4 out of 5 NCR police district chiefs relieved

MANILA, Philippines (2nd UPDATE) – There’s a shakeup in the command at the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), after Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas II approved the recommendation of NCRPO chief Police Director Carmelo Valmoria on Wednesday, October 8.

Four of out 5 districts in NCR have new chiefs. The following will now be the heads of 4 NCR districts: 

They replace Chief Superintendent Jose Erwin Villacorte of the SPD, Chief Superintendent Edgar Layon of the NPD, Chief Superintendent Rolando Asuncion of the MPD, and Chief Superintendent Richard Albano of the QCPD. 

The only district chief who maintained his post is Eastern Police District head Chief Superintendent Abelardo Villacorta. 

The incumbent police chiefs will be placed in new posts. In a statement, Roxas said the changes are "part of the reinvigorated anti-criminality campaign for NCR" and are effective immediately. 

Prior to Wednesday's major shake-up, the PNP relieved 14 out of 38 police station commanders, said Roxas.

The following are the relieved police station chiefs:

PNP chief Director General Alan Purisima "favorably endorsed" the changes, said Roxas.

 

On Thursday, October 9, the PNP also announced the assignment of 3 other officers to new posts.

Purisima assigned Chief Superintendent Federico Castro, Jr. as the new Executive Officer of the Director for Integrated Police Operations Visayas.

 

Senior Superintendent Rudy Lacadin, meanwhile was appointed the new Deputy Director for Administration for the PNP’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group while Senior Superintendent Elmo Francis Sarona was appointed the office-in-charge of the National Operations Center.
