More police chiefs named

The reshuffling of town police chiefs in Negros Occidental continues, with the campaign period for local candidates slated to start March 29.

Police Inspector Celjun Nemenio yesterday assumed command of the Don Salvador Benedicto Police Station, replacing Senior Inspector Gideon Montano, who will be assigned to the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office headquarters in Bacolod City, Senior Supt, Celestino Guara said.

Guara, the NOPPO caretaker, said Senior Inspector Hector Balbon, Murcia police officer-in-charge, will replace Senior Inspector Mary Rose Pico in Pontevedra.

Chief Inspector Frankie Jingle Lugo has also been recommended to to replace Balbon as Murcia police OIC.

Guara said he also recommended that Senior Inspector Romeo Vargas replace Senior Inspector Gary Alan Resuma as La Castellana police officer-in-charge

Resuma will be assigned at the Negros Occidental Public Safety Company, he added.

Senior Inspector Arnold Mesias, former EB Magalona police chief, will command a PNP task force, Guara also said.

He, however, also said there are no replacements yet for the police chiefs of Isabela, Cauayan and San Enrique.

Supt. Gerardo Ulanday took over command of the Cadiz City Police Station Wednesday.

Guara, however, said the stint of Ulanday as Cadiz police officer-in-charge maybe short- lived, as he is due for schooling. He also raised the possibility that Supt. Noel Mana-ay will eturn to Cadiz, after serving his six months suspension order.

Senior Inspector Conrado Rances III had earlier assumed command of the EB Magalona Police Station.

Guara said it may take time to replace Chief Inspectors Eduardo Corpus and Gabriel Gutierrez as police chiefs of La Carlota and Sagay, because their transfers have to be approved by the Comelec central office.

He debunked claims that the transfers of the nine police chiefs are politically-motivated.*GPB
