The Police Regional Office-9 (PRO-9) has awarded the Medalya ng Kagalingan (Medal of Merit) to six policemen assigned in the province of Zamboanga del Norte for having demonstrated exemplary performance while in the line of duty.

Senior Supt. Sofronio Ecaldre, OIC-Regional Chief Directorial Staff, named the awardees as the following: Chief Insp. Joseph Maulad; SPO2 Marlon Patulot; SPO1 Dexter Descallar; PO3 Samuel Buban; PO2 Florencio Cariño; and, PO2 Victor Dubal.

The awardees are assigned at the municipal police station of Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte.

Ecaldre said the exemplary performance and invaluable service the awardees rendered led to the arrest of Alberto Garces alias Al, a known drug personality in Siocon town.

Ecaldre said Garces was arrested in a recent police operation in Barangay J.P. Brillantes, Siocon municipality.

He said the arresting team confiscated from the possession of Garces, at the time of his arrest, a calibre .22 handgun, an improvised shotgun locally known as shotgun, and five heat-seal plastic sachets of methamphetamine hydrochloride locally known as shabu.

He said the awardees “have demonstrated the kind of dedication and commitment to public service and earned immeasurable honor and respect not only for themselves by also for the entire PNP organization as well, worthy of praise and emulation.”
