* Cop kills cop

PNP Prov’l Director Dennis Agustin issued yesterday his stern warning against erring cops especially after the PNP image in the province was recently tarnished with the death of two cops who shot each other in Sikatuna town last Monday.

Agustin expressed dismay on what happened to two of his cops last Monday even as a full dress investigation continues on the incident.

The warning of the provincial PNP chief likewise came as preparations are on for the coming New Year’s Day celebration. Cops were asked never to do an indiscriminate firing of their guns to “welcome the new year.” The entire PNP command in the province is on alert to ensure a peaceful welcoming of the new year.
