Department of Interior and Local Government Regional Director Paisal O. Abutazil  graced yesterday the 22nd Philippine National Police celebration held in Camp  Abendan, Mercedes, this city.

During the celebration, six policemen were awarded Medalya ng Kadakilaan and four others Medalya ng Kagalingan.    Medalya ng Kadakilaan was awarded to Sr. Supt. Romeo R. Uy, Supt. Michael P. Palermo, Inspector Heidel Batulog Te-Elan, SPOI Dexter Rato Dalena and POI Rovalage E. Delostrico.

Medalya ng Kagalingan has been awarded to Supt. William Gadayan, Inspector Alan Y. Perpetua, PO3 Mohammad Taupik A. Masakin, PO2 Jose B. Bargamento and POI Al-Khariff L. Nadduha.

Abutazil told policemen that they play very important and crucial role in the society as primary peacekeepers.

He said that police officers are at all times expected to uphold the law, ensure peace and order and promote public safety.

These responsibilities are inherent in the job of a professional police officer and can not be compromised, Abutazil emphasized.

“ Being a member of the police force is never an easy job. It entails so much discipline, dedication, courage and most of all, commitment to genuinely serve the people at all times to the extent of going even beyond the call of duty,” Abutazil said. — Allen Abastillas
