The turnover ceremony was held on Monday, May 27, 2019 at Camp Karingal.
The mayor called for heightened police visibility to ensure the peaceful and orderly opening of classes on June 3, adding that the security of QC students, especially those enrolled in public schools, is a priority of the city government.
“This is Quezon City’s contribution to the promotion of peace and order in the city,” the mayor said, referring to the 75 premium N-Max motorcycles.
Meanwhile, QCPD director P/BGen Joselito Esquivel Jr. welcomed the city’s donation which he described as necessary to ensure the safety and security not only of QC students but the general public as well, from threats of criminal elements.
Designed for easy maneuvering especially on inner streets and tight areas, the new motorcycles, which are all equipped with blinkers, sirens, top-of-the-line brake system and crash guard, will be distributed to the 12 QCPD police stations as well as to the main police headquarter in Camp Karingal.
Aside from the new motorcycles, Mayor Bautista assured the law enforcers that the city government will continue to remain supportive of the needs of the QCPD, especially in terms of logistics, equipment, vehicles, fuel, firearms and ammunitions and even training funds.
The mayor added that new assault rifles, remote-controlled bomb disposal robots, and additional motorcycle units will be given next month.
Mayor Bautista received a plaque of appreciation from the QCPD for his continued support for the efforts of law enforcers in the city.
Since Mayor Bautista assumed office in 2010, the city government has already invested a considerable amount of money for the acquisition of additional vehicles and equipment for the city police.
