The Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO) has been allocated P2 million worth of equipment by the Philippine National Police (PNP) to enhance the local police force’s operational capabilities and the safety of its operatives.
BPPO director Col. Jonathan Cabal on Monday led the distribution of the equipment to various police units after their flag-raising ceremony at Camp Francisco Dagohoy in Tagbilaran City.
The equipment included 20 level III enhanced combat helmets, 40 level III undershirt bullet-proof vests and several pieces of handheld radio.
These were all blessed by Fr. Claverlito Migriño before handed over to the recipient police stations and units.
Cabal expressed gratitude to the PNP’s national command for the new equipment which he said would help officers in carrying out their duties.
“Of course, thankful tayo sa Crame that they think of the welfare ng mga policemen nila on the grounds. Becaise mga bullet proof vest and the Kevlar helmets are very important in the daily operational activities of our operatives,” Cabal said.
“Also, the radio will enhance coordination among police,” he added. (rt)
