THE Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Thursday expressed full support to the newly-launched “E-Sumbong: Sumbong Mo, Aksyon Ko” system initiated by new Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Guillermo Eleazar as “this will significantly boost reporting of crimes and even violations committed by PNP personnel.”
“We support the initiatives taken by PNP Chief Eleazar to effect the change we want to see in the PNP. Sa pamamagitan ng e-Sumbong, mas mapapabilis ang aksyon sa mga krimen at sumbong mula sa publiko habang nililinis ang hanay ng ating mga kapulisan sa bansa,” DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año said.
The “e-Sumbong: Sumbong Mo, Aksyon Ko” system is an online complaint and monitoring system which allows citizens to submit reports, complaints, or concerns to the PNP via SMS hotlines, social media, email, or QR scanning method.
To send reports or complaints to PNP’s “e-Sumbong: Sumbong Mo, Aksyon Ko”, the public can contact the PNP through SMS (0919601752, 09178475757), social media accounts (facebook.com/OfficialPNPhotline), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and the web portal (https://e-sumbong.pnp.gov.ph).
Año warned the public to exercise caution and report only legitimate complaints or concerns. Pranks will not be tolerated and will be acted upon by the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group (ACG).
“We developed e-Sumbong because we want citizens to play an active role in crime prevention and solution and in ridding the police organization of misfits and scalawags. Siguraduhin po nating ang irereport natin dito ay totoo at hindi panloloko dahil baka kayo naman ang magkaroon ng asunto,” he said.
