other Stakeholders.

PNP Procurement Monitoring Information System (PPMIS)


The governments fight against graft and corruption is a continuing mandate in the entire agencies of the country. It is indeed imperative to note that the Philippine National Police (PNP) is one vast agency with major concerns and issues to be addressed in combating such problem. Thus, it is indeed a great opportunity to be chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the 1 Billion fund project of H.E. President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo for anticorruption. The most apt innovation is to utilize the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) such as the World Wide Web (WWW) and the development of an information system that would centrally monitor and manage the activities that purportedly being one of the root causes of corruptions in the PNP. By and large, one of the most vulnerable activities is the procurement and acquisition of equipment, materials and/or supplies for the PNP Units/Offices. With this project, adherence to the existing Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act 9184 (IRR RA 9184) or otherwise known as The Government Procurement Reform Act will strictly be implemented in the organization. Moreover, an information system will be developed to be called as the Procurement Management Information System (PPMIS). The PPMIS would be able to monitor and manage centrally the entire procurement activities from the PNP National Headquarters down to its Regional Units/Offices. The proposed project intends to improve public perception of the PNP through the installation of a responsive public feedback system and the promotion of integrity and transparency in the procurement process. This project hopes to strengthen the PNPs internal systems and address the findings of the recently concluded Integrity Development Review (IDR) and accordingly reinforce the PNPs Anti-Corruption Plan. This project is focused on one component which concerns in the development of the PNP Procurement Management Information System that would automate the procurement process, seamlessly integrate planning, procurement, and monitoring processes.

Section 2 - Integrity Development Review (IDR) A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) annex D - between Ombudsman (OMB), Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Department of Education (DepED), Civil Service Commission (CSC), Commission on Audit (COA), Presidential Anti-Graft Commission (PAGC), Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), Department of Public Works and Highway (DPWH), Philippine National Police (PNP), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Bureau of Customs (BOC), and Land Transportation Office (LTO) was formulated on October 7, 2005. The parties are mandated under the said MOU to develop a resultsoriented transparency and accountability improvement agenda for addressing areas of the respective operations with critical or high corruption vulnerabilities in accordance to the policy agenda of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Among the projects stipulated in the MOU is the conduct of Integrity Development Review (IDR). The IDR is a project of the Office of the Ombudsman in collaboration with Presidential Anti-Graft Commission, Department of Budget and Management, Civil Service Commission, Commission on Audit, Department of Education, and the Development Academy of the Philippines. The IDR is a preventive measure against corruption. It entails a systematic assessment of the agencys corruption resistance mechanisms and its vulnerabilities to corruption, aiming to build institutional foundations to thwart corruption before it occurs. The objective of IDR is to assist the management and leadership of the agency to: a) Assess the level of integrity development with the agency, b) Identify the agencys vulnerability to corruption, c) Assess the adequacy of agencys controls to detect and prevent corruption, d) Prepare a more focused Corruption Prevention and Integrity Development Plan, and e) Establish benchmarks by which performance and results of anti-corruption programs can be monitored. The IDR has two (2) major tools: Corruption Resistance Review (CRR), the first stage of the IDR, is a guided self-assessment that provides set standard levels that each agency can assess itself regarding its efforts to develop integrity in the workplace. It helps the agency to identify the necessary steps in achieving a certain level of systems integrity, and it provides a basis for the examination of agency operations against measures that prevents any opportunity for corruption, and Corruption Vulnerability Assessment (CVA), the second phase of the IDR, is a detailed examination of the high-risk activities and/or functions and the general control environment of the agency, including the adequacy of existing safeguards.

