MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) implemented a minor revamp in the 148,000-strong police organization on Wednesday, barely a week after President Benigno Aquino III appointed Director General Alan Purisima as the new PNP chief.

Purisima said the designation of five senior police officials to key posts and other future promotions in the PNP were a “grateful recognition by the PNP leadership of good performance.”

“Those who will support positive change towards genuine police service shall be amply rewarded,” Purisima assured senior PNP officers.

“(I call on) police commanders to lead their respective units in promoting the values of ‘Serbisyong Makatotohanan’ in performing the law enforcement and public safety mission of the PNP,” he added.

In simple rites held at Camp Crame, the PNP chief led the change of command in three directorial staff positions, a national support unit office and a regional police office.

Chief Superintendent Carmelo Valmoria, former director of the Caraga police office, was installed as acting director of the elite PNP Special Action Force.

Valmoria replaced Director Cipriano Querol Jr., Purisima’s mistah (classmate) in Philippine Military Academy Class 1981, who was designated as acting director of the Directorate for Intelligence.

Director Catalino Cuy, former head of the PNP Directorate for Human Resource and Doctrine Development, has been appointed as acting director of the Directorate for Personnel and Records Management.

Chief Supt. Juanito Vaño Jr., former deputy for operations of the National Capital Region Police Office, was named acting chief of the Zamboanga Peninsula police office, replacing Chief Supt. Napoleon Estilles, who was appointed acting director of the Directorate for Plans.

    Its better to adopt a wait and see attitude, after all these people are armed and dangerous.

    • batangpaslit

      hahaha….mahirap maki pag debate sa taong may hawak ng baril, eh?

  • pokpok22

    Kamukha ni ABNOYNOY si Purisima, pareho rin kaya ang mental condition? 

  • batangsulpok

    Normal na yan sa PNP at AFP na kung sino ang mapuwesto, mga bataan niya ang ilalagay para tuloy ang ligaya, kung baga, basta utos ni sir, sunod o pirma kaagad kaya walang pagbabago.  Kultura na yan sa serbisyo sa atin na halimbawang Ilokano ang Chief, halos Ilokano din ang mga bata, mga Tagalog, Kapampangan, Bikolano, Bisaya, Muslim at iba pang lahi ng Pilipino o nagsasalita ng parehong dialect, ganyan ang practice at di mawala ang bata-bata o palakasan system.

    • batangpaslit

      you mean, merong “regional defect” ang hindi na “promote” ni DG Purisima?
      tagasaan ba ang bagong Chief PNP?

      • batangsulpok

        Di ko alam kung taga-saan si Purisima pero dati siyang opisyal ng PSG nang panahon ni Cory, bantay yata ni Pnoy at 10 yrs. ako sa PA nang 1960-70′s kaya alam ko ang kalakaran sa AFP at PNP na PC pa noon at si Ramos ang Chief, sobra ang bata-bata system at palakasan na mahirap maalis kasi nagisnan na.

      • batangpaslit

        Bok, so Papa Alpha ka pala the decade before Martial Law was imposed.
        Saludo ako sa ‘yo.
        Dahil sa kapanahuhan mo, respetado ang miembro ng Armed Forces noon.
        Walang balitang kurakot, eh.
        Tama ang sinabi mo. Galing din ako sa pamilya ng pulitiku-militar.
        Ang elder brother ko, na short list sa pagka Chief, PNP. Problema, hindi sia marunong mag mano sa Ninong, tuloy, nag pa early retirement na lang sia dahil bigo sia sa kanyang paniwala about merit system.
        Sinabihan ko sia na alam mo naman ‘Tol political position na mag hari-hari dian. Sagot naman ni Utol ay: eh, paano kung ang kapalit ng pag amen ko ay isang utos na hindi ako maka pag hindi?
        Ang isa kong pinsan, sumangguni kay Utol kung tanggapin nia ang posting sa isang regional command sa Mindanao. Dahil delikadong assignment, meron siang monthly PhP1M discretionary fund bilang top honcho of the region.
        Tanong ni Pinsan kay Utol, ay: Ano payo mo? Tanggapin ko ba?
        Sagot ni Utol: Kaya mo bang bumigay ng wheels?
        Napa sit up straight si Pinsan, sabi, “Aba, eh, kung ang discretionary fund ko ay 1M per month, kaya kong bumili ng Pajero”.
        hehehe…
        May nagkuento sa akin, si Chief PNP daw ay pamangkin ni Secretary Purisima?
        Ang Acting Governor ngaon ng Cebu ay kapatid daw ni Secretary Almendras?
        Bok, siguro, magpalit na rin tayo ng apelyedo?
        Ano pa ba ang ‘di gamit na family names dian na naka upo sa puesto?
        Eh, si Puno, baka sia daw ang iluklok na bagong Secretary of Agriculture nang naalis sia sa DILG.
        Ay buhay Filipino…

      • batangsulpok

        Naka-10 yrs. lang tayo sa serbisyo dahil di ko kaya ang sistema ng promotion, assignment, training/schooling, laging may palakasan kaya kawawa ka kung reserve officer, kahit anong husay mo, nasa ilalim ka pa rin, basta wala kang kapit.  Isa pa, kasama ko sa kampo si General Garcia na naging Brigade Comptroller kahit 1st Lt. pa  at doon siya natutong mag-juggle ng pondo pero kung di sa U.S. Immigration na nahuli ang mga anak na may dalang $100,00.00, baka walang nangyari dahil halos PMAers ang may hawak ng AFP.

    According to Purisima, PNP officials who perform well shall be rewarded.  Did Purisima perform well before he was appointed as PNP Chief by Pnoy?

  • noyab

    mukhang mongoloid si purisima….bagay sila ng KKK nya…..

    • batangpaslit

      walang bearing ha….bilang hepe ng mga hepe ng pulis?

      • Ping Gonzales

         Natandaan ko rin sa panahon ni Erap noong mag review on rank cya at yong chief PNP noon ay pareho malalaki ang mga bodega nakakatawa he he sus ang paso nilang nauuna ang tiyan di mawawala sa isipan ko hanggang ngayon bwa ha ha

      • batangpaslit

        mahirap mauri ang kalakaran sa bansa natin. sabi nga ng isang write up ang pinaka mabilis daw mag respond na police force pag may report about hold up, bank robberies or whatever ay ang Phil Nat’l Police.
        Pag tawag daw, wala pang isang minuto andoon na sa criminal site.
        ‘Yon pala, sila pala ang lookout sa kasamahan nilang nang hold up at kung may naka timbre sa police headquarters, sila din ang mag abiso sa kasaman nila na humayo na dahil naisumbong ang insidente sa opisina.
        hehehe…

    Puro acting capacity lang :))

    • batangpaslit

      kaya nga, Bro, walang magawang concrete plans sa police organization eh.
      walang incentive, except mag smuggle ng dollar funds or mag overprice ng second hand chopper pero bayaran sa presyong brand new

  • disqusted0fu

    Purisima is just like his boss, full of rhetoric!  but the results stay the same, if not getting worse!
