A total of 210 police 4x4  mobile patrol cars will soon arrive for the different police stations nationwide.

Philippine National Police Directorate for Logistics Director Juanito B. Vaño told newsmen on Saturday that 210  KIA 4x4 all-terrain patrol cars from South Korea are expected by Camp Crame anytime.

Vaño said that PNP is also expecting more long firearms for policemen and high-speed patrol boat for the  Maritime Police.

Vaño explained that PNP  does not focus on the acquisition of patrol boats because the Philippine Navy and Philiippine Coast  Guard are largely in charge of the country’s  sea territory.
