MANILA, Philippines — The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) is now monitoring the activities of 70 policemen involved in illegal activities.

NCRPO PDir. Oscar Albayalde said they have been receiving complaints against the 70 police officers.

“Yung isa ngang PO1 na nakapasok ay may pending criminal case tapos kilala pa siya na nagtutulak at kilala din na gumagamit ng shabu,” said the NCPO chief.

(A PO1 on the list has a pending criminal case and is also a known drug pusher and user of shabu.)

Albayalde also said that police personnel who are involved in illegal activities need to be dismissed from the service.

“May cases of extortion, kidnap for ransom. May kung ano ano pang illegal activity especially yung mga involved sa drugs,” said the police chief.

(Those with cases of extortion, kidnap for ransom and other illegal activities, especially the ones involved in drugs.)

The said police officers have ranks ranging from PO1 to SPO1 and are from the Manila Police District (MPD), Northern Police District (NPD) and Quezon City Police District (QCPD).

The NCRPO will also investigate the policeman who shot a 13-year-old boy in Tondo last Friday night in front of Vitas Slaughterhouse. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines —Like in the last two years, the Philippine National Police (PNP) will skip the gun-muzzle sealing activity for this holiday season.

According to PNP Director General Oscar Albayalde, this is to show that policemen are disciplined and can be trusted not to illegally discharge their service firearms during the holiday revelry.

“Medyo napapahiya tayo kapag nakakakita sila ng pulis na may masking tape sa dulo. Tinatawanan tayo kung minsan kung bakit kailangan nating i-masking tape ang baril when in fact, kung gusto mong iputok yun, pwede mo namang tanggalin yung masking tape,” said the PNP chief.

Albayalde said they are also eyeing to achieve zero case of indiscriminate firing involving policemen like last year.

The PNP chief warned that cops will be facing appropriate charges and may even be dismissed from service if they illegally discharge their service firearms during the celebration.

Their immediate superior will also be sanctioned.

“We have cautioned over and over again yung aming mga personnel not to indulge in indiscriminate firing otherwise that will means their immediate dismissal from the service,” said he said.

Albayalde, meanwhile, will leave the regional directors to decide on whether or not to require all their personnel to go on duty this holiday season.

However, the PNP chief assured he will still conduct random inspections to ensure that policemen are not neglecting their stations. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue

The remains of PNP high-value target, Rolando Abundo Jr.

 

MANILA, Philippines — A man died on the spot after engaging in a gunfight with members of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), who only set out to serve a search warrant.

The encounter happened at around 8:00 pm on Wednesday (December 12) at the suspect’s rented house in May P. Taylo St., Brgy. Pio Del Pilar, Makati City.

The suspect was identified as Rolando Abundo Jr. who is on PNP’s list of high-value targets.

PNP chief Oscar Albayalde said Abundo is a member of a criminal gang that is involved in drug trafficking and gun-for-hire operations. He was facing murder charges.

“Since meron siyang kaso na murder, most probably kung sinu-sino yung nag-hahire sa kanya. It’s not very remote that he is being hired by a big-time or influential people that include unscrupulous politicians, probably candidates, based on information,” said Albayalde.

Seized from the suspect’s residence are high-caliber guns including a M4 and M16 rifle, improvised grenade launcher, a gloc caliber .40, three caliber .38 pistol, 22 round of M203, a hand grenade, and various types of ammunition.

Police also confiscated 10 sachets of suspected shabu allegedly valued at P3 million, and cash believed to have come from selling illegal drugs.

Abundo’s mother and his sibling got involved in the encounter and were brought to the Pasay General Hospital.

Seven individuals were brought to a precinct to undergo an investigation.

Police said that these individuals served as look-outs, spotters, and runners of  the suspect.

“Bale kararating ko lang dito galing sa bahay. Pupuntahan ko yung girlfriend ko. Paakyat po ako ng hagdan tapos nagputukan bigla po. Tapos nanduon lang ako sa taas tapos hinold din po ako dito,” said “Leo”.

“’Di ko po alam natutulog po ako sa loob lumabas lang kasama yung anak ko kasi baka kami tamaan ng bala. Hinold na ko ito sa labas,” said “Bastian”.

Albayalde, meanwhile, calls on the public to be vigilant and to immediately report to the police any suspicious person in your area.

“Napakaliit at napakasikip pero binugbog niya ng CCTV yung kanyang bahay. Think kung ikaw neighbor mo itong tao na ito supposed to be magduda ka na… this kind of place,” said the PNP chief.  — Gerry Galicia | UNTV News & Rescue

NCRPO chief conducts surprise inspections on Metro Manila police stations

NCRPO chief Guillermo Eleazar

National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Guillermo Eleazar conducted surprised Metro Manila police stations with unannounced inspections on Wednesday night (November 14).

He first visited the Manila Police District (MPD) where PO1 Eduardo Valencia is currently being detained.

Valencia is facing rape charges for forcing himself on a minor in exchange for the freedom of said minor’s parents who were arrested over illegal drugs.

“Siniguro ko lang kasi na talagang nakakulong siya kagaya ng ibang nahuhuli natin. Ito kasi isang pulis, maaring iniisip ng ibang kababayan natin na porke police yan baka mamaya binibigyan ng special treatment ng mga kabaro. Nasiguro natin at napakita natin at gusto kong malaman, ng ating mga kababayan, ating publiko na police na yun na kinasuhan natin ng rape ay nakakulong just like any other suspect na arestado natin,” said Eleazar.

Valencia refused to face the media.

Apart from the MPD, Eleazar also inspected Pandacan Police Station 10, Malate Police Station, and Sta. Ana Police Station 6.

The NCRPO chief wants to affirm that there are no police officers sleeping while on duty; that they are wearing their uniforms and their stations are kept clean.

“Kasi siyempre kung surprise, malalaman natin kung ano talaga yung kanilang ginagawa. Itong Station 6, actually isa ito sa mga station noon na una kong ininspect, few months back. Ang observation ko noon, di ko naman ini-inspection na yung station commander nandito. Last time wala siya noon; madumi yung paligid. Pero ngayon nandito yung station commander,” said Eleazar.

In the four stations visited by the chief, no police officer was caught sleeping while on duty and the precincts were kept clean inside and out. — Nestor Torres