13

Among the activities in the IDR was the assessment of the agencies anticorruption innovations especially on the following areas: 1) Leadership, 2) Code of Conduct, 3) Gifts and Benefits, 4) Recruitment and Promotion, 5) Performance Management, 6) Procurement, 7) Financial Management, 8) Internal Reporting, 9) Corruption Risk Management, and 10) Managing Interface with Stakeholders. On the result of the IDR, the PNP fared well on the six (6) areas namely: Leadership, Code of Conduct, Recruitment and Promotion, Performance Management, Financial Management, and Managing Interface with Stakeholders. However, the PNP obtained a poor rating on the four (4) dimensions, namely: 1) gifts and benefits policy; 2) procurement management; 3) whistle blowing, internal reporting and investigation; and 4) corruption risk management. The PNP, through the Program Monitoring Committee Technical Working Group (PMC-TWG) of the PNP Anti-Corruption Programs convened a meeting on September 19, 2006 to address the noted deficiencies. The TWG has so far undertaken the following: a. Formulation of the Rules on Gifts and Benefits annex E - to promote positive values and attitudes within the rank and file, and enhance public trust in the organization. b. On procurement management, the PNP has sent five (5) senior PNP Officers to attend the AFP Logistics Officer Intermediate Course Class 05-2006 conducted by the Air Force Officers School at Villamor Air Base, Pasay City on October 8 14, 2006 to enhance their knowledge and skills on procurement management. Another initiative of the PNP is the holding of the Annual Logistics Planning Session. The purpose of which is to formulate the Annual Procurement Program, and the Project Procurement Management Plan c. To address the deficiency on corruption risk management, the PNP has formulated LOI 44/06 Honesty Teams on August 28, 2006 purposely to enhance the anti-corruption campaign of the PNP through a comprehensive program to weed out erring PNP personnel engaged in extortion activities. To have a better understanding of IDR, below is the overview presented by the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) and Office of the Ombudsman during the meeting on December 19, 2006 at DAP, Ortigas Center, Pasig City:
Public office is a public trust. Public officers and employees must at all times be accountable to the people and serve them with utmost responsibility and integrity. The impairment of integrity, which includes wrongdoings that clearly violate legally established and ethically acceptable practices, is tantamount to corruption. In the public sector, corruption is defined as the abuse of public office for private gain. Corruption in government usually comes in the form of illegal payments to a public official in order to obtain a benefit that may or may not be deserved in the absence of payoffs (Rose-Ackerman, 1999).

14

Corruption is an economic crime of calculation, that is, if the probability of being caught is very low and the penalty if caught is mild while the pay-off is large, the temptation for corruption will be very high. The potentials of a corrupt benefit increases as a function of monopoly power, amount of discretion and the degree of accountability (Klitgaard, 1998). Accordingly, if someone has monopoly power over a good or service, has the discretion to decide whether who gets that good or service or how much they get, and there is no accountability whereby others can see what that person is deciding, corruption is likely to happen. Government generally holds monopoly power in the provision of public goods. Like private monopolists, they can control the supply of these services. In practice, government officials possess the discretion to determine the quantity of services to be provided especially when they are the only people with authority to issue a permit, overlook a violation of the law or grant a benefit (UNDP, 1997). They can limit the supply even if a service is available to all who qualify through costly queues or by delaying approvals or withholding services unless bribes are paid. Or they can increase supply of the service beyond the officially sanctioned level and make the service available to applicants with the highest willingness to pay. Even under an honest system, discretion remains high when rules are vague and constantly changing. Ambiguous rules can be modified to create additional opportunities for corruption. Agents with discretionary powers are highly susceptible to private individuals and firms, who are willing to pay extra in order to obtain a benefit or avoid cost. Conceptually, the agency can constrict internal systems to reduce the likelihood of corruption, e.g. tightening its recruitment process, raise personal costs of illicit behavior, reduce the agents monopoly powers, clarify and circumscribe the agents discretion, and exact accountability. The agency can also collect information and intensify monitoring in order to raise the probabilities of wrongdoings being detected. The processes can be redesigned or modified to avoid risks e.g. minimizing direct interface between agents and clients. Broad discretion, weak sanctions for corrupt behavior, cumbersome procedures, lack of service standards, poorly disseminated rules, weak checks and balances all create opportunities for corruption. Assessing an agencys vulnerability to corruption requires an analysis of its supervision and control systems, policies and procedures, penalty systems, and high-risk transactions. The assessment also checks whether safeguards that can forestall wrongdoing are in place. The World Bank proposes a four-point framework in reducing an agencys vulnerability to corruption: 1) limiting opportunities for corrupt transactions, 2) decreasing gross gains from corruption, 3) increasing the probability of detection and paying penalties, and 4) increasing the magnitude of penalties. Successful programs to prevention and control corruption normally involve thorough diagnosis of corruption vulnerabilities. Assessing an agencys vulnerability to corruption requires a closer look into high-risk transactions, policies and procedures, supervision and control systems, penalty and reward systems. The assessment should also include a review of integrity development measures and safeguards that can forestall wrongdoings and prevent corruption. INTEGRITY DEVELOPMENT REVIEW Integrity Development Review (IDR) is a preventive measure against corruption. It aims to build institutional foundations to prevent corruption before it occurs. It entails a systematic diagnosis of the corruption resistance mechanisms in place in an agency and its vulnerabilities to corruption.

