Directorate for Research and Development

Research is a very broad human activity embracing various aspects of man’s existence. It is practically a “conception resurrection” concept that deals with all the branches of knowledge. Research work, however, may be limited depending upon the scope of the study being conducted. In law and justice, a research may be undertaken to redefine police role as some legal adjustments are made to adapt to social change. In law enforcement, research may be done to resolve ethical problems within police agencies. The most common problem areas being explored are in the organizational frontiers, behavioral patterns, processes and procedures and value system.

Republic Act 6975 establishes the Philippine National Police under a reorganized Department of the Interior and Local Government. Section 25, Chapter III thereof provides for its organization. Section 30, Rule VII of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the Act, provides that “the Chief of the PNP shall, within sixty (60) days from the effectivity of the Act and in accordance with the broad guidelines set forth therein, recommend the organizational structure and staffing pattern of the PNP to the National Police Commission”.
