Leave the service, new PNP chief tells erring cops

MANILA, Philippines—Newly appointed Philippine National Police chief, Deputy Director General Alan La Madrid Purisma, on Tuesday called on policemen involved in illegal activities to just leave the service.

This appeal was made amid reports tagging a high-ranking police officer in the illegal numbers game “Jueteng” in Pangasinan, along with separate reports of dismissed cops, particularly from the National Capital Region Police Office.

“Ang mensahe ko sa mga kasamahan natin sa PNP na sangkot sa kasamaan at katiwalian: umalis na kayo ngayon pa lang (my message to our colleagues involved in illegal activities: leave the service now),” Purisma said in his assumption speech during the PNP Change of Command Ceremonies where he replaced Director General Nicanor Bartolome as PNP Chief.

In NCRPO alone, Purisima said 73 policemen had been dismissed, 18 others were demoted, and 61 had been suspended since September.

Moreover, Purisima said he is set to impose a “no multi-tasking policy and system,” which aims to define the specific role of each and every policeman. The same was first implemented during his time as NCRPO director.

“Kung ikaw ay isang imbestigador, dapat naka-tuon ka sa mga kasong ibibigay sa iyo. . . Kapag ikaw naman ay nakatalaga sa patrolya, dapat lang na hindi ka na tawagin para gawin ang ibang trabaho (If you are an investigator, you should be focused on the cases assigned to you…if you have been detailed with patrol, you should not be called to do other jobs),” he said, noting that delays in the completion of work, sometimes, are a result of working on different tasks all at the same time.

“Dahil dito, madali nang matutukoy ang nakakagawa at hindi nakakagawa sa kaniyang tungkulin. Sa wikang Ingles, ‘putting round pegs in round holes,’” Purisma added.

The new PNP chief said he would be strict in terms of work delivery, expecting nothing but the best result in every job, but added that his demand for commitment and excellence from his men would be appropriately supported by the leadership.

He said trainings and other refresher programs will also be conducted to enhance the skills and capabilities of police officers, both in the completion of administrative jobs and operation and investigation tasks.

“Sa lahat po ng miyembro ng ating Pambansang Pulisya, ang Daang Matuwid na itinataguyod ng ating mahal na Pangulo [Benigno Aquino III], at hangarin din ng ating mga kababayan, ay ating tatahakin (To all members of the PNP, we will follow the straight path alid down by our dear President),” he said.

    Dismissal, demotion and suspension -PNP gets to brag about this? The people want to see jailtime for cops who break the law! They took an oath to uphold the law, they should be willing to pay a higher price if they abuse it. This is the only way to discourage corruption within the PNP’s ranks.

      tumpak…

    bigyan nyo ng board and lodging allowance ang mga kapulisan lalo na yung mga non-commisiononed-officers kapag ni-a-assign nyo as:

    1. Augmentation Force sa mga Cities and Towns fiesta celebration. Most of the time ay hinahakot nyo by bus ang mga pulis papunta ng malalaking ciudad para tumulong sa Fiesta Celebration peace and order support. Pero after ihatid ng bus, ay bahala na sila sa pagkain (sariling gastos) at saka lodging, else matutulog sa kampo na bangkong mahaba lang ang tutulugan.

    2. Ganun din ang ginagawa nyo sa mga NCO policemen during election time. 2 to 3 months before deployment sa mga hotspots ay dadalhin nyo lang by bus then bahala na sila sa pagkain at lodging.

    3. Magkaroon kayo ng quality time and lean plan sa relyebo ng policemen. They are also HUMAN beings and they are also have FAMILY and KIDS. They need to work only 40 hours per week and and a maximum additional Overtime of 10 hours of work per week just in case there are emergency.

    4. Don’t ever let the corrupt mayors and mayoras interfere with police business. Maraming matataray na mayors and mayoras na kapag nalaman ang police or family/angkan ng police ay di sya binoto sa election ay nibu-bully nila ang kawawang NCO policemen. Pinapaassign nila sa malalayo at liblib na lugar without extra hazard pay etc. Ang maruruming budhi ng mga mayor at mayoras ang isa sa dahilan kung bakit nagkakaroon ng mga masasama or walang-kibo (sa krimen) na mga pulis.

    Congratulation new PNP chief, hoping that your leadership in the PNP will make a difference in terms of peace in order & law enforcement . Those bad seeds in the force should be dismissed and punished accordingly with no compromise. Start the good work mr. PNP chief !

    Dapat ay taasan ang sahod ng mga pulis para hindi gumawa ng pagdelihensya at kung gumawa pa din ng pagdelihensya ay bitayin na ng patiwarik para malaglag ang mga barya sa bulsa.

    Ngayon pa lang magte-training e ang tatanda na nila. Hwag na mag training at sayang lang oras at pera ng bayan. baka mangyari pa na nag -aral sila para matutunan kung paano iikotan ang batas. Dapat alam na ng pamunuan kung ano ang specialty ng bawat isa sa kanila kaya alam na dapat kung saan dapat lulugar. Maniniwala ba kayo na hindi alam ng pamunuan ang diskarte ng bawat isa sa kanila? Ang nangyayari kasi e kanya-kanyang delihensya at basta walang pakialaman walang kakanta.

    • batangpaslit

      Felix, training of police units must be ongoing, e.g., markmaship, martial arts, at ang iba pang sinabi ni Chief, PNP

    Dapat talaga taasan ang sweldo ng pulis at bigyan ng maayos na pabahay.Ito nakita ko sa ibang bansa. Pag nahuli ang isang driver na nag violate ng traffic rules bibigyan ng ticket. May palugit na 3 mos.ang pagbabayad at sa presinto magbabayad. Seguro naman may pambayad na yung driver sa loob ng tatlong buwan. Di tulad sa Pilipinas na pag nahuli magtatawaran na yungnpulis at yung hinuli kung magkano ba…….ora mismo bayad. jaywalking ganon din may palugit na 3 buwan para sa pagbabayad, kungdi mag report o magbayad sa takdang panahon may penalty. Meron ding pag nag violate ka na ng 10 times kumpiskado sng lisensya. Sa ganyang sistema maayos ang koleksyon ng multa. Magagamit yan sa pagdagdag ng sweldo ng mga pulis.Sa presinto dapat may bukod na lugar para sa mga cashiers at kailangan di pulis yung mga cashiers. Sa ganyang paraan maiiwasan ang kotongan.Dapat may cctv din .

    Congratulations on your appoinment, Mr. Alan Purisima. We’ll be watching you.

    Parang may alam si DG ah, how to oversees his Command.
    Training is important.
    Devoted tast or assignment is important.
    Removal of officers that are involved in criminal activities is important.

    Para mabawasan na ang ma recruit sa police force ay kawatan, ano kay, mag actively recruit ang PNP sa mga Criminology graduates at least fresh pa ang idealism nila?

    At sana, mabigyan din ang police ng livable income para hindi na mangurakot.
