The Police Regional Office 6 reported yesterday that 1,190 of its personnel, including 344 assigned in Bacolod City and different parts of Negros Occidental, were promoted to higher ranks.
The pinning of rank insignias were simultaneously done yesterday in all city and provincial police offices in Region 6, aside from the PRO 6 headquarters at Camp Macario Peralta in Jamindan, Capiz.
Of the promoted police personnel, 43 were police commissioned officers and 1,147 were police non-commissioned police officers, Lt. Col. Joem Malong, spokesperson of the Western Visayas police, said.
Col. Romeo Baleros, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, who led the pinning of rank insignias on the promoted police personnel, reminded them to avoid involvement in illegal drugs and other wrongdoings.
