MANILA, Aug. 30 — The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) said on Thursday that 215 NCRPO personnel officially completed the Modified Philippine National Police (PNP) Special Counter Operation Unit Training (SCOUT) for class 2012-02 “Banwar”.

NCRPO Director Alan Purisima said that the SCOUT training is designed for jungle terrain operations, including responding to emergencies during calamities.

Purisima added that aside from maintaining peace and order, it is also our duty and responsibility to secure public safety, especially in times of calamities.

“We make sure that every PNP personnel deployed is ever-ready, capable and efficient in handling his duties and responsibilities,” Purisima said.

The month-long counter insurgency training developed mental and physical skills of police participants. Principles and techniques of urban crisis response operations primarily on search and rescue (SAR) were also covered in the training, which developed camaraderie and teamwork among the participants, he said.

The closing ceremony was held Thursday at the NCRPO Grandstand, Camp Bagong Diwa, Bicutan, Taguig City.

This is the fourth PNP-SCOUT training under the administration of NCRPO Director Purisima, which is the highest number of training conducted under the term of a NCRPO chief.

Purisima wants NCRPO to continuously hold more trainings to provide its personnel more competencies that will spell better police-service to the public. (PNA)
