CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga -- The current second man in command of the Police Regional Office (PRO)-Central Luzon assumed his post as the new officer-in-charge (OIC) on Monday, October 21.
Police Brigadier General Leonardo Cesneros replaced Police Brigadier General Joel Napoleon Coronel who was appointed as the new head of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Criminal Investigation and Detection Group.
“I would like to express my profound gratitude to our OIC-CPNP PLTGen. Archie Gamboa and new CIDG director PBGen. Joel Coronel for the trust and confidence he has given me and, with my gratitude, I offer him my pledge that I shall do my utmost best to perform my duties with the cooperation of every one,” Cesneros said during his first command conference.
“I urge everyone to extend to me the same support you have extended to PBGen. Coronel in my new capacity as your OIC, so that, together, we will continue to keep PRO-3 safe and peaceful at all times. Let us continue to maximize our efforts on anti-criminality especially now that we barely have two months before the 30th SEA Games. Let us also sustain the gains of our Regional Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict,” he added.
Cesneros is a member of the PNPA Tagapagtanggol Class of 1986. (PR)
