Forty-eight police majors assigned at Police Regional Office-6 were promoted to lieutenant colonel recently.
Brigadier General Rolando Miranda, PRO-6 director, led the oathtaking and donning of ranks of the newly promoted police commissioned officers at Camp Gen. Martin Delgado.
The 48 promoted officers are from Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) with seven; Iloilo Police Provincial Office with two; Bacolod City Police Office, three; Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, 11; Guimaras Police Provincial Office, six; Antique Police Provincial Office, two; Aklan Police Provincial Office, eight; Capiz Police Provincial Office, three; and the regional headquarters, six.
The effectivity of their promotion was on April 4, based on the general orders from the national headquarters.
Miranda congratulated the newly promoted officers including their families who took their own share of sacrifice for their loved ones to get promoted.
Miranda also acknowledged the contribution of the promotion board in the processing and the screening of the promotion applicants headed by Colonel Lope Manlapaz, chief of Regional Personnel and Records Management Division.
Miranda said that the promotion means three things for him, one, career advancement; second is making their families proud of their achievement; and third is the added economic benefits.
“With all the benefits that come with your promotion, I am challenging you to prove that you are fitting to be called lieutenant colonels,” Miranda said.
“Since you are given greater responsibilities, your commitment level must also increase. I am confident that I have more Lieutenant Colonels in the region because we could deliver better service for the people of Western Visayas,” he added.*PRO-6 photo
