PNP says they will use the police records in reviewing courtesy resignations



The Philippine National Police said on Wednesday that the five-man committee will be using the records of the senior police officer who submitted their courtesy resignations in coming up with their assessment of the resignations of senior police officers.

“Pinahanda na po kaagad yung mga dokumento na kakailanganin po sa pag-screen at yung kanilang mga proseso kung paano titignan at susuriin yung mga dokumento na hawak na po ng PNP,” PNP public information office chief Police Colonel Redrico Maranan said.

At the Laging Handa public briefing, Maranan said that the documents will come from the other agencies.

The five-man advisory group had met twice already and had finalized the guidelines and parameters.

It will be recalled that on January 4, Interior Secretary Benhur Abalos asked senior PNP officials to submit courtesy resignations, as part of their internal cleansing against the illegal drug trade.

Abalos explained that this is “the only way to make a fresh start” for the PNP, when he expressed grave concern over the involvement of several high-ranking police officers in the illegal drug trade.

The advisory group is composed of PNP chief Police General Rodolfo Azurin Jr., Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong, Office of the Presidential Adviser on Military Affairs’ Undersecretary Isagani Neres, former Defense chief Gilbert Teodoro Jr., and former Court of Appeals Associate Justice Melchor Quirino Sadang.

Azurin earlier noted that they hope to finish the review in less than three months.

The NAPOLCOM will again assess the police officers to which the resignations will be accepted by the advisory group.

It will then be forwarded to President Ferdinand Marcos Jr for his approval.
