Cabagnot to
replace Fama

A changing of the guards at the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office is in the offing.

Acting provincial police director, Senior Supt. Harris Fama, confirmed yesterday his impending relief via the Amigo Cops Negros Oriental PNP Text Blast project.

He said the time has come for him to move on to his next assignment. It has been 180 days as of this writing that he has led the men and women of NORPPO “with pride and honor”, Fama said.

“I can say that my assignment in Negros Oriental is the best I have”, he said.

Fama did not give any reason for his transfer.

Neither did he mention who ordered the assignment, but said he “was asked by General Ronald ‘Bato' dela Rosa, our Chief PNP, to a position that will enhance my police career”.

“I cannot say ‘no' to our CPNP. I know that I am one of the chosen and lucky few for the post”, he went on to say, but did not mention his new assignment “until it will be finalized”.

The incoming NORPPO director is Senior Supt. Rommel Cabagnot, a member of the Philippine National Police Academy Class 1991, Fama said.

The relinquishment of command will be next week, although Fama said there is still no given date.

He thanked the officials of Negros Oriental, headed by Governor Roel Degamo, Church leaders, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the Commission on Elections, the media and other sectors for their cooperation and support during his stint as acting police director.

Fama's leadership is known for various anti-criminality programs and projects that he introduced and implemented in Negros Oriental.

The Comelec had cited NORPPO, along with other government and non-government agencies and various sectors in the community, for a successful staging of the May 9 elections.

Not a single election-related incident was reported in the province during the elections, even though Negros Oriental was earlier tagged by the PNP as among the top 10 provinces in the country as vulnerable to election-related violence.*JFP
