Five ranking police officials have been included in the latest reorganization of the Philippine National Police (PNP), according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

Based on PNP chief Gen. Benjamin Acorda Jr.'s order dated Nov. 17 that took effect on the same date, Director for Information and Communication Technology Management (DICTM) Maj. Gen. Bernard Banac is now the Director of the Special Action Force (SAF), replacing Maj. Gen. Rudolph Dimas, who was assigned to head the Directorate for Plans (DPL).

Meanwhile, Brig. Gen. Neil Alinsañgan from DPL will head the DICTM in lieu of Banac, while Brig. Gen. John Chua, former Police Regional Office – Ilocos (PRO - 1), will be the chief of the Area Police Command (APC) in the Visayas.


Brig. Gen. Lou Evangelista, director of Police Community Affairs and Development Group (PCADG), will replace Chua at PRO – 1, while Col. Restituto Arcangel will be the PCADG director.

Acorda, who is retiring on Dec. 3, previously said he has no plans of implementing a massive reshuffle.

“If there are any changes in the command because of vacancies, if somebody is retiring or there are problems with commanders on the ground, that's the only time we do a reshuffle. It's only done to fill up vacancies that will be created," he said.
