A number of police personnel in the province are being monitored by the Bohol Police Provincial Office (BPPO) due to their alleged involvement in drug activities.

In its intensified drive to clean up its ranks, the Bohol police included cops in their watch list, and is conducting investigations to back the allegations, said Supt. Ricky Delilis, BPPO public information officer.

However, Delilis did not elaborate on the number of policemen who are suspected to be involved in illegal drug activities and the cops’ designated stations.

The BPPO is gathering evidence and validating current information through the counterintelligence officer of the BPPO as the local police moves to verify if the alleged erring policemen are still involved in illegal drug activities.

Individual investigations will immediately be conducted once enough evidence will be gathered against the said police officers, Delilis added.

A cop with a rank of police officer 2 who tested positive for illegal drugs last week is now being investigated by the BPPO.

Delilis also noted that it is very likely that there are more members of the police force who are involved in the said illegal activities as it could be the explanation behind the perennial drug problem in the country.

Meanwhile, there is a possibility that chiefs of police in various towns who have not implemented anti-illegal drugs campaigns will be relieved from their posts depending on the decision of the new director of the Police Regional Office 7, Chief Supt. Noli Taliño. (with reports from Allen Doydora)

    Focus not only on the police officers but to most of the mayors in the province, to mention especially the town of Getafe. The incumbent & the previous mayor of that town is unbelievably corrupt. The town is ruled by a dynastic corrupt family started by the father, who was once like a beggar. And the family is now enjoying a highly luxurious life not obtainable by just a salary of a town mayor, even if they have ruled the town now for more than 2 decades. Drug trafficking must be stopped in our province. Make our province safe & peaceful again!
