ILOILO CITY, Aug. 26 (PNA) — The Police Regional Office 6 (PRO-6) earned a ‘Best Practice’ rating in the evaluation conducted recently by the Compliance Evaluation Process Team from Camp Crame.
The CEP Team was composed of representatives from the Center for Police Strategy Management (CSPM) and the Technical Working Group (TWG) on PNP Peace and order Agenda for Transformation and upholding the Rule-Of-Law (P.A.T.R.O.L.) Plan 2030.
The evaluation was part of the Performance Governance System (PGS) certification and reporting in the implementation of the good governance program.
The evaluation, composed of the Strategic Readiness Test (SRT) and Performance Audit (PA), was held August 10 to 14.
Headed by Police Director Wilfredo Franco of the Directorate for Police Community Relations, the CEP Team used focus group discussion, personnel interview, documents review and field visit as methodologies in determining the compliance of PRO-6 on the elements of the second level of the PGS pathway – the Compliance Stage.
PRO-6 seeks to attain the compliant 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.
In a five-point rating system, the evaluators gave PRO-6 a rating above 4.21 points or a scale equivalent to “Best Practice.”
Western Visayas top cop, Chief Supt. Bernando Diaz, said the rating showed PRO-6’s endeavored towards the attainment of a highly capable, effective and credible police service as innovative approaches.
Meanwhile, PRO-6 is set to complete the compliance evaluation process on Sept. 11, 2015 with an oral presentation before a panel from Camp Crame.
Last year, PRO-6 was conferred with PGS-Initiated Status and received Silver Eagle Award for its report.
For Compliance Stage, PRO-6 is vying for a higher rating as confirmation for the litany of tangible gains it achieved in adapting good governance through the implementation of the PNP P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030. (PNA)
