The National Capital Region Police Office celebrated its 26th Ethics Day themed as “Matapat at Marangal na Serbisyo Publiko, Alay ko sa Mamamayang Pilipino during the first traditional Monday Flag Raising Ceremony of the year simultaneous in all Police District Headquarters region wide.
In NCRPO Grandstand at Camp Bagong Diwa, the celebration was spearheaded by Most Reverent OSCAR JAIME L FLORENCIO, SRHD, Bishop, Military Ordinariate of the Philippines, as Guest of Honor and Speaker, together with NCRPO Acting Regional Director, Police Brigadier General DEBOLD M SINAS.
“Taon- taon pinagdiriwang ng buong hukbo ng Kapulisan ng Pilipinas ang paggunita ng Araw ng Etika; Ngayon ay ang pang ika-dalawampu’t anim na selebrasyon natin dito,” Most Rev Florencio said.
“Napakagandang gawain ito at sana namay’y gawing taunang selebrasyon ng lahat ng mga kawani o sangay ng pamahalaan, sapagkat ang ganitong gawain ay naghahatid ng napakalakas na mensahe sa lahat – ito ay ang pagkilala sa tao, at alituntuning dapat sundin, at higit sa lahat, sa pagrespeto sa lahat ng aspeto ng biyayang bigay ng Maylikha sa lahat ng tao,” the Military Bishop further emphasized.
The celebration of the PNP Ethics Day is being held annually to remind all PNP personnel the importance of good moral and ethics in doing its day-to-day obligation as a dignified public servant.
The celebration was coincided by the conferment of appropriate awards to deserving NCRPO personnel as a form of recognition for their exemplary deeds.
Embodying the overall substance of his message, Most Reverent OSCAR JAIME L FLORENCIO underscored a significant adage of a famous philosopher named Socrates that, “An unexamined life is not worth living,” by which he reminded the whole NCRPO force that being honest and honourable is beautifully expressed and enshrined in the Police Officer’s Pledge and the Badge of Honor.
“The good life is one in which we make both ourselves and those around us true to form, true to self, and the only way to pursue that life is to honesty; Maging tapat sa lahat ng bagay! Matapat na sa simula pa!” he said.
He supplemented: “As police officers your badge reminds you to maintain the dignity of your character at all times and to strenuously enforce by example, a steady obedience to the laws of the land; By the regularity of your conduct, always endeavour to avoid any aspersion against the institution; Never swerve from your solemn oath office; violate your vows; or betray the public trust.”###
