The city’s elite special weapons and tactics team will be getting a new set of tools to fight crime, hopefully by next month,
This was bared by city administrator Leonides “Edi” Borja in a radio report.
He said at least 10 long firearms and bullet proof vests will be procured for the city SWAT team.
The investment is part of the effort of the city to help the local police in their work to maintain peace and order.
Borja said the new tools may arrive next month so that it can be used already by the police force in the city.
The city, under Mayor John Geesnell Yap, has been agressive in showing its support to the city police force.
Last Tuesday, the PNP inaugurated a P14-million building standing on a lot donated by the city government.
The new headquarters replaced the old station at the old city hall near the Cathedral.
