During the ceremony, she thanked Task Force Commander Colonel Erwin Bernard Neri for being her “shock absorber” during the days of her delicate pregnancy.

“I’d like to personally express my gratitude to Colonel Neri for being my shock absorber during my pregnancy. As you all know, mga lalaki, pagbuntis ang babae murag buang so he listened to me for almost nine months. Nagyawyawa ko sa kanya sa viber. (As you all know, pregnant women are crazy so he listened to me to almost night months. I rant on him in Viber),” she said.

The mayor also likewise thanked the man on the ground who serve rain or shine.

"Naga painit ug ulan mo diha alang-alang sa pagbantay sa atong siyudad ug pagbantay sa katawhan nga malinawon ang ilang pagpuyo dinhi sa atong siyudad. (You face the heat of the sun and the rain to guard our city in order for them to have a peaceful life in the city)," she said.

Duterte-Carpio also likewise congratulated the awardees for a job well-done and she hoped that their commitment will continue. She also announced that the city government will provide gift certificates to more than 500 members of the Task force.

“As an anniversary token, the city government of Davao prepared a gift, individually, for the members of the task force Davao. I think we received the list of the 500 plus, it did not reach 600,” she said.

The mayor also said that they are happy that Neri is still bound to stay while the AFP is still choosing for the next commander to be assigned in Davao City.
