On this day, let us commemorate our Independence Day with honour, unity and rest in peace in facing the challenge of a new tomorrow.

May we face the new chapter in our country’s history with courage, concern and love. Let’s join our government and the Filipino people in promoting real change in the whole country.

As law enforcement officers, we are given the opportunity to continue to preserve our freedoms. Policemen can be regarded as modern katipunero who are willing to risk their lives for the good of the many. This time let us also remember the police officers of Region 1 who risked their lives for the betterment of our region.
