All of the hard work by National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) director Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar paid off after President Rodrigo Duterte recognized Metro Manila’s police force for its achievements in the campaign against illegal drugs and weeding out erring policemen.

Eleazar on Wednesday received two special awards on NCRPO’s behalf for being the unit with the “most notable accomplishment” in the campaign against illegal drugs, and “exemplar accomplishment” in internal cleansing operations.

The NCRPO chief received the trophies during the Philippine National Police’s 117th anniversary celebration in Camp Crame.

Eleazar, a member of the Philippine Military Academy Hinirang Class of 1987, was barely two months into his post as Regional Director of Police Regional Office 4A (CALABARZON) when he was appointed as NCRPO chief on June 1.

His intensified campaign against criminality and illegal drugs was credited for the 25 percent decline in Metro Manila’s crime rate in the first half of 2018.
