Forty new patrol cars including several other new equipment were turned over on Wednesday by Cavite Provincial Director, Police Col. Marlon Santos together with provincial staff as part of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Patrol Plan 2030.

Santos spearheaded the turnover of 40 Toyota Wigo patrol cars, 260 body-worn cameras, and 250 breathalyzers received by the chiefs of police and unit chiefs held at Camp BGen. Pantaleon Garcia in Imus City, Cavite.


Santos said that this is part of the PNP Patrol Plan 2030 to optimize logistical resources and modernization program to achieve excellent performance in police service, basically patrolling.

“These patrol cars newly loaned from the provincial government will help ensure a peaceful and orderly province,” he said.

He reminded the chiefs of police and unit chiefs to supervise the proper maintenance and cleanliness of the vehicles.

“Patrol cars will strengthen the police capabilities and over-all anti-criminality campaigns of the PNP; body-worn cameras will be useful to observe the legality and transparency of police operation; and breathalyzers will help determine the amount of alcoholic for law violators,” he added.

He also expects an outstanding police performance and that these patrol cars should always be deployed on major thoroughfares and must be visible on streets.

Santos expressed gratitude and appreciation to Governor Jonvic Remulla for his generosity and continuous support to Cavite PNP.
