Congress commends ABS-CBN's FPJ's Ang Probinsyano for promoting crime awareness and prevention

ABS-CBN Corp. Comm. September 21,2016 12:23 PM

The House of Representatives has commended ABS-CBN primetime series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” for its efforts to promote crime awareness and prevention among viewers and endorsed Coco Martin as “Celebrity Advocate for a Drug-Free Philippines.”

Rep. Ace Barbers, Chairman of House Committee on Dangerous Drugs, recently filed House Resolution No. 358 last September 14 commending the producers, cast, and crew of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” for courageously presenting relevant and controversial issues like corruption, medical malpractice, narco politics, ninja cops, sex trade, manufacture of dangerous drugs, drug couriers, and the sale of party drugs.

“'FPJ's Ang Probinsyano' exposes the network of drug syndicates including the scalawags in uniform while also revealing the struggles of the white knights of law enforcement units,” said Barbers in the House resolution.

According to Rep. Barbers, the show tackles issues like homicide, illegal recruitment, extortion, robbery, kidnapping, carnapping, cybercrime, guns for hire, riding in tandem, fraud, child abuse, human trafficking, terrorism, and drug trafficking.

He also said the program promotes awareness of the modus operandi of syndicates in recruiting the pawns or abducting their next victim using their infomercial segment where crimes, penalties, and crime prevention are discussed by Coco.

"The TV series highlights the role of the family and the community, particularly the barangay official in helping law enforcements identify and apprehend the criminal elements," he said.

Coco was also commended for his commitment and dedication in his craft by taking on different roles, including portrayal of lead character SPO2 Ricardo Dalisay, his twin brother Ador De Leon, and the female undercover agent Paloma.

"FPJ's Ang Probinsyano," which has been on air for a year now, has received praises for teaching viewers about the consequences of crimes and imparting life lessons about family and patriotism. It revolves around the life and struggle of Cardo while performing his duty as a member of the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group.

The program is also the most watched program in the country, based on the national TV ratings of Kantar Media covering urban and rural homes.  In August, the program averaged 41.2% and topped all programs nationwide.  It has also received several awards from various award-giving bodies, including Gawad Tanglaw, Anak TV Awards, and Paragala Awards.
