Chief Supt. Conrado Capa, Negros Island Region police director, yesterday vowed to act swiftly on cases of policemen using prohibited drugs or linked to the illegal drug trade and that no one will be spared in the anti-drug campaign
Two policemen assigned at the Bacolod City Police Office have tested positive for the use of prohibited drugs. The PNP Crime Laboratory is scheduled to hold confirmatory tests on the drug results of the two policemen.
Last month, three policemen assigned in San Carlos City also tested positive for drug use.
On Sunday, former Police Officer 1 Reylan Dordas was arrested by operatives of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency during a buy-bust operation in Brgy. Hawaiian, Silay City. He was also arrested in 2014 for illegal possession of prohibited drugs and firearms in Victorias City, police records show.
Dordas is now detained at the Silay police jail, pending the filing of other drug-related charges against him.
Capa said he will immediately sign dismissal orders for policemen proven guilty of using prohibited drugs.
Since Senior Supt. Wlliam Senoron assumed command of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office on Jan. 10, more than P1.5 million worth of prohibited drugs were recovered in numerous anti-drug operations in the province.
Capa has ordered police commanders to sustain the anti-illegal drug operations, down to the barangay level.*GPB
