CASCOLAN EYES 8-HOUR DUTY FOR COPS
The Philippine National Police is planning to implement an eight-hour shift from the current 12 hours to give PNP personnel enough time to rest and have more quality time with their families.
PNP chief Gen. Camilo Cascolan said the reduced work hours would significantly impact the health and well-being of the 209,000-strong police force.
Cascolan said to promote productivity, the daily duties of police officers should be reduced to eight hours.
“The best way for them to perform is to have a good schedule, especially when it comes to beat patrols,” Cascolan said.
He said the eight-hour shift could be applied in the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), which has over 27,000 personnel.
