JAEN, Nueva Ecija – Fourteen police and medical frontliners who survived coronavirus infection were accorded appreciation by the municipal government and the Nueva Ecija police provincial office here Monday.
Mayor Sylvia Austria and Nueva Ecija police director Col. Marvin Joe Saro led the awarding of certificates of recognition to the police personnel led by Major Baltazar Corpuz, chief of police, as well as municipal health office chief Dr. Benny Lopez and a nurse who had been infected with and recovered from Covid-19.
Aside from the certificates, they also received cash incentives from the municipal government and baskets of fruits and goods from the provincial police office and ACT-CIS Partylist.
“Dahil sa pagsasakripisyo ng ating nga kapulisan at mga medical frontliners, binigyan natin sila ng certificate of appreciation at halagang P10,000 bawat isa at sa mga head ay P20,000,” Austria said.
The non-uniformed personnel received P5,000 each.
Austria thanked Saro and the police for relentlessly guarding the municipality against “ill wills” and for the enforcement of health protocols.
Saro, for his part, expressed relief that the policemen have recovered from the virus.
“Una sa lahat, kami’y natutuwa na ang mga pulis na nagka-Covid dito sa Jaen police station ay naka-recover na lahat,” the provincial police chief said. “Ito rin ay isang testamento na ang Covid-19 ay kaya nating mapagtagumpayan.”
“Ang ginawa po namin ngayon ay gusto naming magbigay pugay, mag-encourage at magbigay inspirasyon sa ating mga kapulisan,” he added.
Vice Mayor Luisito Austri and members of the sangguniang bayan joined the ceremonies.
Meanwhile, the municipal government is set to turn-over a new mobile patrol car to the Jaen police.
