LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The Police Regional Office Cordillera received brand new vehicles and equipment to enhance the capability of the police personnel in the region.
M/Gen. Oliver Enmodias, director for Research and Development, turned over eight vehicles, 71 units of enhanced combat helmets, 70 tactical vests, and 218 undershirt vests in a ceremony at the PRO-Cor headquarters at Camp Bado Dangwa here on Oct. 9.
Regional Pastoral Officer Maj. Alexander Pardo together with Enmodias and PRO-Cor Regional Director B/Gen. David Peredo Jr. led the blessing of the new vehicles and equipment which was witnessed by members of the command group, other senior officers, and Cristine, wife of M/Gen. Enmodias.
The equipment will be distributed to different units of PRO-Cor as part of the capability enhancement program of the PNP and in preparation for the upcoming barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.
In his message as the guest of honor and speaker during the flag raising ceremony last week, Enmodias reminded the “most disciplined police officers” of the Cordillera to live by the “Police Officer’s Pledge.”
“To love and serve God, country, and people; to uphold the Constitution and obey the legal orders of the duly constituted authorities; to maintain a high standard of morality and professionalism; to respect the customs and traditions of the police service, and to live a decent and virtuous life to set an example for others,” he said.
Enmodias, Peredo, and other members of the PRO-Cor command group also led the awarding of medals to four deserving personnel for their notable accomplishments.
The visit of Enmodias at the PRO-Cor is part of his sentimental journey prior to his retirement in November.
He also visited the Benguet Provincial Police Office, the Baguio City Police Office, the Mountain Province PPO, and his hometown of Barlig in Mountain Province. – Redjie Melvic Cawis
