“Following the unfortunate incident wherein our Chief PNP, General Debold M. Sinas, tested positive for coronavirus, I was designated as the OIC, PNP as a matter of protocol.
As OIC PNP, I will be taking over the affairs of the PNP temporarily and until such time that our Chief PNP fully recovers.
Right now, the Chief PNP is doing well and I am in constant communication with him for consultation especially on matters that require his attention and guidance.
On behalf of the men and women of the PNP, I pray for the full recovery of my mistah in the soonest possible time.
Amid this development, the PNP leadership renews call for members of the organization and the general public to continue strictly observing health safety protocols.
The threat of coronavirus remains and in fact we have been observing an upsurge of COVID-19 cases in the past days as reported by the DOH.
Thus, we should all be vigilant for our protection, and for the protection of our families.”
– Police Lt. General Guillermo Eleazar, OIC, Chief, PNP
