A PERSONNEL assigned with the headquarters of the Police Regional Office (PRO)-Zamboanga Peninsula has topped the latest National Police Commission (Napolcom) Police Officer 4th Class Examination.
The PRO-Zamboanga Peninsula named the personnel as Patrolwoman Fatima Al-hamra Kalayakan, who topped the examination with a score of 88.25 percent.
Kalayakan is presently assigned at Regional Community Affairs Development Division of PRO-Zamboanga Peninsula headquarters.

Police Brigadier General Bowenn Joey Masauding, acting PRO-Zamboanga Peninsula director, lauded the feat of Kalayakan.
“I am immensely proud of this achievement. Let this be an encouragement to all personnel to strive hard for excellence,” Masauding said.
