The relief of Brig. Gen. Rene Pamuspusan as Western Visayas police regional director is part of a massive revamp in the police force implemented by Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, Gen. Debold Sinas.
This was confirmed by Lt. Col. Joem Malong, PRO-6 spokesperson, today, November 30, who said it was part of the regular movement of police officials holding key positions.
Pamuspusan, a member of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class 1988, will be assigned to Camp Crame as deputy director for PNP Directorate for Plans, she said.
Pamuspusan will be replaced by Brig. Gen. Rolando Miranda, who was the director of the Manila Police District, Malong said.
Miranda, a member of PMA Class 1990, had also served in the defunct Negros Island Region Police Regional Office, she added.
The relief order of Pamuspusan will take effect tomorrow, December 1, while the turnover of command will be held Wednesday, December 2, at Camp Martin Delgado in Iloilo City.
Malong said they had a command conference with Pamuspusan today and they were directed to support the new leadership.*
