Three members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) assigned in the Cagayan Valley region passed the 2019 Bar Examination.
The new lawyers of Cagayan Valley PNP were P/SSg Rudy Amores Badolin Jr., Special Investigation/Project PNCO, Nueva Vizcaya Police Provincial Office; PSSg Jeffrey Roy Raza Tolentino, Prosecutor, Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Internal Affairs Service; and PSSg Wilbert Hernandez, Intelligence Operative of Santiago City Police Office.
PNP Region 2 (PRO-2) Director Brig. Gen. Angelito Casimiro congratulated the three new lawyers for bringing pride not only to PRO-2, but the entire police force.
“I am so proud of our police officers who passed the bar examinations for the year 2019. This marks another success for us Valley Cops as we move forward to professionalizing our ranks. Talagang hindi maikakaila na maraming magagaling na pulis. Madadagdagan na naman ang mga abogado sa hanay ng PNP na magsisilbing legal advisers ng mga alagad ng batas,” He said.
The said bar passers of the PNP may become Commissioned Officers through lateral entry by joining the PNP Legal Service. They will also be given reassignments to units where they can best help the PNP organization with their expertise in law.
