LA TRINIDAD, Benguet,-- Top Cordillera police officials awarded medals of valor to five police officers wounded in an ambush by New People’s Army  members in Malibcong, Abra recently.
Regional police director Chief Supt. Elmer Francis Sarona pinned medals and gave cash to PO2 Jessie Trinidad, PO1 Marion Dela Paz, PO1 Gerome Baldos, PO1 Kennon Sanggoy, and PO1 Von Harold Layao, who are recovering at Abra Provincial Hospital.
              Sarona  also provided medical cash assistance to police who are members of Abra Provincial Public Safety Company.
This, aside from their P20, 000 partial claims from  PSMBFI.
               The full payment from PSMBFI will be given after they will be discharged from the hospital.
The policemen were wounded in action after one platoon of the PPSC led by Abra police director Senior Supt. Alexander Tagum with company commander Supt. Allen Bauding was ambushed at Malibcong Malanas Bridge in Barangay Poblacion, Malibcong March 13 while on their way to Malibcong to reinforce cops of the town police station attacked by New Peple’s Army rebels the night before.
               Sarona said policemen showed extraordinary courage in performance of duty.

Meanwhile, Sarona ordered all police regionwide to be on alert and initiate security preparations to prevent similar incidents in their respective areas of jurisdiction.
