The incoming PNP Chief reveals plans on how to crush the rampant crimes in the Philippines as ordered by the presumptive president of the Philippines, Mayor Rody Duterte. Chief Superintendent Ronald “Bata” Dela Rosa noted during an interview with DZMM that suppressing criminality is a tall order particularly the promise of the Duterte administration that in just six months he will suppress crime.
Mayor Duterte’s anointed top cop shared his two-pronged plan to stamp out crime, first is to bolster the intelligence-gathering from the public while policing the PNP’s own ranks.
According to the new PNP Chief he needs the public cooperation is crucial in efforts to weed out criminals, he also said he proved this as police chief of Davao City during the administration of Mayor Rody Duterte.
The 54-year-old, one-star general stressed that the public cooperation can only exist if the public trusts authorities. He was quoted as saying “Two-way iyan, ‘di ba? Kung ang pulis mo, credible, mapagkatiwalaan, ang kooperasyon ng ating mga sibilyan, mga kababayan, it will come naturally,” he reasoned.
The young police officer noted that to gain the public’s confidence he will weed out scalawag members of the 160,000-strong members of the Philippine National Police (PNP). Chief Supt. Dela Rosa said he already holds a list of policemen who are under tight watch due to their alleged involvement in nefarious activities.
PNP Chief Ronald “The Rock” Dela Rosa was a young lieutenant of the Philippine Constabulary when he met Duterte in 1986. Duterte was then acting vice-mayor of the city. During the administration of Mayor Duterte as chief executive of Davao City, he served as Chief of Police of the country’s largest but safest highly-urbanized city.
