THE Police Regional Office (PRO) Central Luzon was hailed as the best police regional office during the 120th Police Service Anniversary on Thursday, September 23, 2021, at Camp Crame, Quezon City.

PRO-Central Luzon received the recognition -- the first for PRO-Central Luzon since the past two decades -- after besting 16 other police regional offices across the country.

PRO-Central Luzon Director Brigadier General Valeriano De Leon personally received the award from Philippine National Police Chief General Guillermo Eleazar.

De Leon commended the efforts of Central Luzon policemen in ensuring peace and order in the region and delivering the needed public service even amidst the pandemic.

“This recognition will surely lift the spirits of our PRO Central Luzon personnel as we work tirelessly to fulfill our commitment of fighting criminality and wiping out illegal drugs in the region,” De Leon said.

He also cited the participation of local government units and other stakeholders in ensuring the safety of communities in Central Luzon.

“We also share this feat with our stakeholders and all local government units who have been extending their unyielding support, we dare to soar and aim at raising ourselves to keep on delivering excellent police services to the people of Central Luzon ignited on our desire to continuously carry out our mantra, ‘To Serve is our Passion, To Protect is our Action,’” De Leon said.
