  • Precinct 20 (Los Amigos): PMAJ Paul Michael G. Neffe (from DOCPPO) replaces PMAJ March Culaste.

This reshuffle follows the recent appointment of Brigadier General Nicolas Torre III as PRO XI director. 

When asked about the reason for the relief, PRO XI spokesperson Major Catherine Dela Rey explained that the decision was part of the regional police director’s prerogative to reposition officers for improved service.

She emphasized that the move was not politically motivated.

While Torre initially stated he was not inclined towards immediate personnel changes, he emphasized the need to assess and boost morale within the force after the controversial removal of 35 PNP personnel in May, including former Davao City Police Director Col. Richard Bad-ang.

The shakeup is intended to improve police service and maintain peace and order in the region.
