Hahaha. the PCG must be drooling in a couple of months.

Police to acquire 6 patrol boats from US

THE United States will deliver in two months six of the 30 patrol boats it is donating to the National Police Maritime Group, and they’ll be used to guard Palawan’s coastline against smugglers and terrorists, an official said yesterday.

The rest of the patrol boats would be delivered in five years and they cost $2 million each or a total of $60 million, Maritime Group head Angelo Sunglao said.

He said a repair facility would be set up to maintain the boats, people would be trained to man them, and spare parts would be provided to keep them running.

“This project is at no cost to the Philippine government since it is in the form of aid. We are lucky since this program is a priority project of the US government,” Sunglao said.

The boats to be delivered were the same ones being used by the US Coast Guard, were fully armed and sailed at a speed of over 20 knots, he said.

“Most of the boats will be used to patrol the open seas in Mindanao, where smuggling and piracy are rampant,” Sunglao said.

Meanwhile, the commander of the US Pacific Fleet, the world’s largest, paid a courtesy call at the Armed Forces’ headquarters in Quezon City yesterday and also visited US Ambassador Kristie Kenney at the US Embassy in Manila.

Adm. Robert Willard has been in the country since Wednesday, and he is scheduled to leave today after a short visit to the Navy headquarters in Manila.

The US Pacific Fleet comprises 180 ships, 1,500 aircraft and a workforce of 160,000 men and women. Jaime Pilapil

MARIG gets much-needed boost

By: Alfred P. Dalizon , Journal

THE Philippine National Police is fast-tracking efforts to fully modernize its 1,400-strong Maritime Group so it can better respond to disasters.

“Unknown to the public, PNP chief General (Avelino) Razon has been silently pushing for the full modernization of the Maritime Group way back, long before the M/V Princess of the Stars tragedy,” Chief Supt. Angelo H. Sunglao said.

Sunglao said 20 MARIG divers are involved in the search, rescue and retrieval operations in Romblon.

“Let me credit Gen. Razon for his full support to the Maritime Group. In fact, he really believed me when I told him that we should invest more in our maritime unit, the Philippines being an archipelagic country,” he said.

Sunglao said Razon made sure that MARIG has the capability to respond to disasters swiftly and more efficiently. Aside from its rescue, relief and retrieval operations, MARIG commandos are also on stand-by alert and ready to respond to any criminal and terrorist activities including piracy, smuggling and sea jacking.

“Matagal nang nakaligtaan ang Maritime Group pero nakita ni Gen. Razon ang kahalagahan ng aming unit. Sa totoo lang, napakaraming magagaling na tao sa Maritime Group pero kulang talaga ang aming capabilities,” he said.

Last week, 100 new MARIG recruits finished months of grueling training and were officially commissioned into the unit. Sunglao said Razon saw to it that they will have the additional quota to reinforce the unit’s manpower.

The MARIG is waiting for the arrival of six brandnew 18-meter long rigid inflatable boats donated by the United States to reinforce the unit’s rescue and relief operations.

“The inflatable boats are part of the multi-million dollar package offered by the American government to help reinforce the Maritime Group. They will also begin constructing a maritime police building in a 2,000-square meter land in Honda Bay in Palawan,” Sunglao said.

Plans are also under way to procure additional equipment including patrol boats, rescue vessels, complete diving gears and even underwater cameras for his unit.

Out of the 34 patrol boats procured by the MARIG in 1995, only seven can be considered fully operational or ‘‘ready at sea.’’ Ten are already ‘‘beyond economical repair‘’ while the rest are’ ‘not ready at sea.’’

Razon said they are harmonizing all development and modernization plans that will rationalize programs to improve the PNP in the next five years.

“We want to develop a strategic policy that will address all perceived dysfunctions in the human resource management in the PNP. At the same time, all our efforts to further improve the PNP through equipment upgrade, capacity building, and reforms in systems and procedures, must be synchronized to maximize utilization of resources,” Razon said.

