PRO1 bags Gold Eagle Award

CAMP BGEN OSCAR M FLORENDO- Barely five days after receiving the Best Police Regional Office award, the PRO 1 here was given the Gold Eagle Award for achieving a 97.27% rating in the Proficiency Stage of the PNP PRO1 Peace and Order Agenda for Transformation and Upholding of the Rule of Law (P.A.T.R.O.L.) Plan 2030.

PRO1 Regional Director Chief Superintendent Charlo C. Collado together with the Command Group and Regional Advisory Council (RAC) received the award during the conferment of PGS proficient status held at the PNP Multi-Purpose Center in Camp Crame on August 14 which coincided with the 5th Founding Anniversary of the Center for Police Strategy Management (CPSM).

Collado was elated over this achievement which he considers as one step farther in the journey of PRO1 transformation.

“Garnering this award is not mine to take; this is an achievement of every personnel of PRO1 who worked hard to make this transformation a reality for Region 1 police. This is indeed an inspiration for PRO1 to further re-ignite the commitment for a highly capable, effective and credible police service,” Collado said.

The Regional Director also thanked the PRO1 RAC for their support and contribution to PRO1 and vowed to continue what PRO1 has started and strengthen the PNP’s resolve to fight criminality and ensure safety of the community through the strict implementation of Project Double Barrel: Reloaded and compliance to the PNP P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030.

A Gold Eagle Award is conferred to a PNP unit that garners an overall rating of 95 to 100 percent in a certain stage of the PNP Performance Governance System (PGS).

This is the second award received by PRO 1 in less than a week since it was cited as the Best Police Regional Office during the celebration of the 116th Police Service Anniver-sary last August 9.

Collado received the award from President Rodrigo Duterte, assisted by PNP Chief Director General Ronald M. Dela Rosa in a ceremony also held at Camp Crame.

The Vigan City Police Station in Ilocos Sur under the helm of Police Supt. Marlo A. Castillo was also adjudged as the Best Component City Police Station nationwide during the anniversary celebration.

Senior Police Officer 2 Harold V. Nicolas of Laoag City Police Station and Police Officer 2 Jhan Lay P. Apostol of San Nicolas Police Station both in Ilocos Norte were also awarded as Best Senior Police Non-Commissioned Officer for Operations and Best Junior PNCO for Operations, respectively.
