PNP sacks 24 police chiefs for failure in drug war

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) sacked at least 24 town police chiefs in the Cagayan Valley region for their "unsatisfactory performance" in the campaign against illegal drugs.

Relieved were the police chiefs in 19 out of Isabela’s 37 police stations and 5 out of 29 towns in Cagayan.

Some of them were new in their posts, since this is the second wave of reorganization of the regional police since August.

Cagayan Valley Director Police Chief Superintendent Gilbert Sosa said the relief is upon the recommendation of the Regional Evaluation Team (RET).

In August, Sosa removed 22 city and town police chiefs in the region.

Sosa said the RET found the performance of the 24 town chiefs of police "unacceptable."

"We will continue to assess the performance of our chiefs of police to determine whether they can still hold their respective posts," Sosa said.

The most number of relieved town police chiefs are in Isabela:

Those relieved of their posts in Cagayan are the following:

 

No town police chief was relieved in Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, and Batanes provinces, which also belong to the Cagayan Valley region. – Rappler.com
