Featured Ronald “Bato” de la Rosa Ronald “Bato” de la Rosa

PHILIPPINE National Police chief Director General Ronald “Bato” de la Rosa warned three Regional Police Directors to intensify their campaign against illegal drugs or lose their posts.

Dela Rosa said based on the assessment conducted during Tuesday’s Command Conference, three Regional Directors’ were under achieving in their war against illegal drugs.

The three are Police Directors from the National Capital Region (NCR),  Region 6 and Region 5.

Dela Rosa said the appointment of Regional Directors are in contractual basis and will be renewed after three months based on their performance.

“Medyo kailangan pa talagan magsumikap. From the very start sabi ko sa kanila may appointment to you in that particular position is on a contractual basis, meaning renew natin after three months, pag di ka nakapasa sa standard natin hindi na kita renew,” Dela Rosa said.
In line with this, Dela Rosa asked his men to double their effort to hit their target.
“Double time their efforts because we are already almost two months less from our six-month time frame, baka gahulin tayo sa oras, kaya ang advice ko sa kanila, double time, triple time their efforts para maging successful kami sa aming giyera laban sa droga,” Dela Rosa added.
He said by his own standard his men are performing very well but in view of the six-month timeframe some of them are lagging behind so they have to strive harder otherwise they will be relieved of their post.
“Kung ang babatayan natin ang aking standard, they are performing very well but still kung babantayan natin yung standard talaga ng six months, some of them are lagging behind so they have to triple their efforts otherwise magkakatanggalan ito. I will relieve them,” Dela Rosa said.
