The PNP Operational Procedures (POP) Manual provides guidance regarding the Philippine National Police’s policy and procedures for its personnel, especially those in the field, which must be strictly adhered to in all aspects of police work.
This 2010 Edition of the POP Manual contains more comprehensive and in-depth procedures to specifically address in detail various modes of action every police officer shall observe in the performance of the general law enforcement function and basic police duties as well as the rules and methods to be observed in special police intervention operation. The demands of public safety service involve a wide range of issues and considerations and to be effective, PNP officers will have to rely not only on this manual but also upon their training and experience.
The revision of the POP Manual is also in consonance with our ongoing Transformation Program as we are improving one of the Key Result Areas, on PNP Operations, which involves reforms in the operating rules and procedures in police operations, providing the police units the appropriate work tools and strengthening crime research to support more effective crime management operations.
The PNP officers’ value to the citizens and to the organization will be gauged not only by compliance with the procedures contained in this Manual, but also by demonstrations of good judgment, zeal and performance under widely variant conditions. It is therefore incumbent upon all officers to familiarize themselves with the contents of this PNP Operational Procedures Manual so that they may know their duties and perform them properly.
