SAN FERNANDO CITY – Three police superintendents are eyed to replace the present chief of police of Dagupan City.
Supt. Jeffrey Fanged

According to a high ranking police source, who asked anonymity, Superintendents Jeffrey Fanged, Roland Sacyat, and Jackie Candelario are the primary candidates to be the police chief of the premier city in Region 1.
 The rank of Superintendent is equivalent to a Lieutenant Colonel in the military.
Fanged and Candelario are batchmates at Class 1999 of the Philippine National Police Academy while Sacyat is member of PNPA Class 2000.
“Among the three, two of the strong contenders for the post in Dagupan  would be Fanged and Sacyat,” the source cited.
Fanged is presently assigned as the chief of police (COP) of Urdaneta City, while Candelario and Sacyat are posted as the Deputy Provincial Director on Operation at the Police Provincial Office in Lingayen, Pangasinan and COP of Malasiqui, Pangasinan, respectively.
The source said that Dagupan City’s COP Superintendent Christopher Abrahano would be leaving anytime from now for his career advancement study in Laguna and Camp Crame, Quezon City.

“He will be taking in Camp Crame his OSEC (Officer Senior Executive Course), the equivalent of the General Staff College (course) in the military, his last requirement for his promotion for full colonel in 2018 or 2019,” the source cited.
The prestigious position of the top cop in Dagupan City has been being glamorized by the media as most of the COP assigned there became not only Chief Superintendent (one star general in the Army) but became Chief of the Philippine National Police like former Director General Hermogenes Ebdane.

Former chiefs who became generals, who were all alumni of the Philippine Military Academy were  Roberto “Boysie” Rosales , Wendy Rosario, Manuel Barcena, Edgar Basbas to  name a few.
Abrahano is the first PNPA alumnus who became COP in the city after he was appointed in 2012 by former Mayor Benjie S. Lim and retained by incumbent Mayor Belen Fernandez when she defeated Lim in the May 2013 election.
The longest serving chief of Dagupan was Boysie Rosales as he served the city twice under Mayor (Al) Fernandez while Abrahano served Dagupan for four years,” the source said.
He said that starting on July, mayors in the four cities and 44 towns Pangasinan would execute their prerogatives to choose the chief of police from a list of five eligible officers recommended by the provincial police director.
This act is mandated by the Republic Act 8551 or the Philippine National Police Reform and Reorganization Act of 1998.
"Many OIC chiefs of police would be replaced," he cited.
