Davao Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio
DAVAO CITY, Philippines — “I think there are many equally qualified and competent cops in Luzon. They should not re-assign our policemen because Davao City is a very sensitive city.”
This has been the message of Davao Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio following the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) announcement of its plan to transfer several Davao cops to Caloocan City due to the series of allegedly anomalous operations several Caloocan policemen got themselves into.
The mayor noted it’s better to have many policemen in Davao City as the President frequently visits the area.
“The city is in very sensitive position because the President lives here. It’s too difficult to maintain the security and hold it together if we always transfer men,” said Mayor Sara.
Mayor Sara also called on PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa to release their data on the number of deaths in the government’s anti illegal drugs operations.
She said this would help belie fake news that the deaths in the administration’s war on drugs has already reached 13,000.
“More than a hundred deaths every day so it is clear that this is not true. So if I were a cop and told that there are 100 plus deaths a day, I will really say that is not true,” Mayor Duterte said.
“As policemen, they should release their data number of operations, number of people neutralized in the operation the way that we do,” she added.
The mayor said fake news spreading on social media creates a negative image of the Philippine National Police. – Victor Cosare | UNTV News & Rescue
