The Fourth Quarter 2019 Social Weather Survey (SWS) found that 78% of Filipinos believe there are ninja cops in the police force.

The survey was conducted from December 13-16, 2019 where 1,200 adults, ages 18 years old and above, were interviewed nationwide.

“78% of Filipino adults believe the accusation that there are ‘ninja cops’ among members of the police force. Seven percent do not believe the accusation, while 15% are undecided about the matter,” the survey reads.

Meanwhile, 23% of Filipinos say there are very many ‘ninja cops’ in the police force, 44% somewhat many, 28% a little, and 3% almost none.

The term ‘ninja cops’ was first heard when 13 cops reportedly recycled illegal drugs confiscated from an operation in Mexico, Pampanga. The issue also tagged former PNP chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde.
