Do toilet cleaners need a diploma?

By |


An insider at New Bilibid Prison (NBP) says one of the men brought in by retired Army Maj. Gen. Gaudencio Pangilinan was the source of the grenade that exploded inside the NBP compound.

Pangilinan was fired as director of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) several months ago after the kidnapping of a high-profile inmate, Rolito Go, inside the NBP complex.

My source, an employee of the NBP, said the grenade was sold by Pangilinan’s aide to an inmate.

“That’s the reason the grenade passed through tight security at NBP because the aide was not inspected since he was part of the organic personnel,” said the source.

My source, though, could not identify the Pangilinan aide.

*   *   *

Reached for comment, Pangilinan said it was “highly impossible.”

“Ganiyan talaga sa loob, sir, magaling gumawa ng istorya (Insiders are good at making up stories),” said the former BuCor director who, according to one of my sources in the Palace, was close to President Noy.

In fact, said the Palace source, Pangilinan was slated for a post at the Bureau of Customs if the kidnapping of Rolito Go did not happen.

A thorough investigation into the grenade-throwing incident at the NBP that wounded several inmates will point to Pangilinan, according to my NBP source.

*   *   *

It’s high time there was a changing of the guard at the NBP.

The revamp should be thorough.

The current guards should be replaced with new ones who don’t have relatives among employees of the national prisons.

Most of the guards, employees and career officials at the national prisons are related to one another.

This setup is highly irregular as the guards and other employees cover up for one another.

*   *   *

I had dinner Monday with the incoming chief of the Philippine National Police, Deputy Director General Alan Purisima, and our conversation touched on reforms he would undertake in one of the world’s most undisciplined police forces.

Purisima said he would propose the downgrade of the educational qualifications for a police candidate, from the present setup requiring a four-year college diploma to one asking for only a high school diploma.

I told the three-star police general that most new cops are undisciplined because they think the world owes them a living on account of their high education.

Purisima agreed. He said patrolling the streets and being proficient with a gun do not require a college degree.

I told Purisima that during my father’s time, the troopers of the defunct Philippine Constabulary were high school graduates and they were more disciplined and efficient.

I can’t understand why persons applying for a janitorial job need to be a college graduate.

Does sweeping floors and cleaning toilets need a college diploma?

    Apart from being the former aide of P-Noy when he was a young man, PNP Deputy Director General Purisima has no other claim to fame.

    When he was director of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), Purisima did nothing but stay at his air-conditioned office in Camp Bagong Diwa, Bicutan, Taguig City.

    Observers say that because Purisima spent most of his time in the office, the  crime incidence in Metro Manila tripled and abusive cops increased in number.

    Incidents of bank robberies, mugging, kidnapping and drug
    trafficking were particularly high in Metro Manila during Purisima’s
    term as NCRPO chief.

    It is not education but the psychological behaviour and moral value that make a person. Even if you get a doctorate degree but your moral value is prone to corruption then you are a useless person. The PNP should focus on the psychological examination and more moral value education to their new recruits. BI should also be done thoroughly and religiously. .Another thing should be done in recruitment is that no “Padrino” or quota system to politicians and high ranking PNP officials. One thing more is that here in MIndanao, you can buy your item or position for a sum of money . In the end, it’s the culture of corruption that cause scalawags in the rank and file of the PNP or “Pulis na Poloho”. .

    If indeed, this SOB former BUCOR Chief pangilinan has with him his bata from the military as employee of BUCOR when he assumed this position, the theory that the grenade was brought inside by this said employee is plausible because these are military ordnance that only military personnel can have access to.  Again this SOB pangilinan, has not shed this much hated custom and corrupt practice in the military establishment of the “bitbit system” wherein when a general or a senior officer is transferred to one assignment he has with him his “SIPSIP” loyal officer and soldier acolytes also transferred to this new post. This system courtesy of PMAyrs is a major contributor to the low morale of dedicated officers and soldiers in the field.

  • Manolo Villareal

    It’s quite absurd to downgrade the requirement for police officers.  In any organization, private or public, the morale of an employee lies on the ambition to be promoted.  How can you promote a high school graduate to be an inspector or superintendent? If a police officer stays only in the rank of a PO1, it is not unlikely that he will steal.  Demoralization is certain in this situation. The problem in our police human resource is in the recruitment, not on the college graduates who are even civil service eligible.  It is a common knowledge that area commanders are required to deliver a sum of money from the recruitment activity.  Those who fail in the examination can wiggle their way in through money deal.  From the start, these police officers were already corrupt and think they are powerful since they were able to get in even not passing the exams.  Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    It just shows that Mon Tulfo belongs to the old school (no offense intended).  I agree that high school graduates during the time of Tulfo’s father are more disciplined compared to today’s college graduates (college graduates are so rare at that time).  That is not anymore true today.  If graduates now are undisciplined, how much more for non graduates.

    Does sweeping floors and cleaning toilets need a college diploma?” What kind of News Column Tulfo is writing about. He is comparing qualification of the PC then and now and suddenly his next paragraph is questioning about qualification for a janitorial job. Does he mean police work is similar to a janitor job? Very confusing indeed.

  • joshmale2004

    “Do Toilet Cleaners Need A Diploma” So the column title says so. But the entire content is about the PC, PNP, about the police discipline then and now, police application requirement, a humor that the ex-NBP Head is a friend of the President, and his dinner with the incoming head of NBP. Only in the last paragraph he repeated the title of his column, and not even explained his position whether he is promoting high school graduates or college graduates for the position of Janitor. What kind of Column he is writing about. This column is a TRASH. Had I been the Editor In Chief of PCIJ, I will not allow this column to be published and return the article to Tulfo to correct the content.

