CALOOCAN CITY – The Caloocan City government has donated new firearms and motorcycle patrol units for the city’s police.

Malapitan said the local government has been procuring firearms and motorcycles for the police to ensure peace and order in the city as it is one of his major concerns to continue making Caloocan a progressive city.

“We want to maintain peace and order in Caloocan now. We are giving them new patrol vehicles and firearms to boost anti-criminality operations,” he added.

Caloocan police vowed to bolster its anti-criminality operations to maintain peace and order in the city.

"The whole city police force is very much thankful for the unwavering support of Mayor Oca. Our policemen will always respond quickly to calls for law enforcement and service," said del Rosario.

Days before Christmas, the city council kicked off the Christmas season with the simultaneous lighting of University of Caloocan-North, University of Caloocan-South, Caloocan City North Medical Center, Glorietta Park, Caloocan Sports Complex, Caloocan North City Hall and the Caloocan South City Hall.

Spotlight was focused on Caloocan South City Hall and the C-Cube Commercial Complex which were adorned with lights and a towering 40-foot Christmas tree. Attendees were also treated to a grand fireworks display during the countdown.

“This is the kind of holiday season we want to give the people of Caloocan- bright and festive. We hope that this event ushers a joyful and peaceful Christmas,” said Malapitan who led the switching ceremony with Vice Mayor Luis Macario Asistio and Representative Edgar Erice.
