The award was given to Suerte for his outstanding performance in the war in Marawi City which was occupied by Maute members, a terror group inspired by ISIS.

"A special award is presented to Police Supt. Lambert A. Suerte, Special Action Force, for his exemplary performance on law enforcement that led in the successful conduct of offensive clearing and counter-sniper operations in Marawi City that prevented further acts of terrorism," Suerte's citation read.

Bokod's proud son served in the Cordillera region before he was called by PNP-SAF Director Benjamin Lusad because of his extensive experience in police operations.

In 2014, Suerte was also recognized for his excellent service by former President Benigno Aquino. He was awarded the "Leadership Award", which is the highest award given by the province of Benguet to the outstanding sons and daughters, which made a difference in the lives of the people.


Proud Igorot.
