Text complaints sent to the text police hotlines of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) are not being taken for granted.

In fact, since June last year, the NCRPO responded to more than 29,000 text messages.

After it was launched on June 29, police hotline ‘I-send Mo Sa Team NCRPO’ has received a total of 29,073 Short Messaging System (SMS) in Metro Manila, a data from the NCPRO showed.

Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, chief of NCRPO, said 5,767 of the text messages were actionable or those verified to be true, as per a report from Manila Bulletin. 

He said 1,177 of those actionable SMS complaints were those who sought police assistance in responding to a crime or crime-preventive measures.

Eleazar added that half of the total verified SMS or 2,928 text complaints, are related to illegal drugs.

“This only shows how people in Metro Manila support the anti-illegal drug operations of President Duterte. That big figure which is more than half of the actionable text complaints is a manifestation of support and cooperation to our aggressive campaign against illegal drugs,” said Eleazar in the report.

Some 838 of the text complaints are related to illegal gambling that led to the arrests of illegal gambling supervisors and bet collectors.

A total of 481 of the complaints are lodged against erring policemen, 10 are related to extortion activities of government employees, nine are related to threats, 273 are related to the violation of city ordinances being implemented by the NCRPO since July last year, 14 are related to theft and robbery, 10 are related to wanted persons and nine are violations of election laws during the campaign period for the 2019 midterm elections, the report said.

Eleazar launched the hotline for NCRPO to act on complaints by Metro Manila residents and workers. The numbers are 099-99018181 for Smart users 0915-8888181 for Globe users.
