Three Cordillerans ranked among the top 5 graduates of Philippine National Police Academy(PNPA) Maragtas Class of 2018.

On Monday, PNP Chief Ronald "Bato" dela Rosa presented to the media the top 10 graduates as he urged them to join the elite Special Action Forces (SAF) to help with the government's effort against terrorism.

"Isasabak natin ito sa Special Action Force lahat. Giyera muna kayo, giyera. Wag muna kayo pahayahay", the adopted son of Mountain Province said.

The top 10 cadets are led by a domestic helper's son and Police Cadet Fritz John Napalinga Vallador from Negros Occidental, as the class valedictorian.
