STATEMENT OF PBGEN VICENTE D DANAO JR ON THE ARMED ENCOUNTER IN CALOOCAN

THE WHOLE NCRPO MOURNS OVER THE UNTIMELY DEATH OF OUR COMRADE, PCPL DEXTER R TEVES OF CALOOCAN CITY POLICE STATION WHO WAS SHOT DEAD WHILE PERFORMING HIS DUTY ON DECEMBER 29, 2020 IN AN OPLAN SITA OPERATION CONDUCTED IN FRONT OF SUB-STATION 7 ALONG T. SAMSON ROAD, SILANGAN SUBDIVISION, BARANGAY-167, LLANO, CALOOCAN CITY.

IN THE SAME INCIDENT, ONE OF OUR MEN ALSO GOT INJURED BEFORE THE SUSPECT WAS NEUTRALIZED.

WE DEEPLY CONDEMN THIS INCIDENT. SUCH ARMED ENCOUNTER IS VERY MUCH UNNECESSARY ESPECIALLY AMID THE HEALTH CRISIS WE ARE FACING AS A NATION.

I CALL UPON OUR CITIZENS TO PLEASE, COOPERATE WITH YOUR POLICE. LET US AVOID CIRCUMSTANCES LIKE THIS FROM HAPPENING. STOP COMMITTING UNLAWFUL ACTS OR WORST, ENGAGING IN DEADLY ENCOUNTERS WITH YOUR POLICE.

THEY HAVE BEEN MANNING THE METRO AWAY FROM THEIR FAMILIES DESPITE THE YULETIDE SEASON TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY. THEY SPENT CHRISTMAS ON THE STREETS AND NEW YEARS  TOO. THE LEAST YOU CAN DO IS PEACEFULLY ENJOY THIS SEASON WITH YOUR LOVED ONES, OBEY THE LAWS AND BE SAFE SO THEY TOO COULD GO HOME TO THEIR FAMILIES AFTER THESE CELEBRATIONS.

TO THE FAMILY OF OUR FALLEN COMRADE, WE GUARANTEE OUR SUPPORT WHILE WE MOURN TOGETHER FOR THE LOSS OF A BELOVED HERO.###
