PNP + LGU In the News

I read an Inquirer News article about the Philippine National Police {PNP} Chief General Oscar Albayalde talking about a city mayor who behaved childishly. The mayor was said to be irked because he was not informed of the promotion of the city’s current Chief of Police and the appointment of a new acting chief of police. He was also reported to have withdrawn support for the local policemen and cancelled a day’s worth of gas allowance for police mobiles.

National Capital Region Police Offce {NCRPO} Chief Major General Guillermo Eleazar confirmed later on that the government official who made such “childish acts” is Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro.

Childish Acts are Unacceptable
