Cordillera - President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed retired Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Camilo Pancratius Cascolan as undersecretary at the Chief executive's office, Malacanang said on Wednesday. 

In a Palace press briefing, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced Duterte signed Cascolan appointment letter as Undersecretary of the Office of the President last Monday. 

Kinukumpirma po natin na napirmahan na noong Lunes, Feb. 22, ang appointment paper ni dating PNP Chief Camilo Cascolan bilang Undersecretary sa Office of the President (We confirm that the appointment paper of former PNP Chief Camilo Cascolan as Undersecretary of the President was signed last Monday). Welcome aboard, Usec. Cascolan," he said.

Cascolan stepped down from his 2-month stint as chief of the PNP chief when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 56  last November. 

Cascolan who crafted the Oplan Double Barrel, the police force's flagship campaign against illegal drugs was succeeded by current PNP chief Debold Sinas.

Oplan Double Barrel involves the Oplan Tokhang aimed at encouraging the surrender of small-time drug pushers and the Oplan High-Value Target which goes after big-time drug peddlers.

Meanwhile Cascolan thanked the President for his appointment.

In a separate interview Cascolan said, “Of course, it’s an honor for me to serve the President. I just hope I could keep step with his standards and I will do my best,” he said.

He said he has yet to report at the OP since he received his appointment on Tuesday but “accordingly, I will be with the office of special concerns.”

“With my current position, whatever the President tells me, I will do my best of course,” he added.
