A total of 9.66% or 104 of the 1,076 Caloocan City policemen who were relieved from their posts earlier this year have failed their retraining, National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Director Oscar Albayalde said Monday. He also disclosed that 49 failed after missing their drug test.

According to Albayalde, 972 cops passed the Focused Reformation/Reorientation and Moral Enhance for Police Officer in Line with Internal Cleansing Efforts (FORM POLICE).

The 972 who passed the training and received a grade of 75 and above were recommended to return to the Caloocan City Police force after they undergo a validation and evaluation process.

Meanwhile, the 29 cops who received a grade of 70 to 74 were among the 104 who failed. The 29 were recommended to be assigned outside of Metro Manila.

41 cops who received a grade of 51 to 69 were recommended for further retraining.

32 cops received a grade of 50 and below. They were deemed unfit to continue service.

Those unfit to continue training may file for disability, Albayalde said.

Two were absent without leave (AWOL) and will be considered relieved from their ranks.

Furthermore, the cops allegedly involved in the death of teenagers Kian delos Santos and Carl Angelo Arnaiz were not allowed to take part in the re-training.

They are on restrictive custody following the cases filed against them. “Itong mga ito na nag-training, walang mga kaso,” Albayalde said. [These cops who underwent training have no pending cases].
