The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG)-Misamis Oriental joined the Philippine National Police (PNP) in the commemoration of the 121st Police Service Anniversary held on September 19, 2022, at the Misamis Oriental Police Provincial Office (MORPPO), Parade Ground, San Martin, Villanueva, Misamis Oriental.
Anchored with the theme, “Matibay na Ugnayan ng Pulisya at Mamamayan tungo sa Pagkakaisa, Kapayapaan at Kaunlaran,” DILG Misamis Oriental Provincial Director Marisia C. Naybe served as the guest of honor and shared inspirational words to the PNP.
“To be kind is more important than to be right. Many times, what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks, but a special heart that listens,” she expressed.
The said celebration commemorated the founding of the former Philippine Constabulary — the country’s first insular police force.
With the leadership of PNP Provincial Director Gonzalo C. Villamor, Jr., PNP Personnel and units were awarded during the celebration to formally recognize their excellent efforts in public service especially in maintaining the peace and order and public safety in the province of Misamis Oriental.
Further, PD Naybe added that “to make a difference in the community and someone’s life, you don’t need to be brilliant, rich, beautiful, or perfect, you just have to care.” (𝘋𝘐𝘓𝘎 𝘔𝘪𝘴𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘴 𝘖𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘭/𝘔. 𝘔𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘩𝘰𝘯)
