Philippine National Police (PNP) recognized the Boracay Action Group (BAG) as Outstanding Non Government Organization (NGO) of the year 2013.

Boracay Action Group Adviser/Consultant Leonard Tirol said that, “the award is supposed to be given last August 8, 2014 in line with the celebration of 113 years of Police Service of the PNP,  but there was no representative from the said office to receive the honor.”

However, during the joint flag raising ceremony yesterday, Tirol proudly says that the Boracay Action Group is already well-known at the regional and national level.

Meanwhile, Malay Mayor John Yap admitted that he is somehow disappointed because there was no invitation from the award winning body to notify them in order to receive the award, yet regardless of these circumstances he said that he is still grateful.

On the other hand, Police Regional Office VI also awarded Boracay Action Group as a supportive NGO for the year 2013.
