CAMP OLIVAS — Police Regional Office 3 director Brig. Gen. Jose Hidalgo Jr. has administered the oath of office of some 600 new recruits following their presentation by Deputy Director for Operations Col. Rudecindo at the PRO3 Parade Grounds, Camp Olivas, City of San Fernando, Pampanga.
The 600 successful applicants were all given the rank of Patrolman.
The new police personnel were chosen after a stringent screening process conducted by the Regional Screening Committee on Recruitment headed by Deputy Regional Director for Administration Brig. Gen. Enrico Vargas.
After the oath-taking ceremony, the new police recruits will further undergo a one-year training at the Regional Training Center 3 in Magalang, Pampanga.
“As you take this oath, remember that you are becoming a part of something greater than yourself.
You are becoming a guardian, a protector, and a beacon of hope for those who look to law enforcement for safety and justice,” Hidalgo told the recruits.
