DUMAGUETE CITY – There were about 600 new recruits of the Philippine National Police (PNP) intended for Police Regional Office (PRO18) or the Negros Island Region but after the dissolution, only about 80 have been deployed from the first 300 recruits and more than 100 from the second batch of 300 recruits which he said is unfair for Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office.
The Police Regional Office 7 (PRO7) wants an equal distribution in the number of personnel to be deployed to both provinces in the island region following the dissolution of Police Regional Office 18 of the Philippine National Police.
Espino said he will ask the national headquarters of the Philippine National Police (PNP) for equal distribution because the Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office (NORPPO) is also in dire need of personnel including mobility requirements as well as firearms. It was learned that the 80 personnel are the ones coming from Negros Oriental only.
From the usual ratio of 1:500, the present police force has a ratio of 1:1000 for a population of 1.3 million all over Negros Oriental.
Police Regional Office (PRO7) regional director PC/Supt Jose Mario Espino stressed the sharing of recruits should be 50-50 or commensurate to the population ratio of the two provincial commands.
