‘Bato’ urged: Submit more names 

BAGUIO CITY – The local screening committee created by Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan to screen qualified police commissioned officers contained in the shortlist for the next city director urged Philippine National Police chief Director-General Ronald dela Rosa to submit three new qualified police officers to said position after the three nominees included in shortlist failed to appear during screening Monday for various reasons.
In his 2-page letter addressed to the PNP chief, Domogan also requested that the three names to be submitted to him would be officers who are from the city or at least from the Cordillera pursuant to Section 51 of Republic Act (RA) 6975 which provides that governors and mayor shall be deputized as representatives of the Commission in their respective territorial jurisdiction and as such, local executives are mandated to discharge related functions.
Domogan urged the PNP chief to give the LSC extension of time until the issue is resolved to screen and submit the name for the next Baguio police director.
Domogan told dela Rosa that the practice in the city is that there is a standing committee formed to ensure selection of city police director will be in accordance with principle of merit and fitness.
Upon receipt of Resolution No. 2017-054 of the National Police Commission that contained the names of the shortlisted qualified police commissioned officers as next city police chief, Domogan issued Administrative Order No. 022, series of 2017 reconvening the LSC and scheduled an interview with the five nominees last March 6.
However, only Senior Superintendents Ramil L. Saculles and Peter N. Nabuye expressed their willingness to pursue their nominations while also Senior Superintendent Giovanie C. Maines, Randy Peralta and Nino David L. Rabaya decided to withdraw as were appointed to positions they desired.
 “We want the PNP to provide us with additional names in the shortlist to replace the ones that withdrew so that we will have a wide range of choice to select the next city police director,” Domogan said.
He said it was the consensus of members of the LSC to request the PNP chief for additional names preferably from the city or the different parts of the Cordillera to allow them to have the best choice on who will be the next BCPO City Director after the unceremonious relief of Senior Superintendent George Daskew, who was just appointed to his position as city police director on June 2016, but was suddenly replaced on Sept. 30, 2016 for allegedly been over ranked for said post. – With a report from Karen Valle Copa
