Several members and officials of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) will face investigation over the alleged harassment of a family in Taguig, according to the Philippine National Police (PNP).
PNP Chief PGen. Archie Gamboa confirmed that he directed NCRPO Director PMGen. Debold Sinas to look for properties under the PNP that can be used as quarantine facilities.
However, Gamboa said they will investigate how Sinas and several NCRPO members carried out the said order.
“The video would speak a thousand words that’s why we will investigate what happened during that confrontation,” he said.
A video that recently went viral on Facebook showed policemen dismantling barbed wires and tires from the front gate of a house. Arles delos Santos, who posted the video, is among the residents of said house. He is the son of Arnel delos Santos, a former Police Executive Master Sergeant.
According to Delos Santos, they showed the copy of the title, certificate of occupancy and Special Power of Attorney (SPA) from the owner. However, the police allegedly continued carrying out the eviction order against the family.

Gamboa explained that retired PNP members who are occupying PNP quarters will be given a month after their retirement to find another place to live in. This is to turn over the quarters to other active policemen.
“Officers and non-officers are provided housing and quartering facilities when they are in the service,” he said.
“But of course the agreement here, when you get a quarters here in Crame, the first requisite is, you have to be assigned here in Camp Crame. So if you are assigned outside of Camp Crame then you have to vacate immediately, but of course you have grace period of one month. Ganoon din ginagawa namin sa mga retired officers,” Gamboa added.
Meanwhile, Sinas said they had to remove the barbed wires and old tires since it was blocking the parking area and motorpool of the Southern Police District. AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
