De Leon warns Central Luzon cops: ‘We won’t tolerate wrongdoings’
Central Luzon police director Valeriano De Leon warned all police officers in the region to steer clear of illegal drugs and other illegal activities or be removed from the service.
“May this serve as a stern warning to all who are still involved in illegal activities, we will never tolerate any wrongdoings and we will remove you from the service outright,” he was quoted in a Sun Star Pampanga report.
De Leon issued the statement after he scolded a police officer who was recently arrested during an anti-illegal drug operation in Tarlac City.
The Police Regional Office 3 chief said Police Corporal Geymar Orquero faces dismissal after he was arrested for allegedly peddling illegal drugs with two other suspects.
“Your actions were a complete betrayal of public trust and confidence,” De Leon told the detained policeman, according to a Sun Star Pampanga report.
During his visit at the Gerona Police Station on Monday, De Leon said Orquero will be booted from the Philippine National Police and will be facing both administrative and criminal charges.
He warned the personnel of Gerona station to toe the line and never to engage in any illegal activities, according to the Sun Star report.
