Police Brigadier General Jose S Hidalgo Jr. on Wednesday replaced Police Brigadier General Cesar R Pasiwen as the Regional Director of Police Regional Office 3.
PNP Chief, Police General Rodolfo S Azurin Jr. personally graced the retirement ceremony for PBGen Pasiwen, who officially retired from the police service today, February 22, 2023, at Camp Olivas, City of San Fernando, Pampanga.
The new Central Luzon regional director is a member of PNPA TAGAPAGKALINGA Class ’91 and was the NCRPO Deputy Regional Director for Administration before assuming his post as PRO3 Regional Director. He was also previously assigned at PRO3 as the Battalion Commander of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion.
In his speech, PBGen Hidalgo emphasized intensifying the anti-criminality programs of the region to surpass if not sustain the gains it already had as well as the continued efforts on anti-illegal drugs.
Meanwhile, PGen Azurin rallied the personnel of PRO 3 to support the new director and continue to win the streets through excellent law enforcement and even better police-community relations.
