The 1st PNP Incident Writing and Public Speaking contests were held recently at the PNP Provincial Headquarters in Agan-an, Sibulan, Negros Oriental, in line with the 20th PNP Day celebration.
The contests were aimed to determine who among the police officers have potential skills in writing for the PNP publication, and have good speaking skills for the television and radio programs of the PNP.
Majority of the participants came from the Police Community Relations Office of the different police stations in the province.
SPO3 Candido Pacalan of the Jimalalud police station won first prize both in the incident writing and public speaking contests. He bested 15 other participants.
PO2 John Soreno Galo of Sibulan police station got 82.6 percent for public speaking and was also second place winner for the incident writing contest, while PO2 Novo Carros of Bais City got 81.4 percent for the public speaking as third place winner.
PO3 Hilarona Villanueva of the Zamboanguita police station got the third place for the incident writing.
Among the 25 police stations, only Valencia, Basay and Mabinay failed to send representatives.
All winners got certificates and cash prizes from PNP Provincial Director, Senior Supt. Rey Lyndon Lawas, after the flag-raising ceremony Monday.
Lawas presented his plan to come up with at least a quarterly publication that will present all the events and happenings of the PNP in the province.
The publication will also include the different programs and projects of the PNP, so that it will be made known to the community.
He believes that a closer relationship between the PNP and the community would promote a stronger foundation towards strengthening the peace and order program of the province.*MA
