They might willingly change places with their beleaguered Manila SWAT comrades anytime.

At least 25 Negros Oriental police officers are in danger of being dismissed from the service not because of another bungled hostage rescue but because of charges that they failed to fulfill their duties to their families.{{more}}

Most of the complainants against the policemen are their wives, who have lodged their complaint before the office of the PNP Provincial Director at Camp Fernandez in Agan-an, Sibulan town.

Sr. Supt. Augusto Marquez, Negros Oriental provincial police director, said cases involving extra-marital affairs are among the most common for police officers, especially those assigned in distant areas.

He said that while he encourages police officers to be true and honest to their marriage vows, he is trying to resolve the issues because they affect the performance of a police officer.

“It is important for them to be responsible fathers by not abandoning their children,” Marquez said

Among the complaints filed are those from wives of police officers assigned in the Dumaguete, San Jose, Ayungon, Tayasan, Canlaon and Basay police stations.

Meanwhile, Marquez challenged the investigation branch to fast-track the probe of cases against police officers. Some police officers have sought Marquez’ help after their cases dragged on for several years.

Marquez admitted that filing of cases against police officers can be detrimental to the officer concerned as it might cause his suspension or dismissal from the service.

All complaints submitted in his office were carefully reviewed and evaluated and those cases that require further investigation will be submitted to the Internal Affairs Service of the PNP. (PNA/MA)
