On Saturday, October 25th, FALEO-SD held its 2nd annual 5K/10K Fun Run. The purpose of the event was to raise funds for Karangalan Magkaisa (KM), a high school scholarship organization. KM had its funding cut recently. FALEO-SD stepped in to help KM.
Numerous runners/walkers registered for the event. Prizes were awarded to the top male and female finishers in both the 5K and 10K. Every participant received a finisher’s medal. Afterwards, Filipino foods such as adobo, pancit, and lumpia were served. The talented, Katriz Trinidad (back from her appearance on The Voice), entertained the crowd. Music was provided by Andre Garcia.
The San Diego Police Department had a recruiting booth. The National City Police Department SWAT vehicle was on display along with some of their arsenal.
The event was sponsored by FALEO-LA, PANPAC, and the Pangasinan Association. Reynila Magbuhat-Calderon and approximately 10 high school students volunteered during the event.
Thank you to all the sponsors, participants and volunteers for coming together to make this a successful event!
Dear FALEO Members,
Greetings! The San Diego Chapter of the Filipino-American Law Enforcement Officers Association, in partnership with the Pan-Pacific Law Enforcement Association, would like to invite you to attend the 27th Annual NAPOA (National Asian Peace Officers’ Association) Training Symposium and Exposition.
It will be held on August 18-21, 2014 at the Grand Hyatt Manchester in beautiful San Diego. The training symposium will offer topics concerning homeland security, domestic and transnational terrorism, organized crime, management skills, wellness, first line supervision, Chief’s Panel, officer safety and other topics of general interest.
This is the first time that FALEO is involved as a co-host of this event. Law enforcement officials and associates from all across the US will be there. I would like to encourage all FALEO chapter members also try to attend this conference. It will also give members from different chapters to a chance to meet each other. Let us highlight our organization, promote our culture and build new friendships. If you have never attended a NAPOA conference, this is the one you won’t want to miss. See link below for conference application.
There is also a 2014 Joint Scholarship available to high school dependents of FALEO – SD members. Please see the link below for more information.
I look forward to meeting all of you.

Thank you for your support.
Jericho Salvador, President

On Saturday, June 14, 2014 the Battle of the Badges XI was held at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel. Boxers from local fire/police departments, Border Patrol, Department of Corrections, Probation, Navy and Marines came together to represent their departments and test their mettle against each other in the ring.
FALEO member Mandel “Code 8” Estepa (5’8, 165 pounds) was pitted against Darryl “The Doctor” Roberts (5’11, 169 pounds) from CV Fire. As the bell rang, each boxer took only a moment to size each other up before the fight was at full speed. Both traded punches amid the cheers from TEAM ESTEPA. There was non-stop action from beginning to end. Estepa won rounds 1 and 3 to take the match by decision.
The event helped raise money to support local boxing programs for the youth.