15

The IDR builds on the Corruption Resistance Review (CRR) approach developed by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) of New South Wales and the Corruption Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) tool developed by the Development Academy of the Philippines. The CRR helps agencies assess their level of corruption resistance and progressively develop and implement corruption prevention measures to meet certain standards at every level for organizational integrity. Patterned after the vulnerability assessment guidelines of the US Office of Budget and Management, the CVA determines the susceptibility of agency systems to corruption and adequacy of safeguards to forestall wrongdoings. Corruption Resistance Review The Integrity Development Assessment (IDA) is a guided self-assessment that provides set standards or levels that each agency can assess itself as regards its efforts to develop integrity in the workplace. It provides a basis for the examination of agency operations and helps the agency identify the necessary steps in achieving a certain level of systems integrity. The agencies as assessed in ten (10) dimensions, which include (1) Leadership, (2) Code of Conduct, (3) Gifts and Benefits, (4) Human Resource Management (5) Performance Management, (6) Procurement Management, (7) Whistleblowing, Internal Reporting and Investigation, (8) Corruption Risk Management, (9) Financial Management and (10) Interface with External Environment. For each dimension, agencies can assess their levels of achievement vis--vis a five-point scale. The assessment yields possible steps agencies can undertake to advance to the next level. After the IDA, Assessment Teams conducts the Survey of Employees. The survey is a means to acquire an objective assessment and systematic approach to monitor and benchmark agency efforts in corruption prevention as perceived by the employees. It hopes to detect the operationalization and deployment of integrity building measures in the agency and generate feedback from employees on experiences with these measures, clarity of agency guidelines and procedures and their effectiveness in preventing corruption. The survey involves one hundred (100) randomly selected employees per agency site and employs the sealed envelope technique. Corruption Vulnerability Assessment

The second phase of the IDR is the Corruption Vulnerability Assessment (CVA), a detailed examination of the high-risk activities and/or functions and the general control environment of the agency, including the adequacy of existing safeguards.
Based on the vulnerabilities identified by the agency or surfaced from the CRR, a detailed investigation and risk assessment of selected functions, processes, procedures, activities, and controls is carried out. The assessment involves process mapping, identification and classification of risks, checking of existing controls, and evaluation of safeguards. Data and information may be culled from document review, key informant interview, and process observation, to the extent possible.

