Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa has named Police Chief Supt. John Bulalacao as the new spokesperson and chief of the agency’s Public Information Office (PIO).
Dela Rosa made the official announcement on Wednesday, which was contained in a statement issued by the PNP PIO.
Bulalacao, a member of the Philippine Military Academy “Maringal” Class 1988, replaced fellow Maringal Chief Supt. Dionard Carlos, who assumed the post as Director of the PNP Aviation Security Group on Tuesday upon the retirement of Chief Supt. Sheldon Jacaban.
Bulalacao was erstwhile Regional Chief of Directorial Staff of the National Capital Region Police Office and was recently promoted to the star rank last January 14, the PNP said.
It added that Bulalacao has served a “well-rounded career as a junior and field grade officer.”
Bulalacao commanded the Cavite Police Provincial Office as Provincial Director in 2011-2012, and earlier served as chief of police in Tagaytay City, Dasmariñas and Carmona.
He also served as staff officer in various capacities in the Civil Security Group, National Capital Region Police Office and Special Action Force. /jpv
