MANILA, Philippines – Quezon City First District Rep. Juan Carlos “Arjo” Atayde wants the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) to sustain its impressive drive of protecting the people and fighting criminal activities in its jurisdiction quickly.

In a speech after donating smartphones to the QCPD over the weekend at the Camp Karingal in Quezon City, Atayde praised the city’s finest policemen for actively doing their job, which resulted in resolving several crimes.

“Our policemen in QCPD are doing a great job, 24/7 day and night basis, and they are risking their lives every time they are in the line of duty,” Atayde, 32, said. “In our own little way, we are here to provide them with some smart phones to help them to fast track everything.”

During the Saturday visit, Atayde donated 10 new smart phones to the QCPD headed by Director Brig. General Nicolas Torre III, saying the gadgets would be used during police operations, surveillance and other matters.

The largest city in the Philippines, according to Atayde, needs the services and protection of the police particularly in areas such as Cubao, Diliman, La Loma, Novaliches, New Manila, Santa Mesa Heights, and San Francisco del Monte.

For their part, Torre III and the rest of the QCPD expressed gratitude to the congressman for the appreciation, saying the donated smartphones will be utilized by drone operators to monitor the city boosted by a clear transmission of footages through their command center.

Atayde, the veteran young actor, is also impressed with Torre’s QCPD swift action against crimes through the Quezon City’s 112 hotline, wherein police response time is just less than five minutes.

“The dedication of our police force is very important and we are hoping they continue the same drive and passion in serving our people,” Atayde added. “Their cooperation in every barangay really means a lot in promoting peace and crime prevention. We are very thankful.”
