President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed former Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II as commissioner of the National Police Commission (Napolcom).

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque confirmed Aguirre’s appointment in a statement on Monday.

“We confirm that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has signed the appointment of Mr. Vitaliano ‘Vit’ Aguirre II as Commissioner of the National Police Commission (Napolcom) representing the private sector,” Roque said.

Roque said Aguirre’s experience as justice secretary during the early years of the Duterte administration “bodes well in his new position to make the police service competent, effective, credible, and responsive to our people’s needs.”

Aguirre served as the secretary of the Department of Justice from 2016 to 2018.

The commission’s mandate includes the administration of police entrance examinations, the conduct of a pre-charge investigation of police anomalies and irregularities, and summary dismissal of erring police officers.

 

Challenge accepted

In a statement, Aguirre said he was elated and at the same time, humbled over his appointment.

“My appointment to the Napolcom carries with it the challenge to address the concerns and the stumbling blocks toward a better police force that will serve and will protect our countrymen,” Aguirre said.

He also committed to working closely with Interior Secretary and Napolcom chairperson Eduardo Año and other members of the commission “towards a better Napolcom”.

“Our countrymen have my solemn assurance that all my God-given talent, time, effort, and sacred honor will be invested toward this effort. Thank you, Mr. President,” he added. (PNA)
