“We honor the women and their significant contributions to society. You are highly capable of bringing about positive changes (which is why) the PNP will always be at the forefront of women empowerment,” Cascolan said.
Cascolan pinned medals to 10 lady police officers for excellently performing their duties that contributed to PRO-Cor’s exceptional accomplishments.
PRO-Cor also recognized women stakeholders for their support to the police organization’s plans and programs.
Awarded for their invaluable contributions to the PNP’s peace and order programs is the Women’s Brigade Federation of La Trinidad.
The La Trinidad Women’s Brigade Federation led by Miranda Bingcola was awarded a plaque of recognition for helping the police maintain peace and order by conducting curfews and checking on minors loitering, among their duties, in their respective communities.
The women’s group has also been tapped by the municipal government to implement ordinances.
Baguio Midland Courier Asst. Editor Jane B. Cadalig was also recognized for her support to the PNP in her capacity as a member of the advisory council of the Benguet Police Provincial Office, representing the media.
She was cited for her participation in the passage of resolutions that led to the organization of federation of barangay peacekeeping action teams in Benguet and resolutions that helped the Benguet police acquire additional assets, such as vehicles and firearms.
“Ang buwan na ito ay pagpupugay sa mga kababaihan at ng inyong mahahalagang ambag sa ating pamayanan. I believe in the ability of women because I have experienced the power of women to bring about change,” Cascolan said. – BMC release
