CAMP FLORENDO, La Union – Chief Superintendent Charlo Collado formally assumed Monday as regional director of the Police Regional Office 1 (PRO1) after he replaced Chief Supt. Gregorio Pimentel in a turnover of command Friday here.
Collado, former officer-in-charge of the Intelligence Group at Camp Crame, is a mistah of PNP Chief Ronald Dela Rosa of the Philippine Military Academy ‘Sinagtala’ Class 1986.
“I will see to it that the internal cleansing of our personnel here in PRO1 will be conducted properly and we will focus our operations on various initiatives that are being implemented by the PNP,” said Collado who hails from Baguio City.
Pimentel, for his part, was designated as officer-in-charge of the Directorate for Intelligence, replacing Chief Supt. Nestor Quinsay who just retired from police service.
The turnover ceremony was presided over by Director Manuel Felix, head of the Directorate for Integrated Police Operations in Western Mindanao.
