Don’t pressure your husbands into buying you expensive things. Pressure them to become good policemen.

This was the appeal of Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rose to wives of cops amid the ongoing cleansing efforts in the police departments. He said this materialistic attitude pressures policemen into resorting to corruption so they can buy expensive things for their partners.

Instead, Dela Rosa said the wives should compel their husbands to become good policemen they can be proud of.

During the PNP’s mass wedding for 21 PNP personnel and their spouses at Camp Crame, Dela Rosa said that “one of the major causes” of corruption among cops is their materialistic wives.
