Last June 13, twenty-nine police officers in the region were sacked. Of these, three are from the province of Albay, three from Camarines Norte, three from Camarines Sur, three from Catanduanes, two from Masbate, six from Sorsogon, and nine from the Regional Police Holding Administrative Unit (RPHAU).

Deona did not identify the police officers. He only revealed that 28 of them are chiefs of police, while one is an intelligence officer. He said that once they have completed retraining, they will be given a chance to be reassigned. However, they will not be allowed to return to their old posts. If they fail thrice, Deona clarified, they will have to look for other jobs.

The police officers were evaluated on their performance based on three indicators: crime prevention, crime solution, and law enforcement.

The group will undergo retraining on June 18 to 27.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
