GENERAL SANTOS CITY – The police regional command here has ordered the random inspection of all personal vehicles owned by police personnel assigned in Police Regional Office-12.
PCol Bernard Tambaoan, deputy regional director for administration, said some 400 vehicles owned by policemen assigned in PRO-12 headquarters and from various police stations in the province were subjected to random inspection by the PNP Highway Patrol Group as part of the internal cleansing program of the police organization.
He said that during the unannounced inspection at the PRO-12 headquarters here, eight vehicles owned by policemen were found out to be lacking pertinent documents after they assumed the car financing payment for the vehicles from the previous owners.
He said the vehicles were brought to the PNP- HPG regional headquarters at Camp Fermin Lira, this city while the vehicle owners-policemen complete the documents to show legal ownership of their vehicles.
He said as law enforcers, policemen should lead by example wherein they strictly abide and follow the traffic laws and regulations.
“The PNP hierarchy under the new PNP chief Gen Archie Gamboa is instilling strict discipline within its ranks to regain moral ascendancy in enforcing the laws,” Tambaoan said.
