• PNP to launch rights app for police, civilians


    The Philippine National Police (PNP) will launch a human rights mobile application for civilians and policemen engaged in the operations against criminality, illegal drugs and corruption. Chief Supt. Dionardo Carlos, PNP spokesman, said the launching of the application – “Know Your Rights” – is in line with the kick-off ceremony of PNP’s celebration of National Human Rights Consciousness Week. Chief Supt. Dennis Siervo, chief of the PNP Human Rights Affairs Office (HRAO), explained that the mobile application can be downloaded from Google Play Store by Android mobile phone users. “Through the ‘Know Your Rights’ mobile application, all Human Rights Advisories and Policies crafted by the PNP, including the contents of the New Miranda Warning Pocket Card with Anti-Torture Reminders, can be downloaded or stored in android smart phones,” Siervo said in a statement. Once downloaded it can be accessed anytime even without internet connectivity, Siervo added.