    Mon, Purisima would not like the way you compared today’s cops to that of your father’s PC not because your argument was wrong but because PC was under the time of Marcos which Yellow Dogs like Purisima hate.  Alan was Pnoy’s bodyguard, a very loyal yellow guard.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VPSXDLCQEZGZDJSX32G7PYHNCI Noel

    I still prefer a cop with some college units not merely high school graduates.  Cops are civilians not soldiers.  Cops need some higher education so that they could communicate better verbally and in writing.  Cops used their brains more in investigation and operations while soldiers just shoot and shoot, kill and kill.  If being a cop only requires high school diploma, then more soldiers would want to be cops.

  • randyaltarejos

    I don’t think Mr. Tulfo’s suggestion to the incoming PNP chief is acceptable. I agree with you that a college degree is not needed, but for the fact that the PNP wanted to professionalize the police forces. At least, a police recruit must be a college level in order for him to properly understand police investigation, communication and writing, not to mention the instructions during 3 months training. The PNP should go back to 72 college units required to enter the police force

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VPSXDLCQEZGZDJSX32G7PYHNCI Noel

      For me, two years of college is suffice.  But certainly not high school graduate.

    Mr. Tulfo, do you think you don’t need a high educational attainment to do investigative and intelligence work?  Our battle now is more on battle of the brain as the criminals are getting smarter.  Unlike the time of your father where wars were won by brute force.  Besides, the educational system during the time of your father is a lot better compared today.  My grandmother became a teacher after graduating in elementary.  That’s how high our educational standard before.

    This article implies that education in the Philippines was excellent back then. But, to be fair, you can observe this decline (if ever the respective system has still space for decline) in education throughout the world, save for very few exceptions.

If you  remove only the top bossings, the lower ranks who actually do the dirty works will just tip of the new boss to the lucrative rackets.  Same with the police.  If they are caught sleeping or in cahoots with the criminals they should be fire out not transfer, freezer or suspended after a hearing of only one month or less. As to high school or college diploma is required does not matter coz it is Leadership that is severely lacking in the PNP and also in the AFP. PMA graduates should not be accepted in the police force as they became the problem not the solution dapat eh pang giyera lang sila sayang lang saksakan ng laking gastos sa mga iyan.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_H47CPJUE4QYKFUCKSUXK3LNBGI Allan

    my two cents’ worth on the educational requirements:
    1. when there was Philippine Constabulary, the quality of education was much (to infinity) better. my parents even told me that elementary graduates after the war were allowed to teach.
    2. the present college graduates couldn’t understand the process of preserving the pieces of evidence and most drugs cases get thrown. will this situation become better if the requirement were lowered to high school diploma?

    i wonder what mon’s educational attainment is but i’m sure he finished college, and i would like to pose these questions to him: do you really think that a high school graduate can ably handle the job of a policeman? are you, in your good conscience believe that we will be served well by the police if we lowered the educational requirement?

    the rash of crimes where the PO1s are involved points to one thing, the qualifications of these people are wanting. are they really college graduates? have they undergone psychological assessment? does the pnpa verify the documents submitted by the applicants? how many time have we heard of diplomas being manufactured at recto unieversity?

    • sacrebleau

      If highschool grads join the police force via apprenticeship and mentoring, they can get their special degree once qualified. The US military uses apprenticeship, especially specialized training. This system would be better rather than pluck someone from a pool of unrelated college degree holders.

      Perhaps after spending 3 to 4 years of being an “alalay” to the seniors, doing the street beat in a support capacity, and doing relevant office work – they can then take an exam to become a full-pledged cop.

      The PNP itself could be the college without taking away its core function.

      If level of education is to be blamed for undisciplined policemen then maybe it can also be applied to journalist or mediamen. since most of their time are spent on the street. Why mediamen spend four years in colleges or universities then stayed on the street and wait for the scoops.

      Sori mga pare ko but I think ingit lang kayo kay Idol Mon. Si Idol Mon ay may maraming chicks na magaganda at mga bata pa…   They all swear that he is a very good lover!  Some even thinks he owns a HAREM.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk. Dapat siguro ipasuri na ng Inquirer and utak ni Tulfo, baka nabagok nung tamaan ng mga upak ng grupo ni Raymart Santiago.

    pareng mon, ibig mo bang sabihin na ang sweldo nang mga high school grads na magiging mga pulis ay pareho na rin sa mga pulis na college grad? kaya nga mga college grads na ang ni recruit na mga pulis, isa sa mga dahilan ay ang sahod katumbas na nang college grad level. dagdag pa, di ba pina-professionalize na ang mga police? kung high school grads, hindi naman sa pag look down sa kanila, paano maging professional ang pagka police? siguro, kulang lang nang disciplinary measures ang ating mga pulis. ano kaya, ipa undergo sila nang marines training before graduating?

      Having employees with college degrees is not a requirement for an organization to be professional.  It’s in the character the employees project, how efficient an organization in its assigned tasks/missions and above all, how the emplyees treat a fellowman that make an organization “professional”.  Mga pulis ngayon oo puro professional sila.  Tignan mo kung sino sino ang nasasangkot sa kotongan, droga, carnapping, home invasion, kfr at anu anu pang crimen.

    Maybe this writer wanted to be a cop before he finished college.  Somehow his writings reflects a frustration in life, surely he hates highly educated and successful people and loves to destroy them.

    I would have wanted to write something on the kind of logic Manong Mon is espousing, but comments below say it all.
    Manong, are you so desperate because the holidays are coming and you need to have some dough more that you even find the gall to write virtually garbage..?
    Nauubos na lalo ang magtitiyagang magbayad sa u para propaganda, kase lagi kang bokya eh. Hala ikaw din…hehehe
