THE National Police Commission (Napolcom) awarded on Monday a plaque of recognition to the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) for the rescue of businesswoman Sally Chua from the hands of her kidnappers inside Allied Bank Claveria branch last July 11.

Napolcom Regional Director Angelito Ravanera gave the award to DCPO Director Ronald dela Rosa and his men during a simple ceremony at the DCPO headquarters in Camp Captain Domingo E. Leonor.

Dela Rosa, in a phone interview with Sun.Star Davao, said: "Malipayon mi na giawardan mi ani. Nalipay ko kay na-recognize nila ang successful nga operation (We are happy that they have awarded us with this. I am happy that they were able to recognize our successful operation)."

But DCPO is still under fire as the Regional Internal Affairs Service (RIAS) has summoned the operatives of DCPO who joined the operation to their office Monday for investigation.

"We are willing to answer any inquiries and if proven guilty, we are ready to face the charges. We will be undergoing normal procedure in the investigation on the allegations against us," dela Rosa said.

He added the only thing they could give to RIAS is their full cooperation in the investigation.

On another note, the city police director has yet to receive orders from the Philippine National Police headquarters concerning his supposed transfer to the Police Training Service in Camp Crame.
