Philippine Public Safety College  

The promulgation of Republic Act 6975, otherwise known as the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Act of 1990, operationalized and initiated the call for a tangible reform in the country's public safety services particularly for the uniformed bureaus under DILG.

   The same Act factually complied with the constitutional mandate for a unified single national police force, which is civilian in character under the administration of the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM). Likewise, the same law upgraded the fire and jail services as new and separate bureaus under the DILG stewardship.

National Police Commission  

In 1966, Congress enacted Republic Act 4864 otherwise known as the Police Act of 1966 to provide the foundation for the much needed police reforms in the country. It created the POLICE COMMISSION (Polcom) “to achieve and attain a higher degree of efficiency in the organization, administration and operation of local police agencies; and to place the local police service on a professional level.”

Since 1966, the Commission had undergone changes in its organizational structure. It was reorganized in 1972 as the National Police Commission (Napolcom). Originally under the Office of the President, it was transferred to the Ministry of National Defense in 1975 by virtue of Presidential Decree 765, known as the Police Integration Law. This Decree also established the Integrated National Police (INP) with the Philippine Constabulary (PC) as the nucleus. Ten (10) years later in 1985, it was returned to the Office of the President pursuant to Executive Order No. 1040. In 1989, Executive Order No. 379 placed the INP directly under the “ command, supervision and control of the President.”
