A police lieutenant who did not think twice about breastfeeding a crying baby she found in Barangay Old Capitol Site, Quezon City. A police corporal from Iloilo who distributed face shields and grocery items to people in her community, from the start of the pandemic up to the present. An off-duty sergeant from Negros Oriental who helped evacuate a PWD from his burning house.
These are just three of 17 awardees of the inaugural Pulis Magiting X Pinoy Magiting Awards, a joint program of Ayala Foundation and the Philippine National Police. Initially launched in six regions nationwide, Pulis Magiting X Pinoy Magiting kicked off with the announcement of the awardees and the signing of the agreement.
Launched at the PNP headquarters in Camp Crame, the awards recognize uniformed personnel who demonstrate the virtue of “kagitingan” – courage or valor – in the performance of their role, or even beyond the call of duty.
