           The Philippine Public Safety College (PPSC) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is opening the new and enhanced Master in Public Safety Administration (MPSA) this April 2016. The MPSA is a one year scholarship program for highly qualified senior executives in government and private sector, particularly the uniformed officers in the public safety and security services.

           Recognized by law through Executive Order No. 400, Series of 2007 and reaffirmed by the PPSC Board of Trustees through its Board Resolution No. 2, Series of 2016, the invigorated MPSA stands as the flagship and capstone program of the PPSC in the professional training and education of uniformed personnel in the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP); as well as selected senior executives and fellows from other government institutions, academe, industries and policy think tanks. Aside from being recognized by theCommission on Higher Education (CHED) as a highly specialized graduate curricular offering, the MPSA is also accredited by the Career Executive Service Board (CESB) as equivalent to the Career Executive Service (CES) written examination of the CES eligibility process, pursuant to CESB Resolution 764 series of 2008.

            As a high level policy, strategy and leadership program—that specializes on the governance of public safety and internal peace and security—the new MPSA is well-timed to sustain the momentum of building a critical mass of leaders, scholars and practitioners for the multi-sectoral and non-military component of national security.
