The hierarchy of the Philippine National Police hopes that cases of police scalawags will lessen following the increase in their salary.
According to Police C/Supt. Joselito Vera Cruz, executive officer of the Directorate for Comptrollership, the PNP will refrain from committing illegal activities because they know that their loses will be big.
Vera Cruz said that policement will be removed from service if they are proven to be involved in corrupt practices.
The police official further added that it will be difficult to look for a company that will give a Php 30,000 basic pay.
About 76,000 police officers 1 will benefit the most in the pay hike since President Rodrigo Duterte promised a 100% in their basic pay.
