The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-Tarlac Extension Office has trained about 100 police trainees on investor protection in partnership with Regional Training Center 3 (RTC 3) under the SEC’s Communication, Advocacy, and Network program.
According to SEC Tarlac Director Richard Laus, the seminar seeks to educate and empower the trainees on the trends on investment crimes.
“This activity aims to further increase the awareness and knowledge of the newly recruited police officers on illegal investment activities and filing of complaints to track down and prosecute those behind such schemes,” Laus said in a Punto Central Luzon report.
Laus, Securities Specialist Charito Santiago, and Securities Counsel Theresa Reotutar served as resource speakers on the second batch of police trainees to undergo the Seminar on Investment Scams and Filing Cases.
For his part, RTC 3 Chief Police Colonel Miguel Guzman thanked the commission for its efforts in informing the future law enforcers on the matter.
“We express our sincerest appreciation to SEC Tarlac for its enduring commitment to excellence and exceptional support to the professional development of the police trainees,” Guzman said.
