NAPOLCOM set to strip Mayor Guo of police powers

TARLAKENYO (May 20, 2024) — The National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) is set to strip Mayor Alice Guo of Bamban, Tarlac of all her power over the police.

This is the announcement made by Department of the Interior and Local Government Secretary Benhur Abalos this afternoon.

Abalos said he has ordered NAPOLCOM to conduct a proceeding for the withdrawal of the embattled local chief executive’s control and supervision over the Bamban, Tarlac police.

“Local officials have supervision over the police, so ang gagawin namin ngayon, I have instructed the NAPOLCOM to initiate proceedings for the withdrawal of the mayor’s deputization. Ibig sabihin nito, pagkatapos ng imbestigasyon na ito, with sufficient grounds, we would withdraw the deputization of Mayor Guo as the consequences of the privileges attached dito are revoked immediately, including its control and supervision of its local police,” Abalos said.

NAPOLCOM is waiting for the formal approval of the implementation order that will take effect immediately.

Two days ago, Abalos also asked the Office of the Ombudsman to suspend Guo over “grave misconduct and negligence of duty” about her alleged links to Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators in her town.
