NCRPO to sack Caloocan cops who will fail retraining

UNTV News   •   September 20, 2017   •   3831


MANILA, Philippines — The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) will soon begin its retraining of more than 1,000 Caloocan policemen.

NCRPO Chief Oscar Albayalde said this is part of their effort to discipline the policemen.

He assured to remove from position those who will fail the training.

“They will be charged administratively if they will fail, if they will not go to the training or evade the training,” Albayalde said.

The training will no longer focus on skills training because Albayalde believes it is discipline that needs to be re-instilled among the cops.

“Basically it’s the discipline, that is the problem.  It’s the attitude. That is why even if they  have already been trained, they need to have a refresher, reorientation, ethics formation, values formation all of these,” Albayalde said.

Albayalde clarified that not all relieved policemen are erring cops. He adds that majority of the cops are still considered good.

However, they need to relieve the entire Caloocan Police team as they form a single unit that needs cooperation

“When you work with the PNP you are in a organization, that’s what it means, so whether you are not involved, you are still a part of it because you are in an organization, not individual,” Albayalde added.

After the training, the relieved policemen will be reassigned to different places while the NCRPO will fill in vacant posts with cops from other units.

They will undergo background checks before they will be assigned to Caloocan Police Station. – Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

The Philippine National Police (PNP) will create a new task force to replace the Counter-Intelligence Task Force (CITF) in order to pin down corrupt cops.

The PNP has launched the Integrity Monitoring and Enforcement Group (IMEG) as part of the plan to strengthen their campaign against corrupt policemen.

PNP Chief PGen. Oscar Albayalde said the new task force will focus on all erring policemen including those involved in illegal drugs.

“It will be as relentless as the first day that we launched our campaign against illegal drugs, hindi magbabago iyan. Walang aabuso na pulis, hindi lang pang aabuso, pati iyong mga mai-involve sa korapsyon, (That will not change. No cop will abuse [their authority], this also include cops involved in corruption),” he said.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año said they are serious in cleansing the whole police ranks.

“We upgraded the CITF into a group so meaning to say more resources, more people, and more authority, because we are serious in cleansing the ranks of the policemen,” he said.

The IMEG, according to Albayalde will still be headed by PCol. Romeo Caramat. It will also need new equipment and personnel for a more comprehensive cleansing.(with reports from Lea Ylagan)
