As part of the city government’s continuing support to the police, Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday afternoon turned over 28 handheld radio sets worth P250,000 to the Zamboanga City Police Office through its officer-in-charge Sr. Supt. Edwin Soledad.

Lobregat said the radio sets will be distributed to the different police units to strengthen their communication capability in the performance of their functions, particularly in law enforcement and keeping the city’s peace and order.

“This is part of our continuing effort to support the local police as we have been and continuously constructing police stations, community police assistance centers in the barangays and other administrative support like office equipment,” the mayor said.

On Monday, he said, he will be inaugurating the Community Police Assistance Center (COMPAC) and barangay hall in Rio Hondo.   

Last week, Lobregat turned over to the police the city government’s donation of four personal computers with complete accessories amounting to P121,000 in an effort to make the local police efficient in their administrative functions.

Col. De Ocampo accepted the computers during the simple turnover in the mayor’s office as witnessed by other police officers and City Hall Chief Executive Assistant Mario Roca.

According to him, the city government has assisted the police in so many ways than one like the provision of transportation, gasoline, office equipment, communication facilities to infrastructure projects like construction and/or renovation of police stations.

He said more assistance are in the offing for the police as part of his administration’s commitment to keeping the city’s peace and order. — Vic Larato
