Police chief to be relieved-A A +A
Wednesday, April 9, 2014
CHIEF Inspector Adonis Rosales, chief of Police Station 4 (PS4) in Bacolod City, will be relieved from his post after he failed to solve two successive robbery incidents within his area of jurisdiction.
Senior Superintendent Larry Decena, officer-in-charge of Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO), said Tuesday that based on his agreement with the 10 police station commanders, anyone who fails to solve two successive robbery incidents will have to go.
On Monday evening, another robbery incident happened at Villa Angela Subdivision, Barangay Villamonte, Bacolod City.
Joceleyn Amene, 53, told the police that about 7:30 p.m. she discovered that the padlock of their gates were destroyed. The burglars entered through a window by detaching the jalousies and took a digital camera worth P34,000 and a laptop worth P25,000. The suspect left through the main door and left the gates open.
Decena said he will hold a meeting for the issuance of Rosales’ relief order, which will be released this week.
He said more than two robbery incidents in the area of Police Station 4 have remain unsolved.
Rosales will be the first station commander who will be relieved under Decena’s supervision.
This should serve as a warning to the station commanders who are not performing to curb the robbery incidents in their areas, Decena said.
He also encouraged the station commanders to double their efforts to saturate their respective areas to avoid robbery incidents.
