To be appointed as the Chief PNP is a rare opportunity, but comes with the challenges of good leadership and meeting the high expectations of the Filipino people. I accept these challenges.
I express my sincerest gratitude to our Commander-In-Chief, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, for choosing me to be among the instruments of his genuine intention of having a well-disciplined and professional police force that could always be banked on in enforcing the law and in serving and protecting the Filipino people.
The same sincere gratitude is extended to DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año for always believing in my capability to lead the more than 220,000-strong Philippine National Police.
At higit sa lahat ay nagpapasalamat ako sa Poong Maykapal sa pambihirang pagkakataon na ibinigay niya sa akin upang pagsilbihan ang aking kapwa Pilipino.
Maraming salamat at mabuhay ang PNP!
