ANGELES CITY – Newly-appointed Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, Director General Oscar D. Albayalde, was feted with a resolution from the city council here.
Councilor Jesus “Jay” Sangil sponsored the resolution, written in Pilipino, citing Albayalde’s achievement as a Kapampangan who graduated from the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Sinagtala Class of 1985 cum laude and top seven from the graduates of the institution from that year.
The resolution acknowledged Albayalde’s service in the public sector as a member of the Philippine Constabulary Special Action Force that started on June 23, 1986.
It also cited Albayalde’s sterling stewardship of the Pampanga Provincial Police Office (PPPO) as director in 2013 and then as deputy director of the National Capitol Regional Police Office (NCRPO) Directorate for Plans and later director of the National Capitol Regional Police Office (NCPRO) in 2016.
The resolution said Albayalde’s role as director of the PPPO and NCRPO that exercised teamwork resulted in strict discipline and openness that brought down the crime rate incidence and led to the dismantling of crime syndicates as well as the dismissal from the service offering and corrupt policemen.
The resolution said the Province of Pampanga has noted with distinction Albayalde’s contribution in the field of law enforcement with the conferment of the Most Outstanding Kapampangan Award in 2016.
The resolution said due to his accomplishments and achievements, the people of Angeles City are one in hailing the newly-appointed PNP chief as an outstanding citizen worthy of emulation.
