Seldom noticed, but leaving a very deep and often lasting positive impression that the AFP is changing for the better, is the IPSP: Bayanihan. This aims at winning the peace by winning hearts and minds of people in communities where the AFP has operations. This is the positive community outreach program, by which AFP units work with local government units and civil society organizations in promoting several development projects aimed at creating more livelihood opportunities in the area. The many positive testimonies that have been pouring into AFP General Headquarters represent many different points of light, which brightens the governance pathway of the AFP as it earns the trust and even the respect (if not the love, as yet) of many more people in many local areas throughout the archipelago. For instance, the unsolicited comments of people who have been working with AFP disaster response teams are truly heart-warming; moreover, these comments are no longer “few and far between”. The external auditors that have been sent out to the field to check on external stakeholder comments on their relationship with AFP units have attested to the positive turn in attitudes towards, and high regard, for the AFP on the part of ordinary people, out there in the periphery.

It may be too soon to declare success in this regard, but the positive feedback from the observance of the Bayanihan doctrine of the AFP should be used as fodder in the internal communications mill—aimed at internal stakeholders primarily—that the OSSSM has been running at full throttle.

Of late, the AFP has decided that it is high time for it to conduct a survey among its internal stakeholders on  their perception of whatever accomplishments have been attained by the AFP TR. It should then move ahead and find out through a survey on how the public perceives the AFP four years after it started its transformation journey; moreover, this survey has to be undertaken as regularly as every year so that over time, a trend can be established, and an objective measure would tell whether the AFP is well on its way to attaining its vision, which includes being a “source of national pride”.
