Camp Tolentino in Bataan was named after PFC Cirilo Tolentino. He died while rescuing people trapped by strong floods in Nagwaling, Pilar in 1956. His son Major Guillermo Tolentino, one of the heroic police officers was killed in a fight with rebels few years ago.

At this time, Provincial Director Col. Zapata considered the camp as a hub of child-friendly government in the province of Bataan. Kids residing near the camp usually play along its roadside. You may see them sword fighting using sticks. Now, they should not be frightened to enter the police camp. They may enjoy playing inside the camp because of the newly built playground with installed slides, see-saws and swings. The playground is an initiative of Provincial Director Police Senior Superintendent Ricardo Zapata Jr. He thought of the playground when he once observed the children playing with dirt and rocks near the camp. With this, the children will be playing safely now. Zapata explained that he wanted to establish an atmosphere conducive for workplace and an environment where the family of police retirees and active personnel, most especially their children, will find Camp Cirilo Tolentino, a center for their bonding-time.
