Artemio was known to friends and acquaintances as âTemiong.â To the numerous people he had freely helped with their respective problems about either the law or law enforcement, he was known as âSarhentoâ ---the Spanish and Tagalog word for âsergeant.â

He joined the Imus Police Department, and within a short time, he rose to become a sergeant. He took the national Civil Service Commission exam for Chief of Police in 1964 and passed.
