CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan — The Philippine National Police (PNP) takes strong exception to the sweeping allegation of sexual abuse of women by police frontliners.
“The PNP takes these allegations seriously because we respect women and honor their role in society. We will never tolerate any form of physical or sexual abuse against women. I strongly urge those unnamed sources to immediately report to the PNP and to file charges against suspected wrongdoers.”, Gamboa said.
PNP Chief Police General Archie Francisco Gamboa further emphasized, “The moment a police officer commits a crime, he stops being an officer of the law and becomes a criminal, a sexual predator.”
“In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have police frontliners who risk their lives on a daily basis. It is unfair that they become part of an unfounded generalization simply because of the criminal actions of a few.”
The PNP encourages victims or interested persons with information to share, to come out so we can investigate and take appropriate action against erring cops. (RONDA BALITA Online)
