The new Vice President of Colombia was born in Bogotá in 1956. He is the son of General Francisco José Naranjo, who directed the National Police and passed away in 2015.

Óscar Naranjo Trujillo was a member of the National Police for 36 years, beginning with his admission to the Cadet School and ending as the institution’s director for five years, where he earned the rank of four-star General.

During his tenure, the institution was highly successful in the fight against crime, and he achieved significant progress in the institution’s modernization and in building public trust in the force.

In 2007, he was appointed as Director General of the Police, post where he served until 2012. His administration was characterized by the adoption of innovative concepts on organizational culture, such as police service based on humanitarianism, and strategic management.

Among other acknowledgments for his work, he was awarded Semana magazine’s Tribute to Exemplary Leadership, and recognized as one of the Top 500 most influential public figures in the world by The Power Issue of Foreign Policy magazine.

General Naranjo also directed the Latin American Citizenship Institute of the Technological and Higher Education System of Monterrey (Instituto Latinoamericano de Ciudadanía del Sistema Tecnológico y de Educación Superior de Monterrey), and served as advisor to the Mexican Government.
