PROCOR lady officer returns almost P40,000 to owner
Camp Major Bado Dangwa, La Trinidad, Benguet –PROCOR takes pride on a lady cop officer who returned a lost sling bag containing close to P40k to its senior citizen owner.
Sling bag owner, George I. Walsiyen, 78 years-old is a resident of Betag La Trinidad, Benguet, he was about to pay their BIR Tax on November 27, 2018 at Landbank La Trinidad when he noticed that his sling bag was missing. His bag contained Php39, 984.75, eyeglasses, two ballpens and a cellular phone.
PROCOR’s Police Chief Inspector Thrislyn C. Sagpaey was about to enter Health 101 Restaurant at Km 6, La Trinidad, Benguet, on same date, when she found the sling bag in front of the establishment. She tried to locate the possible owner but nobody around seemed to be the owner, fortunately she found a cellular phone inside the bag and was able to contact the owner’s son. She informed him that his dad’s bag was in her possession and told him to claim it from her.
The following day, Walsiyen went to claim his bag to the office of the Regional Operations Plans Division (ROPD), PROCOR. The owner was very grateful to the lady cop and offered her Php2,000.00 as a reward, but PCI Sagpaey refused to accept because the feeling of happiness from the statement of the owner saying “Thank You, I hope you will be successful in life” was more valuable.
At present, policemen are being portrayed in the movies in a negative light tainting the good image of the PNP organization. Such depictions may be hurtful to honest members of the uniformed force. The act of PCI Sagpa-ey is indeed one of the many of the PNP personnel’s good deeds that need to be shared and emulated by all, a PNP statement said.
PCSUPT Rolando Nana, PROCOR regional director, said that he hopes the good deed will inspire other personnel to do same.**
