Makati donates Israeli firearms to local police
Major Gen. Debold Sinas, National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief, lauded Makati City for being the first local government unit in the country to donate top-of-the-line Israeli firearms to local police.
“At present, the Makati Police Department is the only police force in Metro Manila with firearms from Israel, a country that is famous for producing high-quality rifles,” Sinas said.
Mayor Abby Binay recently led the distribution of new firearms to officers of the Makati Police Department to maintain peace and order in the city, especially during the pandemic.
These included 100 units of Tavor assault rifle, 100 units of Galil assault rifle, and three units of Galil sniper rifle.
The city government also donated 70 units of Meprolight Red Dot Reflex Sight Model, 45 units of KDS Tactical Gas Mask, 35 units of Meprolight Night Vision Scope Model, and two units of Dillon Precision.
The mayor also said she would hire experts from Israel to train local police officers and improve their crime-fighting capabilities.
“Law enforcement training and capacity building are both important in order to serve and protect Makatizens, aside from giving the local police force upgraded firearms,” she said.
Last September, the city government also donated 3,571 pairs of patrol shoes, 3,390 pairs of combat shoes, 2,142 handcuffs, 1,488 holsters with rig, 1,339 belts, 1,116 PNP bull caps, and 691 sets of athletic uniforms to the Makati Police Department.
Mayor Abby urged the public to follow government policies and report suspicious individuals to the police for proper action.