16

PURSUING REFORMS THROUGH INTEGRITY DEVELOPMENT (PRIDE) In its effort to improve governance in the public sector, the leadership of the Department of Budget and Management and the Office of the Ombudsman initiated the Integrity Development Review also known as Pursuing Reforms through Integrity Development (PRIDE) in 2003, which was implemented by the Development Academy of the Philippines. With the support of the World Bank, the CVA was pilot-tested in the Department of Budget and Management in 2002. The IDR was initially implemented at the OMB and the Department of Education in 2004 with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Under the European Commission (EC)-OMB Corruption Prevention Project, 16 public sector agencies are scheduled to undergo the IDR in two cycles. The 1st Cycle was completed on August 2006 while the next cycle commenced on December 2006. These agencies include the Department of Public Works and Highways, Philippine National Police, Bureau of Internal Revenue, Bureau of Customs and the Land Transportation Office (1st Cycle). The 2nd Cycle include the Department of Agrarian Reform, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Health, Armed Forces of the Philippines, Land Registration Authority, Philippine Veterans Affairs Office, Bureau of Corrections, Bureau of Fire Protection, National Irrigation Authority, Light Rail Transit Authority and the Procurement Service.

17

Section 3 Project Task Force, OMB The PNP is also participatIng in the anti-corruption activities of the Project Task Force (PTF) under the Office of the Ombudsman headed by the PTF Manager Ador G. Paulino. The PTF was established to reinforce the ECOMB Corruption Prevention Project.. The following are the anti-corruption activities of the PTF that shall complement the anti-corruption efforts of the concerned government agencies: a. Conduct of Values Formation EHEM! AHA Seminar for Organic Personnel of the participating government agencies, specifically those members of Bids and Awards Committee (BAC), BAC Secretariat, Technical Working Group and Inspection Committee; b. Conduct of a two-day live-in Customer Service Training to develop and enhance of Agency-Based Hotline/Help Desk System; c. Conduct of Anti-Corruption Seminar for Middle Managers; d. Conduct of Procurement Training for Trainers, Observers, and Monitors to strengthen the integrity structures of the participating government agencies to the project by developing procurement training manuals, and the actual training of procurement trainers, observers, and monitors; and e. Displays of Tarpaulins in a conspicuous places that contain organizational systems/work flows, mission, vision, and anti-corruption slogans.

18

As of this writing, the PNP has sent three (3) PNP members from the Office of PCRG to undergo a two-day live-in Customer Service Training to enhance their skills in manning the PNP hotline. Likewise, the PNP has been provided 148 pieces of tarpaulins which are already distributed to PROs containing PNP vision, mission, hotlines, and anti-corruption slogans, to wit:
PNP MISSION: The PNP shall enforce the law, prevent and control crimes, maintain peace and order, and ensure public safety and internal security with the active support of the community

PNP VISION:

Moreover, some of the PNP organizational systems/work flows were submitted to the Office of the Ombudsman for printing in the tarpaulins. These tarpaulins will also be displayed in conspicuous places for public dissemination. The objective of this effort is to educate the people regarding PNP systems/workflows so that the clients will be protected from middleman or fixers when accessing PNP services. Besides, clients knowledge about PNP systems/workflows will also facilitate transaction. The following are the systems/work flows: GENERAL QUALIFICATIONS FOR APPOINTMENT POLICE OFFICER 1 (PO1) 1. 2. 3. a. A citizen of the Philippines; b. A person of good moral character; c.

Section 3 - International Commitment on Anti-Corruption


United Nation Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) - Source: UNCAC Primer

The UNCAC is an international treaty on combating private and public corruption. In its resolution No. 55/61 dated December 4, 2000, the General Assembly recognized that an effective international legal instrument against corruption, independent of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime was desirable and decided to establish an Ad Hoc Committee for the negotiation of such an instrument in Vienna at the headquarters of the Centre for International Crime Prevention, Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention. The text of the UNCAC was negotiated during seven sessions of the Ad Hoc Committee for the Negotiation of the Convention against Corruption, held between 21 January 2002 and 01 October 2003. The Convention approved by the Ad Hoc Committee was adopted by the General Assembly by resolution 58/4 of 31 October 2003. The General Assembly, in its resolution 57/169 of 18 December 2002, accepted the offer of the Government of Mexico to host a high-level political signing conference in Merida for the purpose of signing the UNCAC. The Assembly invited all States to be represented at the Conference at the highest possible levels of Government.

