CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Supreme Court is going to obligate law enforcement agencies including the Philippine National Police to wear ‘body cameras’ during the search and implementation of warrant of arrest against suspected criminals all over the country.
This, after the Supreme Court, has approved to form a set of standards that would be observed during the conduct of anti-illegal drug campaigns including buy-bust operations.
Atty Brian Keith Hosaka, spokesperson of the Supreme said their agency is going to form a set of rules that would set as guidelines in conducting legitimate operations conducted by government forces personnel and operatives.
Hosaka said doing this would stop the people from doubting anti-illegal drug campaigns of the government which has already taken hundreds of lives of suspected criminals, who allegedly fired their guns which also resulted in their untimely demise.
Meanwhile, the PNP Regional Office 10 (PNP-10) welcomed the move of the Supreme Court as a positive development, since it would help erase doubts from the relatives of the suspects that their loved ones were really ‘salvaged,’ during buy-bust and other legit operations of government forces.
PRO-10 spokesperson Capt Francisco Sabud said that with this set of rules in legit operations, and with the use of body cameras, the people’s suspicions and doubts would be gone. (JCE)
