Cordillera - Senior Police Officer 2 Noren Bandao was awarded with the “Medalya ng Sugatang Magiting” or the Wounded Personnel Medal by Police Regional Office – Cordillera Regional Director Police Chief Superintendent Rolando Nana on Tuesday, July 17. Bandao was honored for his courageous act and bravery for risking his own life despite being off duty.
According to police reports, Bandao, a resident of  Windy Hill in Buyagan La Trinidad, Benguet responded to a call for police assistance early morning of July 14. A robbery on the neighborhood was reported so Bandao immediately responded. He was about to make an arrest when the suspect shot him on the face. But before losing consciousness, he was able to fire back and shot the suspect.
The suspect was identified as Jonathan Mayangao Cabradilla. He was the leader of Cabradilla Robbery Group, a notorious crime group operating nationwide. He was previously arrested in Cotabato, Bambang Nueva Vizcaya and La Trinidad for robbery. Further investigations revealed that he had been using fictitious names as Jemark Isong Lipangen “aka” Jomar Pagang Mayangao. He is a resident of Irisan, Baguio City but his remains was brought to his hometown in Bauko, Mountain Province.
Bandao was initially brought to Benguet General Hospital by concerned citizens and was later transferred to Pines City Hospital for further treatment where he received his award while waiting for his operation. 
Aside from the medal, Bandao also received cash incentive awards while Nana assured that the PNP will take care of his hospital bills.
Likewise, Benguet Police Provincial Office PSSupt. Lyndon Mencio committed to provide security and ensure Bandao and his family’s safety given the suspect’s background.
