Blessing of Police Badge in Catigbian, Bohol

Catigbianons led by Mayor Roberto Salinas and their local officials witnessed a meaningful ceremony upheld and cherished tradition of the police force Monday, May 18.

In a ceremony solemnized by the blessing of the police badge by Rev. Fr. Joselito Masula, residents were also made to understand that the police badge, pinned during the Badge of Honor Ceremony invests in the police the authority as law enforcers.

The ceremony reminds cops of their sworn duty to serve and protect and to instill in them the pride and honor of being one officer as vested by the people, a police officer explained.
The PNP Badge pinned on an officer’s left breast or nearest to his heart, symbolizes legal authority, and should remind cops to be faithful and dedicated to duty expected of them as public servants.

Being entrusted with the badge as worthy of a police officer serving and protecting the people from whom they derived their power and authority to enforce the laws without fear or favor, police officers also are tasked to oversee general welfare, ensure that peace and order mindful of their role as the protector of the weak, defender of the innocent, and advocate of human rights.

Himself a retired government peace keeper, Mayor Salinas said he salutes SPO4 Florencio Ibarra for keeping the tradition of police honor to seep to his men in the field.

As officers, they must wear their badge with honor, Salinas said.

Duty and honor now bind you to be faithful to the trust bestowed upon you by the people. Your badge reminds you to maintain the dignity of our character at all times and to strenuously enforce by example, a steady obedience to the laws of the land, Mayor Salinas said as he exhorted his police officers.


The police badge contains the PNP Seal held bravely by Lapulapu, the first Filipino to defend the country against foreign invaders despite being inferiorly equipped.
Inside the Seal are the virtues of service, honor and justice, which should remind cops to always render the highest form of public service for fellowmen.

As such, police officers are called to serve the citizenry with the commitment of sacrifice and willingness to die in service of God, country and people.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
