FOUR brand new vehicles purchased by the Dagupan City government were formally turned over by Mayor Belen T. Fernandez to the Dagupan City Police Station (DCPS) in a brief ceremony at the police station in Poblacion Oeste on April 3.
The units were received by P/Superintendent Jandale Sulit who was joined by P/Chief Superintendent Romulo Emocling Sapitula, Police Regional Office 1 (PRO1) director and P/Senior Superintendent Ronald Oliver Lee.
Fernandez said the new vehicles will add to the fleet of DCPS vehicles being used by the city police for their patrol activities and quick response to emergencies that shall ensure the safety of the people, instill discipline and maintain peace and order in the city.
“The safety of our family is very important in our city. Every member of the family will be happy when the city is peaceful and safe. It is also equally important that we maintain peace and order in our city so we could attract more investors to come especially that our city has new growth areas. Investors will not come in if we have poor peace and order situation”, said Fernandez.
The city government is also providing the Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) team of the city with new firearms and three big bikes for speed cops.
The city allocated P9.7 million for the modernization of DCPS equipment.
Meanwhile, Sapitula urged the city police to reciprocate the city’s support by not sleeping on job as he warned those caught sleeping inside the vehicles while the air conditioning system is on.
“Ibalik natin ito by means of doing our job at ang sinumang mahuli na natutulog sa loob ng sasakyan ay mananagot sa akin,” said Sapitula.
Sulit, on the other hand, assured the city mayor that the new patrol vehicles will help reduce the crime rate in the city.
“Mababa po ang crime rate natin dito sa Dagupan at sa pagdating ng mga bagong sasakyan asahan po natin na mas mapapa-igting pa po natin ang ating laban kontra sa krimen,” said Sulit.
Peace and order is one of the priority programs of Mayor Fernandez that is why during her first term of office, the DCPS received from the city government four new motorcycles and five mobile vehicles.
City Councilors Joey Tamayo and Marcelino Fernandez, City Administrator Farrah Marie G. Decano, PRO1 Public Information Officer Police Superintendent Ferdinand De Asis, the chiefs of police of San Carlos City and Urdaneta City, Jasper Ong of Toyota Dagupan, Pastor Narciso Centeno and Dr. Ashok Vasandani witnessed the turnover.
