BANGUED, Abra – Philippine National Police chief PGen Guillermo Eleazar joined Gov. Ma. Jocelyn Bernos and Rep. Joseph Sto. Nino Bernos in the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of a multi-purpose building inside the Police Provincial Office here in Camp Villamor Tuesday.

The top cop and the top two local officials jumpstarted the construction of the building by burying the time capsule as the provincial government continues to support the provincial police in its peace and order efforts.

The said building will be fully financed by the provincial government.

In his speech, Eleazar said in Filipino: “I am happy to see the presence and support of the leaders here in Abra who help our police to maintain the peace and development of Abra.”

The Abra officials then joined Eleazar in the blessing of the Special Armed Forces also within the camp in barangay Calaba here.

Eleazar, who was in Baguio and Benguet in Monday before flying aboard the PNP helicopter, then honored deserving PNP personnel by conferring them with medals “for their outstanding accomplishments in line with anti-criminality efforts of the PNP…,”

Eleazar also conferred plaques of recognition to stakeholders who help the Abra PPO.

Gov. Bernos, meanwhile, formally welcomed the general as an adopted son of the province who was given the Tingguian name “Magyukan”.

The governor then handed the general the signed Resolution 125 declaring him as such.

In giving him the name Madyukan, the town compared him to the “notable warrior in the Tingguian folklore known for his indomitable strength, courage, astuteness as protector of his people and village.”

He was also given a Kattukong or Tabungaw hat handcrafted by the national living artist of Abra Teofilo Garcia. Eleazar also received a rice mosaic portrait done by Dolores town employees and a Tingguian vest from Namarabar, Penarrubia.

“We are very happy for your visit,” Gov. Bernos told the police general.
