NCRPO, Its Leadership, and Programs


Change is inevitable, and that is why when there's new leadership in an organization, there's always a transition process. But for the new Regional Director of the National Capital Region Police Office, PBGen Jonnel C. Estomo it seems that there's no change at all but an opportunity to make things better. From being the Provincial Director in Cavite to the position of Regional Director in Region V and now, Regional Director of NCRPO, PBGen Estomo brought his tested program, the S.A.F.E. program, which is in line with the Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief, PGen Rodolfo S. Azurin, Jr.'s current program the Malasakit, Kaayusan, Kapayapaan tungo sa Kaunlaran.

With the changes in time and the use of social media, NCRPO is riding the waves of trends. PLt Col Dexter Versola, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO)'s Spokesperson, met with us, bloggers to spread the news and information about NCRPO's activities and programs. One of which is the S.A.F.E NCRPO.

The S.A.F.E. NCRPO program stands for Seen Appreciated Felt Extraordinary and it is described as...
The Police must be seen.
All programs must be appreciated by the people.
All programs must be felt by the people.
The actions of the Police should be extraordinary.

According to PLtCol Versola, the current NCRPO leadership is about the "rule of law." All programs, projects, and activities of NCRPO are based on the existing laws.

Another piece of information shared by PLtCol Versola is the quad concept of operation of the PNP.
Prevent crime by law enforcement operations.
Preempt crime through police intelligence.
Investigate crime through the investigation directorate.
Organize the police and community through Police Community Relations.
So, basically, in my understanding, all of the programs are all about the visibility of the police force. Right now, the yuletide season or the ber months is here and we all know that at this time of season more and more illegal activities are happening.

Though I love to tell more about NCRPO, I think it is best be seen on their Facebook page the activities and programs that they are initiating every day. Just visit S.A.F.E. NCRPO for more details.
