The Creation of PBDC

The commemorative inscription outside the PBDC main office


The Philippine Bomb Data Center (PBDC) was conceptualized based on the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Philippine-Australian Bilateral Counter-Terrorism which was signed by Federal Agent Frank Prendergast of Australian Federal Police (AFP) and Police Deputy Director General Reynaldo Velasco on April 20, 2004.

By virtue of NAPOLCOM resolution no. 2005-078 dated April 4, 2005, the PBDC activation was approved under the Directorate for Operations and on September 12, of that same year, the center was formally opened. The event was attended by then Australian Ambassador to the Philippines, Hon. Tony Hely. The PBDC was housed at the 2nd Floor of the formerly known Maritime Building, now being called as the PNPTS Dormitory.

Old and New Logo

On February 28, 2006, a new logo was approved by the Directorate for Research and Development to replace the previous old black seal.

Under NAPOLCOM Resolution No. 2009-547 dated October 15, 2009, the PBDC was absorbed by the PNP Intelligence Group as one of its operating units. The function of the Center was tasked to assist the latter in its counter-terrorism effort particularly on technical information of IEDs.

Meanwhile, under NAPOLCOM Resolution No. 2010-087 dated February 8 2010, the PBDC was transferred from the Intelligence Group to the Directorate for Intelligence so as to assist in building-up strategic intelligence on terrorism.
