195 police recruits in CL take oath

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — Police Regional Director PBGen. Matthew Baccay administered the oath of office to a total of 195 recruits in Central Luzon.

They were chosen after a stringent screening process conducted by the Regional Screening Committee on Recruitment.

“As new police personnel, strive to be an instrument of change and fulfillment of the goals of the Philippine National Police (PNP). Don’t waste the opportunity given to you and remember that many were called but only you were chosen,” Baccay told the recruits.

“Always remember that what is right must be left right, what is wrong must be set right. One of our focus is internal cleansing,” he emphasized.

“As neophytes in the PNP service, build your foundation on these values namely integrity, commitment, genuine concern and excellent police services to our communities,” Baccay added.

After their oath-taking ceremony, the new police recruits will further undergo one-year training at the Regional Training School 3 in Magalang, Pampanga.
