Three police stations in Negros Oriental passed the initiation stage in the Performance Governance System (PGS), a tool in tracking the performance of cops on the street, that when institutionalized, will provide scorecards to the 153,157 police officers in the country.
These are the Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office, headed by Senior Supt. Mariano Natu-el Jr., Guihulngan City Police Station, led by Senior Insp. Benedict Poblete, and the Dumaguete CPS, headed by Supt. James Goforth.
So far, 186 stations nationwide have been certified in the initiation stage, and the program is ongoing in Mindanao and Manila.
A team from the Directorate for Intelligence, headed by Chief Superintendents Vert Chavez and Augusto Marquez Jr., was in the province last week to conduct a unit certification among the six police stations of component cities. Two have passed the initiation stage, and the four were given time to prepare more.
Marquez, who used to be a director of NOPPO, said the PNP is vying for the institutionalization stage of the PGS, requiring all the 1,766 police stations in the country to pass the Initiation stage. The others include Compliance, Proficiency and Institutionalization stages.*JG
