Aside from this, Teodoro also announced that the local government was constructing a P130 million eight-storey police station.

Other amenities included are a “wellness spa” and a chapel.

Also present during the courtesy visit were Eastern Police District director Brig. Gen. Johnson Almazan and Marikina Police chief Col. Restituto Arcangel.

“It’s a very heartwarming gesture to bring all the personnel of the directorate of the NCRPO. It’s the first time,” Teodoro said.
