New PRO–Cor chief vows a peaceful CAR
by Harley F. Palangchao

TURNOVER OF COMMAND -- Baguio boy, C/Supt. Rolando Nana assumed as the new director of Police Regional Office-Cordillera from his predecessor, C/Supt. Edward Carranza, who was assigned to PRO-4A during turn over of command responsibilities in Camp Bado Dangwa in La Trinidad, Benguet with Police Director Roel Obusan, chief of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, presiding the turnover rites last June 4. -- Harley Palangchao

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – All police commands in the Cordillera have to start from zero in line with the government’s war on criminality and illegal drugs while police officers unfit for the job will be replaced.

These were the marching orders of C/Supt. Rolando Nana, newly installed director of Police Regional Office-Cordillera, when he met with all police provincial and city directors after his instillation rites on June 4.

Nana, a Baguio boy and a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class 1985, said that all the previous accomplishments of the six provincial and two city police commands will be treated as part of the documents, saying their accomplishments during his term as regional director starting June 4 will have more weight.

Foremost in the agenda of the newly minted Cordillera police director is for the police commands to maintain that the region will be safe and peaceful for Cordillerans and visitors as well.

Nana also reminded the regional police force that the national campaign against illegal drugs, criminality and corruption will be sustained so that those continue to be engaged in these criminal acts will be brought to justice.

“Until there are drug-affected barangays, until there are marijuana cultivators in our mountains, crimes in our jurisdiction, we will not stop. We will continue with the fight against criminality and illegal drugs,” Nana said, adding that his leadership will bring an enhanced managing intelligence-driven police operation.

Erstwhile Cordillera police director, C/Supt. Edward Carranza, who was assigned to Police Regional Office 4A, reported that 94 percent of the region’s 1, 176 barangays were labeled by the oversight committee as “drug-free” villages.

Carranza added that 80 persons wanted for illegal drugs trade were arrested and around P73 million worth of illegal drugs, mostly marijuana, were seized during his stint as PRO-Cor director for more than four months.

Nana, meanwhile, warned all police commanders that his leadership will also sustain the internal cleansing like what Police Director General Oscar Albayalde promised when he assumed the post to lead the 190,000-strong police department.

Nana was a deputy director of the National Capital Region Police Office prior to his assignment to the Cordillera.
