Promoted cops in PRO-13 told to refrain from ‘corruption, malice’

BUTUAN CITY – Brigadier Gen. Pablo Labra II, the director of the Police Regional Office in the Caraga Region (PRO-13), has welcomed the promotions of 1,379 police personnel in the region and told them to refrain from “any forms of corruption and malice.”

Labra led Tuesday the mass oath-taking, and the donning and pinning of ranks to the newly-promoted Police Commissioned Officers (PCOs) and Police Non-Commissioned Officers (PNCOs) in the region.

“Continue doing what is right and never get discouraged by any circumstances that may try to challenge a person’s faith in himself, his job, and his organization,” Labra told the newly-promoted officers.

He also encouraged them to continue to “live for the purpose of serving and protecting the country and people.”

At least 93 PCOs in PRO-13 got their promotions this year that included three majors, 80 captains, and 10 lieutenants.

Likewise, 1,286 PNCOs were also promoted comprising 66 executive master sergeants, 105 chief master sergeants, 126 staff master sergeants, 119 master sergeants, 229 staff sergeants, and 641 corporals.

“To everyone, do not engage in any illegal activities. Refrain from doing any forms of corruption and malice that may tarnish the uniform we wear,” Labra said. (PNA)
