76 new officials of the Philippine National Police (PNP) will undergo training for the Special Action Force (SAF,) according to Director General Oscar Albayalde.
Albayalde gave the statement during the badge of honor and service lunch ceremony for the 76 new officials of PNP who are members of Philippine National Police Academy Maragtas Class of 2018 on Friday.
The training will last for six months and if trainees fail to pass, their status will be studied by authorities before being sent into a summary hearing which could lead to being relieved of service.
“We expect them to finish the course,” said Albayalde.
Albayalde earlier said that the military training is important for cops because aside from discipline, times are changing especially when it comes to security situations in the cities.
