Netizens who were able to identify Police Sr. Inspector De Dios, testified to the inspector’s natural kindness and dedication to his work.  They even said he was a religious cop who is also a good family man. He is indeed a role model for all the other policemen:

D. Balilo:Saludo ako sayo sir! Bihira na yung ganyang pulis! Sana dumami pa kagaya mo! (I salute you sir! Officers like you are hard to find! We hope there are some more like you!)”

E. Guirre:Hindi ako nagtataka. Si Rigo pa na kapitbahay ko, napakabuting tao mula’t sapul. All praise… (I’m not surprised. He’s my neighbor and a good man.)”
