According to Quezon City Police District director Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar who also arrived at the crime scene he was impressed by the quick thinking of our Hero police. That is why he will surely be in line for promotion.

“This shows how alert our police are and should be. Even if he was off-duty and going home, he was ready to face danger,” Eleazar said.

Lantano, a policeman for 20 years, has worked under the Police Security and Protection Group (PSPG) based in Crame since 2009.


Before that, he trained and was assigned with the PNP Special Action Force.
