Port Police Superintendent Bernardo A. Gartalia conferred the award during the PMO’s Flag Ceremony on 20 January 2020.

SG Jalandoni detected and apprehended two (2) men whom he caught red-handed tossing a white sack with a bulging content outside the Port’s barricade, in the afternoon of 15 January 2020. After a thorough investigation by the Port Police Division, it was found out that the suspects stole one (1) unit of Robin EY20-3D engine of concrete vibrator that belongs to the Port’s cargo handling operator, Oroport Cargo Handling Services Inc. The suspects, who were both hired utility workers of Oroport, were charged with Qualified Theft.

PMO MOC lauds SG Jalandoni for his integrity and prompt action in the discharge of their duty—qualities that are worth emulating by his fellow force multipliers. — by IMR Lam
