PNP Spokesman, Chief Supt. Generoso Cerbo Jr., said Friday that Director Ager Ontog will take over the post of The Chief of Directorial Staff, which was previously occupied by Purisima.
Taking over Ontog’s old post of PNP Director for Intelligence is Director Vidal Querol, commander of the PNP’s elite unit, the Special Action Force (SAF), the PNP spokesman said.
While Caraga police director, Chief Supt. Carmelo Valmoria has been designated as the new SAF commander, Cerbo said. No words yet on who will take over Valmoria’s of position.
