DAGUPAN CITY – This city has a new chief of police (COP) after a reshuffle done by the regional police office in San Fernando City, La Union.
Outgoing Officer-In-Charge’s COP of this city Superintendent Neil Miro, who  was succeeded by Superintendent Frank Ortiz,   will replace Urdaneta City’s OIC chief of police Superintendent Jackie Candelario.
Ortiz was reassigned from the Intelligence Group at Camp Crame in Quezon City  to the police regional office in San Fernando City and the police provincial office (PPO) in Lingayen, Pangasinan.
According to a source the turn-over will be on  April 10. The early change of command was due to a car accident in which Candelario suffered. A press release of the PPO said he suffered from a dislocated right hip when his Toyota Vios bumped a mango tree in Barangay Maticmatic in Sta. Barbara.The accident happened  at  4:36 in the morning of April 7.  Ortiz is a member of the Philippine National Police Academy’s Class of 2003. He hails from Barangay Apugan-Loakan, Baguio City.
Before his assignment in Camp Crame he was assigned in a regional intelligence unit in Cebu City.

Source who asked not to be identified said that Ortiz was a protegee of Chief Superintendent  Charlo Collado, the new OIC Police Regional Director of Region 1.
 “He was part of a few selected men brought by Collado when he replaced Chief Superintendent Gregorio Pimentel who was plucked to the Directorial for Intelligence at Camp Crame in a two-star position there,” the source said.
Miro, a ward of Pimentel and a member of PNPA Class 1997, became a COP here for more than eight months after he replaced Supt. Christopher Abrahano in August last year .
Abrahano was one of the longest serving chiefs of police in the history of this city. He was the COP
in 2012 under the administration of then Mayor Benjie S. Lim and was retained by Mayor Belen Fernandez when she defeated Lim in the 2013 election.
He was the first PNPA alumnus who became COP here where most of his predecessors were graduates of the Philippine Military Academy.
“The longest serving chief of Dagupan was Boysie Rosales as he served the city twice under Mayor (Al) Fernandez while Abrahano served Dagupan for four years,” the source said.
Most of the COP assigned here became not only Chief Superintendent (one star general in the military) but became Chief of the PNP like former Director General Hermogenes Ebdane.
Former chiefs who became generals, who were all alumni of the PMA were  Roberto “Boysie” Rosales , Wendy Rosario, Manuel Barcena, Edgar Basbas to  name a few.
