Balikbayan OFW’s viral post about Davao Central 911, Martial law best summarizes Duterte’s first year presidency

While the antis and pro-Dutertes have been trying to outdo each other in reviewing Duterte’s performance during his first year in office, this post of an OFW sharing his experience in Davao City is worth reading.

Netizen DEXTER QUIZADA narrated a nerve-wracking experience after he left important documents including his passport while riding a jeep in Davao City.

Worse, he was scheduled to fly back to Qatar on that night and failing to return on time could jeopardize his job.

After switching between three taxis to look for the jeepney, he decided to try calling Davao City’s 911.

In a typical Metro City, kung tanga ka at nawalan ka ng valuables, chances are you will never recover it. But it is a different case in Metro Davao. I left my passport and all my documents sa front Seat ng Ecoland-SM route na Jeep. It was about 20 minutes after ako bumaba ng narealize ko na naiwan siya. To add more spice sa situation, tonight is my flight back to Qatar. My documents alone is more than enough para mag hyperventilate ko, ano pa kaya ang passport. I took a cab to trail the jeep’s route. 3 taxis and no luck. Then, I called 911. In less than 1 minute a lady answered the phone and took all the specific info. She then coordinated with the nearest Military personnel na nasa next traffic signal. Then, all posts in the jeep’s route were then alerted para maabangan ang lahat ng jeep na may same route. I’ve waited and ate isaw and balut kasi gutom na ako.

Worried? Nope. Panic? Yeah. But then again, I wanted to stay positive. After all, it’s Davao City and it’s presently under Martial Law. After less than an hour, I got all my documents back. The officer below, ang nag-make sure na lahat ng specific jeep is napapahinto nya to check and ran after them too. As a sign of gratitude, I offered this good officer for a snack but he politely decline. This gesture really impressed me from the core. The officer lived up to the PNP’s “To serve and protect.” I hope we could have more officers like him around the country. Sir, kung hindi dahil sayo, naStuck siguro ako sa Davao now and would have surely lost my job. #GreatJob

Time and again, I’ve been hearing good feedback as to how the Central 911 works and I never thought that one day, I could add up to the good stories that most, if not all Dabawenyos experienced. Davao’s Policemen are indeed the Philippines’ finest and the Task Force Davao is just about as reliable and approachable. All of these summed up to an unparralleled confidence that the people of Davao have to the brand of security and protecition from our noble police and military men. I hope and pray that the entire country can also have this one of a kind public service. Oh! By the way, it’s free.


Although being tanga is not advisable, but if you are in Davao city, you are in good hands.
