Baguio Boy is Next PNP Chief

UPDATE: Lieutenant General Camilo Cascolan is the next Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, replacing retiring top cop General Archie Gamboa, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año confirmed to Rappler on Tuesday, September 1.

Cascolan is set to retire on November 10 as he reaches the mandatory age of retirement of 56, unless President Rodrigo Duterte decides to extend his term.

Asked about Cascolan's possible short term, Año said the public should not focus on the span of his stint, but the work to be done.

"Matagal pa naman ang 2 months (2 months is still long). We don't think of that yet. There is a lot to be done," he said.

In terms of seniority, Cascolan was next in line to be chief as the deputy chief for administration of the PNP. He belongs to the Philippine Military Academy Sinagtala Class of 1986.

...

Police Lt. Gen. Camilo Pancratius Cascolan will serve as officer-in-charge of the Philippine National Police (PNP) upon the retirement of Gen. Archie Gamboa on Wednesday, Malacañang said Tuesday.

Known by his nickname "Pikoy," Cascolan is also a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1986, to which his two predecessors, Police Generals Gamboa and (now Senator) Ronald de la Rosa also belonged.

A native of Baguio City, he is a product of the Maryknoll Convent School and the University of the Philippines Baguio High School.

The viral photos of Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Archie Gamboa showing him with a group of people without face masks and not following the protocols on physically distancing were actually taken before the imposition of pandemic restrictions.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) threatened to file complaints against individuals who are spreading photos of the PNP chief.

On Tuesday, August 18, the Philippine Star posted the photos, saying that the images were of Gamboa's controversial Baguio City dinner allegedly held on Saturday, August 15. The publication said the information came from a reliable source.

However, the photos were taken on February 18 at a dinner party in Forbes Park, Makati City, weeks before the coronavirus lockdown and health protocols were enforced.

Baguio Boy takes Oath as PNP Chief before Duterte

President Rodrigo Duterte has administered the oathtaking and donning of rank of newly-appointed Police General Camilo Cascolan as the new chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in a ceremony at the Malacañang Golf (MALAGO) Clubhouse in Manila on Sept. 7, 2020.

Cascolan is the first Baguio resident to become CPNP.

Cascolan is one of the police generals who crafted Oplan Double Barrel, the police's bible in anti-drug operations under the Duterte administration which institutionalized Oplan High-Value Target and Oplan TokHang.

Cascolan is also among the generals called the "Davao boys" for enjoying links with President Duterte, serving multiple times in the Davao Region.

Cascolan also belongs to PMA Class of 1986 - the same class as Gamboa, Albayalde, and Dela Rosa. Among them, Cascolan considers former top cop Dela Rosa as one of his closest friends.
