The Philippine National Police (PNP) gave him a hero’s burial.

MANILA, Philippines — A hero, a father, a friend. This was how SPO1 Junior Hilario was described by his relatives and friends.

Hilario was the Caloocan cop who died during an anti-illegal drugs operation last September 8.

From his home in Bagumbong Caloocan, his relatives, friends, and colleagues joined in bringing his remains at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) gave him a hero’s burial.

Hilario’s wife thanked those who helped them after the death of her husband.

“He went to work, and house only. That’s what he did. When he goes home, he does the laundry and cooks for me,” said Hilda Hilario, widow of the slain cop.

“Because I am not allowed to be exhausted as I already suffered stroked,” she said.

The chief of the Caloocan City police hopes that although their rank is facing various controversies due to the deaths of minors, the public will not judge them.

“We are appealing to the public to understand the job of the policemen. Like what happened to him, he died while performing his duties,” said Caloocan chief PSSupt. Jemar Modequillo.

The NCRPO has previously ordered the relief of Caloocan policemen and they are expected to be replaced by cops from Davao city.

Meanwhile, PNP chief Ronald dela Rosa has given recognition to the cop who was stabbed after drug suspect resisted arrest.

PO1 Ronald Anicete was awarded with a “Medalya ng Sugatang Magiting” after his life was put at risk while performing his duty.

The PNP chief also plans to promote him to the rank of PO2.

Aside from the recognition, Anicete also received a 9mm gun, and cash gift. — Rajel Adora | UNTV News & Rescue
