Present during the simple awarding ceremony were Police Regional Office-7 Chief Supt. Jose Mario Espino, Regional Intelligence Division-7 chief Senior Supt. Jonathan Cabal, Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Dino, Cebu First District Representative Gerald Anthony “Samsam” Gullas, and Talisay City Mayor Eduardo Gullas. /JMD
