CAMP OLIVAS, City of San Fernando, Pampanga-. After twenty three years, Police Regional Office 3 under the leadership of PCSUPT RAUL D PETRASANTA, RD, PR03 finally provided the official hymn of the regional office as it held its “Quest for PRO3 Hymn” on August 6, 2014 at the Benigno Aquino Hall, Capitol Compound, City of San Fernando, Pampanga.

            Eleven contenders from the different city/provincial police offices presented their original musical composition with score and vied for the prestige of being selected as the Official PRO3 Hymn.

            The activity was initiated by the Regional Police Community Relations Division headed by PSSUPT DANILO M FLORENTINO and PSUPT MAYLYN DOMINGO.

            The night was surrounded with music and beautiful voices of the police participants who showcased their talents to the Board of Judges composed of the PRO3 Command Group and selected directorial staff.

            In the message of PCSUPT PETRASANTA read by PSSUPT RONALD SANTOS, DRDA he said, “In 2012, we held the PRO3 Search for the Singing Police wherein our musically gifted men and women in uniform showed another face of the police force, that we are not only good in shooting the targets but we are also good in hitting the notes. Indeed, it is worthwhile to replicate said activity but now with an altered yet equally significant objective, which is to select an essential aspect in the history of Police Regional Office 3, our PRO3 official hymn.”

            “Taken at a face value, our would-be-hymn’s lyrics would extol our virtues as police officers as well as distinct us from other Police Regional Offices since it represents our PRO wholly. On this note, once again let me express my gratitude towards all of you who made this event such a success,” he further remarked.

            The entry of Nueva Ecija PPO was adjudged as the over-all champion and will become the official hymn of PRO3 while the runner-ups were RPSB3 and Tarlac PPO.
