Sun Star Bacolod - - Topstories -

NA­TIONAL Cap­i­tal Re­gion Po­lice Of­fice (NCRPO) Di­rec­tor Guillermo Eleazar has or­dered the re­lief of four po­lice­men who were caught en­gag­ing in a drinking spree while on check­point duty in Las Piñas early Fri­day morn­ing, Septem­ber 6.

Eleazar said he also or­dered Bri­gadier Gen­eral Gerry Gal­van, chief of the NCRPO In­ter­nal Af­fairs Ser­vice (IAS), to file ad­min­is­tra­tive charges against Pa­trol­man Sa­muel Inoc and Cor­po­rals Alquin Or­gen, Randy Danao and Robe­mar Abales, who were all as­signed to Las Piñas Po­lice Sta­tion 6.

The four cops were caught hav­ing a drinking ses­sion at a gaso­line sta­tion along Ala­bang Zapote Road while on check­point duty dur­ing a sur­prise in­spec­tion around 2 a.m. by the re­gional IAS headed by Gal­van.

“Nakipag-co­or­di­nate sa akin ‘yung bagong RIAS kaka-as­sume lang niya and ang guid­ance ko is tu­lun­gan ako in­spec­tion and mon­i­tor­ing ng pulis at gi­nawa na­man diyan nag-con­duct siya ng in­spec­tion. Tu­tu­luyan yan mag-file ng kaso ad­min­is­tra­tive against those cops. We also dis­armed them,” Eleazar said.

Ear­lier, PNP Chief Os­car Al­bay­alde is­sued an order pro­hibit­ing po­lice­men from drinking al­co­holic bev­er­ages par­tic­u­larly in pub­lic places as well as go­ing to night clubs and casino and other gam­bling dens.

Vi­o­la­tion of such order is tan­ta­mount to grave mis­con­duct which is pun­ish­able by dis­missal from the ser­vice./sun­star Philip­pines
