Former Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO), Police Superintendent Noel Polines, was recently appointed chief of police for Silay City.
Following an order by Police Regional Office-18 (PRO-18), the reassignment was effective earlier this week, August 15.
In an interview yesterday, Polines said he gave his new personnel marching orders to rid the city of illegal drugs.
He added, there is also a matter of tamping down on the growing number of robbery and theft incidents in the city, along with a necessary internal cleansing of the police force itself.
Polines is also scheduled to meet with local barangay officials./WDJ
