Around 788 police non-commissioned officers of the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) were promoted to the next higher rank.
Police Col. Alexander Tagum, DCPO director, said the huge number of promoted police officers can be attributed to the outstanding performance of the local police personnel in terms of overall administrative and operational accomplishment.
Tagum administered the oath-taking and mass pinning of ranks to the newly-promoted police officers on Monday.
He pointed out that the DCPO has bagged the National Award for Best City Police Office of the Year, Best City Mobile Force of the Year, and other national plaudits.
“This is so because we have produced the best, tough, hardworking, disciplined and committed Davao's finest worthy for a well-deserved promotion,” the DCPO director said.
Tagum said that the newly-promoted officers will be taking on additional responsibility commensurate to their rank from Police Officer 1 or Patrolman.
Meanwhile, Tagum said more PNP personnel were "downloaded" to the DCPO from Police Regional Office-11.
“From 1,800 PNP personnel we are now around 2,200 excluding 1,500 Police auxiliary,” he said. “As what you can see we have more police in the headquarters and with the additional personnel most of them are newly-trained rookies PO1 assigned in the city."
With this number, Tagum hopes that they can serve and protect the public more.
