Nartatez orders creation of Anti-Cybercrime desks in all Metro Manila police stations | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

Police Brig. Gen. Joe Melencio Nartatez, director of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), has ordered the creation of Anti-Cybercrime Desk in all police stations in Metro Manila in a bid to effectively combat crimes committed online.

“Cybercrime is the greatest threat among Filipinos in today’s technological era. The unprecedented threat brought by the evolving cyber risks must not be placed at ease,” said Nartatez.

In order to prepare Metro Manila cops in the intensified fight against cybercrime, seminars were conducted with a total of 223 policemen graduated in the Basic Cybercrime Investigation Seminar on Tuesday, Aug. 15.

He said the seminar is an NCRPO’s initiative to continuously equip its investigators with the necessary knowledge and competency in responding to cyber-related incidents.

Nartatez said they also established a Process Flow Diagram where the assessment of walk-in complaints, short messaging system (SMS), e- Complaint Desk, e- Complaint Text/Hotline number, and referred cases or through other means must be properly addressed by the duty officer or the duty personnel. 

“Police officers who have just graduated from the Basic Cybercrime Investigation course will now be designated to man the Cybercrime Desks in their area of responsibilities and will assist in investigating cyber-related concerns,” said Nartatez.

He said the establishment of Anti-Cybercrime Desks is set to cater to all cyber-related crimes including violation of Special Laws related to R.A. 9775 (child pornography) as revised under R.A. 11930 known as the Anti-Online Sexual Abuse of Exploitation of Children (OSAEC) and Anti-Child Sexual Abuse or Exploitation Materials (CSAEM) Act of 2022.
