MANILA, Philippines – The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) has its new chief in the person of Police BGen. Debold Sinas.
Sinas formally took over as the NCRPO chief in a turnover ceremony held in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City on Wednesday (October 16).
Sinas replaced Police Major General Guillermo Eleazar who was promoted to the position of Chief of Directorial Staff.
In the ceremony, Eleazar noted the NCRPO’s accomplishment during his six months in office including crime reduction in Metro Manila through strong campaign against illegal drugs and enforcing peace and order ordinances.
Likewise, Eleazar took note of the NCRPO’s internal cleansing within their ranks.
With his exit from the NCRPO, Eleazar is confident that his successor, BGen. Sinas, will continue his programs towards the improvement of police service in the NCR.
Sinas and Eleazar are both members of PMA Hinirang Class of 1987.
“Ako’y naniniwala na with the presence of Gen. Sinas, my classmate, itutuloy niya ang pagtataguyod nitong ating nasimulan para ipagpatuloy ang pagsugpo sa iligal na droga hindi lamang dito sa Metro Manila kung hindi sa buong Pilipinas,” Eleazar said.
(I believe that with the presence of Gen. Sinas, my classmate, he will continue what we have started in combatting illegal drugs not only here in Metro Manila but across the Philippines.)
Sinas, for his part, said he will not change any from the current programs in the NCRPO but he promised to support them especially the current campaign against illegal drugs, high-value targets and the strict implementation of discipline among cops.
In particular, Sinas said he will strictly bar policemen from playing golf during weekdays so that cops will not neglect their duty and to prevent corruption by irresponsible spending.
Sinas said he already imposed such order among cops in Central Visayas.
“It takes time maglaro. Minimum diyan is four hours. Imagine, ang mga tao namin maglalaro ng alas-7:00pm. Matatapos iyan ng 11:00pm (It takes time to play [golf]. Minimum time spent is 4 hours. They will start from 7:00am, then end at 11:00pm),” Sinas said of cops’ golf routine.
“Anong nang oras iyan magrereport (What time will they report for duty)?” he added.
The newly installed NCRPO chief also clarified that he will not reshuffle any position at the moment but he wants to give lady police officers a chance to lead.
“Why not utilize them in our operational aspect? Why delegate them to administrative if they could share or do their job for operational competing (with) their male counterpart?” Sinas concluded. – MNP (with reports from Harlene Delgado)
MANILA, Philippines – National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) director Major General Guillermo Eleazar has been designated to chief of the Directorial Staff of the Philippine National Police (PNP) following a major reshuffle of police key posts.

Mendez will be replaced by Police Lt. Gen. Archie Gamboa, who is currently the deputy for operations.
Police Lt. Gen. Camilo Cascolan, who is the current chief of the directorial staff, will take over the post soon to be vacated by Gamboa.
Eleazar, Gamboa and Cascolan have earlier been reported as front runners to replace PNP chief General Oscar Albayalde, who is set to retire on November 8.
Central Visayas Regional Director BGen. Debold Sinas will replace Eleazar as head of the NCRPO.
The PNP said the new designations will take effect on October 12. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Lea Ylagan)
MANILA, Philippines – National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Chief Police Major Guillermo Eleazar visited his men who are members of the “Strike Force” deployed inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP).
Eleazar said he wants to check on their conditions and if they are implementing the necessary measures inside the national penitentiary.
“Nakita natin from the entrance gate pati sa loob at doon sa observation post, kapag ikot natin doon ay puro NCRPO personnel na ang nandon na siyang tumutulong sa Bureau of Corrections,” he said.
(We observed from the entrance gate to the inside premises and the observation post, we see NCRPO personnel are now the ones who are supporting the members of the Bureau of Corrections.)
“Dapat ang mga ito ay hindi ma-tempt sa mga naging problema noong dati dito (They should not be tempted and be involved in similar problems as before),” he added.
BuCor Director General Gerlad Bantag, meanwhile, said he ordered to place under training all former policemen of the BuCor and he assured those with a bad record would no longer be reinstated.
“Magre-recruit tayo (We will recruit),” Bantag said.
“Iyong hiring tayo syempre iyan ini-evaluate nga sila. Kung sino ang pwedeng ibalik, ibabalik (We are hiring so they are being evaluated. Whoever is qualified to be reinstated, will be reinstated),” he added.
Eleazar noted that the deployment of his men inside the NBP is only temporary until Bantag has ordered for their replacement.
Meanwhile, the Armed Forces of the Philippines Joint Task Force NCR and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) who are members of the Quad Intel Force will be on standby to support and help in the ‘cleansing’ of the BuCor.
“Kung ano ang suporta na kailangan sa amin (Whatever support that they would be needing from us) from intel gathering information, sharing of information up to K-9, bubuhos po kami dyan (We will be all out),” said PDEA NCR Investigation Agent 5 Beltran Lacap Jr.
“We will always be providing support to NCRPO, in intelligence gathering,” added JTF-NCR AFP Lt. Col. Eugene Villaluz.
“If you need some sort of manpower,” Villaluz added.
On Friday (October 11), the NCRPO deployed a total of 551 cops to the NBP. – MNP (with details from Lea Ylagan)
The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Chief Guillermo Eleazar has challenged Manila ‘drug queen’ Guia Gomez Castro to return to the Philippines and face the allegations against her.
According to Eleazar, Castro is the alleged mastermind in the recycling of illegal drugs seized by the so-called ninja cops. However, Eleazar said she already left the country.
“Mainit na siya noong 2016 at lumabas na rin iyong pangalan niya, umalis na siya at nangibang bansa (She was already under the radar in 2016 and her name have come up in the past. She has already left the country),” he said.
Eleazar reported she came back to the country last September 18 from Vancouver, Canada but she left again last September 21 en route to Bangkok, Thailand.
“Mas maganda na harapin niya iyong kaso pati na rin iyong kanyang asawa at angkan niya (It is better if she, as well as her husband and relatives, face the allegations),” Eleazar challenged.—AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
