Cordillera - A proud Igorota officer, PMAJ Jonalyn B. Malnat, is the class commander of the Basic Helicopter Pilot Training (BHPT) Class 2020 of the Philippine National Police - Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) air unit.

PMAJ Malnat,  the only woman in the class to have received the Leadership Award in the just concluded BHPT on November 8, 2021.

In 2006, Malnat joined the Special Action Force or SAF, which is the Elite Force Unit of the PNP and became the president of the 'Matatag' Class.

Joining the SAF, PMAJ Malnat experienced hardship, low morale and mixed feelings while undergoing the training. She experienced tears, sweat, joint pain, body aches and almost all the pain inside the training center.

But those hardships did not stop her, instead it became a challenge for her to continue and fulfill one of her dreams in life - to become a full -fledged Policewoman.

After six months in the training center, she was ranked Top 1 of the Public Safety Basic Recruit Course (PSBRC) Class 2007.

To be a full -fledged 'Tagaligtas', PMAJ Malnat underwent the Commando Course where she experienced more pain and hardship than what she experienced when she trained at PSBRC. 

Despite the hardships and despite being a woman, she was presented as Top 3- of SAF Commando Course CL 47-2008 out of 100 who underwent the training.

In 2011, she was blessed and fortunate to be included in the PNP Lateral Entry Class "PINAGPALA" where she once again proved that she was truly blessed like her class name until she became a full-fledged Police Lieutenant.

Although a full -fledged officer, she has not stopped taking various mandatory and specialized courses in Operation, Intelligence, Investigation and Police Community Relations with the PNP, AFP and private institutions.

During her fourteen years of service, she has received countless awards, including being named SAF Best Junior PCO for Administration at the 37th SAF Founding Anniversary in 2020. In addition, she is also one of the winners among the Ten Outstanding APOLE Members (TOAM) 2020 at the 7th Lateral Entry Day Celebration in conjunction with the 17th Year Anniversary and National Convention on December 17, 2020.

PMAJ Malnat traces her roots from Tungngod, Lagawe, Ifugao and the fourth of six children of Mr. Pablo G Malnat Sr. and Mrs. Linda B Malnat. She grew up and lived simply with a family where his parents were both farmers.

She is the current Assistant Chief, Operations Branch and OIC of the Police Community Relations Section, PNP SAF, Air Unit and our “My Police, My Inspiration”.
