BALER, Aurora, November 29, 2011-Eight most outstanding police officers in Central Luzon were awarded Friday night by Deputy Director General Arturo G. Cacdac of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Deputy Chief for Operations in partnership with JBT Group of Companies under Jose B. Tan at Camp Olivas, San Fernando City Pampanga.
Senior Police Officer 2 (SPO2) Desiderio ‘Ding’ Noora of Aurora provincial police office was awarded Police Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year (PNCO) together with SPO2 Danilo Nazareno-Bataan PPO, while SPO1 Shirley Mostoles-Olongapo CPO and PO2 Norbelita Ingaw-Tarlac PPO for the Women Police Services category.
Other awardees in the region were Superintendent Edgar Alan Okubo, Nueva Ecija Police Provincial Office (PPO) director, and Supt. Rommel Velasco, Bataan PPO director for the Senior Police Commissioned Officer (PCO) category.
Under the junior PCO category, the awardees were Chief Inspector Luisito Tan of the Angeles City Police Office and Chief Insp. Pascual delos Reyes of the Tarlac PPO.
Supt. Romeo de Castro, Central Luzon PNP spokesman said in a telephone interview that this was the first time that JBT Group of Companies gave recognition to PNP.
“It was timely since the program of the police dubbed, ‘Strengthening the Reward and Disciplinary System of the PNP,” as among the priority thrusts of Director General Nicanor Bartolome in his 10 Point Action Plan,” de Castro said.
However, he said that they will also be swift and decisive in punishing the misfits, undisciplined or scalawag police.
“Police awardees were given P30,000 each and trophy from the JBT Group of Companies which sponsored the event last Friday,” de Castro said.
Central Luzon PNP Chief Superintendent Edgardo Ladao, regional police director, said that the awardees were chosen based on their accomplishments in maintaining the stability of peace and order situation in their respective area of responsibility and also in pursuing crime suspects.
Ladao said that the screening of awardees was held by the panel of Judges after its meticulous process of evaluation, verification of documents, performance, accomplishments and interviews of all nominees in the entire region which the selection board were the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Director Florida Dijan, National Police Commission (Napolcom) Regional Director Manuel Pontanal, Commission on Higher Education Officer-in-Charge Virginia Akiate, and Monsignor Eugenio Mercado.
Meanwhile, as of this writing Noora was lauded by the people of Aurora saying that he deserved the additional feathers in his cap, a model family man, devoted policeman, and a layman. (Jason de Asis)
