Local Police Institution Cites Linkages with Foreign Law Enforcement Agencies


Byline: ELENA L. ABEN

With the changing times and with crimes fast becoming a global menace that transcend international boundaries, the need for the Philippine National Police (PNP) to become globally-competitive in order to give it a cutting edge in combatting crimes is imperative.

It is for this reason that the Philippine Public Safety College (PPSC) under the leadership of its president, Dr. Rosita Evangelista, has institutionalized foreign linkages programs that have resulted to the forging of bilateral training agreement for the regular sending of its public safety student officers, officials and training staff to such institutions abroad as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the different police departments in the United States.

Through the efforts of its president, the PPSC has come up with bilateral and multilateral cooperation on sustained law enforcement and policing through faculty and student exchange training program (FSETP) with its constituent unit, the National Police College (NPC), and the PNP as implementors.

FESTP, which shall be a continuing program of the PPSC, stands to benefit not only the PNP, the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), but the government of the Philippines (GOP) in general.

According to Evangelista, crimes are fast becoming a global menace that transcends international boundaries threatening the stability of the socio-political, economic and democratic order of peace-loving countries, among them the Philippines.

The problem on criminality, she said, requires borderless police efforts and synergy through bilateral and multilateral cooperation.

The September 11 attack at the World Trade Center (WTC) three years ago that claimed the lives of thousands of innocent civilians, the PPSC president said, is an eye-opener for sustained and concerted global efforts to combat not only terrorism but all forms of crimes against humanity.

A stronger, unified and determined effort of international community to mount against terrorists is imperative, she added.

According to Evangelista, the development of modernized police training programs based on world-class academic standards is a proven way to ensure international police cooperation.

"Becoming globally competitive has become imperative and cutting edge in combatting crimes," Evangelista said, adding: "Global standards also mean modern acquisition of crime-fighting tools and equipment and board understanding of knowledge, skills, and technical know how to maximize its advantages for efective response against crimes sophistication."

She said that with the progressive strides in public safety training, FSETP has always been an essential component of the PPSC traning package in the continuing enhancement of police and law enforcement standards, knowledge and skills necessary for the effective and efficient delivery of public safety services.

The PPSC president, who spent more than 30 years of her life in the police service, stressed that a highly committed, capable, efficient and value-driven public safety officer is one who is fully equipped with necessary values, knowledge, skills and competencies required of his organization, profession and career.

Ideally, his education, training and preparation must be enhanced by attendance to exposures abroad as this will further develop his worth and self-esteem as a person resulting in a world-class and empowered public safety professional committed to the culture of excellence, she said.
