A Pavia, Iloilo resident, working mother who is an exemplar in doing her job as a police officer, has recently been declared as the COPS awardee in Region VI, Western Visayas, PH, the news said .
A woman? How did she qualify it?
How about those men police officers? What are they doing? Just asking. Malice towards none.

Anyway the Metrobank Foundation in their search for the County's Outstanding Policemen in Service (COPS) named SPO3 Rhia B. Sotomil of the Municipal Police Station of Pavia, Iloilo, PH as the Most Outstanding Police Officer in Western Visayas.
SPO3 Sotomil is in charge of the Women and Children’s Protection Office of the Pavia Municipal Police Station.
Sotomil's Deserving Deeds
The following are other potential factors have given credence to the deserving recognition received by Sotomil:
- Outstanding accomplishments in crime prevention and case resolution
- Actively promotioning good police-community relationship
- Raising public awareness on the rights of women and children
- Putting up charitable projects for the indigent families
- Dedicated working mother
- Giving an extra mile for helping other families
- Grateful police officer who recognizes the support of Pavia Mayor Arcadio Gorriceta not only to her office, but to the police station of Pavia as a whole.
Sotomil will represent Western Visayas in the annual national search.
Let's hope that Sotomil could make it in the final screening on July 9 and 10 at the Metrobank Foundation office in Makati City.

By the way, sometime in January 2012, Sotomil was promoted to SPO3 and received the rank insignia which pinned by S/Supt Gil B. Lebin Jr., Iloilo provincial police (IPP) director in the flag-raising ceremony at the IPPO grounds in Sta. Barbara, Iloilo.
Senior Supt. Lebin, Jr. also honored other 225 police personnel.
“Your promotion is an accomplishment you owed to the public and to the service. Think not of the compensation you will earn but the responsibility that this promotion carries with you,” Lebin told the newly-promoted officers.
Things to Ponder
What's the difference? A woman and a man police officer? Does a woman is superior than man? Or other way around?
