President Rodrigo Duterte wanted full force in his campaign against illegal drugs and other crimes while leading the nation. He promised the police that he will give them the means to do a good job. He will provide the funds and the weapons to fight criminality, This was Duterte’s message to the Philippine National Police or PNP, to realize the sustainability of the fight against crime.
He said those promises during the Davao City Police Chief Ronald Dela Rosa installation as the new PNP Director General during the change of command rites at Camp Crame.
He wanted to be assured of the campaign’s success so to do that, the police and soldiers will be paid doubled so as not to be corrupted. His style might be working given the number of arrests done just shortly prior to his assuming office that surprised Pnoy a bit.