On the implementation mechanisms, the Convention needs 30 ratifications to come into force. A Conference of the States Parties is established to review implementation and facilitate activities required by the Convention.
According to the Transparency International 2006 Corruption Perception Index, the Philippines was one of the Low-Ranking 46 Countries with regard to their commitment to the U.N. Convention Against Corruption. In view of this, the President of the Philippines and different members of the Senate and OMB, SEPO participated in several processes in the ratification of the UNCAC on the following dates/schedules: December 9, 2003 The Philippines was one of the signatories of the UNCAC.

37

March 1, 2005 President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo transmitted the Convention for appropriate action to Senate. June 2, 2005 Senate Committee on Foreign Relations conducted public hearing of UNCAC. August 28, 2006 Transparency and Accountability Network (TAN) and the Office of the Ombudsman held a dinner dialogue with Senators Pimentel and Drilon on UNCAC; with special participation of Mr. Dimitri Vlassis from U.N. Office of Drugs and Crime. August 29, 2006 TAN in partnership with OMB, SEPO conducted public forum on UNCAC at Senate; with Mr. Vlassis as Resource Person. August 30-Sept. 1, 2006 Two-day seminar on UNCAC developing local advocates/experts. September-October 2006 TAN did the rounds with key Senators emphasizing the need for the Philippine Senate to ratify the Convention before November 10. November 6, 2006 Senators Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Edgardo Angara sponsored the Convention in the Senate plenary; UNCAC passed three readings and obtained 17 approval votes. November 8, 2006 Philippine instrument of ratification submitted and received by the United Nations. December 10, 2006 UNCAC 1st Conference of State Parties in Amman, Jordan.

Republic of the Philippines Department of the Interior and Local Government NATIONAL POLICE COMMISSION HEADQUARTERS PHILIPPINE NATIONAL POLICE OFFICE OF THE CHIEF, PNP Camp Crame, Quezon City SUBJECT TO : : Letter of Instruction 62/05 (TASK FORCE ANTIKOTONG) Updated See Distribution

REFERENCES: a. SILGs four Priority Actions for the PNP particularly on the operation versus kotong cops. b. PNP Anti-Corruption Plan c. PNP Transformation Plan PURPOSE:

This LOI provides the operational guidelines on the intensified campaign against PNP personnel who are engaged in extortion activities such as kotong, hulidap, and other related illegal activities.
SITUATION: Previous surveys ranked the PNP as one of the most corrupt Police organizations in Asia. This prompted the NHQ PNP to formulate the PNP Anti-Corruption Plan purposely to reform the PNP. As part of the implementation of the PNP Anti-Corruption Plan, LOI 05/05 that created Task Force Anti-Kotong was issued that resulted in the arrest of five (5) PCOs and eighteen (18) PNCOs for involvement in extortion activities for the period January to August 2005. Despite the intensified effort to address corruption in the PNP particularly extortion or kotong in the street and in the workplace, a considerable number of reports from the public is still received complaining of kotong activities of some policemen. Unless these illegal activities are effectively addressed, the PNP will continue to suffer from negative public perception. There is a need, therefore, to intensify further the campaign against these illegal activities through an updated LOI on Task Force Anti-Kotong. MISSION: The PNP thru Task Force Anti - Kotong, shall conduct intensive operations against PNP personnel who are engaged in extortion activities including those locally referred to as kotong, hulidap, and other forms of related illegal activities.

91

V.

EXECUTION: Concept of Operation

The PNP Hqs shall strengthen the organization of Task Force Anti - Kotong to effectively act on all reports, information, and complaints of extortion activities such as kotong, hulidap, and other related illegal activities of PNP personnel. The TCDS shall head the Task Force with the Director for Investigation and Detective Management as the Deputy TF Commander. While there is a Task Force organized to put to check kotong activities, the PNP unit and station commanders are required to exert an honest to goodness effort to really eradicate the corrupt practices of some of their personnel both in the street and in the workplace. The implementation of this LOI carry with it the application of the Doctrine of Command Responsibility that makes commanders accountable for what his office does or fails
to do.

