The 24th CPNP

The Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) has undergone a massive development surge through the renovation of academic and training facilities and procurement of training/academic equipment under the flagship of the new Director, PMGEN GILBERTO DC CRUZ, who took the challenge in implementing the second component of the CPNP’s 9-Point Agenda Program Thrust which identifies the need for Facility Development. 

According to PCOL JACK L WANKY, in-charge in overseeing the projects, in a short span of time, the Academy has created various projects and improved its means to make the institution a better place for every cadet.
