Please, not all cops with pending cases are rogues

Because of the spate of news reports on high-profile crimes allegedly committed by police officers, calls have been sounded for a review of the list of cases filed against cops. We all know that we police officers are under different authorities that have disciplinary powers over us—from the People’s Law Enforcement Board to the mayor to the Internal Affairs Service (IAS), the National Police Commission (Napolcom), the Civil Service Commission and the Ombudsman, and to our own superiors. As to the purpose or benefits of having many disciplinary authorities with jurisdiction over us, this is still a subject of debate.

I. Who are the organizers of the Search?

The COPS is a joint undertaking of the Rotary Club of New Manila East (RCNME) and the Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI). In 1999 the Metrobank Foundation set-up an endowment fund of Ten Million Pesos specifically for the recognition of outstanding police officers. Using the technology and experience MBFI has gained in the conduct of the Search for Outstanding Teachers (SOT), the Foundation ensures objectivity in the evaluation of the nominees to the competition.
