THE PHILIPPINE National Police Academy signed a partnership agreement with the Philippine Coast Guard on cooperative education and training programs.

The deal aims to improve education and training, develop leadership and managerial skills, strengthen friendship and understanding and promote greater cultural awareness among PNPA cadets, coast guard officers, faculty members, instructors and training staff.

The partnership will pave the way for the conduct of an immersion program to allow participants to imbibe the training environment and culture of the host institution via sports and physical development activities that instill values such as sportsmanship, teamwork, camaraderie and friendly competition; joint exercises, such as disaster and emergency response to foster teamwork and interoperability and exchange instructors program, trainings, seminars, and workshops to improve the knowledge and skills of participants.

Commodore Eustacio Nimrod Palomero Enriquez Jr., commander of the Philippine Coast Guard Education, Training, and Doctrine Command, paid a visit to the PNPA on December 5, 2022.

“We recognize the value of this partnership with the country’s premier police higher education institution that primarily produces the younger breed of officers in the tri-bureaus, as this is consistent with our pursuit of improving our interoperability with other law enforcement agencies,” he said.

PNPA Director PBGEN Eric Noble thanked the Philippine Coast Guard.

“We especially look forward to that invaluable exchange of knowledge and information from subject matter experts and such other groundbreaking possibilities that would benefit our cadets the most,” he said.
