Dumpit returns to Cebu City

SPO1 Adonis Dumpit is back in Cebu City.

Chief Supt. Noli Taliño, director of the Police Regional Office in Central Visayas (PRO-7), today said he ordered the return of the 53-year-old policeman from the Bohol Provincial Police Office to the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO).

Taliño, in an interview, said he approved the request of Cebu City Councilor Dave Tumulak, deputy mayor for police matters, to reassign Dumpit to Cebu City.

Dumpit reported to the CCPO last Monday, Taliño said.

The PRO-7 director said Cebu City also needs more policemen and Dumpit will surely help fill in the vacancy.

Dati naman siya na-assign sa Cebu City. (Dumpit used to be assigned in Cebu City before he was transferred to Bohol),” he said.

If Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña wants Dumpit back as his bodyguard, Taliño said the mayor should make a formal request addressed to Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa.

“Only the chief PNP can approve those kind of requests,” he said.

Dumpit, a sharpshooter and multi-awarded policeman, was released from the Leyte Regional Prison in Abuyog, Leyte last May after the Court of Appeals allowed him to post a P250,000 bail pending resolution of his appeal because he had served his minimum prison term of six years and exhibited good behavior during his incarceration.

Dumpit, then with the CCPO, was convicted of homicide by the Regional Trial Court in Cebu City for killing a 17-year-old suspected robber in Cebu City.

The administrative case filed against him in relation to the case was also dismissed by the National Police Commission, allowing him to return to the police service.
