TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol August 7, (PIA)—The Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) in Bohol has requested top Philippine National Police leaders to grant an extension of the service of Bohol Provincial Commander who would be clocking two years of highly effective tour of duty here this month. 

The resolution requesting for the extension of service of Police Senior Superintendent Dennis Agustin came amidst rumors that the sitting top cop in Bohol is due for a transfer following a mandatory two years of duty call.

PSSupt. Agustin, who had a highly decorated service as anti-organized crime buster in Metro Manila came to Bohol in August of 2013, to replace PSSupt. Constantino Barot, who was promoted to head the Regional Aviation Security Group. 
A few weeks after Col. Agustin assumed office in Bohol’s Camp Dagohoy, PNP Regional Director Prudencio “Tom” Banas, who was on official visit to Bohol challenged Col Agustin to make Bohol as the first drug free province. 

Immediately after making command conferences, Col. Agustin started making successes with the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) leading the pack in sniffing out drug personalities.

The constant news of police anti-drug operations and the heaping successes have netted high profile drug personalities, recovered for the government drugs and paraphernalia while the operations become training ground for unit commanders who shall be keys in the organization of the town units. 

After two years of unblemished record in Bohol, one highlighted by very successful anti-drugs operations, rumors of Col. Agustin’s transfer started leaking since last month. 

Several quarters have assumed that the rumors of Agustin’s transfer is linked to the anti-drugs operations and the closed opportunities for people to raise funds for the upcoming elections. 

For former provincial commanders ahead of Agustin, the PPOC had also issued requests for extension of service after the police commanders have satisfactorily served their terms.

Unconfirmed police sources said that police officers holding key positions of colonel can stay for a maximum of 4 years in an assignment. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
