The Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO) is set to undergo a refresher course on legal requirement of conducting arrests and operations to prevent dismissal of cases.
Senior Supt. Neri Vicente Ignacio, ZCPO Officer-in-charge said that it was vital for the policemen to undergo a refresher course since many drug cases has been dismissed due to technicalities.
“We are faring so much in the war on drugs, but there are a lot of cases dismissed due to the technicalities and other concerns with the prosecutor,” Ignacio said.
Ignacio stressed that the refresher course would help the ZCPO in its fight against illegal drugs in the city.
The ZCPO is the topped police office in the region in terms of number of drug personalities arrested and cases filed in court.
