This study was anchored on the idea of
implementing the “My Brother’s Keeper” Squad system
in the Philippine National Police as an Internal
Cleansing Strategy that aims to prevent police abuses
and to identify and weed out defiant PNP personnel,
particularly those who are engaged in illegal activities,
and impose corrective and punitive measures. It also
aims to instill in all PNP personnel a strong sense of
commitment, dedication, and responsibility to police
work geared towards a God-centered, service-oriented
and family-based life.

implementing the “My Brother’s Keeper” squad system
to the PNP Personnel of the Hagonoy Municipal Police
Station as a corrective strategy for erring PNP
personnel and the challenges encountered by the PNP
personnel to its implementation.
The study adopted an action research and also
used descriptive qualitative research designs to picture
the effects and challenges of the PNP Personnel in the
implementation of such internal cleansing strategy of
Upon the analysis of this study, there are two
themes developed in the implementation of “My
Brother’s Keeper” squad system in the Philippine
National Police: (1) God-centered; and (2) ServiceOriented.
The result of the study implied a clear indication
that the Squad system emphasizes values formation,
spiritual development and strengthening its
commitment of its personnel to their profession,
however, for every system implemented, it also have
challenges to face on. This study also identified some
challenges to improve: there are no sufficient time to
internalize, no proper venue to conduct the session and
hesitations to share that may lead to misunderstanding
or conflict of belief/faith.
