Some of the 50 policemen were reassigned to other commands and some were transferred to other regions in the country.

Reyes explained that he was directed by Philippine National Police Chief Director General Roberto “Bato” Dela Rosa  through Police Regional Office-Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Director Chief Supt.  Agripino Javier to carry out reshuffle and re-assignment of police officers and personnel.

According to Reyes, a police officers should be re-assigned to other places after they served for two years in a police station.

According to Reyes, Ramirez was listed by the police as drug suspects.

“ We record his personal status and took a mugshot. Ramirez signed a pledge and oath that he will stay out of illegal drugs,” Reyes said.

Reyes said that 5,534 suspected drug users and pushers yielded to his office since July 1.
