MANILA - No policeman from Davao City has applied for reassignment to Caloocan City, where some 1,000 troops were removed from their posts following outrage over the deaths of 3 teens, the capital's police commander said Thursday.

"Sa ngayon, wala pa pong nag-volunteer. Voluntary naman po iyun, hindi po sapilitan iyun," Director Oscar Albayalde, chief of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), told ABS-CBN News.

"Ang sabi po ng ating chief PNP, kung sino lang po ang may gusto."

The entire Caloocan police force was removed from their posts following the deaths of teens Kian delos Santos, Carl Angelo Arnaiz, Reynaldo de Guzman and Michael Remecio.

Delos Santos and Arnaiz, both said to have been found in possession of illegal drugs, were killed in separate incidents after they allegedly fought back against police.

Circumstances surrounding the death of De Guzman, Arnaiz's companion when he left his Cainta, Rizal home on Aug. 17, meanwhile, remain unclear. He was found in Nueva Ecija with multiple stab wounds, his head wrapped in packing tape.

Director General Ronald dela Rosa, the Chief of the Philippine National Police, said Wednesday that the invitation for reassignment to Caloocan was open to areas other than Davao.
