MANILA, Philippines — Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar has been designated as the next chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP), Malacañang said Wednesday.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said President Rodrigo Duterte has signed Eleazar’s appointment as the next top cop.

He will replace Police General Debold Sinas who will retire on May 8.

“Gen. Eleazar’s track record of professionalism, dedication, and integrity speaks for itself,” Roque said.

“We are therefore confident that he will continue the reform initiatives of his predecessors and lead the police organization to greater heights,” he added.

In a separate statement, Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año welcomed the appointment of Eleazar, whom he said is “very qualified for the job.”

Año, who chairs the National Police Commission, earlier said he only recommended one name to replace Sinas.

“Through a NAPOLCOM resolution, Eleazar was recommended to be the next Chief PNP based on seniority, merit, service reputation, and competence to lead the Police Force,” he said.

“I expect PLt Gen Eleazar to lead the PNP Organization to greater heights amidst the pandemic during these challenging times,” he added.

Eleazar thanked Duterte for choosing him as the next leader of the PNP.

“To be appointed as the Chief PNP is a rare opportunity, but come with the challenges of good leadership and meeting the high expectations of the Filipino people. I accept these challenges,” he said.

“I express my sincerest gratitude to our Commander-In-Chief, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, for choosing me to be among the instruments of his genuine intention of a having a well-disciplined and professional police force that could always be banked on in enforcing the law and in serving and protecting the Filipino people,” he added.

He also expressed gratitude to Año for “always believing in my capability to lead the more than 220,000-strong” police force.

“At higit sa lahat ay nagpapasalamat ako sa Poong Maykapal sa pambihirang pagkakataon na ibinigay niya sa akin upang pagsilbihan ang aking kapwa Pilipino,” he added.

Eleazar will serve as PNP chief for about six months before he reaches the mandatory retirement age of 56 on Nov. 13.

Aileen Cerrudo   •   June 24, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief PGen. Guillermo Eleazar on Thursday (June 24) signed the dismissal order of PMSgt. Hensie Zinampan, the policeman in the viral video of the killing of a 52-year old woman in Quezon City on May 31.

“Today, I signed the dismissal order of Police Master Sergeant Hensie Zinampan who was found guilty of Grave Misconduct and Conduct Unbecoming of a Police Officer in connection with the killing of 52-year old Lilybeth Valdez on May 31, 2021,” said Eleazar in a PNP statement.

Zinampan is currently detained and is facing murder charges.

With the dismissal, the PNP said Zinampan will no longer receive any benefits from the agency. The PNP also said that his dismissal is proof that the agency does not condone abuse and wrongdoings among the police ranks.

“The PNP made sure that the entire summary dismissal proceedings followed the existing procedures and policies in order to prevent technicalities that may only be taken advantage of by PMS Zinampan to be reinstated in the police organization,” according to the statement.

Eleazar said that Zinampan’s dismissal should serve as a warning to all PNP personnel and that each police officer should live up to the three important and meaningful words in the PNP Seal—Service, Honor, and Justice. AAC

PNP-IAS recommends dismissal of cop who shot woman dead in QC

Robie de Guzman   •   June 24, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police Internal Affairs Service (PNP-IAS) has sought the dismissal of a cop who fatally shot a 52-year old woman in Quezon City last May, police chief General Guillermo Eleazar said.

In a statement on Wednesday, Eleazar said he received information about the PNP-IAS recommendation on the case of Police Master Sergeant Hensie Zinampan who is facing investigation for the killing of victim Lilybeth Valdez last May 31.

Eleazar said he has yet to receive a copy of the IAS resolution but he reiterated his vow to uphold the recommendation.

“As a matter of procedure and policy, all IAS Resolutions pass through the Discipline, Law and Order Division (DLOD) which is under the Directorate for Personnel Records and Management (DPRM). It is the DLOD, DPRM which is mandated to review, and draft the decision, on all IAS recommendations before they are forwarded to the Office of the Chief PNP for approval,” he said.

Zinampan was caught in a video confronting the victim in Barangay Greater Fairview, Quezon City on the night of May 31. The video showed the policeman drawing his gun before grabbing the victim by her hair and shooting her in the head.

The PNP chief said he has directed the DPRM to expedite the review and drafting of the decision on Zinampan’s case.

“But just what I stated before, I will uphold whatever the recommendation of the IAS with regard to this case,” he said.
