MANILA, Philippines — National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief PDir. Oscar Albayalde said Caloocan chief of police PSSupt. Jemar Modequillo and Manila Police District (MPD) Station 11 commander PSupt. Amante Daro have both failed to report separate shooting incidents in their areas of responsibility.

Albayalde said his office only learned about the two incidents when they saw a news report on TV.

“There’s a directive that you have to text immediately kahit na (even if its just a) sketchy report lang. You have to report that incident in less than 24 hours actually,” said the police director.

The station commander of Quezon City Police (QCPD) Station 10, on the other hand, was relieved because of the untidy condition of the station, which PNP chief PDG. Ronald dela Rosa had personally seen. — UNTV News & Rescue

LAGUNA, Philippines – The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) launched on Friday (June 29) a hotline where the public may report cases of abuse and illegal activities of policemen.

The hotline numbers are 0915 888 8181 for Globe subscribers and 0999 901 8181 for Smart subscribers.

Aside from texts and calls, the public may also send actual pictures and videos to support their complaints through the said hotline numbers.

NCRPO Director PCSupt. Guillermo Eleazar said that with the use of technology they will be able to immediately respond to incidents especially if those involved are erring cops.

“Kung iko-comapare naten nangyare sa Manila kahapon, itong entrapment operation kung hindi nagreport itong asawa ng isa sa biktima nila at hindi nakarating sa amin, no way that we can act on this kaya it needs community participation,” explained Eleazar.

Eleazar encourages the public to be vigilant and not be afraid to report any illegal activity as the PNP ensures the informant’s protection.

PNP Chief Director General Oscar Albayalde commended the NCRPO’s initiative saying he is confident that such measure will be a big help towards arrest of scalawags in uniform. – Sherwin Culubong / Marje Pelayo
