“I appeal to the public to continue supporting the police by informing us of any information of wrongdoings here so that appropriate action can be taken as quickly as possible.

“Please continue to be our ‘eyes and ears’. Together, let us maintain the peace and security of Kapit” he said in a ceremony to mark the 211th Police Day here yesterday.

He also called on his men to always keep abreast with the fast-changing physical landscape as well as technological advancement to ensure more effective policing. The ceremony also saw Freddy present commendation letters to officers, rank-and-file personnel, and civilian staffers.
