Police Officers are people who dedicate their lives to keep us safe. This is the reason why we can’t help but admire police officers that are dedicated to their jobs.
More so when these officers go to such lengths just to protect the people.
One beat patroller named PO1 Arnisah Acmad is now being hailed a hero as the news came about on how she went after the holdupper of the jeepney that they were riding.
According to the report, she was on her way home when somebody declared a “holdap” along Nichols Interchange in Taguig City.
“May napansin lang ako na isang lalaki na parang aligaga. Hindi siya mapakali. After ng few minutes, nagdeklara siya ng holdap. Tapos biglang tinangay ‘yung cellphone ko. After no’n, sinundan ko,”
She then tried to arrest the suspect but he ran fast to which she obliged and ran after him.
“Instead na ibigay ‘yung cellphone ko, lumingon siya. Tapos binaril ako, di ako natamaan. That’s the time na kinuha ko ‘yung ano, pinutukan ko na siya ng isa just to incapacitate,”
Because of the injury, the suspect couldn’t run anymore and Acmad was able to arrest him when he stopped by the sidewalk.
“Tumawag ako ng barangay tanod para dalhin siya sa ospital,”
The incident made the Philippine National Police praise Acmad for what she did.
“It’s courageous. Inisip niya hindi lang ‘yung safety niya kundi ‘yung safety ng ibang passengers ng jeep,”
This was said by Chief Supt. Tomas Apolinario Jr., district director of Southern Police District who also endorsed Acmad for a special promotion.
