Reshuffling of high-ranking police officials possible

·1 min read

A POSSIBLE reshuffling of high-ranking police officials was believed to be the reason why all regional police directors across the country, along with Area Police Command commanders, were summoned to Camp Crame for a command conference with new Interior Secretary Benjamin Abalos Jr. on Monday, July 11, 2022.

Among those who attended the conference was Police Brigadier General Roque Eduardo Vega, chief of Police Regional Office-Central Visayas.

The agenda of the command conference, however, was not divulged, but a source from Crame said he did not discount the possibility that a reshuffling of high-ranking officials in the Philippine National Police will happen under the new administration.

The names that first came out as among the candidates for the top PNP post are PNP officer-in-charge Lieutenant General Vicente Danao Jr. from Davao City, Lieutenant General Rhodel Sermonia, Lieutenant General Rodolfo Azurin Jr., former PRO-Central Visayas chief and current director for operations in Camp Crame Major General Valeriano de

Leon, former police chief of Bohol and current chief of National Capital Region Police Office Major General Felipe Natividad, Major General Eliseo Cruz of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, and Brigadier General Benjamin Acorda Jr., chief of PRO-Northern Mindanao.

But according to Lieutenant Colonel Mary Crystal Peralta, spokesperson for General Vega, they could not yet tell exactly about the reshuffling as they are still waiting for an announcement from their head office.

"We were still waiting for that to be announced in a few days time, we don't know yet," said Peralta.

President Ferdinand Bongbong Marcos Jr. is expected to announce this week the new head of the PNP. (AYB, TPT)
