PNP- FPI Join Forces Vs Corruption

ALREADY fed-up with frequent reports of corruption and irregularities even at the business front, the Federation of Philippine Industries’ (FPI) has joined hands with the Philippine National Police (PNP) in a bid to combat the problem head on.
In a move seen to cleanse their own ranks, FPI has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the PNP that would define the coordination and cooperation initiatives between the two organizations in the fight against criminality, including illegal drugs and corruption. 
To highlight the significance of the MOA, it was no less than Chairman Dr. Jesus Lim Arranza who signed for FPI while PNP Director General Ronald M. Dela Rosa represented the police organization.
The agreement is expected to pave the way for the establishment of a sincere cooperation and communication between the two parties to strengthen the efforts of the state’s primordial policy for a secured, peaceful and orderly community.
The PNP, under the agreement, shall establish programs and activities that will sustainably and constantly carry into effect the human rights services, education, advocacy, public information and research concerning PNP personnel or persons working in the PNP especially those handling police community relations, among others.
FPI for its part, shall make available relevant resources, based on its members’ corporate social responsibilities, being mindful of the dictum that “crime prevention is everybody’s concern” when needed by the PNP.
According to Arranza, the MOA is a milestone in the campaign against criminality and a testimonial of the Duterte government’s sincerity in its transparency program by engaging the cooperation of private groups like FPI.
“We are encouraged to be even more watchful for suspicious activities around us by the PNP gesture of formalizing our cooperation and coordination through the MOA” Arranza said.
He added that “this should be a good example for other private groups to follow suit. If only every Filipino would be an anti-criminality and anti-corruption advocate, the Philippines could be among the safest places to stay in the world.”
