PNP-IAS men to be deployed to conduct surprise inspections of police stations

By Mario J. Mallari

To sustain the campaign against erring policemen on duty, the Philippine National Police-Internal Affairs Service (PNP-IAS) will deploy personnel to conduct surprise inspections on police stations to check on the readiness of the troops.
Director Leo Angelo Leuterio, deputy director of the PNP-IAS, said IAS Inspector General Alfegar Triambulo approved the deployment of IAS teams to sustain and complement the effort of National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Director Oscar Albayalde.
Earlier, Albayalde had relieved 18 members of the police stations in Muntinlupa City, Pasay City, including officials, after being caught drinking or sleeping while on duty.
“Our Inspector General lawyer Triambulo has approved the deployment of IAS teams to complement and sustain the effort of General Albayalde to keep policemen on duty to be really on duty, awake and alert, not sleeping on the post,” Leuterio said.
“I think it will work for the better of all of us,” he added.
The PNP-IAS is the primary unit of the PNP handling administrative cases being slapped on active policemen.
Leuterior said IAS teams would also be deployed in the regional levels to complement Police Regional Offices (PROs) in conducting surprise inspections in the future.
In the meantime, IAS inspectors will be deployed in Metro Manila.
Apart from checking on the readiness of the troops, Leuterio said the inspections were also meant to ensure that policemen are wearing proper uniform, including proper hairdo while on duty and their stations are clean, particularly the restrooms.
“Then we audit operations (we make sure) that they follow police operational procedures,” Leuterio said.
“How we wish that we can do this every day, every minute…but constraints and the challenges in our resources prevent us from doing such…we have to have an intelligence deployment even of our inspectors,” he added.
In spite of the recent relief of policemen caught sleeping or drinking on the job, Leuterio assured the public majority of the PNP members are still professional public servants.
“I assure you that the greater number of your PNP personnel are doing their duties and they are doing their jobs with dedication, if we go by the number these (erring cops) are a few,” Leuterio said.
