Lt Gen Sermonia Back as Philippine National Police’s No 2
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen Rodolfo Azurin Jr recently named Lt Gen Rhodel Sermonia as deputy chief for administration, the police force’s second highest post.
This is the second time Sermonia was named to the post, the first was in March this year under then PNP chief Gen Dionardo Carlos.
Lt Gen Sermonia’s designation took effect on Oct 30, nearly a month after he was named as the officer-in-charge of the Office of the Deputy Chief for Administration.
Meanwhile, some 16 ranking police officials were included in the latest reorganisation of the PNP.
Maj Gen Michael John Dubria, then director of the Civil Security Group (CSG), replaced Sermonia as chief of the APC-Visayas while Maj Gen Eden Ugale took over as CSG director.
Brig Gen Romeo Caramat Jr, director of the Police Regional Office-Caraga (PRO-13), was assigned as deputy director of the Directorate for Intelligence (DI), while Brig Gen Pablo Labra II replaced Caramat as PRO-Caraga chief.
Brig Gen Belli Tamayo from Directorate for Intelligence was named as acting deputy commander of the APC Western Mindanao. –shp/adj/aaa (Image: Facebook page of Lt Gen Sermonia)
