CHIEF In­spec­tor Je­of­fer Banglayan took his oath on Fri­day, Novem­ber 30 as the new Of­fi­cer – in - Charge of the La Trinidad Mu­nic­i­pal Po­lice Sta­tion (LTMPS).

This, af­ter out­go­ing C/Insp. Ben­son Ma­cli­ing re­lin­quished his po­si­tion fol­low­ing or­ders from the re­gional and na­tional of­fice.

Benguet Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Of­fice pro­vin­cial di­rec­tor Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Lyn­don Men­cio spear­headed the turn over cer­e­mony for both po­lice of­fi­cers.

Men­cio said Ma­cli­ing is an in­spi­ra­tion

and pride of the Benguet Po­lice Of­fice with the ar­rest of nu­mer­ous wanted per­sons, like­wise, re­solv­ing pend­ing cases and his en­gage­ment with the com­mu­nity. He also added the out­go­ing of­fi­cer has made his­tory, af­ter it was cho­sen as the best mu­nic­i­pal po­lice sta­tion na­tion­wide.

“As we all know, of­fi­cers come and go, or­ders came so sud­den, just this morn­ing I was in­formed of the re­lieve. All of us, it came as a sur­prise since be­ing a po­lice­man and a sol­dier we just fol­low or­ders, we im­me­di­ately do the or­ders given to us,” Men­cio said.

Men­cio ex­pressed op­ti­mism for Banglayan to re­fine the good foun­da­tion of the mu­nic­i­pal po­lice sta­tion.

Banglayan, from Sa­gada, Moun­tain Prov­ince who served as a staff of the Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice Cordillera for four years asked the mem­bers of the LTMPS for their sup­port.

“For the past years, I’ve been – have been ask­ing if I have po­si­tion like this, but how­ever, it didn’t ma­te­ri­al­ize be­cause my mind­set is that I’m con­tented on staff works, how­ever, here comes Novem­ber 27 when I was about to lecture at Mt. Prov­ince, I was stunned and sur­prised be­cause they in­formed me that I would be the in­com­ing in­charge of LTMPS,” shared Banglayan.

“At that time, I didn’t have the ap­petite to eat, maybe, be­cause of this big chal­lenge ahead of me. I fol­lowed the or­der. To the mem­bers of the LTMPS, I just hope and pray for your sup­port just like the sup­port that you be­stowed to my classmate,” he added.

Mean­while, Ma­cli­ing in his speech ad­dress to the in­com­ing head of po­lice to con­tinue the pro­grams, projects and ac­tiv­i­ties in the Val­ley.

To re­call, mem­bers of the Liga ng mga Barangay and Sang­gu­ni­ang Bayan of La Trinidad have asked the pos­si­ble ser­vice-ex­ten­sion of La Trinidad Mu­nic­i­pal Po­lice Sta­tion Chief In­spec­tor Ben­son Ma­cli-ing.

Through an ap­proved res­o­lu­tion on Oc­to­ber 26.

Six­teen barangay cap­tains of the Benguet cap­i­tal town have also ex­pressed the same re­quest to the Cordillera po­lice re­gional di­rec­tor.
