by Pops Gumana-Fruylan

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Jan. 3 (PIA) --- PCSupt Lester Camba, Officer-in Charge of the Police Regional Office (PRO) 12 liken the works of police personnel in the region with that “katipuneros”.

Camba branded dedicated policemen as “modern katipuneros” who combat criminalities and lawlessness instead of Spaniards.

“We are tasked to serve our country for the public and be like pillar of indisputable humanitarian organization like Dr. Jose Rizal himself,” Regional Public Information Office quoted Camba, as saying.

During the commemoration of Rizal Day over the weekend, Camba led other personnel in paying tribute to the sacrifices, courage and gallantry of the national hero.

He said the martyrdom of Rizal may serve as an apparent paradigm especially in the profession as police officers.

“May the battle of this great person be an inspiration to everyone and the commemoration of his death be remembered with honor and glory,” Camba said.

Meanwhile, regional public information officer Supt. Resty Damaso, revealed that the commemoration of the death of Dr. Jose Rizal is anchored on the theme, “Rizal: Haligi ng Bayan.”

Damaso expressed his admiration to the national hero who sacrificed his life in order for the Filipinos to attain freedom, by saying “he never waved his right to independence, so that his country men may walk again with dignity and pride.”

He challenged police personnel to repay the sacrifices of Rizal by rekindling the fire of nationalism in their hearts, working harder, and continue to defend liberty and freedom against threatening forces.

“The freedom that he once fought for is the freedom were enjoying now and the democracy that he even gave up his life for, is the same democracy that we are now proud of,” Damaso explained. (PGFruylan/PIA-Gensan)
