NCRPO’s Regional Mobile Force Battalion and the Philippine National Police (PNP) Presidential Security Force Unit will also receive part of the donation.

According to Eleazar, the donation gives NCRPO a significant boost in its ability to fight crime and enhance its patrol operations. He said this gives police personnel no reason to perform badly in their job to safeguard their jurisdiction.

“With such capabilities, NCRPO Districts shall be able to fight crimes and maintain peace and order within their area of responsibility,” Eleazar said in a statement.

He also thanked the Korean government for the donation and asked district directors to use the items only in the exercise of official duties.

“Use them solely for its main purpose and take care of them like your own,” Eleazar told his men. /ee
