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
