 Pursuant to Executive Order Number 103 dated May 17, 2002, Region IV was divided into Region 4A or CALABARZON and Region 4B or MIMAROPA.  MIMAROPA stands for MI – Mindoro Occidental and Oriental, MA – Marinduque, RO – Romblon and PA – Palawan.  Consistent with the mandates of Executive Order No. 103, the PNP General Order Number DPL 02-10 dated August 18, 2002 was issued which calls for the deactivation of Police Regional Office 4 and the activation of Police Regional Office 4A or CALABARZON and the Police Regional Office 4B or MIMAROPA.  The two (2) new Police Regional Offices were activated on September 1, 2002 and since then, continued to perform well towards the realization of the PNP vision and the accomplishment of the PNP mission.

With the government intent to promote regional development in order to spur and accelerate economic growth in the countryside, Executive Order Number 682 was signed on November 22, 2007 which states among the others that the City of Calapan in Oriental Mindoro has been designated as the Regional Center of Region 4B otherwise referred to as MIMAROPA Region.             On January 12, 2009 pursuant to Executive Order Number 682, the Regional Director of  PRO MIMAROPA, PCSUPT LUISITO TINIO PALMERA and his Staff spearheaded the turn-over of Office equipments and facilities of its former Regional Headquarters in Camp Vicente Lim, Calamba City to PRO CALABARZON and transferred to its new Regional Headquarters at Camp Efigenio C Navarro in Barangay Suqui, Calapan City.

The Camp traces its history during the Japanese occupation. On January 20, 1945, after the province was liberated from Japanese Imperial Army, all guerilla forces were reorganized. Major Ramon Ruffy assumed the Command as the first Provincial Commander until 1946. On June 17, 1945, a newly organized unit which was designated as 53rd Military Police Coy with the strength of 150 enlisted men and 4 officers arrived from Cebu with Captain Jarmilla as its Commanding Officer.  Camp General Efigenio C Navarro was named after General Efiginio C Navarro, a native of Bano, Pangasinan who served as Provincial Commander of the 262nd PC Company based at this Camp from February 1967-August 17, 1970.  The camp was named after Gen Navarro because of the legacy he left to the Province. During his incumbency, crime rate in the province considerably decreased due to the civic action he introduced to the masses. Every detachment under his unit undertook the manufacture of toilet bowls which were sold to the barrio schools and rural areas for P3.00 each. Handicrafts, dressmaking, tailoring and other household jobs were also taught in the barrios because of the coordinating efforts of the Philippine Constabulary under his watch. As a result, all forms of illegal vices were totally eradicated. When he retired, the Nationalista Party (NP) fielded then retired General Efigenio C Navarro as their candidate for Governor of Mindoro Oriental but he lost the race to to Atty. Hicoblino M Catly of the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan  who won the Local Election on January 30, 1980.  The camp is military reservation of 15.63 hectartes and presently occupied by the Mindoro Oriental Police Provincial office, 409th Police Provincial Mobile Group and other Regional Support Units. Hence, Mindoro Police Provincial Office is co-located with PRO MIMAROPA Regional Headquarters.
