PLtGen Sermonia extended his sincerest appreciation and gratitude to the PNP Foundation, Inc. and the Firstlight. “To the recipients of this equipment, I wish you would take care of it as if it is your own, so that it would last”, PLtGen Sermonia added.
“As we mobilize our police units in the field through the Kasimbayanan and our security framework MKK=K or the Malasakit, Kaayusan at Kapayapaan tungo sa Kaunlaran” to make the PNP into a stronger and responsive police organization, we also have to enhance the competence of our police officers by giving them the necessary equipment”, PLtGen Sermonia further added.
