CORPS RENEWS VOW AGAINST MALTREATMENT

by Cadet 2C John Mark J. Maandal

Silang, Cavite – The Cadet Corps Philippine National Police Academy (CCPNPA) once again denounced hazing and all forms of maltreatment during the Director’s time held last night, December 23, 2020, at the PNPA Mess Hall, Camp Gen. Mariano N. Castaneda, Silang, Cavite.

Spearheaded by PBGEN RHODERICK C ARMAMENTO, Acting Director, the Academy aims to reiterate the illegality of hazing and all kinds of maltreatment following the dismissal of cadets from the service who committed such acts. The RA 11053 or the “Anti Hazing Act of 2018” prohibits hazing in all forms in all organizations, education, and training institutions. To instill to the cadets the consequences of hazing and maltreatment in their career and lives, Audio Visual Presentations were presented regarding real cases where victims died and perpetrators faced imprisonment.

Members of Cadet Corps PNPA also signed Affidavits of Undertaking to further strengthen their commitment to end the violent culture of hazing and all forms of maltreatment.

The Director PNPA in his message said that to tie hazing and all forms of maltreatment to traditions in PNPA is out of context because long traditions here at PNPA only promotes brotherhood and in developing cadets to be better every day compared to their self yesterday. He highlighted that hazing and all forms of maltreatment are against the law. As future law enforcers before you implement the law, you must learn how to follow the law first-very basic.

PCOL ARCADIO A JAMORA JR, the Commandant of Cadets made it clear to all cadets present that all violations of the said law will be investigated and case/s will be filed in the proper court of law. All violators will undergo administrative proceedings and will be dismissed outright from the cadetship program.
