by UNTV News   |   Posted on Friday, November 10th, 2017


MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa led the 116th Police Service Anniversary in Zamboanga City on Thursday.

In his speech, PNP chief Dela Rosa gave an order to the policemen about their new mission to go after riding in tandem criminals.

 “Let’s focus on riding-in-tandem criminals. We are no longer in the drugs war. Let’s find these riding-in-tandem criminals and finish them off. These fools are the ones destroying us,” he said.

Meanwhile, Dela Rosa refused to comment on the status of the anti-drug campaign of the government under the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

During the event, the PNP proudly announced that beginning next year, cops will receive salary raise and new equipment like police patrol vehicles.

Dela Rosa said that the conduct of internal cleansing among the ranks of the police will remain so the public’s trust to the PNP will return.

“Let us continue to prove to our countrymen that the PNP is composed of more good men and women than scalawags. Let’s not allow the total destruction of the name of the organization just because of the corruption of some cops,” said the chief.

Also, during the ceremony, the PNP gave recognition to several deserving cops, police units, non-uniformed personnel and it also gave special awards to the representatives of the Police Regional Office 9. — Victor Cosare | UNTV News & Rescue

2 alleged guns-for-hire killed in Antipolo encounter

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, August 6th, 2018

Two suspected members of the Landingin gun- for-hire group were killed in an encounter with police in Barangay Pantok, Binangonan, Rizal.

Authorities on Sunday were closely monitoring the suspects’ movements from Rodriguez, Rizal to an apartelle in Antipolo where the joint forces of Binangonan Police and Highway Patrol Group cornered the alleged hitmen.

Rizal Provincial Director Police Senior Superintendent Lou Frias Evangelista said, “Ito, kapag bumibira sila, ayon sa amin impormasyon na ito ang ginagamit nilang hide-out. Kapag umistrayk sila sa ibang lugar, halimbawa sa Rodriguez then dito sila magpapahinga, Antipolo, sa ibang lugar naman.”

(Based on information we received, the suspects use this apartelle as a hideout during an operation. When they strike in one place, in Rodriguez for instance, they run away to Antipolo to cool down.)

The suspects were identified as Jeffrey Landingin, the group’s leader, and Richard Alcantara.

Authorities recovered one .40 caliber pistol and three .45 caliber handguns from the two.

A series of killings in Rizal province prompted the authorities to monitor the duo.

“Hopefully, yung mga na-gather nating evidence ay magsasabi na sila yung mga responsible sa mga killing dito sa Rizal,” PSSupt. Evangelista said.

(Hopefully the evidence we have gathered can conclusively prove that they were responsible for the killings in Rizal.)

He added that the suspects may have been involved in the killings of San Mateo, Rizal barangay captain, Danilo Laciste and former policeman Rudolfo Lico. — Jennica Cruz

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Motorcycles are commonly used as getaway vehicles by riding-in-tandem criminals.

In fact, the Philippine National Police (PNP) recorded a total of 959 crime incidents involving motorcycle-riding suspects in the second quarter of the year alone.

This prompted authorities to launch today (August 1) the clean rider stickers in a nationwide scale.

PNP Chief PDG Oscar Albayalde explained that motorcycle bearing the sticker would be allowed an easy pass in checkpoints. The sticker will also spare the rider from being suspected of crimes in their area.

The PNP Chief reiterated that the stickers are free of charge.

To avail of the sticker, the motorcycle owner needs to go to the nearest police station and present the vehicle’s OR-CR. In case the vehicle is registered under a different name, present the deed of sale, driver’s license and two government IDs.

The PNP assures that all applicants for the stickers will be subjected under careful background investigation. – Lea Ylagan / Marje Pelayo
