PNP-Bukidnon vows to heed ‘no-take’ policy
MALAYBALAY CITY (BukidnonNews.net/ 20 February 2020) – Heads of the Bukidnon provincial police expressed support to the PNP’s “no-take” policy, its nationwide campaign against illegal gambling.
The “no-take” policy penalizes those who take protection money and bribes from illegal gambling operators.
Police Lt. Col. Silvestre Asiong Jr., information officer, said PNP-Bukidnon fully supports PNP chief Gen. Archie Gamboa’s order against illegal gambling, illegal drugs, and other unscrupulous activities.
“This is a reminder to all stations and force commanders down to the patrolman and patrolwoman that we will not tolerate such acts and they may face criminal and administrative sanctions,” he said.
Lt. Col. Salvador Castillon Jr., force commander of the Bukidnon 1st Provincial Mobile Force Company, echoed this statement on Feb. 14.
Asiong also urged the public to report any PNP personnel involved in corrupt practices to the nearest police stations.
