PHILIPPINE National police chief Director General Ronald ‘Bato’ M. dela Rosa yesterday swear  into
office newly-promoted Chief Supt. Norberto D. Solomon, the director of the PNP Intelligence Group.

Solomon became the second member of Philippine Military Academy ‘Makatarungan’ Class of 1989 to
become a one-star police general after Chief Supt. Valeriano T. de Leon, the director of the PNP
Firearms and Explosives Office.
    
The PNP-IG is the main police unit tasked to go after enemies of the state specifically the New
People’s Army and Southern Philippines-based terror groups. Under Solomon, the PNP-IG has silently
accounted for some of the country’s most wanted persons, including a number of ranking NPA
personalities and Abu Sayyaf Group leaders this year.
