Anyone with poor work ethics has no place in the police force.
The Officer in Charge (OIC) of the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) on Tuesday said that the personnel who would fail thrice in the unit’s evaluation performance would be relieved from their respective positions.
OIC of CIDG, Chief Supt. Victor Deona said during a press briefing in Camp Crame on Tuesday that they would be conducting an evaluation of the performance of their personnel.
The CIDG director admitted that, at present, the premier investigating arm of the Philippine National Police (PNP) has around 1,012 personnel who are distributed in different parts of the country.
“The CIDG will conduct an evaluation on the performance of our personnel and those that will fail three times will be relieved from his/her respective position,” Deona said during the press briefing.
He said that the CIDG’s target list of wanted persons include seventy-five suspects who are behind the Maguindanao Massacre, the single biggest political killings in the country that took place on November 23, 2009.
The CIDG official added that, aside from the suspects in the Maguindanao Massacre, their list also includes eight criminal gangs and five syndicates involved in illegal drug trade operations in the country.
“If we have ten priority targets of Most Wanted Persons (MWP) we will assign one personnel dedicated only in tracking down the MWP…. And the only thing that he has to do is to track the MWP,” Deona said in the press briefing.
The OIC of CIDG said that an evaluation will be given every three months and the personnel who would fail to perform his respective tasks should undergo a mandatory one-month refresher course.
“If he/she has failed three times in his given task… I will immediately relieve him/her from the position,” Deona said during the press briefing.
“They will have minimum targets per month, then their performance will be evaluated every three months and those who will failed to attain the targets are needed to be relieved from his/her position,” he said.
Deona also explained that they still lack the appropriate number of investigators, and this was why every CIDG personnel would need to work well and carry out his mandated task properly.
