21 CL cops relieved over fake CSC eligibility

    CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – In times past it was fake diplomas, this time it’s bogus CSC eligibility. Rookie cops resort to, that is.

    Twenty-one policemen assigned in various areas in Central Luzon are reported to have been relieved after higher police authorities discovered the Civil Service Commission eligibility they submitted in their application to the PNP were fraudulent.

    Now remanded at the Regional Holding Administrative Unit, the 21relieved cops will also face administrative sanctions and even criminal charges, if warranted by the results of an on-going investigation, police sources at Camp Olivas here said.

    “We discovered this as early as last year and I directed the personnel division to coordinate with CSC because some policemen managed to enter the PNP using fake CSC eligibility,” Central Luzon police director Chief Supt. Rudy Lacadin said in a text message.

    Lacadin added that he ordered the Human Resource and Personnel Division (HRPD) of the Police Regional Office 3 “to scrutinize all documents from the National Police Commission and the CSC submitted by applicants to prevent future fraudulent enlistment.”

    According to Supt. Enrico Vargas, HRPD chief, the policemen with forged CSC eligibility applied from 2010 to 2015.

    He declined, however, to identify the involved policemen, explaining that “they remain innocent until proven guilty” and asked media for patience: “Let’s wait for the final result of the investigation before we name them.”

    For his part, Senior Inspector Michael Chaves, head of the Discipline, Law and Order Unit, said the irregularity was discovered in November last year, with Nueva Ecija having the highest number of offenders, followed by Bulacan and Olongapo City.
