A vehicle robot worth P65 million acquired by the Quezon City government will boost the city’s campaign against crime and terrorism.
The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) said the robot called RMI-9XS would be used in the remote handling of improvised explosive devices and hazardous chemicals.
QCPD Director BGen. Ronnie Montejo said the new acquisition would protect and upgrade the tools of the police force.
The city police also has new eight sniper rifles worth P9 million and 96 submachine guns worth P9.5 million.
The sniper rifles, to be exclusively used by members of the Special Weapons and Tactics team, were equipped accessories such as night vision, goggles, Kevlar helmet, range finder and telescopes.
Montejo expressed gratitude to the city government and Mayor Josefina Belmonte for the donation of the high-powered equipment.
