Deona is new PNP Bicol chief


LEGAZPI CITY, Oct. 16 (PIA) – Chief Supt Victor P. Deona took the helm of the Philippine National Police (PNP) regional office in Bicol following retirement of Chief Supt. Clarence V. Guinto on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Deona was known for his meritorious handling of Task Force Masbate responsible for the peaceful and orderly conduct of previous elections in Masbate province formerly known for bloody election-related killings in the past.

The new PNP Bicol regional director hailed from the EM’s Barrio, a village only adjacent to the police regional headquarters Camp Gen. Simeon A. Ola in this city.

Deona is a member of the Philippine Military Academy Batch ‘82.

Prior to his appointment as the new PNP Bicol police regional director, Deona was the PNP deputy director for Police Civil Relations base in Camp Crame.

He used to be the PNP Bicol deputy regional director for operations before his assignment to Camp Crame.

Police Director General Alan Purisima, who keynoted the turn-over ceremony on Monday afternoon, meanwhile, gave two marching orders to Deona on the eve of his designation as the new regional chief of the police force in Bicol.

Purisima has directed Deona to ensure orderly, peaceful and successful barangay election this coming Oct. 28 and to intensify the police campaign against criminality, insurgency and terrorism.

Deona, on the other hand, said that he wholeheartedly accepts the challenge and the entire police force in the region will see to it and do its best to achieve them.

Purisima expressed confidence that Deona will be able to do his job well and perform high with the help of the entire police force in Bicol.

The police chief asked Deona to always answer the challenge posed on the PNP leadership on the aspect of governance and transformation.

“We will bring out the best in our organization. We will make a difference.  Police officer should neither sleep on nor run from their duty to the country and to the people,” he stressed.

Purisima also commended Guinto for his successful and productive service to the police organization for three decades.  (MAL-PIA5/Albay)
