SENIOR Supt. Elmer Jamias has been named as the new director of the Eastern Police District (EPD), replacing Chief Supt. Abelardo Villacorta.
Jamias, a former deputy director for administration of the Southern Police District (SPD), formally assumed his post in a ceremony at the EPD headquarters in Pasig City.
He warned the four chiefs of police in the EPD to do their jobs well, especially in curbing all forms of criminality.
“Back to basic po tayong lahat kung saan mas maraming beat patrol ang itatalaga kaya ang mga hepe ng pulis natin ay iyan ang ating sinabi dahil ganyan ang gagawin ng lahat (We will have more beat patrols. All chiefs of police will have to implement that),” Jamias told reporters.
