Malabon City police precinct chief relieved

MANILA, Philippines ? A police precinct commander in Malabon City was relieved by the Northern Police District (NPD) for failing to resolve gang wars and shooting incidents in his area of assignment.

The relieved official was identified as Inspector Redentor Tabo of the Police Community Precinct (PCP) 3 in a report submitted by Malabon police chief, Senior Superintendent Roberto Villanueva, to Chief Superintendent Samuel Pagdilao Jr., NPD chief.

Tabo was relieved administratively pending an investigation into his alleged failure to put a stop to fights between rival gangs and shooting incidents in the villages of Longos and Tonsuya.

Pagdilao said in an interview that Tabo?s relief was in line with his ?three-strike policy? under which police precinct commanders who fail to act on three major criminal incidents will face sanctions.

?We want our PCP commanders to be aware that they will be held accountable and responsible for what is happening in their respective areas,? he added.

The policy, he said, applied particularly to cases of car theft, robbery, and shooting.

Pagdilao said that when these incidents occur repeatedly without any apparent effort to curb these through anti-crime operations, the police commander concerned would be temporarily removed.

The police official would then be investigated by the NPD to determine if he had been negligent in his duties, Pagdilao said.
