PPSA Inaugural Ceremony and Launching of the Pioneer Batch Class 2024

Secretary EDUARDO M. AÑO spearheads the launching of the Philippine Public Safety Academy as the Guest of Honor and Speaker.

The Undersecretary for Public Safety NESTOR F QUINSAY, JR. attends the said event at Camp Vicente Lim, Calamba, Laguna.

Here’s an excerpt from Secretary Año’s speech:

Being the pioneering batch of the PPSA, you will be the ones to set the stage on the traditions, behavior, culture, and unwritten codes by which the succeeding cadets will follow. Kaya naman mabigat ang papel at responsibilidad ninyo sa pagtatag ng mga sistema, kalakaran at kaugaliang maghuhulma ng mga katangian ng tapang, katapatan at paglilingkod sa mga susunod sa inyong mga yapak. I therefore challenge you to set the bar high and to create a culture of patriotism, honor and excellence within the Academy. Trust that the Department of the Interior and Local Government is always willing and ready to offer our full support to the PPSA as we continue our aim of building more peaceful, safe and resilient Filipino communities. Together, let us embody the tenets of courage, integrity and service as we embark on this new beginning for the Philippine Public Safety Academy and set sail on a journey to create a better horizon for the nation and our countrymen.

An excerpt from PPSC President Ricardo F. De Leon’s welcoming remarks talking about the activities leading up to the launching of the pilot batch: 2024.

We are now faced with a new challenge. We undertook benchmarking activities for the various professional service provider academies, including the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP), the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy (PMMA), and the Philippine Military Academy (PMA), prior to the launch of the PPSA. Our goal, as with PMA, is to have no attrition in the PPSA. As we prepare for the opening of classes, we held faculty orientation and consultations with educators and experts to ensure the curriculum is polished and aligned with CHED requirements, the National Qualification Framework, and the International Qualification Framework… Indeed there is a reason to celebrate the academy’s inception. Today as we launch the PPSA and its pilot batch, it is with great honor that I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for your presence at this event, particularly to those who supported and contributed their best efforts in ensuring that the legacy of our outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte and our SILG, as well as the PPSC, is carried forward. Our cadet’s graduation in 2024 coincides with the last quote from the PNPA’s Fire and Jail.
