“I am honored to be a member of the families of gallant warriors and beautiful ladies of Mountain Province. It is an enriching and inspiring experience for me’, Dela Rosa said.

He stressed that the Cordillerans as gallant warriors was proven by the members of the SAF 44, many them tracing their roots from this part of the country.

Dela Rosa also disclosed that he himself is entrusting his life to a Cordilleran in the person of PSInsp. Daniel Pumecha Jr, his security officer, who hails from Mountain Province.  

In his keynote message, Dela Rosa called for a continuing partnership with the province and its people in maintaining the drug – free status of Mountain Province as earlier declared by the Police Regional Office – Cordillera. (JDP/CCD-PIA CAR)
