Sun.Star Baguio - - Top Stories -

BAGUIO City Mayor Mauri­cio Do­mo­gan re­quested the lead­er­ship of the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice (PNP) to com­plete the five names of qual­i­fied City Di­rec­tor of the Baguio City Po­lice Of­fice (BCPO) af­ter two of the po­lice of­fi­cers who were in­cluded in the ini­tial list re­port­edly with­drew.

The lo­cal chief ex­ec­u­tive claimed when the five po­lice of­fi­cers in the ini­tial list were con­tacted to sub­mit the re­quired doc­u­ments to the lo­cal screen­ing com­mit­tee and make them­selves avail­able for a rigid in­ter­view, one of them al­ready begged of as he was due for ap­point­ment as chief of staff of the Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice (PRO) in the Cordillera while an­other po­lice of­fi­cer with­drew from con­tention be­cause he is await­ing a po­si­tion in the gen­eral head­quar­ters which had been promised him.

“We have no re­course but to re­turn the short­list to the PNP so the five names of qual­i­fied po­lice of­fi­cers will be com­pleted con­sid­er­ing the with­drawal of the two prospec­tive can­di­dates. We hope that the short­list could be made avail­able the soon­est pos­si­ble time for us to se­lect the next BCPO chief,” Do­mo­gan stressed.

As soon as the short­list will be made avail­able to the lo­cal gov­ern­ment, he claimed the lo­cal screen­ing com­mit­tee will be con­vened to con­duct the screen­ing of the ap­pli­cants and that the re­sults of the screen­ing will be the one that will be rec­om­mended for ap­point­ment to the PNP as BCPO chief.

In­cluded in the short­list that was trans­mit­ted to the lo­cal gov­ern­ment by PRO-COR re­gional di­rec­tor Chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Rolando Nana are Ifu­gao Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Of­fice of­fi­cer-in-charge Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent David Peredo, Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent

Agustin Juan Tello, Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Gio­vani Maines, PROCOR re­gional in­tel­li­gence chief Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Elmer Ra­gay and for­mer BCPO City Di­rec­tor Se­nior su­per­in­ten­dent Ge­orge Daskeo.

Among the doc­u­ments to be sub­mit­ted by the ap­pli­cants to the lo­cal screen­ing com­mit­tee in­clude their per­for­mance rat­ings for two suc­ces­sive semesters pre­ced­ing their be­ing in­cluded in the short­list and a pre­sen­ta­tion of their over­all pro­grams for the BCPO.

Do­mo­gan said the rec­om­men­da­tion of the lo­cal screen­ing com­mit­tee will be im­me­di­ately for­warded to the PRO-COR for the is­suance of the ap­pro­pri­ate des­ig­na­tion to the se­lected po­lice of­fi­cers the next BCPO chief.

Un­der the pro­vi­sions of the law that cre­ated the PNP, lo­cal chief ex­ec­u­tives are em­pow­ered to se­lect from a list of qual­i­fied se­nior po­lice of­fi­cers the one that will head the lo­cal po­lice of­fice in his or her area of ju­ris­dic­tion.

The 2-year tour of duty of BCPO City Di­rec­tor Ramil Sac­ulles al­ready lapsed last month but he is hold­ing his po­si­tion on a holdover ca­pac­ity while await­ing the ap­point­ment of his suc­ces­sor who will come from the short­list that will be re-sub­mit­ted to the lo­cal gov­ern­ment by higher au­thor­i­ties.
