NCRPO Regional Director PMGEN GUILLERMO LORENZO T ELEAZAR was very dismayed when he learned that 4 Las Piñas cops were caught drinking alcohol while on duty around 2 A.M. at the checkpoint near a gasoline station along Alabang Zapote Road, Barangay Talon Uno during a surprise inspection by NCR- Regional Internal Affairs Service today.
PMGEN ELEAZAR ordered the newly appointed Chief of the NCR- Regional Internal Affairs Service (RIAS), PBGEN GERRY GALVAN to file administrative cases against the four cops identified as Patrolman Samuel Inoc and Corporals Alquin Orgen, Randy Danao and Robemar Abales, all assigned at the Las Piñas Police Station 6.
PMGEN ELEAZAR said, “the new NCR- RIAS Chief just assumed his post and I asked him to help me in the inspection and monitoring of our personnel and he did it.”
Southern Police District (SPD) Director PBGEN NOLASCO BATHAN, immediately ordered the relief of the four cops and their commander, PCPT GLADYS BIARE, from their posts.
PBGEN BATHAN said, “there is no place in the PNP for dumb and abusive cops like these. They are aware that we are operating under the Intensified Cleanliness Policy of the region as mandated by our Regional Director, PMGEN ELEAZAR. All our police men and women know this. They better take our Regional Director seriously because it is the right thing to do. Otherwise, face the grim consequences.”
For his part, PMGEN ELEAZAR added, “I ordered the immediate reassignment of the four cops to the NCRPO Regional Headquarters Support Unit (RHSU). They shall do camp duty till their cases are resolved by an investigating panel.”
The mere fact that they were drinking liquor while on duty and in uniform is in violation of a provision of NAPOLCOM MEMO CIRCULAR 2007-001 that prohibits any police personnel to engage in regulated gambling or game of chance while on duty; be drunk or disorderly while off duty; or drunk while on duty and in uniform or in a recognizable police uniform.
Likewise, this is a clear violation of rule #5 of the NCRPO 15 Do’s and Don’ts which states not to engage in prohibited acts, while on duty like drinking liquor, entering house of ill refutes and/or gambling dens except on official business.
PMGEN ELEAZAR explained that the actuations of the 4 cops are tantamount to grave misconduct and is punishable by dismissal from the service.
PMGEN ELEAZAR futher said that, “on-the-spot inspections will continue in adherence to our Intensified Cleanliness Policy.”
“Hindi ko hahayaang manatili ang mga bugok sa ating hanay. Lilinisin ko ang ating hanay sa NCRPO katulad ng ating paglilinis sa krimen at iligal na droga.”-PMGEN ELEAZAR
