The Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office is expected to get neophyte personnel who will be assigned to two provincial mobile force companies based in Bacolod City and Hinigaran town.

NOCPPO said the new personnel will come from the ranks of 314 trainees, who completed last Oct. 20 their 60-day Basic Internal Security Operations Course on counter-insurgency held at a training camp in Sara, Iloilo.

BISOC is a mandatory training program for all police personnel. It covers basic mindset and instinct, indoctrination, discipline and character, individual and unit knowledge that they will apply in combat operations against insurgents.

Police Lt. Col. Joem Malong, spokesperson of the Police Regional Office 6, said the trainees  will be returned to the  Regional Personnel Holding Unit, while awaiting deployment orders  to the Regional Mobile Force Battalion and the different PMFC units.

Brig. Gen. Rene Pamuspusan, Western Visayas  regional police director, said  that the BISOC training equips the new cops with the right knowledge, attitude, skills, and values that will make them more capable and qualified to be assigned in the mobile forces of the PNP whose primary function is to deal with  internal security concerns.

The  1st PMFC based in Bacolod City and the 2nd PMFC unit Hinigaran are under the supervision of the NOCPPO. GPB
