New Benguet PNP chief told to sustain ’culture of peace’
by Harley Palangchao

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The newly installed director of the Benguet Police Office has been challenged to maintain the “culture of peace” that reigns in the province for generations now.

S/Supt. Rodolfo Azurin received the order from Police Regional Office-Cordillera Director Benjamin Magalong when he assumed the Benguet top post replacing S/Supt. Benjamin Lusad on Thursday.

Azurin, a member of Philippine Military Academy Class 1989, held various key positions in the PNP before his assignment in Benguet.

Azurin finished his primary and secondary education at the Benguet State University.

Gov. Nestor Fongwan, who attended the turnover rites along with members of the provincial board, asked the new police director to sustain the gains of the programs and projects set by his predecessor.

Benguet police is regarded as one of the best units nationwide, owing to the command’s efforts in making the province one of the most peaceful and progressive areas in the country.

Among the noted accomplishments of provincial police during Lusad’s stint is the launching of the Benguet Mounted Police Unit, which ensures police mobility and presence in hard-to-reach areas, especially tourism sites like Mt. Pulag.

The Mounted Police Unit concept was formally presented in Camp Crame for replication in other areas of the country.

Lusad, the second youngest member of PMA Class 1985, also initiated the formation of the first Special Weapons and Tactics, which earned a distinction in a competition participated in by elite forces of the PNP and Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Lusad also initiated the training of police officers in karatedo, with some of them earning blackbelts in the sports.

Azurin vowed to sustain the gains of the Benguet police especially in improving peacekeeping efforts.

These programs entail stronger networking with the local government units and the private sector, full use of the geographical information system-based crime investigation, and improved human resource management.
