Pull out of checkpoints will not affect PNP’s anti-criminality campaign
admin • November 2, 2016 • 4719
The enforcement of checkpoints is just part of the anti-criminality campaign of the Philippine National Police.
Despite its dismantling, it won’t have a negative effect on the fight of the PNP against crime.
PNP Directorate for Operations P/CSupt. Camilo Cascolan said, they have mobile checkpoints that would replace fixed checkpoints.
Cascolan said with the mobile checkpoints, the PNP is focused on the enforcement of foot patrol and police visibility.
“The implementation of checkpoints is just one of the factors that help in ensuring peace and order. But there are many others like the mobile patrol, and beat patrol. Those are the visibility patrols that we always do,” said Cascolan.
The police officials also warned that cops who will be caught sleeping inside the mobile checkpoints will face charges.
“Report them immediately and we’ll file charges against them. We’ll place them under PHAU and will face charges,” Cascolan said.
However, the general said the police might still put fixed and mobile checkpoints in places needed to be cordoned off due to several situations like when there’s an intelligence report on criminal presence, or when there’s a case operational plan in the area.
“This is what happens when we have to cover the entire area. So that the criminals who are riding-in-tandem, terrorists, other criminals, or those committing felonies will be prevented from entering and leaving a place.”
Amid the dismantling of checkpoints across the country, the PNP allayed fears, assuring the public that they won’t neglect their duties and that they will double their effort in increasing police visibility and patrols to ensure the safety of the public. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
MANILA, Philippines – Kinumpirma ni Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Debold Sinas na may hawak silang bagong listahan ng mga pulis na umano’y sangkot sa operasyon ng iligal na droga sa bansa.
Sa ekslusibong ulat ni UNTV Correspondent Lea Ylagan, sinabi ni Sinas na may ranggo ang mga pulis na nakasama sa listahan ngunit tumanggi siyang tukuyin ang mga ito, kung saan naka-assign pati na ang pangalan ng mga tinaguriang narco-cops.
“Halo na po yan. Kaunti na lang yan pero hindi na muna namin pangalanan at sabihiin ang ranggo kasi baka magtanungan eh,” ang pahayag ng hepe ng pambansang pulisya.
Ayon kay Sinas, ang listahan ay batay sa nakalap na intelligence report patuloy pa itong isinasailalim sa validation process.
Isasalang din aniya ito sa adjudication process gaya ng ginawa sa termino ng nag-retiro nang si PNP chief General Archie Gamboa.
Sa panahon ni Gamboa, aabot sa 357 pulis ang napabilang sa sinasabing narco-list.
“Ito lang naman ay more on intelligence report, bina-validate, evaluated, confirmed, re-confirmed… Ganoon po ang proseso natin. Pagdating sa DI ay ina-adjudicate kung totoo nga o hindi para finally remain them in the list or to remove them,” ang wika ni Sinas.
Sakaling makumpirmang sangkot nga sa operasyon ng iligal na droga ang mga nasa listahan at may sapat na ebidensiya at testigo ay sasampahan ang mga ito ng kaukulang kaso. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)
MANILA, Philippines – Obligado na ngayong maglaan ng oras para sa ehersisyo ang mga pulis kahit nasa loob lang ng kani-kanilang mga opisina.
Ayon kay Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Debold Sinas, kailangang maglaan ng apat na minutong exercise, dalawang beses sa isang araw, ang mga pulis upang manatiling malusog ang pangangatawan.
“10 o’clock in the morning habit, at 3 o’clock in the afternoon habit. ‘Yun ‘yung 4-minute exercise, inumpisahan na namin ipatupad doon sa headquarters…. Simple lang naman yun, nasa opisina ka nakaupo gawin mo yun. Mapapansin mo at mararamdaman mo yung effect,” ang wika ng hepe ng PNP.
Aniya, kapag tumugtog na ang awiting Voltes V ay kailangang huminto ang mga pulis sa kanilang ginagawa para mag-ehersisyo, nakaupo man o nakatayo.
Ayon kay Sinas, maging siya ay ginagawa ito para sa pagsisikap niyang maging physically fit, dagdag pa ang mahigpit na monitoring sa kaniyang diet.
Katunayan aniya ay nabawasan na ang kanyang timbang – mula sa 300 pounds ay nasa 255 pounds na siya ngayon.
“Ang ideal weight ko is 210 pero payat na payat nako nun baka sabihin mo gumagamit na ako… I’m happy to have 230 – 240 para medyo may laman naman,” ang pahayag ni Sinas.
Maliban sa ehersisyo, pinababantayan rin ni Sinas ang body mass index (BMI) ng kanyang mga tauhan upang makaiwas sa sakit.
Ang body mass index ng isang tao ay dapat nakabatay sa height nito.
Ayon kay Sinas, ang mga pulis na nasa obese category ay hindi papayagang sumailalim sa mandatory schooling na maaaring maka-apekto sa proseso ng kanilang promosyon. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)
MANILA, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Debold Sinas on Wednesday said he has directed the Civil Security Group (CSG) to extend the working days of its personnel involved in frontline services to accommodate more clients.
Sinas said he has issued instructions to CSG director Police Brigadier General Rolando Hinanay to operate the One-Stop-Shop beyond the regular working days to decrease the number of applicants for License to Exercise Security Profession (LESP) for private security, and the License to Own and Possess Firearms (LTOPF) during weekdays.
This means that the CSG will accommodate LESP and LTOPF applicants even on weekends and holidays starting Nov. 28 to Dec. 13. During Saturdays, the One-Stop-Shop services will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays or Holidays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The scheduling scheme for clients will be based on an online queuing system to control and streamline the number of visitors in Camp Crame.
“We see to it that we control the customer flow in the National Headquarters to contain the spread of COVID-19 and for the safety of everyone. On a daily average, the CSG-OSS has 700 to 800 clients,” Sinas said.
The PNP chief also ordered the CSG to open a One-Stop-Shop annex at the Permit to Carry Firearms Outside of Residence Office for the processing of DI clearances needed in applying for LESP, neuro-psycho test and drug test for LTOPF applicants.
He is likewise eyeing to open a CSG Extension Offices in Eastern Police District, Northern Police District, and Southern Police District.
“Aside from this development for CSG services, we are working on the possible opening of LTOFP booths in shopping malls in Metro Manila, and printing hubs of LESP and LTOFP cards to be placed in all Police Regional Offices nationwide,” Sinas said. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Lea Ylagan)
