The awardees are PEMS Edwin B. Gubiangan, PCMS Marion A Gacayan, PCpl Larry M Puguon, PCpl Leo F. Marrero, Sgt Charles D del Rosario and PFC Jay-r P. Valaquio.

The family survived the horrendous night with the help of the police and soldiers who sacrificed their lives even though they knew the area was at a focal point of the NPA's ambush.

PNP Chief Police General Oscar David Albayalde congratulated all the awardees for their remarkable performance of duties. 

"Your good work, dedication to duty and your deep commitment to the ideals of service, honor, and justice are the best tributes you can render to our forebears," Albayalde said.

Benguet Provincial Police Officers went the extra mile on their outreach program at Talinguroy Elementary School

PNP Officers, parent and teachers at TES
Benguet- Cordilleran police officers from the Philippine National Police (PNP)-Benguet Provincial Police Office (BPPO) went beyond their law and order enforcement duties to extending their outreach programs in the education sector.

Led by PLTCOL. Tessie Sarmiento, the group of snappy police officers from Benguet volunteered as teachers  for a day at Talinguroy Elementary School in Wangal, La Trinidad. Like teachers usually do, they danced, sang, and taught the children in the classroom. They even prepared some food and had a boodle fight lunch with everyone.

On her Facebook post, the school principal Dr. Agnes Malinias expressed her heartfelt appreciation to the BPPO and Police Officer volunteers for such a memorable experience they imparted to the school children of TES.

"Thank you sirs and ma'ams from the Benguet Police Provincial Office for the time, effort, resources and love you gave to the learners of Talinguroy Elementary School. You acted as their advisers, music teachers, values education teacher, and physical education teacher. Indeed you left a wonderful experience in the hearts of the children which they really treasure throughout their life," Dr. Malinias said.



Police officers are indeed heroes not only in the eyes of the children but also in the community they serve. The BPPO's program in developing community relations through reaching out to schools and working hand in hand with teachers in educating the young  is really commendable.
