Aquino vows continuing support to police, military


President Benigno S. Aquino III assured the members of the police and the military for continuing support of the government for their needs, particularly modern equipment and arms to do their jobs more effectively.

In a speech during the 48th foundation anniversary and alumni homecoming of the National Defense College of the Philippines (NDCP) in Makati City Friday night, he made a commitment to give law enforcers and security personnel the equipment they need from battle ship to helicopters as well as sophisticated firearms.

For instance, the President mentioned the Hamilton Class Cutter from the US which is set to arrive in the country within a week. With the arrival of the new ship, the government expects to boost its maritime patrol capability.

There will also be capability upgrades and modernization of the equipment of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) like the delivery of brand new choppers, patrol craft, and arms that the President said symbolizes the government’s recognition of the police and the military’s dedication to service.

“Wala ring kuwenta ang mga teorya at estratehiyang itinuturo ng NDCP kung pumupugak naman ang mga armas, sasakyan, at ibang gamit ng ating mga pulis—para bang nagmistulang kawawang cowboy na butas ang bota ng mga sundalo, at walang gana ang ating mga kawal. Kaya naman habang itinataguyod nila ang seguridad at buong tapang na nilalabanan ang karahasan at kriminalidad, tinatapatan natin ito ng pagtutok sa kanilang mga pangangailangan,” the President said.

Aside from giving the police and military equipment, the President said his administration also released 4,000 certificate of entitlement to lot allocation to the members of the police and military last month.

The government will expand the coverage of the housing program to Visayas and Mindanao, he said. The program will also include members of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology and Bureau of Fire Protection, the chief executive said.

At the same time, the President expressed optimism about the country’s condition saying there’s a better future that lies ahead for Filipinos with the reforms that his administration has initiated.

“Sa tulong ng NDCP, walang duda na magagawa natin ito. Harinawa’y sa sama-sama ninyong pagbabalik-tanaw ngayong gabi, higit pang tumibay ang inyong pagkakaisa at tiwala sa isa’t isa upang sa lalong madaling panahon, tuluyan na nating salubungin ang bukang-liwayway kung saan mas maaliwalas ang pamumuhay ng lahat ng Pilipino,” he said.

The National Defense College of the Philippines, the country’s leading institution on defense and security education, training and research, celebrated its 48th foundation anniversary on August 12, 2011 with the theme “Security Leaders at the Forefront of National Convergence and Development.”

The defense institution was established by virtue of Executive Order No. 44 signed by President Diosdado Macapagal on August 12, 1963 aimed at enhancing the competence of military and civilian leaders in the field of national security administration. (PCOO/PIA9-BST)
