Olaivar said Regional Director PBGEN Michael John Dubria conferred the award to the SPPO during the PRO XII’s celebration of the 120th Police Service Anniversary.
Olaivar credited the award to SPPO’s accomplishments in “administrative and operational” as well as law enforcement and requirements during the Covid-19 pandemic. “Tayo ‘yung maganda yung accomplishment,” he said.
Olaivar also recognized SPPO’s contribution to the province’s fight against Covid-19 as their best practice. “Tayo ‘yung nagsisipag sa mandate ng provincial government natin. With regards to the health protocols, tayo ang mataas ang compliance at tayo ang less ang number ng nahawaan.”
Solon, on the other hand, warmly welcomed the new provincial director and commended Olaivar for having “a good track record and being a hard worker. We are happy that he is on board.”
With the feat the provincial police office has received, Solon also thanked the previous provincial directors. “We have Col. Lebanan who was promoted and Col. Gurat. Sila mismo together with Col. Olaivar, instrument sila sa mga awards na ito.”
The governor and Olaivar also agreed to “sustain ‘yung operation yaw yaw ug sita kay mao na ang very important karon nga ma remind ang katawhan kanunay nga we have to keep protecting ourselves samtang wala pa nabakunahan tanan.” (Jori Mae Samillano/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
