Saturday, September 22, 2012
MAYOR Celso Lobregat has turned 43 units of handheld radios to the Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO) in line with the City Government’s constant commitment to assist and support law enforcement agencies.
Turned over on Thursday along with the handheld radio facilities were three base radios and 47 extra battery packs--all worth approximately P700,000.
The radio sets will be for the use of the different police stations while the three base radios were for the use of the Police Stations 5 and 6 and Patrol 117.
Lobregat said the purchase of the radio sets is purposely to enhance communication of the local police force.
Lobregat stressed that the radio facilities form part of the series of equipment that the City Government is giving to the police.
A few weeks ago, the City Government, through Lobregat also turned over computer units, binoculars and vehicles to the police intended to help improve in safekeeping efforts.
“This is not the first and this is not the last but this is part of our continuous assistance to the police and other law enforcement agencies,” Lobregat averred.
“We will be giving many, many more assistance to the police,” he added.
Zamboanga City Public Safety Company Group Director Superintendent William Gadayan received the radio facilities on behalf of ZCPO officer-in-charge James Mejia, who was out of town.
Gadayan pointed out that the radio facilities will be a big help to the police in its effort to maintain law and order in the city.
Gadayan thanked the City Government through Lobregat for the unending support and assistance.
