These never before heard facts about PCI Espenido will make you love him more
PCI Jovie Espenido might be the biggest asset of the Philippine National Police today due to his great anti-narcotics accomplishments.

In fact, he was tagged as the 'most requested cop' as citizens from all over the country would want him to be transferred to their city or province.

But who exactly is PCI Jovie Espenido? A close friend of him in Leyte with the initials of RDA divulged these bits and pieces of information about him. "Sir Espenido hopes to keep these personal info under wraps because for him, it’s not something to brag about, but according to RDA, informing the public who really Sir Jovie is up close is the least he can do for a friend and a brother who, despite risking his life with genuine intentions in the name of justice, is bombarded with ridicule and false accusations by the skeptics," the blog WriteRight stated.

Check out below details to know more about Chief Jovie Espenido:

 He is...

Sir Jovie’s petrifying epithets as “drug buster”,  “crime buster”, “narco-politicians’ worst fears” are misnomers of his real life. In reality, he is just a simple person living a humble but principled life. How humble his lifestyle is? Let me tell you. The only accessory in his house in Leyte was a 14’ tube TV which, by the time of writing, had long been disposed for acting up.  Their dining table can accommodate only four causing one of the five members in the family to literally stand (at times) during meal time or jam five seats around. Their receiving room is barely 4 meters wide. His favorite ride is his outdated ‘dunot nga XRM’ and he has an L300 van that not even his friends would dare drive and ride ‘kay kagang-kagang na’. It wasn’t even his. Someone gave up a faulty L300 van, another person tried to overhaul it and entrusted it to Sir Jovie to be used around the town of Isabel. The Espenidos have a ‘sari-sari store’ with meager goods, and sometimes goes almost empty. As a strict vegetarian, ‘adobong kangkong’, ‘sinabawang gulay’ at ‘bigas na mais’ are heaven for him.  Sounds unbelievable? Go visit his house in Leyte incognito, and his family’s modest lifestyle will amaze you. 

He was...

 In Leyte and Samar, he is popularly known as the ‘supercop’. Despite his impressive track records since 1996, he remained PO1 for 12 years. That long, he garnered 83 commendation awards. There was even a time when he was all-dressed to receive another honor just to know that it was cancelled and given to another person instead. Why? The narco-politicians and notoriously influential figures themselves lodged protests against his promotion and awards yet, no trace of grievance from him. It was even his colleagues who complained in and on his behalf. His commendation honors include the arrest of the wanted Kumander Mojado (robbery gang leader), Doroteo Molobolo (private armed group leader) among others. His unrelenting faithfulness to duty earned him both friends and foes and it paved the way to purging the area under his jurisdiction from illegal gambling, ‘sabong’, drinking alcohol and unacceptable noise at night. Even then as a PO1, he caused two high-ranking officials to be expelled. Under his watch, 2 mayors were detained and 3 mayors perished (Calbayog, Albuera, Ozamis), to name a few. Walang sinasanto! Walang kinakatakutan! In Samar, he was dubbed as ‘Alyas Pogi’ by his cohorts (based on Bong Revilla’s movie) because he would go around at night disguised as a commoner trying to uphold the peace in town. His goal to neutralize the situation in his assignment is set for a period of 1 to 3 months. The efficacious eradication of four private armed groups in Samar of which he was the team leader, gave him the spot promotion. Whenever he receives a monetary award, he evenly distributes it to his team. Mabuting kaibigan, masamang kaaway ika nga. And to those who know him personally, his sense of humor exceeds that stern aura his face is portraying. Watch his interviews, only true Bisdaks can grasp his subtle punchlines.

His secret...

This man has no fear except for one, that is GOD. His daily routine demonstrates his faithfulness in God. His office is decorated but ONLY the inscription of the TEN COMMANDMENTS. He is not just a police officer but an active Bible evangelist. He leads the daily morning devotional in his office accompanied by other officers and he observes the Sabbath from sunset to sunset. Included in his observance of the Sabbath are attending church services and fasting the whole day. The only time he holds his cellphone on a Sabbath day is that part in the morning when he sends to many a Sabbath greeting and some Bible texts.  In fact, one of the sanctions he gives to petty and common law crimes instead of fines (e.g. driving without a helmet, no vehicle registration plates) is memorizing the ten commandments. He believes that through this simple act, people will learn to be more morally responsible and become better law-abiding citizens. He also believes that involvement in illegal drugs is one of the roots of the evils in the society. That is his pet peeve. Whenever he has a major police operation that poses great risks for his and his men’s lives, he goes fasting for several days, reads his Bible and sneaks to the church at night and asks for the divine guidance for a couple of hours in the dark. 

 Even before President Duterte assumed his office, then-Mayor Digong, ‘Bato’ and Sen. Lacson have already known him and the kind of policeman Sir Jovie Espenido is. To the hecklers of PCI Espenido, whatever insults and lies you hurl at him, you can’t put a faithful policeman down. To the likes of Nova Parojinog, you’re dead wrong about bribing this man. Here is "a man who can’t be bought or sold; a man who in his inmost soul is true and honest; a man who does not fear to call sin by its right name; a man whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole; a man WHO WILL STAND FOR THE RIGHT THOUGH THE HEAVENS FALL."

To Sir Jovie and your men, the only ammunition and protection we can offer you are our earnest prayers. Thank you for reviving the once-lost faith the Filipinos have for our policemen. From us Filipinos in and outside the country who greatly believe in you, our snappiest salute to all of you! Mabuhay po kayo! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
