LGU CALBAYOG COMMENDS AFP, PNP FOR THE ORDERLY AND PEACEFUL MAY 2018 BSK ELECTIONS
CALBAYOG CITY - On the day that he left his post as Regional Police Director for Eastern Visayas on June 4, Police Chief Supt. Gilberto Cruz took with him Calbayog City’s gratitude and commendations for the peaceful conduct of the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections in the City of Calbayog.

Cruz personally handled the deployment of police officers from outside of the Province of Samar to Calbayog City a day before the elections after receiving complaints about alleged partisanship of the PNP Samar Provincial Command.

The Sangguniang Panlungsod has passed a resolution recognizing and commending Cruz and 3 others for their valuable assistance by providing support, round-the clock duty and visibility that effectively deterred any criminal activities and allowed the people to fully exercise their right to vote.

Included in the Resolution of Commendation are Police Senior Supt. Leonardo Ramos Suan, the Regional Deputy Administrator for Operations, PSupt. Jose Junar Alamo, the City’s Chief of Police, and Lt. Col. Apollo Herrera, Commanding Officer of the 43rd Infantry Battalion who also heads the Task Force CAGASMAS (Calbayog, Gandara, Sta. Margarita, Matuguinao and San Jorge.)
Notably excluded from the same resolution is the name of Samar’s Police Provincial Commander, Supt. Nicholas Torre III, whom the City recently declared as “persona-non-grata.”

On Monday, Chief Supt. Cruz turned-over the command of Eastern Visayas Regional Police Force to Chief Supt. Mariel Maniego Magaway, the former chief of PNP’s Intelligence Command, as part of the PNP’s ongoing reshuffling of its top brass.

PNP Chief Director General Oscar Albayalde earlier said that the reshuffling was needed due to the recent and upcoming retirement of some senior officials, and to make sure that the right person is assigned at the right post.(CJ)
