Gen. Marbil also called on his men to prepare to secure their families first before giving quality public service. “Tag-ulan na kaya let’s all prepare our families for any eventuality. Yung pag pumunta tayo sa field, hindi tayo nag-aalala sa ating pamilya while be give quality public service,” the top cop reminded his men.

The PNP chief explained that the Pamilya ng Pulis Family Day will further foster camaraderie, bolster the support network, and enhance the overall welfare of PNP personnel and their families nationwide.
