”You canot overemphasize the importance of crime laboratory in police work”, said NCRPO Chief PMGEN GUILLERMO LORENZO T ELEAZAR in his speech in the inauguration and blessing of the newly constructed Northern Police District Crime Laboratory Office (CLO) this morning in Caloocan City Police Station, Samson Rd., Sangandaan, Caloocan City.
The NCRPO Chief commended the men and women of the CLO for their invaluable support to the current administration’s war against illegal drugs which attributed to the decrease in the occurence of crime in Metro Manila by 58%.
Further, he made mention of the distinct function of the CLO in police work and its importance considering the PNP’s campaign against illegal drugs. ”In the intensified campaign against illegal drugs, lalo natin nakita ang importansya ng crime lab”, he said.
The PNP Crime Laboratory provides scientific investigation and other technical support services to the PNP in aid of criminal investigation. In the performance of its core function, PMGEN ELEAZAR recognized its need for respect and independence.
The PNP continously exerts efforts to modernize and professionalize all units especially the Crime Laboratory in aid of its vision of a more capable police service by 2030.
