CAMP GENERAL ALEJO S. SANTOS, City of Malolos — PCol Rommel Javier Ochave is the new Acting Provincial Director of the Bulacan Police Provincial Office (Bul PPO).


Ochave replaced PCol Manny Lukban Jr who only served as the Acting Provincial Director of Bulacan PPO for roughly three months.
The new Bulacan top cop belonged to the Philippine National Police Academy Class of 1996. 
Prior to his new assignement, Col. Ochave was the Chief of the Intelligence Division of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG). 
Ochave made a point of performing his new mandated task as the new Acting PD of Bulacan PNP with commitment and benevolence. 
He also affirmed that the entire force of the Bulacan PNP with the help and support of the community will continue its unceasing endeavor in the implementation of the intensified campaign against illegal drugs and terrorism, and will curb all forms of criminality to ensure that the May 2022 NLE will be peaceful in the entire province of Bulacan.


Moreover, as the election period kicks off eight new Chief of Police in different Cities/Municipalities of Bulacan were designated namely: PMaj Rodrigo Shagun as, Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of Angat Police Station; PMaj Michael Ray Udal as OIC of Balagtas Police Station; PLt Col. Julius Alvaro as OIC of Baliwag Police; PMaj Leopoldo Estorque Jr as OIC of Bustos Police; PLTCol Wendel Arinas as the new  OIC of Calumpit Police Station; PLtCol Isagani Enriquez as OIC of Guiguinto Police; PMaj Gregorio Santos as OIC of Obando Police; PMaj karl Yuzon Jr. as OIC of Paombong Police; PLtCol Allan Palomo, OIC of CSJDM Police; PLtCol Luis Guisic, OIC of San Rafael Police and PMaj Michael Santos as OIC of 2nd PMFC.


The reshuffle, which took effect on January 7, 2022, was part of the PNP’s normal procedure in which officers who have served and been assigned in their areas for a long time were replaced to prevent them from being too familiar with local officials.


As the May 9, 2022, National and Local Elections approach, the Bulacan Police Department will remain apolitical and impartial, and will not engage in any partisan political activities. 
Any personnel found to be in violation will face administrative sanctions.
