NCRPO has new commander

Non Alquitran (The Philippine Star) - December 12, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) has a new commander in the person of Director Carmelo Valmoria.

Valmoria assumed command of the NCRPO yesterday during simple turnover rites at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.

Valmoria replaced Chief Superintendent Marcelo Garbo Jr., who was designated as the Chief Directorial Staff (CDS) or the No. 4 man of the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Garbo and Valmoria are among the nine police officers affected by a major reshuffle at the PNP following the retirement of Deputy Director General Ager Ontog, the PNP’s Deputy Chief for Administration (DCA) and Director Cipriano Querol, the head of the Directorate for Intelligence (DI).

Prior to his appointment as NCRPO chief, Valmoria was the head of the Special Action Force (SAF), the fighting unit of the PNP.

Valmoria is no stranger to the NCRPO – he was its deputy chief for operations and administration under PNP chief Director General Alan Purisima during the latter’s time as NCRPO chief.

His former postings include being the head of the PNP’s contingent to the United Nations peacekeeping force, Headquarters Security Service (HSS) and the Caraga regional command.

He led a contingent of SAF personnel who rushed to Tacloban City to curb the incidence of looting and maintain peace and order after Eastern Visayas was hit by Super Typhoon Yolanda.

A member of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class ‘82, Valmoria has a reputation of being a disciplinarian, like Garbo. Valmoria is expected to continue implementing Garbo’s “no take” policy against illegal gambling in Metro Manila.
