Metro Manila gets 2 new district police chiefs
MANILA, Philippines – Metro Manila got two new district police chiefs on Thursday, June 14, as part of the ongoing reshuffle at the Philippine National Police (PNP).
PNP chief Director General Oscar Albayalde ordered the assumption of Chief Superintendent Alfred Corpus as the new acting chief of the Eastern Police District (EPD), and Chief Superintendent Gregorio Lim as Northern Police District (NPD) chief.
Lim and Corpus are Philippine Military Academy mistahs (classmates) of National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) director Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar. They all belong to PMA's 1987 Hinirang Class.

Corpus replaced Chief Superintendent Reynaldo Biay, who has been designated as deputy director of the PNP Directorate for Intelligence, Eleazar told Rappler in a text message.
Lim assumed the vacated post of Chief Superintendent Amando Empiso who is now NCRPO acting deputy chief for operations.
The reassignments follow the massive reshuffle of the PNP on June 1, when then NCRPO chief Director Camilo Cascolan was replaced after barely 6 weeks in the post. (READ: Metro Manila police chief loses post after 6 weeks)

PNP chief Oscar Albayalde earlier said the reassignments were made upon the recommendation of an oversight committee composed of top PNP officials. – Rappler.com
