Talibon PNP Station Recipient of “Silver Eagle Award”
Early morning of May 30, 2016, during the Monday “Flag Ceremony” ritual, the Talibon Police Force, led by its Chief Police PSI Eduard A. Sanchez, proudly showed off to the crowd the prestigious “Silver Eagle Award” with accompanying compliant certificates which they received from the Bohol Police Provincial Office, Camp Francisco Dagohoy, Tagbilaran City, Bohol.
The same award and certificates were formally handed over to Mayor Restituto B. Auxtero at his office by Chief Sanchez with the presence of Talibon DILG Officer, Maura M. Justol together with some members of the police force.
The award and certificates were given last May 23, 2016 in recognition for the Talibon PNP Station’s outstanding commitment and unwavering support in the effective implementation of PNP Patrol P.L.A.N. 2030 for the attainment of a “highly capable, effective and credible police service”.
Chief Sanchez, with the help of SPO2 Jose Bongator, explained the rigid process that the station underwent in order to earn the award. They were made to present the Station’s primary and secondary initiatives and programs in determining the function of the PNP in crime prevention and in crime solution which includes the enhancement of police community engagement, intensified police operations, intelligence and counter operations.
Bongator revealed that in their effort to upgrade their system, LGU Talibon, thru Mayor Auxtero, gave its full support by providing the much needed internet connection, 3 sets of computers, and answered their need for CCTV cameras to be installed in key areas in Poblacion.
The Talibon Police Station also underwent a makeover and their offices are now fully air conditioned. Not only that, he also said that they will be a recipient of a P300T worth of vests for the protection of the police force in the pursuit of lawless criminals. LGU Talibon is now in the process of purchasing the vests.
As explained by PSI Sanchez, the PNP Performance Government System (PGS) has four stages that include initiation, compliance, proficiency and institutionalization with the end-purpose of addressing organizational dysfunctions identified by studies and improve the quality of police service delivery in the country. It also aims to strengthen law enforcement capabilities and enhance the welfare and benefits of PNP personnel. The Silver Eagle Award shows that a police unit passed the scrutiny of Camp Crame in the initiation stage.
The PNP PGS also gives much emphasis on private-public sector partnership and considers the initiatives and support of ordinary citizens. Thus the full support of LGU Talibon helped much in the process. Aside from the LGU, contributions from the private-public sector, embodied by the Municipal Advisory Council (MAC), were tapped.
The MAC is composed of retired teacher, Enrique J. Carosus, Jr (Chairman), and members: Hon. Expedito F. Abuan (new Councilor-elect), Atty. Jimmie T. Credo, Rev. Herodotus U. Galambao Sr., Hon. Imelda B. Polo (Barangay Captain), Rogelio O. Sabior and Reneirio Sobior.
Sharing the limelight with LGU Talibon and the Council, Chief Sanchez handed Mayor Auxtero and each member of the MAC with certificates of appreciation for their assistance. He acknowledged that with their support, they achieved much and thus coveted the acclaimed “Silver Eagle Award”. Hopefully, in the near future, they will acquire the Gold. (ellenmarieobuno)
