THE PHILIPPINE National Police offered five specialized training courses for the Special Action Force designed to further hone its tactical capability as police national maneuver force.

Opened simultaneously last Dec. 8 were the Special Action Force Commando Course Classes 120 and 121-2022, SAF Basic Airborne Course class 55-2022, Basic Mechanized Operation Course class 03-2022, SAF Sniper Course 14-2022, Intelligence Basic Course CLASS 59-2022, and Parachute Packing Course Class 01-2022.

The SAF training courses were officially opened by PNP Chief, Police General Rodolfo S Azurin Jr during a simple rite at Camp Bagong Diwa, Bicutan, Taguig City.

Azurin emphasized the PNP will continue to enhance the operational capability and efficiency of PNP-SAF in performing its mandate and functions.

He said the PNP elite unit enlivens its virtue to serve God, Country, and People with utmost excellence living up with the SAF motto “By Skill and Virtue, We Triumph.’

“We must be bolder, tougher, stronger and faster than the evil elements we are fighting against. We thus need men and women in the police force who will respond to the demands of the job and the expectations of the people we serve and protect,” Azurin said.
