Acting Pangasinan Provincial Police Director Marlou Chan, representing the entire provincial police, received awards given by the Philippine National Police (PNP) during the observance of the 112th Police Service Anniversary Celebration.

How does it feel to receive awards for a police official officially disliked by local elected officials of Pangasinan?

How does it feel for the local government officials to hear that the police official they dislike was given awards?

Effective December 26, 2012 Police Senior Superintendent Marlou Chan was appointed OIC Provincial Police Director of Pangasinan.

A manifesto seeking the ouster of Chan was signed by local chief executives.

The province of Pangasinan represented by re-elected Gov. Amado Espino Jr. has filed a motion for a temporary restraining order (TRO) at the Regional Trial Court (RTC) against the appointment of Chan as Provincial Director of the Police Provincial Office (PPO).

Under civil case number 19720, Espino asked that the TRO and preliminary injunction be eventually made permanent, saying Chan’s appointment should be declared unlawful and that he should be ousted from the position.

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan through a resolution declared Chan persona non grata.

The resolution stated that Chan never bothered to formally present himself and his plans pertaining to the peace and order and security of Pangasinan, to the provincial officials, particularly, the members of the 7th Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

Another suggested step is to hold a rally against Chan.

Chan silently faced all these acts against his appointment.

The officer and the gentle policeman Chan just followed orders from the police chain of command to keep the elections peaceful and orderly.

“From the PO1 up to this representation, we have high-morale knowing na nagawa natin ang dapat at natugunan natin ang requirements ng mga mamamayan ng Pangasinan at nailunsad natin ang isang secured and fair elections 2013,” Chan said. “We maintain our utmost impartiality and we enforce the law to whoever, regardless of political party or affiliation,” Chan said.

The provincial police organization was very effective in its campaign against organized crimes and for the arrest of wanted persons.

Senior Superintendent Marlou Chan of San Quintin, Pangaisnan ,the acting police director, a persona non grata in Pangasinan, and the entire provincial police organization deserves the awards.
