New patrol vehicles for Davao City police and security forces

DAVAO CITY, March 17 (PIA)- Dabawenyos were able to see the  brand-new fleet of patrol vehicles who joined the annual Parada Dabawenyo civic-military parade in the occasion of the Araw ng Dabaw celebrations yesterday (March 16).

Colonel Cristobal Zaragosa head of the Task Force Davao said the new vehicles will be of great help in their mobility.

Four brand new Isuzu pick-ups were given to the Army counter-terrorism unit tasked to secure the city. it now has about 20 vehicles.

Meanwhile the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) has received 35 brand new Isuzu patrol pick ups to beef up their existing 56 patrol vehicles.

City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte graced the turn-over event of the new car, he thanked the DCPO, the Task Force and the 911 for their efforts in making Davao a safe and peaceful city.

Davao City's top cop Police Senior Superintendent Vicente Danao said the new vehicles will be distrubted to the different police stations across the city particularly in the business area covered by stations 1,2 and 3. He cited the need for more vehicles in the area as these are populated districts.

The local government of Davao City has been a regular provider of patrol vehicles and motorcycles to the city's police force.

Last year, DCPO got Indian-made Tata vehicles to be utilized for administrative purposes which allows the patrol cars to focus more on patrol duties. And in 2013 it received from the city government 22 Toyota Hi-Lux pickups. (PIA/RG Alama)
