Complaints against the so-called police scalawags continue to pour in the headquarters of the newly formed Philippine National Police Counter Intelligence Task Force (CITF).
CITF Spokesperson PCInsp. Jewel Nicanor said that after more than a month since the operation of the CITF begun, they have already received 3,279 complaints via text message, while the maximum number of calls they receive and walk in complainants they accommodate in a day is three.
Many of the complaints are about robbery and extortion of motorists.
Nicanor clarified that each complaint undergoes thorough assessment to ensure that none of it is a form of harassment against cops.
“Upon receiving the SMS complaints, we have a dedicated team to screen the SMS if it is actionable or not… If actionable we deploy our personnel to validate the information,” PCInsp. Nicanor said.
The CITF has already conducted 7 operations where operatives caught several suspects who are now facing criminal charges before courts, and administrative cases before the Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (DIDM) of the PNP.
“The cases we filed range from robbery extortion, illegal arrest and violation of RA 3019 o Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, Violation of RA 6713 o Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials,” added Nicanor.
The CITF has once again called on the public to immediately report rogue cops to its hotline number and Facebook account.
The police unit also vows to hide the identity of the complainants who worry about their safety.
“It is our utmost concern to secure the identity of those complainants. We do not divulge the complainants’ identities. We give utmost importance to the privacy of those who provide us information,” the CITF spokesperson said. – Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue

Officers of the Rizal Provincial Police Office, headed by Acting Provincial Director PSSupt. Lou Frias Evangelista (left), present suspects arrested in a series of anti-criminality operations (SACO) in Rizal Province.
The Philippine National Police have arrested over 108 suspects in a series of anti-criminality operations (SACO) in Rizal Province.
Alleged offenders were arrested for cases of frustrated murder, homicide, physical injury, robbery, theft and car napping.
Thirty-nine of the suspects are on the wanted list; six of whom are among PNP’s most wanted persons; and two were killed in Antipolo City.
PNP Rizal Acting Provincial Director PSSupt. Lou Frias Evangelista said, “Nung nakita po nila yung ating kapulisan na parating na ay pinutukan po sila. Syempre gumanti po yung ating kapulisan. At sa kasamaang palad ay naneutralize po nila yung dalawang tao na tungkol sa search warrant.”
(The suspects open fired when they saw the police approaching. The police retaliated of course and unfortunately killed two of the warrant’s subjects.)
Police confiscated from the arrested personalities seven loose firearms which include hand guns, shotguns and a hand grenade. They also found 237 sachets of suspected shabu and four sachets of suspected marijuana.
The Rizal Crime Laboratory Office is currently processing the evidence for presentation at the Rizal Prosecutors Office. — Jennica Cruz | UNTV News & Rescue
