Three names have come up as the top nominees to replace Senior Superintendent Dennis Agustin, the outgoing Bohol Police Provincial Office (BPPO) director.
According to Provincial Administrator Alfonso Damalerio II, the names of those who would possibly be the next chief of the BPPO however will not be bared yet.
Agustinâ€™s two-year term ended even before the May 9 elections but Governor Edgar Chatto moved to have it extended.
The Bohol Provincial Board approved a resolution which requested to have Agustinâ€™s tenure as BPPO director extended in 2015.
Damalerio said that there will no longer be another extension as this would hold the promotion of Agustinâ€™s rank.
Whoever will be chosen by the governor, the government is assuring the public that the new chief will be of the same or even better caliber than Agustin, he added.
In his almost three-year appointment in Bohol, Agustin’s most notable achievement was his anti-illegal drugs campaign which yielded millions worth of drugs and led to the downfall of several drug personalities.
Agustin started his duty as BPPO director in August 2013 when he replaced Sr. Supt. Constantino Barot Jr.Â (with reports from Allen Doydora)
