It’s gonna get personal: Bato sets sights vs. illegal gambling


PNP Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa said he would declare a “personal war” against illegal gambling operations once they’re through with the drug menace.

Dela Rosa made this vow during his first ever visit to Camp Simeon Ola in Legazpi City, Albay as PNP chief.

“Pepersonalin ko kayo. Mark my words,” he was quoted as saying in a Bicol Standard report Friday, September 16. Camp Simeon Ola is the headquarters of PNP Region 5 (Bicol) command.

Among those who heard Dela Rosa’s promise to wage a serious campaign against illegal gambling were local governors.

“Bato’s” visit to the police camp was in line with the 115th Police Service Anniversary celebration.
