CAMP CRAME, Quezon City, Jan. 16 (PIA) -- The Police Regional Office-Cordillera (PRO-COR) was conferred the Philippine National Police Performance Governance System (PGS) Proficient Status with overall all rating of 96.86 percent besting all other regional offices and units.
PRO-Cor Regional Director P/CSupt. Elmo Francis Sarona together with some members of the Regional Advisory Council (RAC) received the prestigious Gold EagleAward, a plaque of PGS- Proficiency Status and certificate of conferment during the awarding at the national police headquarters on Monday (Jan. 15).
Second placer was PRO-13 with 96.67 percent rating and third was PRO-8 with 96.26 percent.
PRO-COR attained the proficient status by formalizing its advisory council, cascading its strategy to individual personnel, aligning its budget to strategy, institutionalizing the use of balanced scorecard, implementing a responsive communication plan, and collating its emerging best practices on crime prevention and solution.
‘This is a team effort among the personnel of PRO-COR, the RAC and those in one way or the other, contributed in attaining the award. We should always stand on guard to maintain or even perform better and give the best in our work’, Sarona said.
Peterey Bautista, PRO-Cor RAC chairman, congratulated Team PRO-COR for a job well done and challenged them to continue performing their best for public service.
In July last year, the PGS Proficiency Evaluation Audit Team conducted validation and monitoring of PRO-Cor. The team inspected and checked document audit, conducted focused group discussions and interviewed some PNP key personnel and RAC members. A facility walkthrough in the offices was conducted.
Under the transformation agenda known as PNP P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030: the “Peace and Order Agenda for Transformation and Upholding of the Rule of Law,” the PNP has achieved meaningful strides in enhancing the procurement and budget systems, upgrading skills and capabilities, improving crime prevention and crime solution, and promoting active community engagement and partnership.
