The Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO) warned municipal police chiefs anew that they will immediately be relieved of their posts if their anti-drug campaigns are found wanting.
According to Supt. Ricky Delilis, BPPO public information officer, the police office will not hesitate to reassign station chiefs who will be deemed inefficient particularly in efforts to take down drug syndicates.
However, Delilis guaranteed that due process will be observed in the reassignment of cops found underperforming in their drive against crime.
These policemen will be investigated and will be given chances to explain themselves, but the BPPO will immediately have them shipped out should their underperformance be proven, Deililis said.
Previously Camp Crame assured the BPPO that replacements for reassigned station chiefs are readily available to take their place in manning police stations.
Delilis noted that municipal police chiefs across the province are currently being monitored.
He said that these ranking police officers are required to launch at least two anti-drug operations per week.
These operations could either be buy-busts or raids.
Last month, almost 20 chiefs of police in Bohol were relieved of their posts after the BPPO confirmed that they were less aggressive in their campaigns against illegal narcotics movement in their respective areas.
Other police chiefs who were reassigned last month had expired terms. (Allen Doydora)
