    CAMP VICENTE LIM, Laguna: Presiding over his first command conference on Tuesday, Police Regional Office Calabarzon (PRO4A) new Regional Director Chief Supt. Valfrie Tabian underscored his three-point agenda in the fight against illegal drugs and criminality.

    The conference was attended by Calabarzon’s top police chiefs and representatives from the Regional Public Safety Battalion.

    “As your officer-in-charge, I will see to it that the road map being laid down by the incoming leadership will be followed and executed down the line. We will create a working environment that will be conducive to an effective, efficient and well-functioning Police Calabarzon,” Tabian said.

    Tabian directed PRO4A to implement aggressive and tough police operations against illegal drugs, intensify their anti-criminality campaign and pursue extensive investigation of sensational cases.

    The plan covers vigorous operations that identify, locate and neutralize targets; launch crackdown operations; massive application of search warrants (using the ‘one-time, big time’ approach); and conduct buy-bust operations.

    Tabian also presented the plan’s second component that aims to gain community support through the establishment of an Information-Box System, a reward system and generation from the local community the Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council watchlist.

    The third component of the plan enforces a tougher stance in internal cleansing through counterintelligence operations; case tracking on drug cases handled by police officers; review cases filed against erring police; neutralize the identified user, pusher, protector and coddler; and conduct the regular random drug tests among personnel.

    A tougher stance will also be enforced in performance-based assessment of field commanders through weekly monitoring and performance audit of accomplishments, with the corresponding sanctions to be imposed by provincial directors on non-performing chiefs of police; and initiate the reward system; strengthening of Anti-Illegal Drug Units, through selective recruitment of personnel; and competency training.

    The new police regional officer-in-charge tasked the various police units to enforce the peace and order mandate consistent with the desire of newly-proclaimed President Rodrigo Duterte and incoming Chief of the Philippine National Police, Chief Supt. Ronald de la Rosa.
