"Ang PNP sa pamamagitan ng aming Chaplain Service ay patuloy sa pagbibigay importansya sa moral at spiritual capacity ng bawat pulis lalo ngayong mayroong pandemya, ito ay nakapailalim rin sa ating Intensified Cleanliness Policy. One of the core values of the PNP is "Makadiyos", which manifests our strong will to communicate with God and live by his teachings and to actualize His wisdom in the everyday fulfillment of our job as police officers and public servants." Eleazar said.
