The chief of police of Tagbilaran Police Station was given recognition during the opening of 2021 National Women’s Month celebration.
Police Lt. Colonel Mary Crystal Peralta with other 10 policewomen and a female civilian personnel of Police Regional Office (PRO) -7 were given recognition for their outstanding performance.
Peralta said she runs her police station like a home.
“Ipagpalagay natin na ang isang police station ay isa ring tahanan, kailangan dito ay may isang ilaw, so ang isang istasyon kung tayo ay isang babaeng chief of police kailangan ilagay natin hindi lang yung isip, hindi lang yung ilaw, kung hindi ilagay din natin yung puso natin sa ating mga tao,” said Peralta.
“Bilang ina ng Tagbilaran Police Station, pinapakita ko sa kanila, pinapadama ko sa kanila na ang chief of police nila ay isang ina rin dahil ang ating mga ina ay ating kakampi,” she added.
Peralta led the successful buy-bust operation in Tagbilaran City that resulted in the arrest of two high-value individuals.
The other awardees were Police Lt. Colonel Mary Crystal Peralta; Police Major Marylou A. Cuizon; Police Chief Master Sergeant Floressa Pineda; Police Master Sergeant Queen Brigitte Nuñez; Police Corporal Mannelyn Galarion; and Police Corporal Judilun Ommalin, all assigned at PRO-7 headquarters in Camp Sergio Osmeña Sr. in Cebu City.

PRO-7 also awarded Leslie Lim, president of PNP-PRO7 Officers Ladies’ Club, and NUP Ava Marie Zorrilla, regional accountant, for their significant contribution in the renovation of the PRO-7 Child Development Center.
