METRO Manila police head Chief Supt. Oscar Albayalde will implement a major revamp among chiefs of police and station commanders who are not performing their task well in line with the government’s fight against illegal drugs.
Albayalde said he will replace those police officers in the National Capital Region who do not deliver in the all-out war against illegal drugs.
The police officer noted that Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa is not happy with how his regional directors are performing.
“We will remove all chiefs of police and station commanders na hindi makapagtrabaho nang maaayos despite sa ating no let-up campaign against illegal drugs,” said Albayalde.
Last week, Albayalde ordered all district directors to step up the implementation of Oplan Tokhang and Project Double Barrel in exclusive villages, condominium units and business process outsourcing (BPO) offices in Metro Manila.
He believes that involving exclusive villages and condominium units would lead to further cleansing of illegal drug personalities Metro wide.
Currently, district directors, chiefs of police and station commanders are coordinating accordingly with local government officials, and respective home-owners association in line with Albayalde’s directives.
The NCRPO’s accomplishment of Oplan Tokhang for almost two months (July 1, 2016 to September 2, 2016) yielded 41,819 surrenderers, arrested 4,065 and neutralized 297 drug personalities during legitimate police operations.
Last July, Albayalde gave the National Capital Region Police Office’s five district directors three months to clear their areas of jurisdiction of shabu and other illegal drugs. The 38 station commanders were given one month.
