From the Philippine News Agency (Jun 22): New cop chief in Northern Mindanao
Police Chief Superintendent Timoteo Pacleb, PMA Class 1986, was installed as the new police regional director in Northen Mindanao Thursday here.
Pacleb replaced police regional director Chief Superintendent Agripino Javier, of PMA Class 1985, who retired at the compulsory age of 56.
Police Director General Roland Dela Rosa came to Cagayan De Oro City Thursday to personally officiate the turnover ceremony at the police regional command here.
The turnover ceremony was witnessed by local officials and top police officials of PMA Class 1985 and 1986.
During the turnover ceremony, Dela Rosa urged the rank and file of the police regional command to extend full support to the new police regional director in Northern Mindanao.
He said that Pacleb, the former chief of the police intelligence group in Camp Crame, was appropriate for the new assignment considering the need to enhance the intelligence operations in the region due to the presence of terror groups in the neighboring province.
The police regional command in Northern Mindanao covers the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental, Lanao Del Norte, Bukidnon, and the island province of Camiguin.
“I hope that Pacleb would live up to the expectation of protecting the lives of the people and the community in Northern Mindanao,” Dela Rosa said.
