Thus said, PSSupt Ritchie Medardo Posadas as he revealed the result of the latest performance evaluation of the 9-unit police commands in Central Luzon which have the Tarlac Police Provincial Office (TPPO) in the 2nd top slot.

The Philippine National Police Regional Office 3 (PRO 3) is composed of the provinces of Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Bataan, Aurora, Zambales and Tarlac and police commands of Angeles City and Olongapo City.

“When I assumed office (Tarlac police provincial director) last February, TPPO was No. 8. Our determined efforts to improve our performance and our services to the people paid-off. We are now 2nd Best”, said Posadas.

Posadas replaced former provincial director PSSupt Westrimundo Obinque last February who was sacked by PRO3 Director PCSupt Aaron Aquino for “under performance”.

Tarlac police recently hugged the national news over the series of “commendable accomplishments” including the separate entrapment operation against 2 barangay kagawads in Concepcion who were both arrested selling shabu and the killing in a “bungled buy bust” of a Manila-based supplier of illegal drugs also in the town of Concepcion.

Concepcion Police is headed by PSupt Luis Ventura Jr.

Also the arrest recently of the so-called “Shabu Queen” in Moncada town under PCInsp Palmyra Guardaya made the national newspapers and “trended” in online news.

The evaluation performance rating was Bataan – 52.48 points, Tarlac – 51.69, Zambales -50.92, Nueva Ecija - 37.59, Bulacan – 30.81, Angeles City - 28.29, Olongapo City - 26.22, Pampanga - 26.13 and Aurora - 25.27.

“The difference (with Bataan) is only 0.79 points and your TPPO has no way to go but up”, said Posadas who used to head the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group in Region 7.

The TPPO has long maintained its “prestige” in PRO 3 for having been headed by former PNP Chief retired PDG Nicanor Bartolome, former DILG Under Secretary Alex Sintin and former PRO 3 Director retired PCSupt Rudy Lacadin.
