Effective August 15, 2012 the service of Police Senior Superintendent Cornello Defensor as Provincial Director of Aklan Police Provincial Office has formally ended.
After one year and six months in the office he received a directive to end his service to the province as a director of Aklan Police.
According to APPO Deputy Director Supt. Pablito Asmod, it is but normal for police officials to be relieved and transferred to a new assignment in order to give an opportunity to other members to be head of a certain police office.
He said that Defensor had already achieved the maximum length of time being seated as PD of Aklan, and it’s just right for him to have a new assignment.
In line with this, while they are waiting for the turn over ceremony which will be held on August 22 for Defensor’s replacement to formally take over, Asmod will be OIC Provincial Director of APPO for the meantime.
He also revealed that what will occur is actually a ‘Swap’.
This is because S/Supt. Pedrito Escarilla of Regional Investigation and Detective Management Division of Camp Delgado, Iloilo City will be replacing the relieved Aklan Police PD, while Defensor will take over the position that Escarilla has vacated.
