Directorate for Human Resource and Doctrine Development History...
As the training arm of the Philippine National Police, the Directorate for Human Resource and Doctrine Development is tasked to help every PNP personnel to pursue a very respectable career. But before its activation, training and education in PC/INP underwent a number of transitional phases in terms of its functions and responsibilities, and command turnovers. But the most important factor which had the greatest effect on training and education is the enactment of Republic Act 6975, to which DHRDD came to be.
The “Khaki Days”
Prior the creation of DHRDD, Training and Operations of HPC/INP was under C3. After its deactivation pursuant to General Orders 10 dated April 1, 1988, OC8, which was patterned after GHQJ8 of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, assumed supervision, direction and control of matters pertaining to training and education of PC/INP. On December 13, 1990, then President Fidel V. Ramos signed into law Republic Act 6975 otherwise known as “An Act Establishing the Philippine National Police under a Reorganized Department of the Interior and Local Government, and for other Purposes”. Based on that Republic Act, Resolution 92-36 revised the organizational structure of the Philippine National Police and provided policies and guidelines in its implementation. The creation of the 10 Directorates in the National Headquarters was enacted; thus, the Directorate for Human Resource and Doctrine Development, more popularly known as DHRDD.
