Camp Bado Dangwa, Benguet — Two high-ranking officials of the Abra Police Provincial Office (PPO) are set to be relieved of their posts on Wednesday in a bid to improve the anti-crime drive in this province, following the killing of newsman-turned-administrative officer of the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office, Jack Turqueza.
Chief Superintendent Isagani Nerez, Police Regional Office-Cordillera (PROCOR), said Senior Supt. Virgilio Laya, officer-in-charge of the Abra PPO, will be replaced by Sr. Supt. Albertlito Garcia, while Supt. Mario Mayames, Provincial Public Safety Company (PPSC) chief, will be replaced by Supt. Lambert Suerte.
“I started the reshuffle in Abra because I saw their low performance, especially on crime prevention, Nerez said.