In the workplace, PNP commanders must be wary of bribery or lagay especially in the conduct of investigation that allows suspects to get off the hook or initiating trumped-up charges to compel the respondent to shell out money or by materials of value. This includes deliberate delay or refusal to serve arrest warrants for monetary consideration. In the street or outside the workplace, the most common is lagay committed along checkpoints victimizing viajeros either to facilitate passage or to spare their truck from getting inspected. Similar illegal act happens during traffic enforcement: cash for nonissuance of citation ticket, and the like. The worse is hulidap where law enforcers arrest an innocent target, plant incriminating evidence, and forced to buy his liberty or face the humiliation of getting hauled to the police station, booked, and jailed. These forms of Kotong activities by some PNP personnel totally bring down the credibility of the PNP organization if these are not quickly and seriously addressed. Strict implementation of this LOI is, therefore, a must to finally eradicate these corrupt practices. Special Operating Teams of all units and stations must go after the erring PNP members and should intensify their intelligence and investigative efforts to effectively curb these malpractices. Sanctions for these misdeeds must be seriously affected to deter others from committing similar offenses. The support of the NGOs and the community in general is vital in achieving the end goal of this LOI as the complaints and information can be obtained through coordination and consultation with them. Media involvement is also necessary in promoting this LOI and in encouraging the public to relay information relative to kotong activities to the authorities. The program, Isumbong Mo Kay Chief, PNP is one forum where the public could present their complaints and grievances. The National Support Units (NSUs) and the Police Regional Offices (PROs) shall create their own Task Groups with the Chief of the Directorial Staff (CDS) or the Chief Regional Directorial Staff (CRDS) as Task Group Commander.

Counter-Measures: Initiate a more aggressive intelligence and counter-intelligence efforts on suspected/reported kotong with the objective of identifying their runners/collectors, PNP personnel involved, other abusive law enforcement agents (e.g. LTO, MMDA, local traffic aides/enforcers) and their modus operandi. Continuing patrols in areas where kotong activities are reportedly being committed or rampant with the intention of preventing and/or neutralizing perpetrators of such activities. Commanders at all levels must exercise their disciplinary authority expeditiously over their personnel at all times and must be able to resolve at their level cases of kotong activities. Encourage a thorough information campaign to vulnerable targets of kotong activities such as viajeros and the like to report perpetrators and to participate without fear in their prosecution. Strengthen and intensify the implementation of this LOI and encourage total involvement within the command. Unit Commanders should be stricter in supervising and monitoring their personnel and their patrol areas and establish control measures to check their activities. In areas where there are minimal activities of threat groups, as far as practicable, checkpoints should be discouraged. Instead, mobile patrols must be increased. Motorcycle riding cops and personnel manning legitimate checkpoints should not be allowed to wear PNP black jackets so that they can be easily identified in their uniform. As an essential factor to strengthen the Task Force Anti-Kotong a more holistic approach such as involving the participation of other law enforcement agencies on the street and in the workplace, becomes an imperative.

III.SITUATION: Despite the government intensified anti-corruption campaign, the NHQ PNP is still receiving numerous complaints from the general public of extortion or kotong, hulidap, mulcting, bribery, and other forms of illegal activities by some PNP members in the street and in the workplace. These illegal activities usually occur but not limited on the following: during the conduct of an investigation; issuance of PNP clearances/licenses; traffic violation; illegal vending; and delivery of goods, fruits, vegetables, livestock, meat/fish by traders or viajeros. Some are involved in hulidap or arresting people on trumped-up charges and demanding settlement money. They also prey on PNP personnel who seek reassignment or promotion. IV. MISSION: The NHQ PNP through the Police Regional/District (NCR)/Provincial/ City Offices shall organize HONESTY TEAMS to conduct an intensive nationwide campaign against erring PNP personnel engaged in extortion or kotong, hulidap, mulcting, bribery, and other forms of illegal activities.

97

V. EXECUTION:
