Central Luzon cops get 35 ‘dirt bikes’ for anti-crime operations
MABALACAT CITY — The Police Regional Office 3 has received 35 units of 150 cc all-terrain motorcycles from the Philippine National Police (PNP) for the local campaign against motorcycle-riding criminals.
At a ceremony in Camp Julian Olivas in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga province on Tuesday (Jan. 25), the PNP directorate for logistics turned over the 35 “dirt bikes” to Central Luzon police director Brig. Gen. Cesar Pasiwen.
The turnover of motorcycles is in line with the national police’s capability enhancement program.
A police chaplain blessed the motorcycles before they were turned over to different police offices in the region.
Pasiwen said the motorcycle would enhance the regional police’s anti-criminality campaign. He said the police’s mobilization capability and ability to respond to distress calls would improve using the dirt bikes.
