PNP internal cleansing to continue
THE PHILIPPINE National Police have vowed for a continued nationwide no letup campaign against scalawags.
This developed after nine policemen of the Quezon City Police District were disarmed right inside their station after their alleged extortion to suspected drug pushers.
PNP Chief Director General Oscar Albayalde, who was recently in Baguio City admitted the police organization is still plagued by scalawags but intensified cleansing and counterintelligence operations are certain to clean the 190,000-strong police force.
"We are all members of the uniformed service because we have to follow certain rules, regulations and restrictions as part of our membership in the Philippine National Police," said the Chief PNP.
Albayalde added police personnel wanting to criticize him freely on how he manages the police organization should leave the service first.
This following at least 20 police personnel who have expressed their dismay in the PNP through the use of social media.
"If you are in an organization, there are certain restrictions. If you cannot follow rules, regulations and policies of the norms of the uniformed service, than you can get out of the service. If you want freedom of speech, then go out of the service,” Albayalde said.
Albayalde added these policemen is set to be investigated by the DIDM and charge
them with insubordination since backfighting is tantamount to insubordination.
The PNP top cop re- iterated the nationwide internal cleansing campaign of scalawags will continue with zero tolerance on violators.
