BAGUIO CITY-- Senior Supt. George Daskeo is now the official Baguio City Police Office director.
Daskeo, who was Officer-in-charge of the BCPO, was selected city director last week following the long awaited search and screening for the city’s police chief post.
On June 10, Police Regional Office – Cordillera Regional Director Police Chief Supt. Ulysses Abellera officially endorsed to Domogan Resolution No. 2016-303 of the National Police Commission which contained five qualified applicants for BCPO chief.
Under the said NAPOLCOM resolution which approved May 11,  qualified senior police officers for BCPO chief were Senior Supt. Jimmy Almora Catanes of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group-Cordillera, former BCPO-OIC Senior Supt.  Rolando Fernandez Miranda who is now  Directorate for Integrated Police Operations in Western Mindanao, Senior Supt. Albert Erasquin   Ocon of PRO III, Senior Supt. Edwin Rey Butacan of Highway Patrol Group in Region II and Daskeo.
Due to delay in selection process, two of five recommended candidates were considered for the top police post since Butacan and Ocon retired while Miranda finished his 2-year duty as BCPO-OIC, Mayor Mauricio Domogan said.
The mayor convened the screening committee composed of himself as chairman, City Prosecutor Elmer Manuel Sagsago, City Administrator Carlos Canilao, City DILG Director Evelyn Trinidad, OIC City Human Resource Management Officer Edith Dawaten and Baguio Correspondents and Broadcasters Club president Ramon Dacawi to screen the applicants based on availability, programs, performance, implementation, and results of the interview.
It was a close fight between the two contenders. Domogan said the performance of Daskeo during the elections making Baguio City one of the most peaceful cities during the May 9 national and local elections was considered during the screening process.
Daskeo is a graduate of the Philippine National Police Academy Class of 1988.
         He was first assigned in Region III then to the Cordillera Region where he served in as chief of the CIDG of Baguio City and Benguet in 1993, station commander of BCPO Stations 2 and 7 and BCPO Deputy for Administration in 2011-2012.
He served as provincial police director of Kalinga prior to his assignment as OIC of the BCPO earlier this year.
Daskeo replaced Miranda as OIC without the knowledge of the mayor prompting the city executive to decry what he called the PNP’s practice of circumventing its own rules in appointing police chiefs in the city.
Miranda served as the BCPO OIC for the past two years and the PNP had not recommended permanent appointment as chief of police.
Domogan ordered Daskeo to improve the peace and order of the city and lessen crime.
