PRO 18 recommends relief
of 8 cop officers for drugs

The Police Regional Office 18 director, Chief Supt. Renato Gumban, recommended the relief of eight police officers from the region due to their involvement in the illegal drugs trade in the Negros Island Region.

Gumban issued the statement while in Dumaguete for the Regional Peace and Order Council meeting yesterday, presided over by Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo.

He said the eight police officers have ranks of superintendents and chief inspectors. Gumban said he believes that without their presence in the NIR, a lot of police officers, from Police Officer 1 to SPO4s, including senior police inspectors and police inspectors, will voluntarily surrender because their leader cannot anymore orchestrate the distribution of illegal drugs..
