The Philippine National Police (PNP) on Friday reiterated that it is remaining true to its mandate to serve and protect the public amid findings of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) that the government “failed to respect and protect the citizens’ human rights.”
The PNP said that it is aware of the complaints filed against some police personnel who are allegedly involved in human rights violations during police operations but the cases were already taken into the legal spectrum.
Meantime, PNP Officer-in-Charge Police Lieutenant General Vicente Danao Jr. announced its updated minor reorganization of senior police officials occupying key positions in different levels of the organization effective last Wednesday.
Danao formally installed to new positions during joint turnover of Office ceremonies, noting that the retirement this month of senior officers triggered an upward movement in the echelon and opened opportunities for career advancement of other senior officers.
“The reassignment as recommended by the Senior Officers’ Placement and Promotion Board is based on the officers’ performance and how they can better contribute to the current operational thrusts of the PNP,” Danao said.
