CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga: Brig. Gen Rhodel Sermonia on Tuesday assumed his post as the new regional director of Police Regional Office 3 (PRO 3).

Sermonia, former deputy director of the Directorate for Police Community Relations and Police-Community Relations Group director, replaced Brig. Gen Joel Napoleon Coronel, who was appointed as the new head of the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) Criminal Investigation and Detection Group.

“This is like a homecoming for me since I was assigned in Bataan, I would like to express my profound gratitude to our [PNP officer in charge] Lt.Gen. Archie Gamboa for the trust and confidence he has given me and, with my gratitude, I offer him my pledge that I shall do my utmost best to perform my duties with the cooperation of every one,” he said.

“I urged everyone to extend to me the same support you have extended to General Coronel so that, together, we will continue to keep PRO 3 safe and peaceful at all times,” Sermonia added.

Sermonia is a member of the Philippine Military Academy, Makatao Class of 1989 and served as the provincial director of Bataan from October 2014 to July 2016.
