ILOILO City – There was nothing unusual in the recent reshuffling of police officers, according to the Police Regional Office 6 (PRO-6).
The revamp was not only because some police officers performed poorly but also because others already completed their two-year tour of duty in their assignments, said Chief Superintendent John Bulalacao, regional police director.
“We need to reassign some unit commanders and directors to give a chance to other officials to hold challenging posts. May mga police directors kasi na overstaying kahit maganda pa ang performance. We have to remove them to give other officers a chance,” said Bulalacao.
From the Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) as director, Senior Superintendent Henry Biñas is now the chief of the PRO-6’s Regional Human Resource Development Division.
The new ICPO director is Senior Superintendent Martin Defensor.
Biñas replaced Senior Superintendent Canilo Fuentes at the PRO-6’s Regional Human Resource Development Division.
Fuentes, on the other hand, is now the police director of Capiz replacing Senior Superintendent Samuel Nacion.
Nacion is now the head of the PRO-6’s Regional Headquarters Support Group vice Senior Superintendent Martin Defensor who has been assigned to lead the ICPO.
Guimaras also has a new police director – Superintendent Roderick Minong from the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6 (RMFB-6).
Minong’s post at the RMFB-6 was taken over by Superintendent Leo Batiles.
The former Guimaras police director, Senior Superintendent Julio Gustilo, replaced Chief Inspector Christopher Candelario as chief of the PRO-6’s Regional Personnel Holding and Accounting Unit.
The ICPO leadership turnover was held yesterday. For the others, it would be on Sept. 15.
Bulalacao said both Nacion and Biñas already exceed their two-year tour of duty.
Recently, the Capiz police office under Nacion was awarded as best provincial police office in Region 6.
The ICPO under Biñas also bagged a similar award in the city police office category.
Bulalacao said the reshuffling should not hamper the campaign against illegal drugs, illegal gambling and other illegal activities./PN
