Local Police Stations Get Bigger Share for Operations Under New 15:85 PNP Fund Scheme October 11, 2010   Posted By: Administrator

 

Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse M. Robredo today said that Philippine National Police provincial and field offices all over the country will now have more funds to support their operational expenses as the PNP already has started to allocate funds to local police stations based on a “15:85” fund distribution scheme.

Robredo said the 15:85 distribution ratio refers to the allocation of 15% of net distributable funds for the Police Regional Offices (PROs) and 85% to field units or to the Police Provincial Offices (PPOs) and police stations.

Under this modified fund scheme, the Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE) funds from the Regional Police Headquarters are simultaneously distributed to PPOs and local police stations, he said.

The MOOE funds that are now automatically transferred to police stations include the NAPOLCOM-directed police activities or NDPA, travel, repair or vehicles, repair of facilities and Gender and Development Funds.

“This will significantly increase the monthly operating fund of local police stations and enable them to more effectively prevent crimes and maintain peace and order in the communities,” the DILG Secretary said.

He also said that this new scheme brought about a marked improvement of an average of 28% in the fund allocation per policeman manning the police station, or from P740.00 in July this year to P950.00 for the month of September.

At the same time, Robredo also directed the posting of the details of the PNP fund distribution per region in the DILG website to ensure transparency and to inform police and field stations as well as the public about this new policy.

Earlier, the DILG Chief directed PNP chief, Director General Raul Bacalzo to reform and maximize the allowable funds for distribution to local police stations. xxx
