A new police chief who vowed to maintain the city’s image as the most peaceful place in the country has been assigned in this city. Senior Supt. Ronald de la Rosa said his commitment to make the city peaceful, clean and safe from criminals was doubly imperative “because my family lives here.”

De la Rosa belongs to the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1986, and has been assigned in several places in the Davao region.

He is a graduate of foreign police training in San Antonio, Texas; an investigation course at the Federal Bureau of Investigation Academy in Virginia; the US Scout Ranger course in Fort Benning, Georgia, and Air Marshall Course in Canberra, Australia.

He was first detailed to head the Regional Special Action Force in Camp Catitipan here, and later with the Regional Mobile Group and the Presidential Anti-organized Crime Task Force for Davao egion.

He was also assigned to head the Regional Intelligence Division and was sent to Compostela Valley and Davao del Sur as provincial commander.

He was also detailed with the Directorate for Human Resources at the National Police headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City and was the chief of the Regional Logistics and Support Division before he was appointed this city’s police chief.

De la Rosa said he would “not allow criminal elements to make trouble here,” as he thanked Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio for selecting him from among the other contenders to the plum police post of the city.

He replaced Senior Supt. Rene Asperas who earlier said he would be handing over to his replacement a city that has known peace. His replacement was part of the routine tour of duty among police officers.
