MANILA, Philippines – The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) on Friday, June 29, launched its hotline for crimes and complaints against erring cops.

The NCRPO hotline numbers are 0915-888-8181 for Globe subscribers and 0999-901-8181 for Smart subscribers.

The NCRPO said in a statement that the hotline seeks to provide speedy police response to citizens’ complaints and reports on incidents in their areas, and to help the police in their internal cleansing program.

NCRPO Director Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar encouraged the public to use the hotline “for police assistance, complaints, suggestions and to report relevant information related to security and peace and order.”

“Every relevant information reported to us will be of great help to the police in responding, resolving, and preventing immediately any incident and security issues,” Eleazar said. 

He assured the public that all information received through the hotline will be kept confidential and will be immediately acted upon.

The NCRPO hotlines were launched days after President Rodrigo Duterte publicly lamented the results of a March 2018 Social Weather Stations survey that showed 1.5 million families reported falling victim to common crimes. 

The SWS poll results prompted the Chief Executive to order a performance audit on local chief executives in relation to their fight against crime, and also an audit of their confidential and intelligence fund supposed to be used in fighting crime. – Rappler.com
