THREE projects of the Police Regional Office 4-B were inaugurated recently with members of the Philippine National Police Officers’ Ladies Club chaired by Mrs. Cherrylyn Albayalde, wife of PNP chief Director General Oscar D. Albayalde, at the the PRO4-B regional headquarters in Camp Efigenio Navarro in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro.
The PRO4-B projects are the Young Eco-Warriors’ Child Development Center, the Balay Lakoy and the Adoration Room, said PRO4-B director, Brigadier General Tomas C. Apolinario Jr.
The PRO4-B Young Eco-Warriors’ Child Development Center is a child learning center that will cater to children of Mimaropa police personnel and other government employees as well as other kids with ages from 3 to 4-years old living near the regional headquarters.
On the other hand, Balay Lakoy is a PRO4-B regional headquarters’ lounge which will be used for small staff meetings and other special events hosted by the region. It will also showcase the products and depict the customs and tradition of natives of Mindoro Oriental, Mindoro Occidental, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan.
The third project is the Adoration Room at the St. Michael The Archangel Chapel of the PRO4-B which was built for the spiritual enhancement of the Mimaropa police officers and men.
Mrs. Albayalde, the chairperson of the PNP-OLC headed by Mrs. Lally Eleazar, wife of National Capital Region Police Office director, Major General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar is behind the idea to construct Adoration Chapels in all 17 police regional offices as part of the PNP’s spiritual program.
The Adoration chapels have been constructed at the PNP national headquarters’ St. Joseph Chapel, the NCRPO headquarters, the Quezon City Police District headquarters, the Southern Police District headquarters and the Police Regional Office 12 headquarters.
Journal Group sources said the PNP chief’s wife wants no PNP funds involved in the construction of these Adoration chapels and have protested the move of some officials to ask funds from the PNP-NHQ in order to build their own Adoration Chapel.
Several PNP Adoration chapels already constructed this year were said to have been built thru donations from police officers and personnel themselves and with the generosity of some Good Samaritans.
