Q

What are the reforms/measures undertaken to professionalize the police, fire and jail personnel?

A

The following are the reforms/measures undertaken by PPSC to professionalize the police, fire and jail personnel:

Education and Training

For PNPA, the revised curriculum for the four-year BSPS cadetship program composed of academic and non-academic instructions was implemented. Cadets undergoing the program should earn 221 total academic units which is more than the CHED requirements to obtain a bachelor’s degree. The Academy also delved on three major aspects: linkages, leadership and character development and community service. Social and community exposure of the cadets make them aware of the common things that they can address once they graduate from the Academy.

Curriculum Development

  1. Conduct of Training Needs Analysis (TNA). Conduct training on enhancing/enriching the curriculum.
  2. Revisiting of existing Programs of Instruction in all courses to assess and identify subjects that are overlapping, redundant, outdated and irrelevant to current job description of police, fire and jail officers.
  3. Standardization of Instructional Materials/Course Compendiums to address the need for the determination of details or specifics on the existing POI.
  4. Standardization of Comprehensive Examinations in all courses by utilizing existing parameters/guidelines on test construction and development.   Test items will be more job-related and will focus on the role of the police-what to do, how to do it and why do or did it.
  5. Laid the groundwork for the proposed creation of a Corps of Professors, envisioned to be a separate and distinct service from the three (3) uniformed bureaus command structure.
  6. Rationalized/Increased the honoraria rate of in-house and guest lecturers.
  7. Created the PPSC Faculty Rank Classification Board (FRCB) to enhance rank classification, course/subject rating and PPSC Faculty members nationwide.
  8. Implemented the Faculty Assessment through Computerized Evaluation System (FACES). This   is a reliable tool to assess the performance of its faculty members in a effective and efficient manner using   computer software that   provides speedy retrieval, storage and interpretation of evaluation results, real time assessment results for decision-making, non-interference of human factors and huge saving in man-hours of collating the answers.
  9. Conducted faculty enhancement training/seminars that depart from the traditional, stereotype lecture method of training. This new approach is student-centered and participative involving the use of adult learning methodology.
  10. Conduct of seminar on comprehensive Test Construction development/analysis.
  11. Reactivated the Central Registrar’s Office to serve as the official repository of all academic files and records of graduates of the PPSC System.
  12. Instituted projects to upgrade physical facilities at the PPSC Head Office.
  13. Upgraded physical facilities at the constitutive Institutes and Regional Training Schools based on model structures of classrooms, barracks, and mess halls.
  14. Institutionalized and implemented the Client Satisfaction Feedback (CSF) survey questionnaire to determine the level of satisfaction of the students.
  15. Conduct of National Assessment Test on core subjects.
