Hon. Rodel Batocabe of Ako Bicol Partylist had the privilege of being the Guest of Honor and Speaker for the Recognition Rites of PSOCC ITG Class 2015-49 Class Mapitagan, held at the Philippine Public Safety College of the National Training Institute in Calamba City, Laguna
Rep. Batocabe is a staunch advocate for maximising the scholarship grants extended to the family members of personnel of the Philippine National Police (PNP), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP). He supports the proposed amendments to RA 6963: An Act Granting Special Financial Assistance And Benefits To The Family Or Beneficiary Of Any Police Or Military Personnel Or Fireman Killed Or Permanently Incapacitated While In The Performance Of His Duty Or By Reason Of His Office Or Position, which will enable the extension of scholarship grants to one family member of active active personnel rendering at least two years of service.
He also co-authored House Bill 971, which shall provide for additional insurance coverage and benefits for all members of the Philippine National Police who are killed, wounded or injured in the line of duty. Once enacted, this bill shall help ensure additional financial assistance for the bereaved family of the brave men and women of PNP who laid down their lives for their duty as officers of the law. In line with this cause, he also advocated for an increase in the special group term insurance coverage for members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police.
He also supports strengthening the Philippine Public Safety College System, as the premier educational institution for training, human resource development and continuing education of all police, fire and jail personnel.
