Rommel Marbil appointed as new PNP chief

MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has appointed Police Major General Rommel Francisco Marbil as the new chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Marbil is taking the helm of the PNP after General Benjamin Acorda retired from service. Acorda was supposed to retire in December 2023, but Marcos extended his term until March 31, 2024.

The 30th PNP chief said that his leadership will focus on enhancing the knowledge and professionalism of PNP personnel, expanding their ability to maintain order and fight crimes, and increasing public trust in the police force.

Prior to his appointment as the country’s top cop, Marbil served as the head of PNP’s Directorate for Comptrollership.  He also led the Eastern Visayas regional police and the PNP Highway Patrol Group.

Marbil was a member of the Philippine Military Academy’s Class of 1991 like Acorda.

Malacañang announced on Sunday that Marcos had designated Police Lieutenant General Emmanuel Peralta as the officer-in-charge of PNP.

Peralta’s appointment is effective only until a “replacement is appointed.” — Gaea Katreena Cabico
