MANILA, Philippines — Police Community Relations Group (PCRG) Director PSSupt. Rhodel Sermonia, the programs of the Philippine National Police (PNP) would not achieve success without the help of others.
Sermonia pertains to some government agencies, the corporate world and the media which the PNP gathered so that PNP chief Police Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa could personally thank them.
“The stakeholders night of the Philippine National Police is a way for the pnp to thank everyone who helped us in our community service especially UNTV, for the support you give the police. You can never be a good operative without links to the community. You cannot be a good intelligence officer if you lack cooperation with the public,” said the PCRG director.
UNTV also expressed gratitude to the PNP through Radyo La Verdad Station Manager Ms. Annie Rentoy.
Ms. Annie Rentoy said that this is for giving the company the opportunity to be part of the efforts of the PNP to serve the public.
“First and foremost, I am thanking God, and of course the Philippine National Police because they appreciate the help provided by UNTV, led by Kuya Daniel Razon. As you very well know, Kuya Daniel gave several programs to PNP. The PNP has slots in UNTV and Radyo La Verdad in order to promote their projects and of course the info dissemination and the programs they are creating for the public,” said the station manager.
The PNP has programs on Radyo La Verdad and on UNTV called Pulis at Ur Serbis.
The UNTV also helps PNP in terms of providing assistance to police beneficiaries through the conduct of the league of public servants, the UNTV Cup.
Participating in the UNTV Cup is the PNP responders.
The UNTV is also PNP’s partner in providing aid to the families of the slain 44 Special Action Force (SAF) troopers in Mamasapano Maguindanao and to the families left behind by their hero loved ones through the conduct of the Songs for Heroes concert. — Robbie De Guzman | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines – Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año said that cops included in the narco-list who opted to file for optional retirement will not be exonerated from criminal charges if they are found to be involved in the illegal drug trade.
Año made the statement Wednesday after some members of the opposition group slammed reports on the move of the Philippine National Police (PNP) to give the 357 cops included in the narco-list the option to retire early to reduce the cases for adjudication.
PNP chief Gen. Archie Gamboa earlier said he is open to optional retirement of police officers accused of having drug links to lessen the government resources that will be used when the adjudication begins.
He, however, asserted that the early retirement won’t clear the cops from allegations and that this is not an easy way out.
He added that any officer who initially availed of the early retirement option will be pursued if proven to be involved in the narcotics trade.
Gamboa recently met with most of the 357 cops and explained to them the process of the two-way adjudication to be initiated based on his request to President Rodrigo Duterte.
The process involves adjudication at the regional and directorial level for one week before the cases go to the national level which will handle the cases for three weeks.
Once all the cases are submitted to the Office of the PNP Chief, it will take three days for him to submit the results of the adjudication for approval.
Año said the 357 cops accused of having drug links should present proof to remove their names from the narco-list.
“Patunayan nilang wala silang kaugnayan sa iligal na droga. Nasa kanila ang burden of proof, iprisinta nila ang mga ebidensya na magpapatunay na wala silang kinalaman at kaugnayan sa iligal na droga,” he said.
The DILG chief said the evidence should be presented to four agencies handling illegal drug reports – the PNP, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, the National Intelligence Coordinating Agency and the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
“Hanggang hindi nagkakaroon ng pagkakasundo ang apat na ahensyang ito, hangga’t hindi nila sinasabi ng ‘Okay na yan’, magpapatuloy ang imbestigasyon,” he said.
The narco-list is a consolidation of intelligence and other reports from law-enforcement agencies and still needs to be verified and validated. Aside from uniformed personnel, the list also includes local officials and judges as well as other personalities.
Once a complaint is filed, it can be validated within a month, Año said.
He also said that the final clearance will come from the President.
“Gusto nating maparusahan ang mga may kaugnayan sa iligal na droga” Año said. “I commend PNP Chief Gamboa for having the courage in resolving this issue na matagal ng burden ng PNP. We need to deal with this para makapagtrabaho na nang matino ang ating mga pulis,” he added.
