National Capital Region Police chief Director Oscar Albayalde relieved on Friday three city police chiefs after he found their men sleeping and drinking during their night shifts in surprise inspections.

Albayalde’s decision caused a shakeup in Metro Manila’s police hierarchy, with outgoing Pasay police chief Senior Supt. Dionisio Bartolome to take the helm of Muntinlupa police.

Bartolome will replace Senior Supt. Dante Novicio, while Senior Supt. Noel Flores will get the Pasay police chief post. NCRPO spokesperson Kim Molitas said  San Juan City police chief, Senior Supt. Lawrence Coop, was also relieved “for failing to hit performance metrics.” Former Caloocan police chief Senior Supt. Chito Bersaluna will replace Coop.—REPORTS FROM DEXTER CABALZA AND JODEE AGONCILLO
