A dirtyand faded one, on the other hand, decreases the respect people have for thepolice for it loses their positive symbolic value,” Osia added. “So, we shouldbe at all times disciplined and snappy in wearing our uniforms.”  Last year, thePNP planned to impose stricter measures in the sale of police uniforms so thatpolice impersonators “won’t get hold of them.” Unauthorizedwearing of police or military uniforms is penalized under Republic Act 493,which prohibits civilians from wearing, using, manufacturing, and sellingmilitary uniforms, insignia, medals, and badges prescribed only for soldiersand policemen.(With a report from NoelCabobos/RadyoTodoAklan/PN) “We believe thatwith this program, all police personnel will be forced to make use of theirclothing allowance to buy new ones. There is really no reason for us not tochange our old and worn-out uniforms,” Osia said, adding that the confiscateduniforms will be shredded and buried per the order of the police nationalheadquarters.center_img Osia said thecampaign was part of the “internal cleansing program” of the PNP in the entireregion under the directive of Police Regional director Major General RenePamuspusan.   Every threeyears, all police officers are given P14,000 each termed as ReplacementClothing Allowance to buy their new sets of uniforms.    Colonel EsmeraldoOsia Jr., director of the Police Provincial Office here, led the overallappearance and checking of uniforms of police personnel yesterday.
