CAMP OLIVAS, City of San Fernando, Pampanga- -- 3,617 newly-promoted PNP personnel of Police Regional Office 3, 18 of whom are Police Commissioned Officers including 331 lateral entrants and 3,268 are police non-commissioned officers took their oath at the PRO3 Parade Ground, Camp Julian Olivas, City of San Fernando, Pampanga  earlier this morning (March  25). 
The oath-taking and mass pinning of the newly promoted Police Commissioned Officers including lateral entrants and Police Non-Commissioned Officers was administered by PRO3 Regional Director PCSUPT JOEL NAPOLEON M CORONEL and was witnessed and participated in by the families and relatives of the promotees.
 “To both our police commissioned officers and promotees, you are now in the better position to serve our communities, hindi nangangahulugang mga opisyal na kayo at tumaas na ang inyong mga ranggo ay kayo na ang paglilingkuran ng ating mga mamamayan, the more that you should be servants of the people. I expect you all to transform into positive actions because the added authority and responsibility donned on your shoulders today is founded on the PNP’s philosophy and core values. Ito ay isapuso ninyo: Rank does not confer privilege or give you power. Rank imposes great responsibility on you which the organization and the people are expecting from all of you. Maglingkod kayo ng tapat at taos-puso sa sambayanang Pilipino.,” PCSUPT CORONEL said in his message.
