QC cops get new patrol cars, Galils from city gov’t
The Quezon City government has donated 25 brand-new patrol cars and 100 Galil rifles assault to the Quezon City Police District in a boost to the local peace and order campaign.
Mayor Herbert Bautista on Thursday formally turned over vehicles cars and firearms to Philippine National Director General Oscar Albayalde and QCPD director Chief Supt. Joselito Esquivel at the district headquarters in Camp Karingal.
Bautista called on the PNP chief to continue instilling discipline among the ranks. In response, Albayalde said the occasion should serve as a reminder for all PNP personnel to perform their duty with integrity and respect.
“I expect all of you to further intensify your anticrime strategies. We will not stop until our fellow countrymen feel safe and secure in roaming the streets of the Metro. Thus, I urge you to give your best shot in performing our sworn mandate,” Albayalde told QCPD members.
In May, the city government also beefed up QCPD’s logistics with a donation of 1,250 Taurus Cal. 40 Model PT840 semiautomatic pistols and three Montero sport utility vehicles.
In 2017, City Hall also gave 50 Toyota Vios units and 150 Yamaha motorcycles to the local police. —JODEE A. AGONCILLO
