NAPOLCOM-6 starts probe on two erring Ne­gocc cops

Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

THE Na­tional Po­lice Com­mis­sion-re­gion VI (NAPOLCOM-6) has started its in­ves­ti­ga­tion against two erring po­lice of­fi­cers from Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal.

NAPOLCOM-6 Di­rec­tor Atty. Joseph Celis, said the cases of Pa­trol­man Bryn Jeph­tha Gi­motea, who was ar­rested for smok­ing mar­i­juana, and Po­lice Cor­po­ral Rom­nick Paci­ficar, who was in­volved in shoot­ing three in­di­vid­u­als, have been turned over to the In­ter­nal Af­fairs Ser­vice which will han­dle the probe.

Celis said the re­sults are ex­pected to be re­leased within two weeks, and if they find a prob­a­ble cause, the two will likely face ad­min­is­tra­tive charges.

The re­gion NAPOLCOM di­rec­tor fur­ther stated that his of­fice is the “su­per­vis­ing agency” of the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice, and it is un­avoid­able that some “bad eggs” man­aged to get into the po­lice or­ga­ni­za­tion. Last week, Depart­ment of the In­te­rior and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment (DILG) Sec­re­tary Ed­uardo Año is­sued a stern warn­ing against abu­sive and erring cops call­ing their ac­tions “un­ac­cept­able.”

Año also warned po­lice of­fi­cers and other uni­formed per­son­nel to pro­vide proper ser­vice to the pub­lic, adding, he will chase them down him­self if he dis­cov­ers they are in­volved in in­ap­pro­pri­ate or il­licit ac­tiv­i­ties.
