Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Rodolfo Azurin Jr. has designated a familiar face in Brigadier General Alden Delvo to replace Brigadier Gen Benjamin Silo Jr. as regional director of the Police Regional Office (PRO 11).
Delvo served as city director during the term of former President Rodrigo Duterte.
Silo will now head the Civil Security Group after Azurin implemented reshuffling among high-ranking police officers on Friday.
The PNP chief also named Police Brigadier General Anthony Abellada Aberin as the new Regional Director of the Police Regional Office (PRO) 7, replacing Police Brigadier General Jerry Fornaleza Bearis.
Bearis also get Aberin’s former position as Director in the PNP Aviation Group.
This is part of the final PNP review wherein 11 high-ranking officials have been given new designations effective on Friday.
Azurin said the police organization’s leadership changes as a routine overhaul. He clarified that the latest does not signify that third-level officers in the PNP, or those with ranks of colonel to general, have been exempted from the ongoing purging.
