Police BGen. Debold Sinas

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)

Checkpoint at travel pass, ipatutupad pa rin sa ilang lugar – PNP

MANILA, Philippines – Hindi pa rin ititigil ng Philippine National Police (PNP) ang pagpapatupad ng checkpoint at travel authority pass sa ilang lugar sa bansa kahit pinayagan na ang paglabas ng mas maraming tao sa gitna community quarantine.

Ayon kay police Joint Task Force Coronavirus (JTF CV) Shield commander Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar, nasa desisyon ng mga lokal na pamahalaan kung papayagan ang paglabas at pagbiyahe ng mga taong hindi kabilang sa authorized persons outside of residence (APOR) at locally-stranded individuals kasunod ng desisyon ng Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) sa paglabas ng tahanan ng mga nasa edad na 15 hanggang 65 taong gulang.

Una nang sinabi ni League of Provinces of the Philippines head, Marinduque Governor Presbitero Velaso na tuloy pa rin ang pagpapatupad ng quarantine rules para sa kapakanan ng kanilang constituents laban sa coronavirus disease.

Sa kabila nito, sinabi ni Eleazar na hindi isinasantabi nila ang posibilidad na may mga lugar na nais nang alisin ang travel restrictions para makabangon ang lokal na ekonomiya.

Pero hangga’t hindi aniya inaalis ang travel restrictions ay mananatili ang checkpoint at paghahanap ng travel pass sa mga checkpoint bilang requirement sa mga uuwi o bibiyahe sa mga probinsiya.

Sa ngayon aniya ay nakikipag-ugnayan na ang police ground commanders sa mga lokal na pamahalaan upang alamin kung may mga pagbabago sa ipinatutupad na travel protocol policy.

“Ibig sabihin noon, kapag ang isang probinsya ay wala nang restriction, hindi na kailangan ng travel authority kung pupunta doon,” ang pahayag ni Eleazar.

Payo naman ng opisyal sa publiko na alamin ang panuntunan ng mga bayang pupuntahan o dadaanan bago ang kanilang biyahe upang maiwasan ang aberya.

“Dahil kung ang pupuntahan niyo o yung dadaanan niyo, alin man don ay restricted pa din like nagre-require ng travel authority ay kailangang mag secure kayo ng kanilang requirement,” ang wika ni Eleazar. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)


Mga menor de edad, bawal pa rin sa computer shops – Eleazar

Robie de Guzman   •   October 2, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Hindi pa rin papayagang pumasok sa computer shops ang mga menor de edad kahit magbukas na ang klase sa Lunes, Oktubre 5.

Ayon kay Joint Task Force COVID Shield commander Police Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar, mahigpit pa rin nilang ipatutupad ang “no minors allowed” policy sa computer shops kahit batid nilang marami pang estudyante ang walang magagamit na laptop, gadget at internet para sa pagsasagawa ng online learning.

“We understand that a number of elementary and high school students in the public schools do not have computers, laptops, and other gadgets for the opening of classes so there maybe some of them who would go to the internet shops for their online classes for the use of computers and to avail of internet connections,” ang pahayag ni Eleazar.

Sa ipinaiiral na alintuntun ng Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF), ang pagbabawal sa mga menor de edad ay isa sa mga kondisyon para payagang magbukas ang internet shops sa mga lugar na may umiiral na community quarantine restrictions.

Ayon kay Eleazar, binilinan na ang local police commanders na magsagawa ng mahigpit na pagbabantay sa internet shops at makipag-ugnayan sa mga mga lokal na otoridad para sa pagpapatupad ng health protocols.

Pina-alalahanan rin ng opisyal ang mga internet shop owners na sundin ang polisiya.

“Our commanders on the ground should take the lead not only in reminding the internet shop owners that minors should not be allowed to enter in accordance of the guideline of the IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of the Emerging Infectious Diseases) but also in making sure that this and other rules are strictly and properly observed,” ang wika ni Eleazar.
