PIA Press Release

Majority of Abra mayors want to keep their chief of police

by Maritess B. Benas

Bangued, Abra (19 June) -- Majority of the mayors in the province want to retain their incumbent chiefs of police.

This surfaced in a meeting with local chief executives called by Provincial Director PSSupt. Joseph C. Adnol last week to tackle the issue of peace and order and the role of the LCEs on police administration.

Adnol told the mayors they can now choose the COP they want. He explained the powers and functions of the municipal mayors relative to operational supervision and disciplinary powers over the local police. He made it clear to the mayors, the process involved in the selection of their COP where five candidates are presented to them from whom they will make their choice.

Many of the mayors present expressed their confidence in their present COPs and that they requested for their retention citing that they have already established rapport and bonding, and that a change or replacement would mean another period of adjustment.

"As much as possible, we would want our present Chief of Police retained because we have already somehow established our rapport and bonding", was the general reaction of the LCEs.

It can be recalled that some years back, the power of o local chief executives in Abra to deputize local chief police officers had been lifted due to the uncontrolled peace and order state.

Also discussed in the meeting are strategies to maintain peace and order such as the conduct of foot patrol, mobile patrol, and motorcycle patrol, and pulong-pulong or dialogue in the barangays by the PNP; empowerment of barangay tanod; conduct of municipal peace and order councils (MPOC), barangay peace and order council (BDOC), and establishment or re-establishment of Police and Barangay Outposts.
