Team CIDG Honors Retiring Personnel
Officers and personnel of the CIDG gathered on June 26, 2015 to recognize the service and retirement of two of its long-time members, NUP Christine De Vera Comia and NUP Victoria Filipino Abania.
Together with the CIDG Command Group, PDIR Benjamin B. Magalong presented them with plaques in grateful recognition of their years of devotion and loyalty to the agency.
Both served as Non-Uniformed Personnel: Tin has been with us for 38 years, while Vicky has been with the CIDG for 37 years. Their last working day will be on July 1, 2015.
To Tin and Vicky, we are so proud and honored to have worked with you. We wish you all the best and thank you for your years of dedication to government service. You will be greatly missed.
PDIR Magalong Wins Glock Shooting Challenge
The PNP recently awarded CIDG Chief, PDIR Benjamin B. Magalong as one of the champions in the PNP Glock Shooting Challenge held on May 28 to 29, 2015 in Camp Gen. Mariano Castañeda, Silang, Cavite. PDIR Magalong won the champion title in the Star-Rank Officers category, where he competed with fellow generals in the PNP.
The two-day shooting challenge advanced the shooting skills of PNP personnel and also served as a filed test for ensuring the reliability, profiency, and durability of Glock firearms issued to PNP officers.
117th Commemoration of Philippine Independence Day
As the whole country commemorates a very important event in the lives of the Filipino people some 117 years ago, the CIDG joins the PNP in the celebration of said event on June 12, 2015 in front of the PNP NHQ Building with the theme, “Kalayaan 2015: Tagumpay sa Pagbabagong Nasimulan, Abot-Kamay na ng Bayan”. All Crame-based CIDG personnel came early for the traditional Flag Raising ceremony which was followed by a short program that reminds everyone of how the country achieved its independence and how it defines our identity as a free nation.
Building Camaraderie Through Sports
The CIDG participates with enthusiasm as the PNP formally opens the 2015 NHQ/NSU’s Sportsfest last June 8, 2015, which coincides with the Monday Flag Raising ceremony. Aside from encouraging PNP personnel to be fit and healthy through involvement in physical activity, this traditional annual activity is aimed at promoting camaraderie and sportsmanship among the different units of the organization. One of the highlights of the occasion was the symbolic lighting of the Olympic flame. There was a display of selected muses by the participating offices during the parade, wherein the 19-year old Ms. Janicel Lubina, a 52nd Bb. Pilipinas candidate from Palawan, was chosen as muse of Team CIDG.
As the elimination round in the different sports events is going on, the Team CIDG is optimistic that it’s going to bring home the bacon!
