The National Police Commission (Napolcom) has further strengthened the police force with the approval of the restructuring of five police district offices in the National Capital Region.

Department of the Interior and Local Government Secretary and Napolcom Chairman Eduardo M. Año signed Resolution No. 2019-867 which approved the organizational adjustments and increase in manpower to further enhance the performance and delivery of service of the Manila Police District (MPD), Quezon City Police District (QCPD), and the headquarters of the Northern Police District (NPD), Eastern Police District (EPD) and Southern Police District (SPD).

NAPOLCOM Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Atty. Rogelio T. Casurao said there shall be an additional seven positions to be created for the rank of Police Colonel (PCOL) in each NCR Police District due to the upgrading of the rank of the existing six Chiefs of Support Staff from Police Lieutenant Colonel (PLTCOL) to PCOL and the creation of the District Comptrollership Division.

“The creation of a District Comptrollership Division in each of the five NCR Police District Offices is necessary to assist and advise the district directors in budgeting, accounting, financial management and internal auditing. This move shall promote transparency and accountability and shall ensure sound utilization of financial resources and prompt release of funds to subordinate units and personnel,” Casurao said.

The existing 30 Chief of Support Staff positions in the five NCR Police District Offices shall also be upgraded from PLTCOL to PCOL in consideration of the peculiar nature and complexity of policing in Metro Manila, as well as the decision-making responsibilities attached to the said positions and in recognition of the enormous tasks that Support Staff perform.

Also, these positions necessitate appropriate prominence for the exercise of authority on matters pertaining to the administration and operations of the NCR Police District Offices.

Under the new NAPOLCOM Resolution, there will be an additional three police stations and five Police-Community Precincts (PCPs) to be created under the MPD, which shall be headed by Police Commissioned Officers (PCOs) with the ranks of PLTCOL and Police Major (PMAJ), respectively. The total number of police stations under MPD shall be increased from 11 to 14 and the number of its

PCPs shall also increase from 42 to 45 to sustain the attainment of the existing 1:401 police-to-population ratio of the MPD up to CY 2023, which shall be 1:431.

For the QCPD, there will also be an additional four police stations and 12 PCPs.

The total number of police stations shall also be increased from 12 to 16 while the PCPs shall increase from 45 to 57.

Casurao said this is intended to address the 1,553 manpower shortage of QCPD and to increase its existing police-to-population ratio from 1:672 to 1:503 by CY 2019 and 1:533 by CY 2023.

A 117-man District Tactical Motorized Units (DTMUs) under the MPD and QCPD shall also be created as the operating unit primarily responsible in conducting patrol operations in major thoroughfares of Manila and Quezon City for sustained and intensified operations against motor-riding suspects (MRS) or “riding-in-tandem” suspects, anti-highway robbery, anti-hijacking, anti-drag racing, anti-fencing (i.e. through visitation of establishments of car parts dealers), and other street crimes.

Casurao explained the new policy also provides for the establishment of a District Anti-Carnapping Unit (DANCAR) in every NCR Police District to serve as an operating unit for sustained and intensified anti-carnapping operations.

The five DANCARs shall be headed by PCOs with the rank of PLTCOL.

Casurao noted 18,255 personnel complement will be needed for the five NCR Police Districts during the transition period of the full implementation of the restructuring.

Also, Casurao said an additional 113 Non-Uniformed Personnel (NUP) positions shall be initially occupied by Police Non-Commissioned Officers (PNCOs), subject to the approval and release of funds by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).
