POLICE GENERAL DENIES ISSUING BUSINESS CARD TO LAW BREAKER

The PNP high command reminded anew all personnel to exercise due diligence and discretion when giving away business cards.

PNP Spokesperson, Senior Superintendent Wilben M Mayor said business cards are purposely designed as essential tools for effective communication and should never be used for any other purpose, much more, to get away with a traffic citation, to peddle influence or to seek special favors.

“In case of doubt, law enforcers who will be confronted in a situation involving a name-dropping traffic violator should simply do their job of enforcing the law,” Mayor said.     

This developed as a ranking police official whose name has been unduly dragged into a controversy in social media involving a lady driver who posted his business card in social media.

Chief Superintendent Alexander C Ignacio, Acting PNP Director for Plans, who is currently on official mission abroad to represent the PNP in an international conference issued a statement to clarify issues surrounding the controversy.

“First of all, I categorically deny that I personally know Alyzza Agustin, who claimed that she used my business card to avoid getting a traffic citation,” Ignacio said.

He added, “the card which she posted is not an official PNP business card representing my office, my rank, and my designation.”

Ignacio clarified, “I am a Chief Superintendent (1 Star rank) and not a Police Director (2 Stars). Alyzza Agustin is not my Executive Assistant and there is no such position in my office.”

“I do give my business card to those who request it. But it goes with the implied condition that it will not be used to violate laws, to shorten prescribed procedures, and for illegal gain. I will not tolerate the use of my business card, the facilities of my office or the privileges of my rank for unlawful purposes” Ignacio said.

Ignacio appealed to netizens to be more circumspect in passing judgment thru social media particularly on the basis of unverified and inaccurate information.

“I am currently in Malaysia giving a presentation for the Philippine National Police for an Aseanapol conference and that is why I could not respond sooner.” Ignacio said.(PNP-PIO)

PURISIMA: SMEAR CAMPAIGN MEANT TO BLOCK REFORMS AT PNP

Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Director General Alan La Madrid Purisima told a Senate panel on Tuesday that he had become a target of an organized smear campaign to block the reforms he had put in place within the police force, particularly in fighting corruption in the processing of gun permits.

Appearing before the Senate Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs chaired by Sen. Grace Poe, Purisima said the syndicates operating within the Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO) of the PNP that were stripped of their “businesses” were going after his neck.

Prior to reforms he had instituted, Purisima said the FEO was a corruption-riddled office that allowed the proliferation of fake gun licenses and permit to carry firearms.

 “Sa ating pagpapatupad ng mga reporma, madalas nating nakakabangga ang mga puspusang humahadlang sa pagbabago. Ang nais nila: Magpatuloy ang tiwaling sistema kung saan ang mismong proseso at patakaran ng kapulisan ay kanilang nagagamit upang pakapalin ang sariling bulsa,” the PNP chief said.

“Sa ating paghahangad na ayusin at itama ang sistema, may mga nawalan ng raket, kita at kabuhayan. Natural, gusto nila tayong siraan ngayon para maging business-as-usual ulit,” he added.

Because of the reforms, Purisima said, he was able to stop the issuance of fake identification cards and firearms licenses to security guards, as well as contracts that were not favorable to the government.

DONATIONS FOR PNP “WHITE HOUSE” ALL ACCOUNTED FOR

The PNP has clarified issues surrounding the Deed of Donation for materials and services used in the construction of the PNP “White House”.

“The construction project for the PNP ‘White House’ or the official residence of the Chief, PNP is above board. It is not a real property given to Police Director General Alan La Madrid Purisima, the incumbent PNP Chief, as a person but a tangible asset of the PNP that will be issued to future PNP Chiefs.” PNP Public Information Office Chief, PCSupt Reuben Theodore C. Sindac said.

Furthermore, the donors’ privacy and security issues had to be seriously considered, hence, their identity could not be immediately revealed.

As mentioned many times before, the White House was undertaken through a “design and build” project in line with the donors’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It was borne out of the need to replace the old “White House” which was badly damaged by Typhoon Ondoy in 2009.

According to the flood assessment by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) dated February 27, 2013, due to the topographic conditions of the Compound and its surrounding roads, the rain always flow towards the North-Eastern Block of Camp Crame where the “White House” is located and happened to be the catch basin of EDSA and Col. Bonny Serrano Avenue that causes flood during times of heavy rain.

PNP DETAILS EXPANDED FUNCTIONS OF “HONESTY” TEAMS

The PNP has been conducting its own internal cleansing campaign among police personnel over the last eight (8) years, consistent with the PNP policy on transparency, public accountability, and anti-corruption campaign.

According to Police Chief Superintendent Reuben Theodore C. Sindac, Chief of the PNP Public Information Office, “HONESTY TEAMS” were organized since 2006 purposely to conduct an intensive nationwide campaign against erring PNP personnel engaged in extortion or “kotong”, “hulidap”, mulcting, bribery, and other forms of illegal activities.

To complement operations of Honesty Teams, the PNP issued Letter of Instructions (LOI) “LINIS” on March 2009, providing implementing guidelines in dealing with PNP personnel who were reported to be engaged in any form of illegal activity. This is implemented to promote good behavior and utmost discipline within PNP ranks, eradicate misfits, scalawags and undesirables from the organization in accordance with the procedures laid down by existing laws, rules and regulations.

Upon instructions of the Chief PNP, Director General Alan La Madrid Purisima, the PNP Directorate for Intelligence issued a Memorandum on March 14, 2013 directing all Regional Directors to conduct lifestyle check on PNP personnel assigned with offices vulnerable to corruption from the Regional Headquarters down to Police Stations. To date, there are a number of PNP personnel, including star-ranked officers, who are undergoing lifestyle check validating that the said process is being practiced by PNP officials.
