New Police director surveys police patrols

The director of the National Police, Major General Ney Aldrin Bautista, told reporters on the afternoon of Tuesday, 3 October 2017, that the police are carrying out a survey to identify just what police patrols and its administrative units are doing to increase visibility and improve service in the different communities.

The top police brass indicated that part of the strategy employed by the new leadership is to guarantee that police agents will be on the streets doing “work that is eminently police work” he said when attending a meeting at the Senate’s Interior and Police Commission.

Major General Bautista said that this survey will help to determine the number of specialized police officers needed to perform functions that are different from those of the National Police. He said: “I cannot say that I don’t know where my men are. What I have to say is how I am going to make certain they are performing their duties.” This was possibly in response to the statement issued by the previous director of the National Police, Major General Nelson Peguero Paredes, who said he didn’t know where some 2,500 agents were.

General Bautista said that the internal survey should provide key information about the Department and he reiterated that there should not be any police officers working for private institutions.
