Police Regional Office-9 Chief Supt. Miguel C. Antonio Jr. said that Zamboanga City Police Director Sr. Supt. Angelito A. Casimiro can become a PRO-9 Director in the future if he will be promoted in another region or in Camp Crame as a Chief Superentendent, a policerank that is equivalent to Brigadier General in the Philippine Army.

According to Antonio, Casimiro had been assigned in Zamboanga Peninsula since he was a junior officer as graduate of the Philippine Military Academy.

“He knows the people in the region and the terrain and he is well verse with the traditions and customs of the region. Zamboanga Peninsula needs a leader who knows the region and its people and culture,” Antonio said of Casimiro.

“ After his tour of duty at the Zamboanga City Police Office he should be re-assigned in another region so that he will become a General and hence can be appointed as PRO-9 Regional Director in the future. But if he will be promoted as a General here in the PRO-9, he can not be appointed as Regional Director of PRO-9,” Antonio explained.

In another the other development, Antonio has designated Sr. Supt. Michael M. Nicholas as the new Zamboanga del Sur Police Provincial Director vice Sr. Supt. Sofronio Ecaldre who assumed as the new Police Community Relation chief.

Sr. Supt. Debold M. Sinas is now the concurrent PRO - 9 Deputy Regional Director for Operations and Chief Directorial Staff. — Allen Abastillas
