Thousands of cops finally get guns
MANILA (UPDATED) - The government is alloting P9 billion for the Philippine National Police's "transformational plan" from 2013 to 2016, President Aquino said during the ceremonial distribution of newly acquired pistols to PNP personnel.
The President said the plan will involve upgrading the capabilities and equipment of the national police force, as well as address its lack of manpower.
He said the PNP will be hiring 15,000 non-uniformed personnel to allow uniformed police doing administrative work to go to the front lines.
"Sa halip na maghapong nakaposte sa mga presinto’t opisina ang ating mga pulis, magsisilbi silang karagdagang puwersa sa pagbabantay sa mga komunidad," Aquino said.
Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas said it will address the shortage of PNP personnel.
"Inaprubahan ng Pangulo 'yung pagtugon sa pangangailangan ‘nung PNP. Unang-una, 'yung kakulangan sa personnel, ano. Iniutos ng Pangulo na isang mabilis na paraan ay mag-hire ng civilian na personnel at sila ang gagawa ng trabaho ng mga (nasa) desk na sa kasalukuyan ay pulis ang gumagawa," Roxas told reporters.
The plan also involves the purchase of 13,000 units of M-4 rifles, communication and laboratory equipment.
Roxas said the PNP will also conduct a bidding for the purchase of 2,500 patrol cars.
New pistols
President Aquino handed new pistols to selected PNP personnel in a ceremonial distribution of 22,603 newly acquired Glock 17 pistols in Camp Crame.
It is the first tranche of the 74,879 pistols purchased by the PNP in its target to reach a 1:1 police-to-pistol ratio.
The PNP took pride of the savings that it was able to generate in what it described as its most transparent and rigid bidding, allowing it to purchase more pistols at a low price.
The market price of the pistol is estimated
