City PNP seeks public help on screening new police applicants
The Puerto Princesa City Police Office (PPCPO) has urged the public to volunteer additional background information on some 28 applicants to the police force who are set take their oath this month.
“Natapos na ang processing sa kanila, nag-conduct na rin ng background investigation at wala namang nakitang negative sa kanila. Kaya lang baka [pa] may mag-pop up na information, ang hinihingi lang namin [sa publiko] na kung sana ay puwede na matulungan kami, para ma-reopen ang background investigation, magawan pa namin ng paraan. Para kung sakaling mapatunayan na mayroon talaga silang mga negative background, kahit na October 4 ang oath taking nila, kahit nag-start na ang training nila, puwede pa din silang matanggal sa serbisyo, basta mabigyan lang tayo ng solid na ebidensya laban sa kanila,” Senior Supt. Ronnie Francis Cariaga, city police director said on Monday.
Cariaga said the public verification is part of the process before the applicants take finally take their oath on October 4 as police professionals with the rank of Police Officer 1 (PO1).
This solicitation of the citizens’ response is to make sure that all applicants are “set apart, upright citizens, and equipped to serve the public,” he said.
Meanwhile, PO3 Analyn Labrador said they will be under the PO1 rank for a year until they become permanent in their job as police professionals.
“Dumaan din sila sa FTP (Field Training Program), dumaan sila ng agility, medical, neuro-psychological and physical [exams]. PO1 [na] po [sila] ‘pag na-hire. PO1 na, pero in temporary status. Idadaan pa sila, parang one year pa sila na temporary, bago sila ma-permanent as PO1. [Pero] PO1 din sila [after the oath taking],” she said.
Citizens can share their knowledge on the involvement in any illegal activities, particularly illegal drugs of any of the applicants.
The public may call or text 0977-8557-732 and look for Chief Insp. Freddie Taliman to file their complaints.
They can also personally visit my office to report, Cariaga said.
