CAGAYAN de Oro City (BEN BALCE/Golden Journal) - Northern Mindanao police head Chief Superintendent Lyndel Desquitado confirmed last week that the police regional command has hired 219 new police recruits, 33 females, to its police force.
Desquitado was the one administered the oath-taking of the new police recruits at the regional headquarters grandstand here in Camp Alagar.
“The new police recruits are part of the 2nd cycle qualified applicants for the 2015 quota who passed the regional police screening committee,” said Desquitado.
Desquitado said the police recruits would undergo a one year rigorous theoretical and physical training that will measure their endurance and determination, aside from enhancing their competence and discipline as a police officer.
He said that the new police officers would also endure physical conditioning and internalization of the Police Operational Procedure and Basic Laws, self-defense, firearm proficiency and adeptness in the field of investigation, patrol and traffic management.
