Mayor Beng Climaco on Monday presented the Zamboanga City Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team with a certificate of recognition as a show of appreciation for their feat in winning the championship title in the recently concluded PRO-9 SWAT Challenge 2018.

“We are very proud of you,” Climaco said as she presented the certificate to Zamboanga City Mobile Force Company Commander PSupt. Rolando Barraquio and SWAT team leader PSInsp. Ahmed Ceazar Annuary during Monday’s press con in City Hall.

The SWAT bested other groups from other areas in the region and was named champion in the City Police Category and was also adjudged as Best in Rifle Match.

The team will represent the Zamboanga Peninsula region in the National SWAT challenge slated in Manila next month.

Climaco said the team placed third in the same competition last year but promised her to make up this year. “Babawi tayo ma’am,” the mayor quoted Barraquio. “Indeed you took on the challenge,” the mayor added.  (Sheila Covarrubias)
