Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa is known for being tough and aggressive crime fighter. However, a photo showing the PNP chief taking a nap while holding the hand of his beloved wife at a public place has swept the Filipino people off their feet.

Many social media users who saw the viral photo expressed their delight in seeing the usually tough Dela Rosa show his sweet and romantic side.

Many users also commented that the picture shows a priceless moment between a husband and wife, with Dela Rosa probably spending less time with his family due to his new responsibilities as the leader of the nation’s police force.

The difficulties of the duties assigned to him by President Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte seem to be also evident in this picture, as the tired PNP chief was able to fall asleep despite the public location and his uncomfortable position sitting on a plastic chair while wearing a seemingly uncomfortable police uniform.

Dela Rosa has been a great partner to fellow crime buster Duterte, with thousands of drug pushers and users voluntarily surrendering to the police. There has also been a dramatic increase in the number of drug suspects being killed or arrested by the police force since Bato became the PNP chief.

However, there has also been a shocking rise in the number of vigilante killings during his time as the new PNP chief. Dela Rosa said that policemen are only allowed to kill criminals during legitimate police operations.

He promised to punish any policeman who will kill drug criminals outside of legitimate operations. Bato also suspected drug lords, and not the police, of being the masterminds behind the spate of vigilante killings.
