Filthy QC police station draws Bato’s ire
How can people respect the police with all these filth?
Philippine National Police Director General Ronald dela Rosa on Friday made a surprise visit at the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) headquarters, noted its filthy surroundings and ordered two policemen on duty to clean up the premises.
Dela Rosa had stopped at the police station on Kamuning corner Edsa after an inspection at Camp Crame and said that he had often noted how unkempt the QCPD headquarters was everytime his vehicle passed the area.
“This (police station) is very visible from Edsa. How can people respect (policemen) when they see the station is filthy?” Dela Rosa said, addressing reporters who had joined his convoy from Crame to Camp Karingal.
“Every time I pass through here, I see (that) it’s dirty. I had previously told the (police) to clean up, but now it’s still dirty,” he added.
“There is not even a bin for cigarette stubs,” Dela Rosa admonished two Police Officers 2, who were left at the station while their colleagues were in Camp Karingal for the accounting of police personnel.
“Clean that up. It does not look good. The (police) station is dirty,” the police chief told the two policemen whom he ordered to sweep the police station’s front steps and driveway littered with cigarette butts, candy wrappers and other rubbish.
Seeing the detainees inside the station’s holding cell, Dela Rosa briefly spoke to them, telling them to reform so they would no longer be in jail.
