May 21, 2018 @ 21:51

Antipolo City 2nd District Representative Romeo Acop is eyeing the adoption of military rank for the Philippine National Police (PNP).

The Rizal politiko’s proposed measure was approved by the House of Representatives on third and final reading on May 15.

“The bill seeks to stop public and military confusion on how cops should be addressed,” Acop said.

Under the bill, PNP officers’ titles will be changed to the following:

Director General to Police General
Deputy Director General to Police Lieutenant General
Director to Police Major General
Chief Superintendent to Police Brigadier General
Senior Superintendent to Police Colonel
Superintendent to Police Lieutenant Colonel
Chief Inspector to Police Major
Senior Inspector to Police Captain
Inspector to Police Lieutenant

For non-commissioned officers, these will be adopted:

Senior Police Officer IV to Police Master Sergeant
Senior Police Officer III to Police Technical Sergeant
Senior Police Officer II to Police Staff Sergeant
Senior Police Officer I to Police Sergeant
Police Officer III to Police Corporal
Police Officer II to Patrolman First Class
Police Officer I to Patrolman
