CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan –New guns, new fast vehicles and a new home.
After enduring years of providing service like “sardines” inside a small overcrowded police station at the City Hall, the city police has finally moved to a much bigger and spacious three-story headquarters beside the Malolos City Sports and Convention Center in Bgy. Bulihan here, where the new city hall is also being constructed.
Aside from building them a new home, City Mayor Atty. Christian D. Natividad also announced the City police department will also have their own Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit equipment with two new SWAT mobile command vehicles, motorcycles and brand new automatic assault rifles.
“This is how we provide priority to the security of our citizens and the preservation of peace and order in our fast booming city,” Natividad said.
He said that the City is not only situated in the very heart of the province but is also the capital of Bulacan and has once been the Capital of the Republic when the Malolos Congress was convened in Sept. 15, 1898 up to the time when thew First Philippine Republic was born on January 23, 1899. By nighttime the City is populated by more than 250,000 individuals and at daytime it is increased to about 600,000 as more people come to the capital city.
‘Because of this we should stand together and give our people a good night sleep and make them wake up happy and safe,” Natividad, whose father—the late Fisrt District Conressman Teodulo C. Natividad –was the author of the PNP law, said.
He said the city police will also have four brand new big motorcyle bikes to complement the eight units that they will used against riding-in-tandem criminals.
Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado and Central Luzon police director Chief Supt. Amador Corpuz commended Mayor Natividad and City of Malolos police chief Supt. Heryl Bruno for making the Malolos police one of the best in the country.
Alvarado said that the security measures being imnplemented in the city and the rest of the province makes Bulacan condusive to business but not condusive to criminals and lawless elements.
Corpuz, on the other hand, said the regional police office will form more SWAT teams in the other provinces in the region to protect it from any terror attacks and crime.
