BAGAC, Bataan – Personnel of Bataan Police Provincial Office (BPPO) led by Senior Supt. Rhodel Sermonia, Bataan Police Director, this morning officiated the formal turn over ceremony of its newly appointed chief of police of this town.
Mayor Rommel “Ramil” del Rosario witnessed the turn over rites at the Sangguniang Bayan session hall along with municipal administrator Nick Ancheta, department heads, barangay chiefs and directorial staff of the BPPO.
Senior Inspector Andrew Jansky Jaafar relinquished his post as this town’s chief of police and passed the ceremonial flag to his former classmate in the police academy, Senior Inspector Joey Sampaga. Jaafar will be preparing for his schooling as a prerequisite for his promotion as police chief inspector.
Jaafar served as this town’s police chief for one year and seven months while Sampaga once served this town for seven months in 2013.
Mayor Del Rosario in his brief speech thanked and cited Jaafar’s accomplishments in fighting lawless elements and drug pushers making Bagac as one of the most peaceful towns in the province “with zero crime rate specially when Bagac hosted the APEC senior finance officers meeting at the Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar several months ago.”
“Alam po natin na hindi biro ang maging police. Buhay nila ang nakataya sa kanilang pagganap sa kanilang tungkulin kaya’t patuloy po ang ating suporta kasama ang ating mga kababayan sa pagsugpo ng krimen lalo napo sa illegal drugs,” Del Rosario said.
On the other hand, Col. Sermonia also thanked Mayor Del Rosario’s continuous help in the police force along with other local government units in the province specially the provincial government led by Governor Albert Raymond Garcia.
“Im happy to announce na tagumpay po ang kampanya natin kontra illegal na droga. Nakapagpakulong na po tayo ng 556 drug pushers at 100 ang boluntaryong sumurender dahil sa ating multi sectoral all government anti drug campaign.” Sermonia pointed out.
