Laoag City—The Philippine National Police appointed a new officer-in-charge for this city’s police force.

Ilocos Norte Police Provincial Office (INPPO) provincial director P/Sr. Supt. Melencio Nartates led the turn-over ceremony at the city hall conference room attended with Ilocos Norte police officials, other chiefs of police and Laoag mayor Chevylle V. Farinas and other city officials on March 12, 2018.

Mr. Guerrero, in his message, said he will continue all the programs and activities of the present especially in support to the campaign against illegal drugs and the peace and order situation of Laoag.

He also asked a full cooperation by the city government to implement the PNPs vision and mission.

The mayor assured the city government’s help with the Laoag police.

The city government’s latest donation to the city police are new patrol cars and motorcycles.

Mr. Balles, meanwhile, leaves for a new assignment in the police regional office.

Mr. Balles led the Laoag police for more than two years.
