National Capital Region Police Office  (NCRPO) chief Director Oscar Albayalde will be the next chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP), President Rodrigo Duterte announced on Thursday.

“Albayalde is the man for you. The stricter the better,” the President said in his  speech during the awarding of outstanding farmers, fisherfolks, and coastal communities in Malacañang.

‘That’s why I told Crame may bago tayong chief [PNP]. I’m going to announce it now, it’s Albayalde,” the President  added in his  speech.

President Duterte said he chose Albayalde as the next PNP chief over two other police officials.

“Si Albayalde lang sa PNP. Kasi tinatanong ko ‘yung mga taga-Davao. I mentioned two other names. Sabi nila, “‘Yan sir, mahusay ‘yan, sir, mabait,” he said.

“Albayalde is the man for you. So the stricter the better,” he added.

Albayalde will replace PNP Chief Police Dir. Gen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa, who was supposed to retire on January 21 when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 56 but had his term extended by the President.

The President said he extended the term of Dela Rosa “because he enjoys my trust and confidence.”

Dela Rosa will serve as the next chief of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) after his term as PNP chief ends.
