PIA Press Release

PNP adopts one-strike policy for members linked to drugs

By VH Sarmiento

Dagupan City (3 February) -- A stricter one-strike policy is now being implemented by the Department of Interior and Local Government against members of the Philippine National Police who will be discovered guilty of having linkages with illegal drug operations or for giving protection to drug syndicates.

DILG Secretary Ronaldo Puno, in a speech in the 18th anniversary celebration of National Capital Region police office said, his office is now going to implement a resolution for the one- strike policy which is far more stricter than the policy for illegal gambling.

Under this resolution, an official whose jurisdiction is found operating illegal drugs like shabu laboratory, marijuana plantation and drug syndicates, will immediately be kicked out of his post and will be marked with a bad record in his entire police career.

The bad record will reach the National Police Commission and will be a hindrance for an officer to hold sensitive positions in the police force.

Puno said the policy aims to make police officials more hardworking and to show the people the government's serious and intensive campaign against illegal drugs.

Based on the Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 or RA 9165, any officials caught or found guilty of direct linkage to drug operations or found guilty of protecting illegal operators will be dismissed from service

Puno said the DILG and PNP will also conduct random drug testing to police officers and anyone found guilty will be fired from service and will forever carry his negative image. (VMHS/PIA-Pangasinan) [top]
