Dela Rosa tells to cops to shun Christmas gifts

PNP Chief Ronald Dela Rosa is advising all policemen to avoid receiving Christmas presents.

He says, some people may want to show appreciation for some cops who have done good deeds in the community and therefore, send Christmas gifts.

“May mga pulis na may nagawang maganda sa komunidad, yung mga nakatulong sa kapwa,” he notes.

But he maintains, the act of receiving gifts by law enforcers from the public must be discouraged.

When it comes to police assigned in airports, Dela Rosa has strict orders: They should not greet airline passengers “Merry Christmas.”

Over time, this gesture has gained a negative connotation and is now commonly interpreted as a way for cops and airport personnel to solicit gifts and tokens from passengers.

Dela Rosa tells airport police, “dapat makunsensya sila!”
