745 Police Personnel Promoted for Gallantry during Marawi Siege


By Chito Chavez

Seven hundred forty-five police personnel were given special promotion by the National Police Commission (Napolcom) for risking their lives and showing gallantry beyond the call of duty during the Marawi City siege on May 23, 2017.

The commission stressed the heroic acts of the police officers resulted in the neutralization of 920 local terrorist groups (LTGs), rescue of 1,777 hostages and the recovery of 479 units of assorted high-powered firearms, several rounds of ammunition, and ordnance and improvised explosive devices (IED).

Napolcom Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Rogelio T. Casurao said the Commission en banc approved Resolution No. 2018-206 confirming the special promotion to the next higher rank of the 745 PNP personnel.

This was made following the recommendation of then PNP Chief Police Director General Ronald M. Dela Rosa who sought for the meritorious promotion of the gallant police officers.

The 745 special promotees are broken down, as follows: Police Regional Office (PRO) ARMM - 163; PRO 10 - 91; PRO 11 - 9; PRO 6 and PRO COR - 2 each; PROs 2, 7, 9, 12, 13 and NCRPO - 1 each; Special Action Force (SAF) - 437; Maritime Group (MG) - 16; Communications and Electronics Service (CES) - 6; Health Service (HS) and Crime Laboratory Group (CLG) - 4 each; and, Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), Police Security Protection Group (PSPG), Logistics Support Service (LSS), Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (DIDM), and PHAU Directorate for Personnel and Records Management (DPRM) - 1 each. …
