Hontiveros ‘happy’ to support Bato’s bill on hiring more women police officers
More women cops please.
Senator Risa Hontiveros is “happy” to back a measure allowing the hiring of more women police officers in the country.
Senate Bill No. 1562 seeking to increase the recruitment quota of women in the Philippine National Police (PNP) to 20 percent from 10 percent was filed by Senator Ronald dela Rosa.
“I am particularly happy to support Sen dela Rosa’s bill increasing gender quotas in the Philippine National Police,” Hontiveros wrote on Facebook.
Hontiveros said the presence of more women cops would help promote the culture of human rights protection in the police force.
“Women in spaces & spheres of law enforcement create a counterculture of human rights, restorative justice & healing. The PNP can always do with more of these,” she said.
