Lim not only in the service of the Metropolitan Police Force but also by all in the government service.” — Manila Mayor Ramon D.Bagatsing.

December 29,1971, The Manila Times
“…One of the few admirable officers of the MPD is a man slated for the “freezer.” An officer whose principal sin is loyalty to the man who gave him his breaks. This man is Col. Alfredo S. Lim of Precint 8, the last man to remain by Mayor Villegas side after all his former “loyal” officers have found their way to the Bagatsing Camp. Lim is a rare bird. If he were a politician, he’s the kind who does not change parties nor turn against his party after it loses an election.
January 14,1972, Daily Star
“ We wonder how the Jaycees feel considering that Lt. Col. Alfredo S. Lim who was chosen Outstanding Policeman for Five years running by five different boards of judges has been some sort of security man and parking lot attendant and receptionist at the Manila Police Headquarters.
We realize that the man was identified with Mayor Villegas… but that does not make him any less a good cop considering that people other than Yeba recognized his outstanding achievements in the field of police work.
To put him in the freezer, so to speak, is to waste good cop material…which the Manila Police need.” (Itutuloy)
