A REGULAR reshuffling at the Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) was implemented by its city director, Police Colonel Manuel Placido, affecting ten police officials effective Monday, January 25, 2021.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Ariel Pico, spokesperson of BCPO, on Monday said Police Major Jovil Sedel, chief of Police Station 1, was relieved from his post and reassigned to City Investigation and Detective Management Unit (CIDMU). His post was also occupied by Police Major Ramel Sarona, chief of Police Station 6.
Sarona's post was occupied by Police Captain Leo Estopa, chief of Police Station 2, while Estopa's post was occupied by his deputy commander Police Lieutenant Joven Mogato.
Police Major Charles Gever, chief of Police Station 4, was also relieved from his post and reassigned to City Plans and Policy Unit (CPPU). Gever's post is also occupied by Police Major Jun Ray Batadlan, chief of Police Station 8, while Batadlan's post will be occupied by his deputy commander.
Police Captain Armilyn Vargas of City Community Affairs Development Unit (CCADU) was also reassigned to Police Station 10 to take over the post of Police Major Ruel Culanag, while Culanag also occupied the post of Police Lieutenant Colonel Luisito Acebuche as head of Bacolod Traffic Authority Office (BTAO).
Acebuche was reassigned as head of BCPO Administration Office.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Lester Leada, of CPPU, was also reassigned to the City Operations Management Unit (COMU).
Police Major Sherlock Gabana, of CCADU, was reassigned as OIC-CCADU and HRAO. Police Lieutenant Christine Cerbo, of IDMU, also designated as assistant chief of CIDMU.
Pico said the regular reshuffling was implemented because some police officers were promoted and they needed to occupy key posts at BCPO.
He said the police officials were also directed to be effective and to comply with the directives from Camp Crame.
"Our city director expects that they will do their job to maintain the peace and order within their areas of jurisdiction," he said.
