    Use your newly-acquired skills to serve and protect the public.

    This, in a nutshell, was Davao City 1st district Rep. Paolo “Pulong” Duterte message to local police officers who recently completed the mandatory leadership course for non-commissioned officers.

    Through his son Rodrigo “Rigo” Duterte II, the Davao solon congratulated the 40 graduates of the Philippine National Police (PNP)’s Public Safety Senior Leadership Course (PSSLC) at the National Police Training Institute, Regional Training Center 11 (RTC-11) last May 17.

    “After the celebrations and as you return to your respective units and stations, always remember the teachings you learned in the past six months, for sooner or later, you’ll apply such knowledge,” Rigo said on behalf of his father.

    “Congratulations for completing the mid-level management course and training on responsible have all the reason to be proudly sitting there beaming with pride. You have accomplished a remarkable deed worth another feather in your cap,” he added.

    The PSSLC is designed to provide senior police non-commissioned officers (PNCOs) with requisite knowledge and skills on general functional areas of unit administration, management, and leadership.

    The second-term lawmaker reminded the graduates to use the knowledge and skills they have gained to help build and sustain safe and livable communities in the country.

    Rep. Duterte added that everyone expects the cops to be fully equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for management and leadership, after enduring six months away from their families to competes the course.

    RTC–Davao regional chief Police Colonel Marvin Fontalva also congratulated the PSSLC graduates. Fontalva said that he is proud of the milestone that the graduates have reached.

    “These policemen went through such a leadership course to improve their competence and skills in handling their respective duties, given they are now on a managerial level. We expect that upon their return to their units, they could apply what they have learned,” Fontalva said.
