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

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

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Oscar Albayalde said he still wants members of the press to join the police in anti-illegal drug operations because media men are considered witnesses.

“No. I will not put an end to that. That’s one way of showing and instilling transparency,” the PNP Chief said on Tuesday (November 6).

This is in relation to an order that media men should sign a document that would prove their participation in operations.

Albayalde said the presence of media people would deter a possible rub out.

Nevertheless, the PNP Chief assured that they will always be willing to provide protection to any media personnel who would join the risky job of hunting and arresting lawless elements.

“Kasama sa risk talaga ng ating trabaho iyan, just like you, sa media. Ganoon rin na mayroong risk and we understand that. So iyong sa amin naman if you think your life is in danger pwede kayong humingi ng tulong sa ating mga pulis,” Albayalde concluded. – Marje Pelayo (with reports from Marisol Montaño)

Philippine National Police Chief Oscar Albayalde reiterated his support for the extension of martial law in Mindanao after it was reported that crime rate in the region has declined.

“If ever the President decides to extend the martial law, we will fully support that kasi (because) what we see here is the improvement in the peace and order,” he said.

The average monthly crime rate of 8.79 percent recorded by PNP from January to September in 2017 went down to 5.92 percent in 2018.

Albayalde said the extension of martial law in Mindanao is important particularly as the May 2019 elections loom closer. — Lea Ylagan
