FOR JOB WELL DONE. Police Regional Director B/Gen. Rommel Francisco Marbil bestowed awards to the chief of police of Dolores town, Eastern Samar, and two of his men for their anti-drug campaign. Joining Marbil was town Mayor Rodrigo Rivera.

Awarded by Marbil on Monday (Jan.23) were town police chief Maj. Arthur Daiz, and his men Msg. Romeo Dolio Jr., and Pat. Randy Gulferic.

The local personnel successfully apprehended an illegal drugs suspect operating in the municipality December of last year.

A sachet of illegal drugs and mark money were confiscated from the suspect.

B/Gen Marbil lauded the police officer in performing their duty to address criminality problems particularly on illegal drugs in the municipality.

“This award is bestowed to our policemen who are performing their duty for the safety and benefit of the community,” the police regional director said.

Mayor Rivera, for his part, expressed his gratefulness to the PNP for always being ready to assist the LGU in times of need.
