MANILA, Jan. 24 – The Philippine National Police (PNP) said Tuesday that Monday’s celebration of the Chinese New Year was generally peaceful.

PNP spokesman Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr. said there has been no major incident recorded during the festivities,

Cruz said this during the Tuesday edition of the radio program “Talking Points” aired over DZRB Radyo ng Bayan, which is produced by Philippine Information Agency (PIA).

The Chinese New Year celebration wrapped up during the wee hours of Tuesday as several groups celebrated it with dragon dances.

Meanwhile, Cruz said the PNP is aiming to acquire certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) on Quality Management Systems.

Cruz said the ISO certification will validate that the services provided by the PNP to the public are in compliance to global standards.

He said this is also part of the reforms currently implemented in the PNP. Cruz added that they challenge the entire PNP personnel to be competitive and at par with their police counterpart across the globe.

Some offices in the agency like the Office of the PNP Chief, Civil Security Group, PNP Crime Laboratory and PNP Fire Arms and Explosives Division have already received certification.

PNP will continue to strengthen its efforts to acquire ISO certification for the entire police agency. (PNA) DCT/JCA
