Police seeks help for MASCO motorcycles


TAGBILARAN CITY, February 3 (PIA)— The City Police under Chief George Vale asks authorities for more local government support especially in the provision of mobility assets. 

At the recent City Peace and Order Council (CPOC) Meeting held at the Jjs Seafoods Village, PCSupt. Geirge Vale emphasized the crucial help of the mobility of the city police as proven by the Motorcycle Anti Street Crimes Operatives (MASCO). 

Earlier, crimes in the city were largely done by motorcycle riding criminals, often in tandem, hitting unsuspecting targets in their most vulnerable times: texting while walking in dark streets, being in unsecured locations, or simply tending a nigh establishment without television capture. 

The culprits, almost always, tend to be motorcycle criminals riding in tandem. 
When MASCO started patrolling the city streets, crimes committed by criminals in motorcycles trimmed, and the cops on motor bikes resumed to checking on suspicious looking motorcycle drivers escaping checkpoints.

The City Government earlier provided the city police 3 brand new motorcycle units for the MASCO, reported Mayor John Geesnel Yap in his State of the city Address in July.

Of the 3, one unit was accordingly donated by the Bohol Chamber of Commerce and Industry, who will inevitably benefit from the anti-crime asset. The two more motorcycles come from the city government through Mayor Yap, city police sources said. 

Although the City police keeps a few vehicles, the responsibility of patrolling the streets and significantly increasing police presence in the streets prove to be logistically impossible, while the building traffic makes the motorcycles practical, according to city sources. 

This year, as the city struggles to go after what appeared to be liquidation squads roaming around hitting drug characters and petty thieves, Col. Vale believes more police presence could largely help. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
