New duty scheme for cops
implemented in Bacolod
City Police officer-in-charge, Senior Supt. Edgardo Ordaniel, said the new duty scheme for Bacolod police to boost their anti-criminality campaign took effect yesterday.
Ordaniel said that, under the new duty scheme dubbed “7-9-7”, policemen will go on duty at 7 a.m., 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Policemen will be fully utilized compared to the old duty scheme where they had two teams go on duty for 24 hours and off duty for two days, he said.
Ordaniel said the old duty scheme was ineffective because policemen became haggard and could not perform well.
Police Regional Office-6 Deputy Director for Operations, Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan, in a meeting with city and provincial police directors in Western Visayas, emphasized that the new duty scheme should be strictly followed.
Ordaniel also said he has been checking the banks the past two days and has found that some security guards are lax in doing their jobs.*APN
