PNP Chief leads interfaith assembly for internal cleansing program

The Philippine National Police (PNP) internal cleansing program has been intensified for years and continuously reinforcing the “preventive” component of a three-pronged internal cleansing strategy alongside the equally important “punitive” and “restorative” components, according to PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde.

“I would underscore the fact the we truly determine the decisive internal cleansing campaign as the PNP promised strong call for positive change. Sadly, the PNP continues to face problems brought about by police scalawags especially those involved in illegal drugs and other illegal activities that continued to ruin the image of our organization,” Albayalde said.
