Sun.Star Pampanga - - STORIES! -

CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO--–Se­cu­rity Guard Rolly Ri­rao of the Depart­ment of La­bor and Em­ploy­ment Re­gion III (DOLE-3) was com­mended for his fit­ting ges­ture dur­ing the sur­prise visit of the Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion here re­cently.

The Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (CSC) an­nounced the con­duct of sur­prise vis­its of dif­fer­ent agen­cies and of­fices to as­sure ef­fi­cient and prompt ser­vice of state work­ers. No less than Com­mis­sioner Aileen Lour­des A. Lizada led the visit to var­i­ous gov­ern­ment agen­cies.

Re­cently, a video cour­tesy of the CSC was fea­tured on news and on so­cial me­dia and the DOLE-3 was among the agen­cies spot checked by the com­mis­sion.

Ri­rao, 59, is an em­ployee of CDM Se­cu­rity Agency. He has been posted at DOLE3 for 28 years now. “Mang Rolly” nar­rated that he didn’t even no­tice that it was a spot check by the CSC.

He fur­ther he said that he just fol­lowed pro­to­col when on duty: “Bi­nati ko po ng good morn­ing, pina-reg­is­ter ko po sa log-book at it­in­uro ang daan papunta sa front desk (I greeted them good morn­ing, ask them to reg­is­ter and showed them the way to the front desk),” Ri­rao said.

Mean­while, DOLE3 Re­gional Di­rec­tor Zen An­gara-Campita was not sur­prised of the re­sults of the spot checked con­ducted by the CSC. She said that all em­ploy­ees of the Depart­ment are con­stantly briefed of hu­man re­source poli­cies as to as­sure quick, cour­te­ous and ef­fi­cient pub­lic ser­vice.

“As pub­lic ser­vants we as­sure that we equip all per­son­nel to be re­spon­si­ble and ef­fi­cient in the de­liv­ery of ser­vices and we shall con­tinue to be an ac­count­able institution”, she added. CLARK FREEPORT---The Philip­pine Drug En­force­ment Agency (PDEA) is warning the pub­lic against un­scrupu­lous peo­ple in­tro­duc­ing them­selves as PDEA Of­fi­cers and ask for thou­sands of pe­sos’ worth of cell­phone load.

PDEA Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Aaron N. Aquino is­sued the pub­lic ad­vi­sory amid a re­port about scam­mers vic­tim­iz­ing one of the of­fices in Davao City last Thurs­day, April 4, 2019.

A spu­ri­ous mo­bile phone call was re­ceived by one of their staff al­legedly orig­i­nat­ing from PDEA Re­gional Of­fice XI (PDEA ROXI) that Re­gional Di­rec­tor An­to­nio E. Rivera and com­pan­ions will drop by their of­fice. The caller also asked for a cell­phone load amount­ing to P3,000.

The staff, who re­ceived the call, im­me­di­ately went out to buy the load. How­ever, af­ter the load trans­ac­tion was com­pleted, and when the staff called the num­ber, it was al­ready unat­tended. The staff then called PDEA ROXI to con­firm the visit, but found out that Rivera did not com­mit to any­one.

“Do not be fooled. It is a strat­egy of swindlers ex­act­ing cell­phone load us­ing the iden­tity of peo­ple in author­ity. They tried to de­fraud vic­tims by rid­ing the crest of the in­ten­si­fied na­tional an­tidrug cam­paign,” Aquino said.

The PDEA ad­vises the pub­lic af­ter end­ing the con­ver­sa­tion with a sus­pi­cious caller, to con­firm the ap­point­ment first by call­ing the of­fi­cial con­tact num­bers of PDEA of­fices and per­son­nel. “Im­me­di­ately re­port any fraud or scam car­ried out through phone calls, texts or in­ter­net us­ing the name of the Agency,” the PDEA chief added.
