SOME 21 personnel of the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (Cocpo) were given financial reward for their performance that led to the arrest of suspects of the recent crimes in the city.
Mayor Rolando Uy gave each personnel a cash incentive of P10,000 at the City Hall on Tuesday, July 26.
Among those who received the monetary reward were Police Corporal Jayson Abesamis and Patrolman Jay Ain Bundulan who were both wounded during the hostage drama in Barangay 29 last week.
The suspect was neutralized and charged with two counts of frustrated murder, serious illegal detention and frustrated parricide.
Other recipients of the cash reward were those who have contributed in the arrest of the rape-slay suspect in Barangay Lapasan; murder suspect of a parking boy in Corrales Avenue; among others.
Cocpo deputy director for administration Police Lieutenant Colonel Surki Sereñas said the reward will boost the morale of the local police who are facing criticisms due to the recent crimes.
He said Cocpo is thankful not because of the monetary reward but to the support of the local government.
"Makapadasig ug maka-motivate kani sa atong PNP personnel on the ground to work harder because we need to reciprocate the support given to us by the mayor," Sereñas said.
