De Peralta, M.D. was guest speaker during the kick-off on July 6 of the 25th Police Community Relations Month Celebration of the Philippine National Police in the province. The theme for this year is: ?????????? ?? ??????? ?? ????????? ?? ???????, ????? ?? ????? 19 ????????".

Vice Governor De Peralta reiterated the PNP Vision, which is to "Serve and to Protect the People", yet this time not against crimes only but on maintaining discipline and order among all the residents of the seven municipalities to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

"Needless to say, the LGUs have executed and legislated what needs to be done but a great deal of help also comes from its full implementation with the help of the Sarangani PNP," he said.

"Because of your commitment to safety and security, we have significantly lesser cases of Covid as compared to other provinces. Kung hindi dahil sa inyo, baka siguro mas marami pa ang kaso dito sa probinsya ng Sarangani,” Vice Governor De Peralta continued.

"Truly, the PNP has advocated the public health safety decorum like the wearing of face masks, strict implementation of social distancing and practice of proper hygiene all throughout the province."

The vice governor also said "all frontliners are commended for performing their jobs judiciously in this fight against an unseen enemy. The PNP personnel are definitely taking one of the most demanding responsibilities, because you all have consistently worked hard if not to prevent but at least mitigate Covid-19 cases here in Sarangani. Sa inyo, marami pong salamat. (Rhey Gatcho/DOKVICE MEDIA TEAM)
