2 cops cited for honesty

February 20, 2020

TWO Camp Crame policemen have been cited by the Philippine National Police leadership for showing that honesty is still the best policy when they returned precious items inadvertently lost by their owners.

Cited for their good deeds by the PNP leadership were Staff Sergeant Marcelino Jul and Patrolman Filmer Labandia, both members of the Special Service Unit of the PNP Headquarters Support Service.

The two will be getting a citation from the PNP Headquarters Support Service headed by Brigadier General Manuel M. Abu. SSgt. Jul found and turned over a black Nike bag and white Nike shoes to personnel manning the ‘Honesty Glass’ at the PNP Sports Center last February 13.

The owner of the lost-and-found items identified as one Justin Gabriel Lagiwid eventually saw his missing valuables on display at the entrance of the PNP gymnasium when he returned to play a game in the area.
