CAMP Alagar over the weekend reiterated its warning that non-performing police station commanders in the region are subject to the National Police’s “one-strike policy.”
The one-strike policy would apply to police station commanders found to failed to act against the proliferation of illegal gambling and illegal drug activities within their areas of responsibility.
“Kung wala siyay gakadakpan sa iyang area pero ang among mga tawo sa region nakadakop especially sa illegal drugs, then automatically kanang maong station commander relieved diretso,” said Supt. Surki Sereñas, Camp Alagar spokesman.
Sereñas however said the order to relieve the police station commanders would still be left in the hands of city and provincial police directors.
He also said the city and provincial police directors could opt to give the station heads another chance to improve their performance or else.
Sereñas said there are already areas in the city that have been declared to be free of illegal drugs but illegal gambling remains unabated.
“Busa mag maabtikon gyud ang mga station commander sa pagsumpo sa tanang matang sa illegal sa ilang [area of responsibility] para di sila matagaan og drastic action by relieving them,” Sereñas said.
