The 10th Police Regional Mobile Group (PRMG) undergoes significant changes and modification brought about by time, shift in governmental administration and circumstantial necessity. Formerly known as the Elite Force 57th PC Battalion prior to its dissolution and became the Regional Special Action Company (RSAC) way back in June 12, 1983. The first Company Officer was then 1Lt Arnulfo Espiritu followed by Capt. Tito Cagurangan, Major Reyes and Capt. Rogelio Bacayana of the defunct PC/INP, a major command of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). Initially, the company serves as the Striking Force or the operating unit of the region to counter terrorist and counter subversion.
The year 1993 however, witnessed the gradual resurgence of lawlessness and subversion in the country. With this regard, the NHQ at Camp Crame trained a group of PNP Special Action Force and deploy it to the different region nationwide to revive and continue the fight against insurgency. They were tasked to train, re-train, and re-fresh every men in uniform about the Special Counter-Insurgency Operation Unit Training (SCOUT). This trend led to the re-structuring of the RMF that brought about into action on 05 October 1996 the National Award winner - Police Regional Mobile Group 10. The first Group Director was PSUPT Oscar Dacoycoy Aguda followed by PSUPT Rodulfo Miñosa, the late PSUPT Eduardo Navarro, PSUPT Lyndel A Desquitado, PSUPT Diosdado B Bastismo Sr, PSUPT William T Manzan and PSUPT Celso Gomera Regencia from 2004 to 2007. Presently, the Group is under the command of PSUPT Gerardo Manubay Rosales, MPSM.
