THE Quezon City People’s Law Enforcement Board on Thursday appealed to city residents to file complaints against abusive policemen in a bid to further improve the peace and order situation in the city.
The QC PLEB aired its appeal during a seminar held at its conference room.
Created through Section 43 of Republic Act 6975, PLEB works hand in hand with the National Police Commission.
Among PLEB’s powers are to investigate all administrative charges filed against any member of PNP and impose appropriate penalties such as suspensions or forfeiture of salaries, demotions, and dismissal from service of abusive cops.
A step-by-step procedure on filing a complaint against a policeman is discussed in the seminar.
QC PLEB Executive Officer Atty. Jeremy Madamba said that the office will process the complaints even without the presence of lawyers to represent the complainants.
“The citizens’ complaints being filed here, with or without the assistance of lawyers, can still be processed. We have our forms to assist you, should you encounter any administrative cases or if you want a venue for the redress of your grievances against alleged abusive police officers,” Madamba said.
