11 cops facing admin cases start manning city streets

ELEVEN policemen from the Regional Personnel Holding and Accounting Unit 7 will start manning the traffic in some Cebu City streets during rush hours.

The officers, whose ranks range from Police Officer 1 to Senior Police Officer 4, were turned over to the Police Station 2 of the Cebu City Police Office yesterday.

“You are now equipped to help with traffic direction and control. I expect you to be in your posts especially during rush hours in major intersections,” said Police Regional Office 7 Director Jose Espino.

The policemen are facing administrative cases for grave misconduct and being absent without filing a leave, among others.

Their c ases don’t involve illegal drugs.

Maria Theresa Macatangay, head of the Fuente Police Station, said that plans are already in place to monitor the police officers in their assigned areas. (JOB)
