PD Fama ready to go

Stressing that incoming Philippine National Po lice commander Chief Supt. Ronald “Bato” de la Rosa” must be given the prerogative to conduct a massive reorganization of top police officials; Negros Oriental Police Provincial Director Sr. Supt. Harris R. Fama indicated he is ready to follow orders that may even cause his relief here.

Fama said that it is normal and even expected that any incoming PNP Commander would cause a massive reorganization and place key officials who enjoy his confidence to be effective.

Earlier De la Rosa warned that the endorsement of the Governors and mayors will no longer become a factor in the impending reshuffling of top officials including regional and provincial directors.

It has been the practice for mayors, governors and even congressmen to lobby the assignment or relief of police officials. In fact, the PNP has to submit a list of at least five nominees for chief-of-police or provincial from which the mayor or governor can choose from.

However, De la Rosa has decided that the policy must be stopped to ensure that the police officials shall have complete loyalty and dedication in carrying out orders to stop all forms of criminality particularly illegal drugs and gambling.

But the PNP’s top brass will have the last say and like a good and professional soldier, Fama is certain to follow any instruction from the national headquarters. (By Dems Demecillo)
