The Birth of the Directorate
On October 12, 1993, letter of then Chief PNP Umberto A. Rodriguez designated Gen. Honesto P. Bumanglag to head DHRDD, which was immediately approved by the President of the Republic the following day. DHRDD was formally activated on November 1, 1993, followed by the activation of its HRDD regional offices. Upon its activation, it assumed the existing organizational structure, functions and acquired the human resources and manpower, and equipment of the Training Division of the Directorate for Operations, which, in turn, ensured the smooth turnover of its assets to DHRDD.
