(UPDATE) In a significant move, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) has dismissed ten police officers from service due to various administrative offenses. The decision, made by NCRPO Chief Joseph Melencio Nartatez Jr., underscores the commitment to upholding integrity and accountability within the police force.

The ten police officers, all stationed at the NCRPO headquarters in Bagong Diwa, Taguig City, include three middle-grade officers, a ranking officer, four police sergeants, and a corporal. The dismissals were carried out in accordance with General Orders GO-DS-2024-2441.

Identified as LtCol. Jolet Tutor Guevara, Majors Jason Domingo Quijana, John Patrick Oxales Magsalos, and Cpt. Sherwin Clete Limbauan, these officers were found guilty of grave misconduct, grave irregularity in the performance of duty, and grave neglect of duty. Additionally, EMS Arsenio Kayoyog Valle, Staff Sergeants Mark Jinon Democrito, Danilo Lasona Desder Jr., Roy Galang Pioquinto, Christian Cureg Corpus, and Cpl. Rexes Ursolum Claveria also faced charges of conduct unbecoming of a police officer, less grave misconduct, and grave neglect of duty.

The dismissal of these officers is reportedly connected to the illegal arrest of Chinese nationals in Parañaque last September. This action sends a clear message that the NCRPO will not tolerate any misconduct or abuse of power within its ranks.

Since President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. took office, a total of 985 police officers have been dismissed from the force. This demonstrates the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) unwavering commitment to weeding out “rotten eggs” and ensuring the integrity of the organization.

PNP Chief Gen. Benjamin Acorda Jr. emphasized that the dismissal of these ten officers is just a part of the larger effort to address disciplinary cases and irregularities within the police force. In total, 3,932 police officers have faced disciplinary sanctions for various administrative offenses and involvement in irregularities.

The NCRPO’s swift action in dismissing these officers reflects the organization’s dedication to maintaining public trust and confidence. Upholding the principles of accountability and transparency is crucial in fostering a safe and secure environment for all citizens.

It is imperative that law enforcement agencies worldwide hold their officers to the highest standards of professionalism and integrity. This case serves as a reminder that no one is above the law, regardless of their position or rank. By taking decisive action against those who violate the trust placed in them, the NCRPO sets a precedent for accountability and sends a powerful message to both its members and the public.

Moving forward, it is essential for the NCRPO and other law enforcement agencies to continue their efforts in promoting ethical conduct, ensuring proper training, and implementing robust systems of oversight. By doing so, they can build a police force that truly serves and protects the community, garnering the respect and support of the people they are sworn to serve.

In conclusion, the dismissal of these ten police officers by the NCRPO for various administrative offenses is a significant step towards maintaining the integrity of the Philippine National Police. The actions taken demonstrate the commitment to accountability and the determination to rid the force of any misconduct or abuse of power. Upholding the highest standards of professionalism is vital in fostering trust between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve.
