PNP promotes 860 Soccsksargen police officers

by Dani Doguiles

KORONADAL CITY, Jan. 30 (PIA) -- The Philippine National Police conferred new ranks to 860 police officers in Soccsksargen Region in line with the Philippine National Police’s “Second Phase of Regular Promotion Program” that took effect last December 31, 2011.

Police Superintendent Resty Damaso, head of the Police Regional Office-12 (PRO-12’s) Public Information Office said, 99 police inspectors were promoted to rank as police superintendents while 761 police with ranks of police officer 2 (PO2) were promoted to rank as senior police officer 4 (SPO4).

New ranks were formally awarded to them during the oath-taking and pinning of ranks ceremony on Friday at PRO 12’s regional headquarters in Barangay Tambler, General Santos City.

Police Chief Superintendent Lester Camba, deputy regional director for administration exhorted the newly promoted officers to "stand by the responsibility of your current rank."

“Please do your jobs as officers of PRO 12, do your share and always remember what you have pledged,” he continued.

He also reminded them to make the promotion as a challenge to the junior commissioned officers and non-commissioned officers “so that by mere looking at your rank, they will be inspired to follow your tract.”

At the same ceremony, PRO-12 also gave honors and recognition to retiring members through a program tagged “Salamat Kapatid.”

Damaso said the activity for the retirees is a “ fitting recognition for the long years of dedicated and invaluable service rendered to the organization as well as to the country.”

“They truly deserve the honors and recognition for spending the best years of their lives in serving and protecting the country, he said.

In response, SPO4 Edison C, Sibal, most senior among the retirees, said: “I am very happy because I have achieved successfully my retirement age with pride and honor.

Sibal has been in police service for 33 years.

“I have done a lot of sacrifices in the discharge of my duties and responsibilities and this time, as I reap the fruits of my labor. I say that I have done a good fight especially in the quest towards integrated transformation,” he said.

Also awarded Medalya ng Paglilingkod as retirees were SPO3 Josue Lacuata; SPO2 George S Almeria; SPO2 Samson Cabato; SPO1 Noralito D Dionio ; PO3 Marvelo D Catolico; and PO2 Armetio D Carpio Jr. (DEDoguiles/PIA-12)
