THE Police Regional Office 2 in Cagayan Valley headed by Brigadier General Angelito A. Casimiro has consistently topped the Individual Commander’s Evaluation Rating or ICER which is the basis of the Philippine National Police leadership in either retaining or relieving a police director from his post, the Journal Group learned yesterday.
The performance of the Cagayan Valley police force in fighting criminality, drugs, terrorism and rogues in uniform as well as in implementing other administrative functions required by Camp Crame has earned the PRO2 the top place in ICER for three consecutive rating periods from October 21, 2019 to last January 15.
Casimiro ranked No.1 in the ICER nationwide while the PRO2 regained its top spot in the Unit Performance Evaluation Rating among the 17 police regional offices.
During the 1st rating period from October 21, 2019 to November 30, 2019, PRO2 garnered a total percentage score of 78.80 percent.
In the second evaluation rating period from December 1-31, 2019, PRO2 landed No. 2 with a total percentage score of 84.89 percent. During the 3rd evaluation rating period covering January 1 to 15, 2020, PRO2 remained at No. 1 with a cumulative score of 88.73 percent.
ICER is the overall rating of the regional director coming from the total points of UPER, Directorial Staff rating and Focus Directives. UPER, on the other hand is the total points coming from the operational and administrative accomplishments of all the divisions of all police regional offices.
Casimiro commended all the PRO2 personnel who have worked well to maintain their excellent performance rating. “This excellent performance springs from the concerted efforts of the Valley Cops with the active support of stakeholders, other government agencies and the community,” he said.
