MOVING UP IN POLICE FORCE

Arturo Cacdac assumes No. 3 post in PNP

By |


The chief of the directorial staff of the Philippine National Police (PNP), Arturo Cacdac, has been promoted to Deputy Chief for Operations, the third highest position in the 140,000-strong police force.

Cacdac assumed his new post following the retirement of Deputy Director General Raul Castañeda, who left the active service on September 30.

Both men are members of the Philippine Military Academy class of 1978.

Cacdac, who will get his third star, will be replaced as chief of the directorial staff by Director Emelito Sarmiento, the outgoing chief of the Civil Security Group.

PNP Director General Nicanor A. Bartolome earlier said there would be no “major revamp” in the organization in the first few months, only individual appointments to fill positions left by retiring officials.

Outgoing Secretary to the Directorial Staff Chief Superintendent Rodrigo de Gracia was designated the new regional director of Police Regional Office-2 (PRO2), replacing outgoing PRO2 Director Chief Superintendent Francisco Jose Villaroman.

PNP spokesperson Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr. also announced that Senior Superintendent Buenaventura Viray Jr. will be the new officer-in-charge of the CSG-Security Office for Security and Investigation (Sosia).

Outgoing chief of the CSG-Sosia Chief Superintendent Samuel Diciano will be replacing Chief Superintendent Alex Paul Monteagudo as head of the Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (DIDM).
Chief Superintendent Danilo Alcoriza will be the new Executive Officer of the Directorate for Research and Development while Chief Superintendent Danilo Constantino will take the position of OIC-deputy director of the PNP-Directorate for Operations.
The National Capital Region Police Office will also have a new regional chief of Directorial Staff in Chief Superintendent Juanito Vaño Jr., said Cruz.

Cruz said the officials were designated to their new positions in the police force by the Senior Officers Placement and Promotions Board based on their qualifications, accomplishments and service reputation. With Karen Boncocan, INQUIRER.net

    No wonder why our military especially the police force lack the intellect and capability to counter any insurgency and criminality problem because of promoting personnel to higher position who gained their experience in the office and somewhere else with more ambient atmosphere. They were always noticed because as much as possible they tend to cling to the pants of the politicians.
