MMDA lady traffic enforcer receives Dangal ng Bayan award
A lady motorcycle-riding traffic enforcer of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) bagged the Dangal ng Bayan Award-Regional Winner Award in the Civil Service Commission’s 2019 Search for Outstanding Government Workers.
During the MMDA’s flag raising ceremonies held today, CSC-NCR Makati Field Office director Nel Sherwin Carnetes conferred the award to Capistrano, a member of the Traffic Discipline Office and employee of the agency for the past 10 years.
The Dangal ng Bayan Award is conferred to an individual for performance of extraordinary act or public service and consistent demonstration of exemplary ethical behavior.
The MMDA nominated Capistrano to the search in recognition of her exemplary performance in line of duty that brought honor and prestige to the agency due to her following achievements:
- Chosen as one of the Oustanding Women in Law Enforcement and National Security (OWLENS) in the Philippines last March 11, 2019;
- Received fourth place award in MMDA’s Search for Best Employee in November last year after being recorded as the traffic aide with the highest number of apprehensions;
- Received best apprehending officer award from the Motorcycle Unit in 2017 and 2018
MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim said Capistrano’s professionalism in the performance of her mandated responsibilities is manifested by her punctuality and diligence resulting to a consistent very satisfactory performance rating.
Moreover, the act of showing commitment to public interests is manifested by her dedication, sincerity and commitment to her job by apprehending erring motorists from all walks of life in spite of the risk inherent to the job.
“The authority to apprehend and issue violation ticket is considered as a risk and temptation at the same time, but she never attempted to take advantage of it. She has shown exemplary performance in her field of assignment and possess the quality of a good public servant,” said Lim.
The CSC’s Honor Awards program recognizes government officials and employees who have displayed outstanding work performance. The conferment of honor awards aims to motivate or inspire government employees to improve the quality of their performance and instill deeper involvement in public service. The search culminates with the recognition and conferment of awards to deserving public servants during the celebration of the anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service in September.
