PBGEN TOMAS COLET APOLINARIO, JR., Regional Director officiated the Oath-taking of the New PNP Recruits for the CY 2019 Regular Recruitment Program coinciding with Traditional Monday Flag Raising Ceremony held at Camp Gen. Efigenio C Navarro Grandstand, Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro on August 19, 2019.

The ceremony were witnessed by members of the Command Group, Directorial Staff, men and women of Police Regional Office MIMAROPA, loved ones and relatives of the recruits.

In his message, PBGEN APOLINARIO stressed to the new recruits that this is only the beginning of their journey, a mere welcome, and preparations to a gigantic and overwhelming task ahead, entering into a regimented life, duties and responsibilities, authority, respect, and most of all temptation.

He challenged the newly police officers to live by example to others and to internalize and apply the true meaning of the word service.

“May mga pagkakataon na ang inyong buhay ay malalagay sa panganib, kasama ito sa ating sinumpaang tungkulin, ang ihandog an gating nag- iisang buhay”, PBGEN APOLINARIO ended.
