ANTIPOLO CITY - The Rizal Police Provincial Office (PPO) announced yesterday the assignment of Supt. Emmanuel Placido as the new head of this city's police force. Placido's assumption as officer-in-charge (OIC) of the Antipolo City Police Office last Saturday followed the reassignment of its former chief, Senior Supt. Rolando Anduyan, to the Laguna PPO where he was designated as chief of police of San Pablo City. Sr. Supt. Rolando Anduyan said the transfer was part of the normal routine of the PNP and implemented before the deadline of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) which bans the transfer of a government personnel during the election period, which officially started yesterday.
