BACOLOD CITY, April 3 (PNA) — Chief Supt. Noel Gicano Constantino, the new director of Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) in Silang, Cavite, is a native of this city.
PNPA, the top training school for police force and future police officers, is the Philippine National Police’s equivalent of the military’s Philippine Philippine Military Academy in Baguio City.
Prior to his appointment as PNPA director, Constantino served as PNP’s deputy director of the directorate for personnel and records management.
PNP Director General Alan Purisima has instructed Constantino to institute reforms in PNPA’s management, increase the standards of training and improve the quality of its graduates.
Constantino finished his elementary and secondary studies from the Immaculate Conception School and St. Joseph School- La Salle in Brgy. Villamonte, Bacolod City in 1975 and 1979, respectively.
In 1984, he graduated from PMA and was installed to rank of Chief Superintendent by then Chief PNP Director General Nicanor A. Bartolome on Sept. 7, 2012. (PNA)
