Services of Project: Legal Advice 24/7
The operation center takes pride and lives-up to its slogan:
“Need Legal Advice? Text kayo... kami na ang tatawag sa inyo...”
The reason of our existence:
Through our hotline numbers, messengers, Skype, e-mail, facebook and webpage our office entertains legal inquiries pertaining to police operations and other work-related questions of our PNP personnel nationwide.
Flow of the services. – Using our hotline numbers, a PNP member will send a text message to our office. His request for legal advice will be received by the duty PNCO who will make a call to the texter to determine if he is indeed a member of the PNP because our services are supposedly for PNP members only. If the identity of the texter is ascertained to be a PNP member, the lawyer on duty will answer the query. After rendering an advice, the supervisor and the duty PNCO will document the rendering of services. Please see the diagram below:
Our Office does not simply wait for our personnel in the field to ask queries. We have other services as follows:
