ZSPPO implements PGS

By Gideon C. Corgue

PAGADIAN CITY – The Zamboanga del Sur Police Provincial Office (ZSPPO) recently adopted the Performance Governance System (PGS) as a strategy to achieve its vision of becoming a highly capable, effective and credible police service by 2030.

In his message during the oath-taking of the officers and members of the ZSPPO Provincial Advisory Council held here recently, Superintendent James Turbela, deputy provincial director for administration said the PGS, otherwise known as the “PNP Transformation Roadmap 2030,” envisions that “the PNP will become a highly capable, effective and credible police service in partnership with a responsive community for the attainment of a safer place to live, work, and do business.”

With the new program, Turbela said, the ZSPPO is mandated to pass the four stages, namely:  initiation, compliance, proficiency, and institutionalization stage.

“The ZSPPO has passed the first stage—the initiation stage - and is now coping to pass the other three stages,” Turbela announced.

The initiation stage is the formation of technical working group and provincial advisory council, formulation of strategy map and governance scorecards.

“The command is now on its second stage, the compliance stage,” Turbela disclosed adding, ”what we are doing now is accomplishing the compliance stage which is the organization and formalization of PAC.”

Meanwhile, Inspector Joel Galeriana, chief of Dashboard Management and Alignment Police Commission Office said the PGS is a participatory process wherein every individual or objectives must be accomplished. “It is a program of governance that every member of the Philippine National Police (PNP) must get involved,” he added.

Galeriana said the PGS is a new program to them since they are not used to it.

“Before a PNP member used to work for his own benefit but with the PGS, we work as an institution to achieve our goals and objectives,” Galeriana added.

Turbela expressed optimism that the command will successfully complete the four stages with the help of PAC members and other stakeholders adding that a validation team from PNP central office is slated to visit the command on July to validate the performance of ZSPPO.
