Philippine National Police (PNP) officer-in-charge Lt. Gen. Archie Francisco Gamboa has implemented a major revamp in the PNP after getting a go signal from the National Police Commission (Napolcom).

As OIC, Gamboa has limited power but the Napolcom, through a resolution, granted his request to reshuffle key positions in view of the retirement of some senior police officers.

“The following personnel are relieved from present assignment and reassigned to units effective October 20,” the document distributed to the media on Sunday read.

The document was signed by Maj. Gen. Lyndon Cubos, director for Personnel and Records Management, affecting key positions at the National Headquarters down to the regional level.

Maj. Gen. Amador Corpuz, former director of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), was named new Director for Directorate Human Resource and Doctrine Development (DHRDD).

Brig. Gen. Joel Napoleon Coronel, former acting Regional Director (RD) of Police Regional Office (PRO) Region 3, replaced Corpuz as acting CIDG director, while Brig. Gen. Leonardo Cesneros will be the OIC of PRO-3 while former DHRDD director, Maj. Gen. Mariel Magaway has been designated as Director for Intelligence (DI).

Brig. Gen. Tomas Apolinario, meanwhile, was replaced by Brig. Gen. Nicerio Obaob as acting regional director of PRO-Region 4B (Mimaropa). Obaob was former head of PRO-5 (Bicol Region)

The PRO-8 (Eastern Visayas) also has new RD after Brig. Gen. Ferdinand Divina replaced Brig. Gen. Dionardo Carlos who was appointed as acting director of High Patrol Group (HPG), replacing Brig. Gen. Eliseo Cruz who will be assigned at the CIDG.

Brig. Gen. Albert Ignatius Ferro, director of Drug Enforcement Group (DEG), will now be the acting Regional Director of PRO-5, and he will be replaced by Col. Romeo Caramat, former head of the Integrity Monitoring and Enforcement Group (IMEG).

Col. Ronald Oliver Lee from PRO-7 (Central Visayas) will be the new IMEG chief.

CIDG deputy director, Brig. Gen. Bernabe Balba will be the new district director of Manila Police District (MPD), replacing Brig. Gen. Vincent Danao who is now head of PRO 4-A (Calabarzon).

Danao replaced Brig. Gen. Edward Carranza who replaced Brig. Gen. Abellera Casimiro as Director of Logistics Support Service (LSS). Casimiro is now acting RD of PRO-2 (Cagayan Valley).

Brig. Gen. Filmore Escobal, former director of Police Security Protection Group (PSPG) will be acting RD of PRO-11 (Davao Region) while Brig. Gen. Marcelo Morales from PRO 11 will take over the post of Escobal as Acting Director of PSPG.

Brig. Gen. Anthony Alcaneses, former director of Aviation Security Group (AVSEGROUP), will be the acting Regional Director of PRO-5 while Brig. Gen. Arnel Escobal will be assigned as acting Director of AVSEGROUP.

Brig. Gen Joselito Daniel, Deputy Director of Police Community Relations, will be the acting director of Police Community Affairs and Development Group (PCADG), replacing Brig. Gen Rhodel Sermonia who will take Daniel’s post.

Gamboa also approved the movements based on the endorsement of the PNP Senior Officers Placement and Promotion Board. (PNA)
