The first seven patrol cars acquired by the city government were officially turned over to the Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) headed by its acting director PCol. Thomas Joseph Martir on Friday, January 21.
“These cars will primarily be used for our peace and order. I am also happy that these came out during the time that there is an increase in our crime volume,” Leonardia said in a press release.
The mayor said the city government will also be acquiring seven more patrol cars for the BCPO.
“Our goal here is to help, we are supposed to work together and assist them in any way we can. The BCPO can use the patrol cars to improve police visibility and mobility,” Leonardia said.
Martir said the first seven patrol cars will be given to police stations 1, 2 , 3 ,4 ,6, 7 and 8.*
