The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) warmly welcomes Atty. Vitaliano Aguirre II to the DILG family and wishes him well as he assumes office as the new Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer (VCEO) of the National Police Commission (Napolcom).

VCEO Aguirre's vast experience as a lawyer and in government service will prove to be useful as he works together with the DILG Secretary and the NAPOLCOM Commission En Banc in exercising administrative control and supervision over the police force.

With Atty. Aguirre at the helm of NAPOLCOM, the Department expects that he will help professionalize and strengthen the culture of discipline, accountability, and service in the Philippine National Police.

The Department is confident that he will be able to fulfill the marching orders of the President for DILG and NAPOLCOM to institute the necessary reforms and intensify the internal cleansing program to remove the bad eggs that have stained the good name of the PNP.

Together, let us build a better NAPOLCOM and a better police force imbued with integrity and genuine commitment to public service excellence.
