Editor's Comment: So, you've got 46 kilos of cocaine in your car, so you're going to speed and pass a police car? Good plan...

There are more than few stories about corruption and bribes by PNP officers, but when these positive stories are out there I hope the officers receive the appropriate recognition...an award or plaque from command staff in front of their peers? How about a couple extra paid days off? what say a percentage of the offered bribe to the school the officers kid attends, if no kids how about a school in his/her patrol district, presented by the officer with his story of honesty to the children an an positive example.
Just as the negative officer need to be spanked, the good ones need to lauded.
