The National Capital Region Police Office on Thursday directed all police community precincts in Metro Manila to ensure that their surroundings were clean and orderly.

Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar issued the order after conducting a surprise inspection of PCPs in the southern part of Metro Manila on Wednesday.

Eleazar said he inspected 10 PCPs in the cities of Taguig, Pasay, Makati, Parañaque, and Las Piñas and discovered that while these stations were clean on the inside, their surroundings were filthy.

“Cleanliness not only inside but outside is important. There are a lot of cigarette butts, empty water bottles, and candy wrappers during my inspection of these PCPs. I told them even if they have old equipment, as long as these are in order, the people will still find it presentable, especially complainants. The comfort rooms should not have any foul smell. It is important to have a good and clean working environment,” Eleazar said.

“I gave them a warning first. I told them to clean up and then I will go back. I talked to their chiefs of police and station commanders regarding the inspection. They should be watchful of the PCPs under their jurisdiction,” he said.

Eleazar said he would inspect 187 PCPs across Metro Manila, pointing out that one of his priority programs was the cleanliness of the stations and their surroundings as part of the internal cleansing program of the Philippine National Police.

“Cleanliness and sanitation in the police stations should be a standard. Police commanders should always make sure that the surroundings are clean,” Eleazar noted. “In general, I am satisfied but we can do more improvement. The people's trust will be restored if they see clean surroundings of police stations. What I mean here is exaggerated cleanliness.”
