The Police Regional Office (PRO-6) assured that it does not condone lazy cops, including those who are sleeping on their respective stations.
According to PRO-6 Spokesperson Superintendent Gilbert Gorero, sleeping while on duty is an intolerable act.
“We expect that our police will double their efforts now because their salaries have been increased,” he said.
From P14,834 monthly basic pay, the lowest ranking policeman now receives P29,668.
“Rest assured that sleeping cops here will be sanctioned,” Gorero stressed.
He said there is no reason for cops to sleep during their duty hours.
“They are not working 24 hours a day. They are required to render service for a maximum of 12 hours, “Gorero explained.
Last week, several cops in Manila were caught sleeping on the job.
These cops are now facing administrative charges.
Gorero said this should serve as a lesson to police officers in the region.IMT
