National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) director Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar said that his office will look into the issue of insufficient gas allowances for the patrol units of different police offices in Metro Manila cities.

“Inaayos po natin ‘yan. Mali po ‘yon kasi ang ating PNP leadership, nag-aallot ng pondo para don po sa gas ng ating mga vehicles, even though ito ay nakalaan do’n lang po sa mga PNP-issued mobility assets natin,” Eleazar said in an interview with Radyo Inquirer on Wednesday.

(We are fixing these things. It is wrong, because our PNP leadership has allotted funds for the gas of our vehicles, even though these are intended only for the PNP-issued mobility assets.)

The NCRPO chief was reacting to claims that for 12 hours of operation, only P240 was provided for patrol vehicles and P80 for motorcycle units of the local police forces.

“Gaya po sa Quezon City, malaking bulk po kasi ng ating mga assets dyan ay provided ng ating local government unit.  Pero may corresponding gas allowance din po ‘yon,” Eleazar said.

(Just like in Quezon City, the huge bulk of our assets there are provided by the local government unit. But there is a corresponding gas allowance for that.)

However, he also admitted that the budget for patrol cars would not suffice, hence the creation of standby points, where authorities would stay put in an area.

“Pero kung talagang ima-maximize natin itong ating patrolling, ay talagang kulang po ‘yon.  Kaya ang ginagawa natin mayroon tayong tinatawag na mga standby points,” Eleazar explained.

(But if we really maximize our patrolling, it [gas allowance] is really short. That is why what we are doing is utilizing what we call standby points.)

He said that he would look into the matter and discuss the issue with police officers and local executives.

“Pag-uusapan po namin ‘yan, baka po kasi may allocation pero hindi naman tama ang pag-aallot nila ng pondo don, we’ll see to it na masunod ‘yon,” he added.

(We will discuss that and maybe there will be allocation but it is really not right the procedure of allotment of fund there, we’ll see to it that it will be followed.) /jpv
