their respective regional offices. Loot, 51, a member of Philippine
Military Academy Class 1982, is currently the Deputy Regional Director
for Administration of Police Regional Office-8 (Eastern Visayas)
PCSupt Loot further
said some politicians from
tried to block his promotion and made him undergo a thorough
investigation in every step of the promotion processes.
“Ang sala lang nako
kay bana ko og politician,” Loot said as he enumerated some
qualification standards to get the rank such seniority, length of
service, education, absence of charges, among others.
The promotion starts
with the Senior Officers Placement and Promotion Board after which the
PNP signs the endorsement to the National Police Commission. The
secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government endorses
the papers to the Civil Service Commission, which will check the
records before the same are submitted to the Office of the President
for approval. It took about four to five months before President
Benigno Aquino III approved PCSupt Loot’s promotion on June 3.
He said the promotion
is a challenge and added responsibility for them to live up to the
expectations of the rank. Loot’s family witnessed the oath taking.
