MANILA, Philippines — Seventy-five police officers were dismissed from the service since March for involvement in various offenses, the Philippine National Police (PNP) said Wednesday.

PNP chief Guillermo Eleazar said the 75 ordered dismissed by the National Police Commission (Napolcom) were part of 166 erring police officers who had received sanctions. Of this number, 48 officers were demoted in ranks while 43 were suspended.

Eleazar, who serves as an ex-officio member of the Napolcom, said the sanctions imposed on the erring personnel prove that the “mechanisms to discipline policemen is working.”

“These 166 police scalawags who were sanctioned are proof that the police organization does not tolerate any wrongdoing or criminal involvement of our men,” Eleazar said.

Eleazar also noted that the administrative cases filed against the 166 “police scalawags” went through a thorough investigation and due process.

“We are targeting to further speed up the process in resolving administrative cases against erring policemen so we could immediately remove misfits who do not deserve to wear the uniform,” PGen Eleazar said.
