More chiefs of police in various towns face possible relief pending a performance monitoring according to the Bohol Police Provincial Office (BPPO).
Superintendent Ricky Delilis, BPPO public information officer, told DYRD Balita that police chiefs will be monitored as they carry out their campaign against illegal drugs particularly in implementing Project Double Barrel, the Duterte administrationâ€™s blueprint for its drug war.
A total of 17 Bohol police chiefs have already been relieved of their posts due to either the expiration of their terms or their deficient anti-illegal drugs campaign.
Most of the police chiefs previously issued new assignments were those less aggressive in efforts to eradicate big-time drug personalities in their areas of responsibility, Delilis said.
The Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 issued new assignments, effective July 20, 2016, to the chiefs of police in Alburquerque, Antequera, Dauis, Sagbayan, Catigbian, Corella, Candijay, Talibon, Sevilla, Bien Unido, Buenavista, Trinidad, Getafe, Bilar, Jagna, President Carlos P. Garcia, and Tagbilaran City.
Former Tagbilaran City chief of police Supt. George Vale was reportedly reassigned to the PRO-7 as his term had expired after holding the city’s top police post for more than two years.
Other than Vale, there are town police chiefs who may have expired terms, Delilis said, noting that the BPPO is currently conducting a validation to determine if there are others who are up for reassignment. (Allen Doydora)
