Philippine National Police chief Dir. Gen. Oscar Albayalde is set to arrive in Bohol this week in what will be his first official visit in the province as the PNP’s highest ranking police official.
This was confirmed Monday by Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO) chief Sr. Supt. Angeles Geñorga during the morning assembly and flag raising ceremony at Camp Dagohoy in Tagbilaran City.
According to Geñorga, Albayalde will be conducting an inspection of BPPO stations across the province on June 15 and 16.
Albayalde will be accompanied by his wife Cherrylyn, PNP director for logistics Director Jose Ma. Victor Ramos, Central Visayas police director Chief Supt. Debold Sinas and other Camp Crame officials.
Meanwhile, various BPPO stations have started preparations for Albayalde’s inspection.
Geñorga said that he will be raising to Albayalde the province’s need for more police stations.
He also expressed gratitude that Albayalde chose Bohol as among the first provinces which he will visit as PNP chief.
Albayalde officially took over the helm of the PNP on April 19 replacing retired police chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa who has been appointed as chief of the Bureau of Corrections.
Prior to becoming the PNP chief, Albayalde was the director of the National Capital Region Police Office. (R. Tutas)
