  • Police Brigadier General Randolf Balonglong, deputy regional director for administration of Police Regional Office 1 in Ilocos Region; and,
  • Police Brigadier General Antonino Cirujales, executive officer of the Directorate for Human Resource Doctrine and Development.

Yu said PNP chief Police General Camilo Cascolan led the formal promotion rites and administered the oath of the newly-promoted officials at the PNP Star Officers’ Lounge in Camp Crame.

In the same statement, Cascolan said more police officials are expected to be promoted to higher ranks or higher posts as more senior officials will retire from the police service.

In previous television interviews, Cascolan said he is eyeing the promotion of some senior police officers including Metro Manila police chief Police Major General Debold Sinas, who still enjoyed the President’s trust and confidence despite the controversial mañanita last May 8, which allegedly violated strict quarantine protocols.
