WATCH: 'Beauty queen cop' to guard Duterte

President-elect Rodrigo Duterte's security detail will include the "beauty queen cop" former Miss Philippines-Earth candidate Sofia Loren Deliu.

Deliu and several other lady police officers met with Duterte last Sunday, May 22.

Half-Filipina and half-Romanian, Deliu first caught the national spotlight last year after finishing 15th place in the Miss Philippines-Earth beauty pageant.

The policewoman joined the Philippine National Police in 2014. She was the chief supply officer at the PNP Regional Public Safety Battalion.

"Kami po 'yung unit na... nagco-combat operations. Kami po 'yung supporting unit. And under din po sa amin 'yung SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), 'yung sa mga bombings. Anything that has to do with rescue, kami pong unit 'yun,"  explained Deliu.

(Our unit is involved in combat operations. We are the supporting unit. Under our unit are the SWAT, EOD. Anything that has to do with rescue, that's us.)

Deliu has been modeling since she was 14.

Photos of the beauty queen cop in uniform circulated online during her pageant stint.
