President Rodrigo Duterte has already signed the promotion of some police officials to Police Chief Superintendent, which is equivalent to brigadier general at the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
The promoted officials of the Philippine National Police include C/Supt. Dionardo Carlos (PMA Class 88) of the PNP – Public Information Office, C/Supt Jose Briones (PMA Class 97) of Police Regional Office 12, C/Supt. Lito Petallano (PNPA Class 85) of PRO-5, and C/Supt. Debold Sinas (PMA Class 97), Secretary to the Directorial Staff.
Police Director General Ronald ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa personally led the donning of ranks to the said officials.
The PNP head challenged the newly-promoted officials to better their service, especially in the war on drugs of the Duterte Administration.
