Imus City: The Cavite provincial government donated 10 brand-new patrol cars worth P7 million to the Cavite Provincial Police Office on Friday morning at the turnover ceremony held at Camp Pantaleon Garcia in Imus City, Cavite.
Gov. Jonvic Remulla and Vice Gov. Jolo Revilla led the turnover of 10 brand new cars to Provincial Police Director Joselito Esquivel Jr., and witnessed by Calabarzon Regional Director Police Chief Supt. Jesus Gatchalian and members of the Cavite Police Force.
Esquivel said the brand new cars are equipped with hand-held radios, blinkers and GPS to monitor the mobile patrol movements.
These cars will be used to patrol the strategic areas in Cavite including the business establishments, supermarkets, banks, pawnshops and other schools to prevent the crimes to be committed, he added.
The cars will have a P15,000 monthly gasoline allowance and a budget for monthly mechanical check ups.
Remulla said that he has committed to donate 10 brand-news cars annually, since he was elected in 2010 there were 40 patrol cars, which were distributed in 23 municipalities and cities in Cavite.
He added that he is targeting 100 patrol cars until his term as governor expires in 2016.
