Las Piñas City Mayor Vergel Aguilar lauded police chief Romulo Sapitula for winning the LEAD PNP Mentor Award for his innovative approach to maintain peace and order in the city through his leadership.
Sapitula won the award for two consecutive years in recognition for his outstanding leadership, besting 36 other police officers in the National Capital Region.
The award was given during the 105th PNP anniversary following the flag raising ceremony at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City, with Chief Superintendent Miguel Laurel, deputy regional director for administration, handing over the award.
The NCRPO based the award on the criteria as: mentoring, community mobilization, initiative and leadership in determining the winners.
The board of jurors are composed of representatives from the media, academe, non-government organizations, business and the religious sector.
In citing the chief of police, Aguilar said the award exemplifies Sapitula’s keen leadership that motivates his colleagues and subordinates to perform their duties for the benefit of the people.
“Winning the award will reinforce the city’s vision and mission as one of the most peaceful cities in the country,” the mayor said.
A peaceful and orderly city means businessmen and investors friendly that will redound to the development of the city and benefit the people. (END) – Las Pinas PIO
