The ACT-CIS partylist also gave them packs of goods, said NEPPO Director Col. Marvin Joe Saro.

“Sa sakripisyo ng ating mga kapulisan at mga medical front-liners dito sa Jaen, binigyan natin sila ng certificate of appreciation at cash (With the sacrifices of our police personnel and medical front-liners here in Jaen, we gave them certificates of appreciation and cash),” Austria said in an interview.

The mayor acknowledged that front-liners from different offices and agencies have to face the threat of Covid-19 in order to maintain the safety of the people.

“Maraming salamat sa inyong tulong, sa inyong pagbabantay para sa katahimikan ng bayan ng Jaen (Thank you very much for your help and for your vigilance in maintaining peace in the town of Jaen),” Austria said.

Saro said they are happy that all personnel at the Jaen Police Station who contracted Covid-19 were able to recover, adding that this is a “testament that we can fight Covid.”

“Gusto naming magbigay-pugay at i-encourage at magbigay ng inspirasyon sa ating mga kapulisan na kailangan nating mag-trabaho despite na may danger na magka-virus (We want to pay tribute and encourage and inspire our police officers that we need to work despite the risk of acquiring the virus),” he added.
