The Internal Affairs Service (IAS) of the Philippine National Police (PNP) held the Inauguration, Blessing, and Unveiling of Marker and Ceremonial Turn-Over of its new building at Camp BGen Rafael T Crame, Quezon City on Wednesday, March 3, 2021.

Department of Public Works and Highways SECRETARY MARK A. VILLAR, PNP Chief PGEN DEBOLD M. SINAS, and IAS Inspector General ATTY. ALFEGAR M. TRIAMBULO led the Ribbon Cutting, Unveiling of the Marker, Blessing, and Ceremonial Turn-Over of the IAS building at 9:00 A.M. 

The First Strategic Command Conference CY 2021 is later held from 1:00 P.M. at the IAS Conference Hall at the third floor of the new building. Among the attendees are the Inspector General, the Deputy Inspector General PMGEN GERRY T GALVAN, and NIAS Division Chiefs and Key Officers.

The new IAS building is a 120-million-peso project funded under the 2019 General Appropriations Act (GAA). Last November 15, 2019, Secretary Villar led its groundbreaking ceremony at Camp Crame. The building’s construction started during the term of former Chief, PNP, PGEN ARCHIE FRANCISCO GAMBOA (Ret.) and continued with the support of PGEN CAMILO PANCRATIUS CASCOLAN (Ret.), also former Chief, PNP, until its completion this year during the term of PGEN SINAS.

The four-story building is the first permanent office for IAS, which was one of the priorities of Inspector General ATTY. TRIAMBULO realized this year through the generosity of DPWH. The Service previously held offices at the Multi-Purpose Center, the former Deh-Ta restaurant, and the PNP Training Service before being transferred to the new building, the third time it moved since 2016.

IAS is the nation’s lead agency in the campaign against all forms of misconduct in the PNP. Since its creation in 1998, the Service, as a recommendatory body, has conducted independent and impartial investigations concerning the police force. PNP IAS
