THE Mabalacat City Government has procured police vehicles, motorcycles, firearms, and two-way radios to enhance the operational readiness of the city police.
Mayor Crisostomo Garbo recently led the turnover of vehicles and equipment to policemen headed by Police Lieutenant Colonel Jerry B. Corpuz.
Garbo said his administration is providing equipment to the local police to improve their capability in fighting criminality.
Executive Assistant Rosan Paquia, who is also the city's planning officer, said the police received two pick-up trucks, six motorcycles, 18 M16 armalite rifles, and several radios.
Corpuz thanked Garbo, the City Council headed by Vice Mayor Gerald Aquino, and other officials for their support to the city police.
Garbo earlier instructed Corpuz to initiate a crackdown against all forms of criminalities, including the eradication of illegal drugs in the city.
The mayor said a peaceful place will be conducive for tourists and investors.
The local police were also directed to conduct round-the-clock patrolling to prevent crimes.
