‘i-Serbis’ app aims to coax gun owners to get licenses

The Philippine National Police (PNP) has launched a new mobile application to provide information about the various frontline services of the police force, including instructions for securing police clearances and gun licenses.

Director General Ronald dela Rosa, PNP chief, said the i-Serbis app provides details on all the processes and documentary requirements such as securing police clearance and in gun licensing before actually proceeding to police camps.

Dela Rosa said this would help speed up transactions as the public can avoid congesting the police offices unprepared.

He also envisions the i-Serbis to help encourage gun owners to apply for or renew their gun licenses. “I am optimistic that through this system, gun owners would be encouraged to apply for the License to Owns and Possess Firearms and firearms registration.”

Hector Rodriguez, president of the Association of Firearms and Ammunition Dealers of the Philippines (AFAD), said they will help in promoting i-Serbis.

“AFAD will post the i-Serbis app among the PNP services that will be highlighted in our 24th Defense and Sporting and Arms Show (DSAS)” that will be held on November 10–14 at the SM Megamall, Rodriguez said.

“We believe that this will boost our campaign for responsible gun ownership in the country,” he added.
