Chief Supt. Debold Sinas, the director of the regional police station in Central Visayas (PRO-7), ordered relief from the staff of the Talisay City police station.
Only five non-uniformed employees (NUP) and Supt. Marlu Conag, the station's chief, was exempt from relief.
Sinas said the relief of at least 65 police officers was made after President Rodrigo Duterte's statement that most of the agents in Talisay City were allegedly involved in illicit drug trafficking.
The staff of the Regional Mobile Force Batallion at Central Visayas will serve as a replacement for the relieved police personnel of the Talisay City Police Station.
