Revamp on at DCPO

A revamp hit the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) with at least seven officers getting a re-assignment on Wednesday.

Sr. Insp. Maria Teresita Gaspan, the DCPO spokesperson, said the reshuffling of precinct commanders is a regular movement and it is considered as boost for affected officers who are due for rank promotions.

The revamp was also implemented as one officer was assigned at the Police Regional Office for schooling.

Chief Insp. Emerson Pugong, departing as the commander of Sasa Police Precinct, was reassigned to the regional command.

Pugong was replaced by Chief Insp. Ruben Libera, previously the chief officer of the DCPO’s Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) and the DCPO’s Foot Patrol Section. Libera’s deputy, Chief Inspector Peter John Muring is taking the leadership in DEU/Foot Patrol Section.

Supt. Jed Clamor, formerly the chief of DCPO’s Intelligence Division, assumed as head of the DCPO’s Special Operations Group (SOG).

Chief Insp. Nolan Raquid replaced Clamor in the Intelligence Division.

Chief Insp. Michael Uyanguren replaced Raquid’s post as commander of Sta. Ana Police Precinct.

Taking the place of Uyanguren as commander of Calinan police was Chief Insp. Archimedes Wesley who vacated his post as the commander of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit.

Sr. Insp Philip Dave Uddin, SWAT deputy chief, is tasked as the temporarily officer-in-charge (OIC) of the unit.

In the coming days, Gaspan said more officers will be reshuffled because some precinct commanders already served for almost two years.

Gaspan said the DCPO has been asking the regional office for additional personnel, particularly inspectors and superintendents, because they already lack the needed officers.
