Former Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Christopher Lawrence ‘Bong’ Go has lauded the Philippine National Police (PNP) for braving all kinds of dangers in support of President Rodrigo Duterte’s crusade against corruption, crime and illegal drugs.
“Importante kayo sa laban natin para protektahan ang ating mga anak at mabigyan sila ng mas magandang kinabukasan (You are important in our fight to protect our children and give them a better future),” Go said during the graduation ceremony of the Public Safety Basic Recruit Course RTC3 Class 2018-01 ALPHA TO JULIET at the National Police Training Institute (NPTI) in Magalang, Pampanga on Friday.
Go added that the courage and commitment of the police to ensure peace and order in support of the administration’s reform agenda is important so that economic progress will be felt and enjoyed by every Filipino.
“Sa inyo nakasalalay hindi lang ang kapayapaan kundi maging ang kaunlaran ng ating bansa. Hindi naman kasi lalago ang mga negosyo kung hindi ligtas ang ating mga lansangan,” Go said.
(Not only peace depends upon you but also the progress of the nation. Commerce will not prosper if our streets are not safe.)
Go congratulated the graduates of the NPTI.
PSBRC is one of the training programs conducted by the NPTI. It is a 24-week intensive and progressive training designed for newly-appointed police and non-commissioned officers to provide them with basic knowledge and skills in police science, administration, combat operation and tactics.
He encouraged the graduates to not stop seeking for new knowledge as they play a vital role in keeping the country safe and secure.
“Always keep enhancing your knowledge and seek to improve it because the government needs you to be highly competent and committed,” Go said.