Reforming police stations is on top of the PNP’s priority under its modernization and development plans. Other vital projects include the improvement of the Special Action Force and the Maritime Group, and Regional and Provincial Mobile Groups; modernization of National Support Units; and development of the Directorial Staff and other offices of special concerns.

(The PNP leadership is asking victims of criminality and rogue officers to send their complaints through the following: Isumbong Mo Kay Tsip through 0917-8475757, the Anti-Kotong Text 0927-5151515; PNP TXT 2920, DILG Patrol 117 or e-mail at tsip1@pnp.gov.ph or tsip@pnp.gov.ph).

SPECIAL BOAT UNIT (SBU)

The United States Department of State’s International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Division (DOS-ILEA) and the Department of Justice’s International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (DOJ-ICITAP) five-year maritime law enforcement development program will provide a number of Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) to be used by the Philippine National Police, Maritime Group Special Boat Unit (MG-SBU) to support the Government’s Maritime Security Strategy in all ports facilities and navigate waters of the country.

Mission Statement

To provide fast, highly mobile seaborne law enforcement response to secure the highly permeable navigable waters, ports, ferry terminals and coastal areas against all forms of criminal activities, including narcotics trafficking, local and international terrorist threats, commercial vessel piracy, illicit cargo, illegal fishing activities, poaching and human trafficking.”

Maritime Group Boosts Sea Disaster Probe Capability

The Maritime Group of the Philippine National Police will soon take active role in the investigation of sea disasters using scientific technique and modern equipment to avoid whitewash and pinpoint those responsible.

MG Director Chief Superintendent Angelo H Sunglao said there were completing specialized training programs with the help of the United States' Department of State and the Department of Justice's International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program. One of the major components of the program was the underwater forensic investigation.

Sunglao said the group's capability upgrade has been going on even before the sinking of M/V Princess of the Stars off the coast of Sibuyan, Romblon.

"This is part of holistic modernization program for the Maritime Group that I presented to the PNP leadership and which has the full backing of PNP Chief Director General Avelino I Razon."

The United States, Sunglao said, is committed to train MG's 16 regional maritime offices to handle underwater forensic investigation and to provide them with necessary equipment.

"The training is already ongoing and the equipment to be provided is really high tech and can help us retrieve and preserve vital evidence from underwater so they can be used in court or by any investigative body."

"In a way, MG aims to be the 'SOCO' (Scene of the Crime Office) when it comes to maritime incidents," Sungalo explained.

"Tapos na yung panahon na kapag sumisid ang isang diver, ang akala niya talaba ang hahanapin niya sa lumubog na barko at hindi ebidensiya."

He said in past investigations of sea disasters, authorities were hampered by the country's lack of technical expertise on underwater investigation.

"Hopefully, the method we are developing would help investigators determine the cause of a vessel's sinking and more importantly, pinpoint those responsible for the disaster," Sungalo said.

Aside from underwater investigation, Sunglao said the group is also ready to launch another elite unit, the Special Boat Unit (SBU), which would be at the forefront of the PNP's campaign against terrorism, illegal fishing, anti-smuggling (including human smuggling) in the high seas.

The SBU would consist of patrol vessels similar to those used by the United States Coast guard complete with heavy machie guns and automatic grenade launchers.

It would be manned by highly trained personnel whose first crew of 100 had just completed their training at the Calabarzon-Philippine National Training Institute in Camp Vicente Lim, Laguna.

The first SBU would be stationed in Palawan, while other stations are also being eyed in Tawi-tawi, Zamboanga and Davao.

Sunglao said the PNP expects the delivery of the first six rigid buoyant boats (inflatable) from the United States in September.

"As soon as we have the unit commissioned, we expect to prevent rampant cases of illegal fishing and poaching and further entry into the country of illicit and dangerous cargos such as drugs and weapons in our so-called 'Southern backdoor," Sunglao said.
