The Philippine National Police considers the report of the World Justice Project (WJP) as a challenge, PNP Chief Guillermo Eleazar said Friday.

“We have to do more in maintaining peace and order and improving our commitment to serve and protect the Filipino to continue having their trust and confidence when it comes to the justice system in the country,” Eleazar said.

In the WJP data, only three major cities in the Philippines were compared to a nationwide scope done in the majority of the countries surveyed. Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao, according to the report are appropriate representations of the peace and order situation of the country, being the major centers of the economic activities.

According to Eleazar, the ultimate goal of the PNP for every Filipino in order to feel the true sense of security and justice in the country has been a work in progress, and inputs from various institution.

The PNP, he said has stepped up its coordination with the Department of Justice to review questionable police operations relating to the campaign against illegal drugs. It has also instituted reforms to ensure quick disciplinary actions on erring PNP personnel.

He said that they have also initiated projects to immediately respond to the calls for assistance and complaints of the public.

Eleazar also believes that in the past few months, the significant improvements have already made positive impacts on the perception of the Filipino people to the Philippine National Police and to the security and justice in the country.

He also assured the public that the Philippine National Police will continuously strengthen the transparency and accountability in the police organization and tirelessly work and initiate reforms to ensure that every police officer would live up to the high ethical, moral and service standards of the Filipino people.
