Inc. for the job well done and for their support and cooperation in training the group to help Bacolod City in the maintenance of peace and order which resulted to the many accomplishments of CIS/ACT-CIS in apprehending criminals and law violators in Negros Occidental.
“Without the training of FMA Kali, maybe two or three of our members are now in the hospitals or in the cemetery. Proof that they have actual encounter in fighting criminals in the line of their duties and functions,” John Lester S. Buenaventura, Chairman CIS/ACT-CIS of Negros Occidental, said. “I am very happy we have undergone FMA Kali Trainings,” Buenaventura pointed out.*(Jun de los Reyes)
