Brigadier General Esquivel, Jr. assumes post as PNP Caraga top cop

Camp Col Rafael C Rodriguez, Butuan City – Brigadier General Gilberto DC Cruz formally relinquished his post to the Police Regional Office (PRO) 13 director Brigadier General Joselito Esquivel, Jr. during the turn-over of command held here yesterday (September 16).

Brigadier General Cruz will be assigned to the Directorate for Integrated Police Operations-Northern Luzon based at the national headquarters in Camp BGen Rafael T. Crame, Quezon City.

Among his accomplishments in his one-year leadership were: recovery of 164 bricks of cocaine valued at 1.14billion, the biggest recovery of illegal drugs in the entire archipelago; destruction of 15million worth of marijuana plantation in Agusan del Sur; conduct of outreach programs in insurgency-affected areas that benefitted more than 12,000 Caraganons; topping the nationwide crime solution efficiency for three consecutive quarters; and the conduct of the PNP Caraga film festival, the first ever film fest nationwide that raised awareness among the youth to the evils of terrorism and now being shown nationwide.

In his message, the outgoing commander thanked all the heads of government agencies, stakeholders and all personnel of PRO13 for their support during his stint.

“Thank you for doing your respective roles and tasks beyond the ordinary policing works, for the memories that we shared together during the conduct of activities and programs; and for your efforts that made us as one strong police force,” BGen Cruz said.

Meanwhile, the new top cop vows to make significant strides in the conduct of police operations, internal cleansing campaign, crime prevention, and crime solving efforts in the region.

RD Esquivel, Jr., a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1988, is the 18th PNP Regional Director of Caraga.
