Philippine National Police (PNP) along with other government agencies, private sectors and stakeholders successfully held the 8th National Advisory Group Summit through hybrid modality on Friday in Camp BGen Rafael Crame, Quezon City.
PNP Officer-in Charge PLtGen Rhodel O Sermonia said the event aims to enhance organizational focus on PNP’s core functions namely, crime prevention and crime solution to align with the agency’s performance scorecard and with the active support of our stakeholders.
“We are here also to re-examine or re-calibrate our approaches, especially in strengthening the integrity of the police organization, in manifesting honesty, accountability and upholding moral principle in the exercise of our mandate, which our dear President Ferdinand “Bong Bong” Marcos Jr has commanded us.
This is to ensure the continuity of public rapport and to sustain with great respect and wide support to the authority that we all possess as uniformed servicemen of the republic”, OIC PLtGen Sermonia said during the first day of summit.
The 2-day summit with this year’s theme “Revisiting the PNP P.A.T.R.O.L.

As of November 2022, the PNP has over 20,000 advisers from different sectors of society, such as the academe, media, religious, business, government, youth and other various private and public offices.
PNP OIC PLtGen Sermonia also stated that as the PNP desires to attain real and lasting transformation in the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, the PNP also looks forward to the continued implementation of its plans, programs, projects, and activities that contribute to the overall attainment of organization’s vision in partnership with our advisory groups.
“As members of the PNP Advisory Group from the national headquarters down to the directorial staff, national support units, police regional offices, district offices, provincial police offices and city and municipal police stations, you were all chosen because of your integrity, probity, excellent leadership, as well as for being active advocates of transformation, transparency, and good governance” PLtGen Sermonia added.
