After a two-year stint as the chief of police of La Trinidad Municipal Police Station, C/Insp. Benson Macli-ing has turned over the command responsibilities to a newly appointed COP on Nov. 29.

Benguet Provincial Police Director S/Supt. Lyndon Mencio administered the changing of guard, as he praised the accomplishment of Macli-ing for elevating LTMPS to greater heights during his watch.

“Your work here is inspiring as seen with your engagement with the community and manifests in your performance of duty. I could not ask for more as you have brought LTMPS to its highlights, as it received the best municipal police station in the entire country. This is the first time in the history of the whole Cordillera. LTMPS is already synonymous with Benson Macli-ing,” Mencio said.

Mencio also encouraged his successor, C/Insp. Jeoffer Banglayan to step up with the challenge in leading the police station, which is the capital town of Benguet.

“Your skills will be tested in leading LTMPS,” he said.

The relief order from the Police Regional Office-Cordillera came as a surprise to everyone as the expected turnover would be later this month. But Mencio said it is in the nature of their job to follow an order from the chain of command.

“Officers come and go, we just perform our given orders as a good policeman,” he said in his speech.

Banglayan has acknowledged that it would be a challenge to take over the multi-awarded police station under the watch of Macli-ing. 

“This is a challenge on my part lalo na iyong accomplishments ng aking classmate but rest assured that I will continue the programs and plans started here,” Banglayan said.

On Aug. 8, President Rodrigo Duterte presented the best municipal police station award to Macli-ing, along with other national police awardees, during the 117th Police Service Anniversary celebration in Camp Crame, Quezon City.

Macli-ing has attributed the awards to their active community participation.

He added there should be a triangulate in the community: the local government unit that helps in the financial capabilities of the police station, the community that reports what is going on in their respective areas to the police that assist in addressing these problems.

Prior to being designated as new LTMPS chief, Banglayan served in the Regional Investigation and Detective Management Division in Camp Bado Dangwa.

It will be the first time for Banglayan, who hails from Sagada, Mountain Province, to take a top cop position in a municipality or city.

He is a criminology graduate of Baguio Colleges Foundation (now University of the Cordilleras) batch 1998. Banglayan and Macli-ing were commissioned police officers through lateral entry and came from Maringal Class of 2008.

Macli-ing will be at the Regional Police Holding and Administrative Unit at Camp Bado Dangwa while waiting for his next designation.
