FOUR security officers were given due recognition by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) for their honesty and integrity.
The three security officers namely Dianalyn Ignacio, Jessie Amoroso and Dewnil Husada, and security guard Steward Lapatan were presented with awards and certificates of appreciation by CAAP Director General Captain Manuel Antonio Tamayo for their “outstanding dedication to their jobs and their honesty in line of service”.
Ignacio, a CAAP Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS) personnel assigned at the departure area of Roxas Airport, together with Cebu Pacific staff Victor Aragon and an Aviation Security Group police officer named “Ejercito,” returned a sling bag containing cash amounting to P200,000, along with medicines and important documents owned by a former Capiz Governor.
On the other hand, Husada and Amoros, both from CSIS in Roxas Airport, turned over a valuable baggage containing high-value jewelry and important documents left behind by a foreign passenger at Roxas Airport’s arrival area. The three CSIS personnel were able to identify the owners and immediately facilitated the return of the baggage.
Lapatan, a security guard on duty, was able to return a lost file organizer that contained a large sum of cash amounting to P32,000 and other important documents that were left by a pilot client last March 24 in the Flight Standards Inspectorate Service (FSIS) building in Pasay City Central Office.
“These actions remind us that the culture of honesty is alive and well within our agency. I hope that these examples will inspire the rest of the CAAP community to emulate their honesty and do the same in every way possible, especially as we are civil servants. They should make us all proud by exemplifying the absolute aspiration for integrity and honesty in public service,” Tamayo said.
Tamayo also gave awards to employees who rendered at least 40 years of dedicated service in CAAP.
The recognition of these employees is a testament to CAAP‘s commitment to recognize and celebrate its employees’ achievements and contributions to the authority, Tamayo said.
