PNP Chief : Mandatory ROTC to instill patriotism, nationalism among youth




The passage of the mandatory Reserved Officers Training Course (ROTC) for senior high school students by the House of Representatives got another support this time coming from the Philippine National Police(PNP).
"We are convinced that the ROTC program is designed to build a solid foundation to instill patriotism and nationalism among the youth to become useful citizens who possess the skills, knowledge and the heart to uphold and defend the country's national institutions and sovereignty," PNP Chief, Gen. Oscar Albayalde said.
The PNP chief said they would make representations in the drafting of the law and its implementing rules and regulations that would include subjects on law enforcement, disaster response, rule of law and civil rights in addition to basic military science subjects.

"A small country like ours deserve to have a strong reserve force that can be called upon to augment the existing complement of regular forces. God forbid that we will need to mobilize our reserve force like what we did in World War II, but when the situation presents itself, the reservists shall prove themselves ready and up to the task," he said.
