Message of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during the 119th Police Service Anniversary Celebration

Event 119th Police Service Anniversary Celebration

My warmest greetings to the Philippine National Police as you celebrate the 119th Anniversary of the Police Service.

For more than a century, the brave men and women of our police force have been the vanguard of peace and order across the country.

I congratulate everyone — especially the outstanding units and deserving personnel that will be awarded today — for your crucial role in making the PNP a highly dynamic, professional and responsive organization.

Be assured of our nation’s gratitude for your significant contributions to our campaign against illegal drugs, criminality and terrorism.

I likewise extend our appreciation for your selfless service as frontliners in our fight against COVID-19 pandemic. I ask you to ensure that the PNP will remain pandemic-resilient by adopting protective protocols in the new normal.

May you build on the gains of your achievements and continue to serve with honor and justice.

Again, happy anniversary. Mabuhay kayong lahat!
