NCRPO reshuffles 3 police chiefs

MANILA, Philippines — Three police chiefs in Metro Manila were affected by the latest revamp in the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) in a bid to intensify the campaign against illegal drugs and other crimes.

Senior Superintendents Chito Bersaluna, Dionisio Bartolome and Noel Flores will take over today as chief of the San Juan, Muntinlupa and Pasay police stations, respectively, according to NCRPO chief Director Oscar Albayalde.

Bersaluna was sacked as chief of the Caloocan City police following the deaths of Kian Lloyd delos Santos and Carl Angelo “Kulot” Arnaiz last year.

There is no word yet from Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar, director of the Quezon City Police District, on who would replace Superintendent Christian de la Cruz, who was relieved as head of the QCPD Station 10 in Kamuning.

“We have yet to receive any order from the NCRPO regarding the relief of De la Cruz,” Eleazar said.

According to Albayalde, the four police officials were relieved as recommended by the NCRPO oversight committee headed by Chief Superintendent Greg Lim, deputy regional director for operation, for failure to deliver in the war on drugs.

“We have given them enough time to perform well but they failed to deliver. So we have no recourse but to transfer them to other assignments,” Albayalde said.

Lim said they would continue grading the performance of the 16 chiefs of police and 22 station commanders in Metro Manila on a weekly basis.

The NCRPO chief warned the 38 police chiefs and station commanders in the metropolis to shape up or they would be relieved from their posts for being remiss in their duties.

“I am warning them to shape up because we are closely monitoring their job in the war against illegal drugs and crimes. They should be on their toes all the time, otherwise they would lose their posts,” Albayalde said in an interview.
