Director, Special Action Force

February 14, 2020

In line with the latest directive of PGEN ARCHIE FRANCISCO F GAMBOA, Chief, PNP, I am ordering all Chiefs of Offices and Unit Commanders to ensure the strict adherence to the PNP’s “NO TAKE POLICY” when it comes to all forms of illegal gambling and Illegal sources.

Let me point out that SAF will continue to support the Revitalized Internal Cleansing Program of the PNP and we will closely monitor developments on this policy to ensure its strict implementation from Headquarters SAF down to the Special Action Companies in the field.

As public servants, the rank and file as well as our NUP and other employees in the PNP organization are mandated to live up with our constitutional mandate and to our badge of honor. We are required to display the highest form of discipline and perform our task beyond expectations because the obligation of a public servant is to uphold what is moral and just.

During my stint as the Director, SAF, I will not tolerate any member of this unit who will be involved in any form of illegal activity particularly in receiving gifts and bribes from illegal gambling and other illegal activities.

On the other hand, we will constantly conduct the Special Action Team Weekly Interactive Meetings or SWIM as one of our emerging best practices and part of our Internal Cleansing Program. The activity aimed to promote integrity, enrich the moral values of each SAF Trooper in their respective workplace and even in their homes. I also encourage all Battalion Commanders to initiate different activities in your respective areas to promote healthy lifestyle to our personnel.
