BRIGADIER General Rommel Bernardo Cabagnot is the newly-installed director of Police Regional Office-Eastern Visayas following the retirement of then-director Brigadier General Ronaldo De Jesus.
“I will also personally assess the operational readiness of our men on the ground. I am calling to our men to just do your mandate with utmost dedication,” said Cabagnot during the turnover ceremony at Camp Ruperto Kangleon in Palo, Leyte on Wednesday, August 4, 2021.
“My strong desire to go against the scalawags and erring police personnel. Ayoko nang nangungutong, sangkot sa ilegal na droga, gumagamit man, nagbebenta o pomoprotekta. I will hunt you down,” the police official added.
Prior to his new assignment in the region, Cabagnot was the chief regional staff of the National Capital Regional Office (NCRPO).
He is an alumna of the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA), “Tagapagkalinga” Class of 1991.
Following the directive of Philippine National Police Chief General Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar, Cabagnot stressed that all police personnel in the region must “do your job and do it right, guided by the principle of honest and genuine public service.”
He said he will continue the programs of De Jesus, who was also recognized for his 34 years of service.
The turnover of command ceremony was also attended by Lieutenant General Bernabe Balba, head of Directorate for Integrated Police Operations-Visayas; Major General Domingo Cabillan, deputy commander, Area Police Command-Northern Luzon; Brigadier General Ronaldo Mendoza, deputy regional director for administration; Lieutenant Colonel Hector Enage, acting chief of Regional Personnel and Records Management Division; Lieutenant Colonel Teddy David, pastoral office; and other regional police personnel.
