Fornis, the cop who arrested Angela's parents is a family man of three doesn't hesitate to accept the student's request to stand as her guardian so she could enroll for the opening of classes.

"Pag involved ang bata, nadudurog 'yung kalooban ko pag nasasaktan, naapi 'yung mga bata. Nung nagtapat sa akin 'yung bata, hindi ako nag-alinlangan na tulungan siya," Fornis said.

The 14-year-old Angela Perez had been rejected by the school because she couldn't submit school requirements that needs a parents signature.

Then the good cop accompanied Angela to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) to get her birth certificate as a school requirement.

NCRPO Chief praised Fornis for the kindness he gave for Angela.

"I read the article about it in the newspaper and I was touched by the effort done by PCpl Fornis and for that being the father of the NCRPO, I said these acts should be recognized,” the Metro Manila top cop said.

“The public may not see these simple good deeds of the police officers because sometimes, these are not newsworthy. But if we look into it closely, police officers have families too and we can always relate to ourselves to it because one of the core values of the PNP is being pro-people," Eleazar stressed.

Eleazar visited Angela in School and give her some school supplies. He also offered Perez the services of the NCRPO Regional Health Service for free after learning that she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
