New police provincial director to assume post Monday-A A +A
Sunday, July 15, 2012
LINGAYEN -- Police Senior Superintendent Mariano Luis Verzosa Jr. will finally assume as officer-in-charge police provincial director of Pangasinan on Monday.
Police Regional Office (PRO) 1 Director Franklin Jesus Bucayu said there will be no formal turnover ceremony, as Verzosa will be taking over the post also from an officer-in-charge, Police Superintendent Michael Nicolas.
It is expected, though, that Verzosa will lead the regular Monday flag raising program at the provincial command, and later a command conference with Pangasinan’s 48 chiefs of police.
Bucayu said a new chief will be designated to replace Verzosa as head of the Regional Intelligence Division.
Verzosa, in an interview, said he is confident that he can easily adjust to his new post since he used to be a subordinate of Governor Amado Espino Jr. when the latter was police provincial director and regional director.
Verzosa previously headed the firearms and explosives division of the Pangasinan Police Provincial Office before his designation as chief of police of Dagupan. He was later transferred to PRO-1.
“Alam naman ninyo kung papaano kami pukpukin sa trabaho noon as his subordinates,” Versoza said, adding that working with his former superior will not be hard anymore as he knows already what the governor wants to accomplish.
Verzosa is a member of the Philippine Military Academy “Maharlika Class of 1984.” He is a native of Lingayen town.
He said earlier that he was happy to be given an opportunity to serve his province as provincial director before he retires from the police service more than a year from now. (Sunnex)
