Eleazar cites cop who saves drowning man, another who helped woman give birth
PHILIPPINE National Police (PNP) chief, General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar on Sunday commended a cop in Bulacan and another in Isabela for providi f true and selfless public service.
Last Friday, Gen. Eleazar said personnel from the Isabela Provincial Mobile Force Company were conducting patrols in Barangay Rang-Ayan in Ilagan town when a group of people sought their help to save a man, later identified as Ramon Domingo, from drowning in the river.
Gen. Eleazar said Patrolman Maynard Llapitan and his companions immediately rescued Domingo.
Llapitan then provided first aid on Domingo.
“Si Patrolman Llapitan ay isang magandang ehemplo sa ating kapulisan. Even as a Patrolman he displayed presence of mind to save a life and manifested selfless public service,” the PNP chief said.
“Isa siya sa mga patunay na napakarami pa din matitinong pulis sa ating hanay. Naniniwala ako na ang mga kagaya ni Llapitan ang makapagsasalba sa imahe ng ating organisasyon,” he added.
In Bulacan, the PNP chief commended Staff Sergeant Babylyn Junio of the Hagonoy Municipal Police Station for helping a woman about to give birth while in a tricycle.
An alert Junio immediately called for rescue and a doctor to help the woman safely deliver her baby.
Gen. Eleazar urged all PNP personnel to follow the examples of Llapitan and Junio as well as other police officers in the past who have done good deeds for the community.
“Sila po ang inyong tularan. Ipakita po natin sa publiko na tayong mga pulis ay kanilang maaasahan para magbigay ng tulong at proteksyon anumang oras,” he urged all policemen.
“Magsilbing inspirasyon sana sila sa inyo na patuloy na tumupad at maging tapat sa ating mandato at gumawa ng kabutihan para sa ating kapwa,” Gen. Eleazar added.
