Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Rodolfo Azurin Jr. on Tuesday lauded the 13 members of PNP Athletics Team for bagging a total of 19 medals in the recently concluded 2022 Philippine Masters International Athletics Championships last Nov. 11 to 12 at Philsports Complex, Pasig City.

“Congratulations to our PNP Athletics Team for another winning moment and for always making the entire police force proud.
