With pride and honor, PRO5 conducted a wreath laying ceremony to remember the bravery and to pay tribute to the sacrifices made by the SAF troopers on January 25, 2021 in front of the Heroes Shrine inside Camp Ola. Their deeds and contributions in our peacekeeping efforts had become and inspiration to the entire organization to continuously strive in making the PNP’s vision into reality.

During the activity, PMAJ FREDDIE C HERRY, Admin Officer, RLRDD and a member of the PNPA Class 2009 to which the SAF 44 belongs rendered a message recalling some of the courageous acts of his classmates that vividly pictures their commitment towards service.

RD, PRO5, also gave his message, “It has now been six years since that fateful day in the fields of Mamasapano where 44 SAF troopers died in the line of duty. Their deaths continue to inspire and fill all of us with a sense of pride to have counted as brothers in the same organization such brave and gallant men who truly lived up to the highest ideals and expectations of what a police officer should be by offering their very lives in the performance of their oath to serve and protect the people and the nation.”

“It is my hope that today’s commemoration would once again remind us not only of our duties as police officers but of our social and moral responsibility as part of one community; of aiming to do something for the betterment of our community and the welfare of our people no matter how small and insignificant they may be,” he added.
