Caraga police to promote 750 personnel

by Noel B. Najarro

BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 25 (PIA) -- Police Regional Office 13 (Caraga) is set to promote 750 of its police commissioned, non-commissioned officers and personnel in a massive ceremonial pinning of ranks rites during the traditional flag retreat ceremonies at the regional headquarters parade grounds on Friday afternoon, a regional police spokesman said.

Police Supt. Martin M. Gamba, chief public information officer of Police Regional Office said this is intended to be a morale booster to the police ranks. He said the police now implement its so-called “merit system” wherein those who are deserving appropriately receive their due, awards and promotions. While those who will be found to be misfits or rank scalawags will also be meted with appropriate sanctions, he said.

This years promotion program, according to Gamba will include police officers and personnel coming from: the Regional Headquarters (43); Butuan City Police Office (100); Agusan del Norte PPO (82); Agusan del Sur PPO (104); Surigao del Norte PPO (133); Surigao del Sur PPO (158) ; Dinagat Island Province PPO (20) and from the Regional Public Safety Battalion (47) which will total to 687.

A slot for 63 was also allotted to the National Support Units such as the Aviation Security Group, Maritime Police, CIDG, RIU, Crime Laboratory and other NSUs, he said.

Based on ranks, Gamba said that two (2) will be promoted to become Police Superintendents (Lieutenant Colonels); eleven (11) Police Chief Inspectors (Major); sixty-three (63) Police Senior Inspectors (Captains); thirteen (13) Senior Police Officers 4 (Master Sergeants); Senior Police Officers 3 (127); Senior Police Officers 2(39); Senior Police Officers 1(180); Police Officers 3(203) and Police Officers 2 (112).

According to the official, the rise by a notch higher from their previous status to their present ranks may mean an upgrade of the salaries and benefits of those who will be promoted. However, this may also set off a higher degree of expectations as to the dispositions of their respective duties and responsibilities commensurate to their newly attained ranks from the community, Gamba said.
