Internal Cleansing of the PNP in the ARMM Continues (NR 13-126)
 
          It has observed that the Police Regional Office of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (PRO ARMM) has been aggressively pursuing its efforts to cleanse its ranks of misfits and scalawags. 
       
         Less than four (4) months into the current year, sixty-three (63) of its personnel have already been dismissed from the police service. This figure does not include the seven (7) others who were dropped from the rolls due to prolonged absences. Relatedly, six (6) of its members were either suspended or demoted.
 
           The number of those dismissed is expected to rise further as a result of PRO ARMM’s continuing drug tests to determine who among its personnel are using illegal and/or prohibitive drugs and substances. Of the 562 who already tested, five (5) were found positive and are now undergoing Pre-Charge Evaluation proceedings.
 
             PRO ARMM has more than 7,000 uniformed members.
 
           When pressed to comment on these developments, the Regional Director of PRO ARMM responded: “Ang pulis na may dangal ay dapat bigyan parangal, ang pulis na hangal ay dapat ipatanggal. -Written By:  SPO3 Judith Ambong
