PRO3 men ordered to remain apolitical

Lawmen in Central Luzon were directed by Police Regional Office 3 director Brig. Gen. Matthew Baccay  to remain apolitical and refrain from campaigning for or against any political aspirant in the May 9 elections.

Baccay said police officers should be careful in expressing their political leanings on social media as such would go against the organization’s non-partisan stance in politics. 

“I am once again reiterating to all police personnel to refrain from showing support for local or national political aspirants. While I am encouraging all police personnel to exercise their right to suffrage as citizens, they must remain apolitical in carrying out their mandate as members of the PNP,” Baccay stressed.
