SAN FERNANDO CITY -- A policeman from Urdaneta City, Pangasinan, was conferred the "Medalya ng Papuri" (Commendation Medal) after he returned a bag containing documents and bank checks amounting to P200,000 to its owner.
Chief Superintendent Reynaldo Biay, deputy regional director for administration of the Police Regional Office (PRO)-Ilocos, conferred the award on Senior Police Officer 1 Noli Lee Teope, a member of the Urdaneta City Police Station in Pangasinan, on September 18.
