Eighty-five motorcycle riders successfully completed the Executive Motorcycle Riding Course (EMRC) of the Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group (PNP HPG) on December 6, 2022. The Closing Ceremonies were held in Camp BGen Rafael T Crame in Quezon City.
Forty graduates from Class 02-2022 “Next Gen” and 45 graduates from Class 03-2022 “Maragtas,” finished the 16-day Program of Instructions of EMRC which commenced on October 5, 2022.
PNP Chief General Rodolfo S. Azurin, Jr. underscored the importance of the Executive Motorcycle Riding Course (EMRC) as instrumental in strengthening police mobility, and making all police offices to be adequately prepared in responding to incidents and calls for police assistance attuned with the PNP’s renewed focus on mobile patrolling and police presence in our communities.
The Certificates of Completion were presented to the graduates by the PNP Chief himself, assisted by Attorney Beatrice Aurora A. Vega-Cancio, Commissioner, National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM); Ariel Caculitan, Undersecretary, Presidential Adviser on Military Affairs; Police Brigadier General Clifford Gairanod, Director PNP-HPG; together with other members of the PNP Command Group.
Michael Cancio received the Certificates on behalf of Class 02-2022, while PCol Romeo Macapaz accepted the Certificates for Class-03-2022.
“Aside from the skills enhancement, I am confident that this course fostered opportunities to build new and productive relations, as well as camaraderie on our law enforcement sector participants and your civilian classmates, all for the love of riding big bikes”, PGen Azurin said.
The Top Cop also reiterated that the said training serves as an opportunity to improve and enhance the skills of every police personnel, and so, he urges everybody, particularly the HPG personnel, to properly utilize the special and instinctive skills they acquired from EMRC as they respond to any incident or in high-speed police responses.
“May you utilize all the learning and skills in this course to nurture greater responsiveness on road and traffic concerns, and in ensuring the safety and security of the public to walk the streets unharmed and deter criminals inclined for having the opportunity of carrying out their criminal intentions,” PGen Azurin added.
