Twelve brand-new patrol vehicles were turned over Wednesday to the Las Piñas Police Force to boost its campaign against criminality in the city.
The patrol cars—eight Toyota Hilux trucks and four Isuzu Crosswind SUVs—came from the city government led by Mayor Imelda T. Aguilar and the National Capital Region Police Office.
Aguilar led the turnover ceremony together with Vice Mayor Luis Bustamante and members of the city council to City Chief of Police Senior Supt. Marion Balonglong.
In turning over the new vehicles, Aguilar stressed the importance of police visibility in line with her policy prioritizing public order and safety.
“I trust that with the additional vehicles our police force would maximize its efficiency and roving capabilities to quickly respond to the peace and order concerns of the residents,” the mayor said.
Las Piñas City has consistently ranked as one of the cities with the lowest crime rate in the National Capital Region.
