Mayor Celso Lobregat Tuesday turned over to the police, 11 multicab vehicles in line with his administration’s ever-aggressive assistance and support to law enforcement agencies that include the police and military.

Assisted by Councilors Rudy Lim, Percival Ramos, Myra Paz Abubakar, Mike Alavar, Rey Candido and Eddie Saavedra, Mayor Lobregat handed over the vehicles to Police Regional Director PCSupt. Napoleon Estilles, former City Police OIC director PSSupt. Edwin de Ocampo and incumbent OIC Police Director PSSupt. James Nemejia during rites in front of City Hall yesterday morning.

Mayor Lobregat said the multi-cab vehicles are part of a series of project package that the city government will turn over to the police this month. “This is part of a series of turnover, in a week or two weeks, 6 new L300 [vehicles] will be for replacement and 83 firearms will also be turned over [to the police]”.
Of the total 11 multi-cab vehicles handed over to the police yesterday, 7 are for replacement while 4 are new augmentation to the fleet of vehicles donated by the city government to the police.

The 7 replacements are assigned to various police units while the new four units will be assigned to the Tourist Police, Ayala Police Station, Recodo COMPAC and Sta. Maria police station.

Over a month ago, Mayor Lobregat together personally inspected all police vehicles donated by the city to determine which are for replacement and for repair.

According to Mayor Lobregat, most of those replaced vehicles were 2001, 2003 vintage and are economically beyond repair.

Chief Supt. Estilles and Col. Mejia in their individual messages expressed gratitude to the city government through Mayor Lobregat for the consistent support and assistance to the police all through the years.

“The police are very grateful to the city government especially Mayor Lobregat and the City Council for the help of logistics mobility,” Estilles declared stressing that with the continuous support, there will be less reason for the police to falter in peace keeping efforts.

He assured that the police are constantly implementing innovations and new ideas to put a stop to crime incidents.

Sr. Supt. Mejia for his part assured that the police will make use of the multi-cab vehicles as it is intended.

Aside from donating the vehicles, the city government is also providing the fuel allocation for the said units.

Also assisting the mayor during the turn over rites yesterday was City Hall chief executive assistant Mario Roca — Sheila Covarrubias
