PAGADIAN CITY — The local police in partnership with the city government has trained selected policemen to comprise the “MotorCop” group to combat motorcycle-riding criminals in this city.

Supt. Glenn Dulawan, local police chief, said Tuesday the “MotorCop” group would be comprised of 30 policemen who have just completed a two-day training from Saturday until Sunday on gun handling while driving and marksmanship.

Dulawan said the training was funded by the local government through the City Peace and Order Council chaired by Mayor Romeo Pulmones following recommendation from Councilor Ernesto Mondarte.

Dulawan said they will be tasked to conduct roving patrols as well as to respond to distress calls.

Dulawan said Pulmones turned over Tuesday motorcycles to his command to be used by the members of the MotorCops.

He said they will be also issued radio communication sets and the city government is providing additional gasoline allocation for the group.
