- NCRPO Chief Camilos Cascolan plans to award and recognize policemen who do “simple good deeds”
- He said that this is important to recognize peaceful and crime-free communities
- By doing this, the public will know that keeping and sustaining peace and order is not easy
Head of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Director Camilos Cascolan stated that it’s best to reward our policemen for doing good deeds in their community.
Cascolan has already instructed all police commanders in Metro Manila to take note of “simple acts of goodness” by their cops. Those who will be recognized will be given a paid leave of absence that they can use to spend more time with their loved ones.
The NCRPO chief stated that most of the time cops who have kept their areas “crime-free” are often not recognized. He was quoted by ABS-CBN saying, “Kaya nga ho sabi ko po, mas maganda siguro kung bigyan natin ng award iyung mga peaceful communities… Sa simple good deeds po ng ating mga kapulisan, malalaman po ng mga tao na grabe pala ang pag-maintain at pag-sustain ng kapulisan natin ng peace and order sa kanilang lugar.”
[It’s better if we award peaceful communities. By recognizing the simple good deeds of our cops, the public will know how difficult it is to maintain and sustain the peace and order of their communities.]
Cascolan, however, clarified that as much as they will applaud good deeds, erring cops will still face the consequences of their actions.
“We have zero tolerance on erring, abusive and tardy policemen,” Cascolan was quoted by Manila Bulletin.
