QC has new police precinct building at city hall
By Perfecto Raymundo, Jr.
The Quezon City government has provided the city police with a new building, with the aim of serving and protecting the public better.
Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista led the inauguration of the new two-storey Quezon City Hall Police Precinct inside the Quezon City Hall compound along Kalayaan Ave. on Monday.
The new precinct houses a total of six offices — the investigation room, evidence room, conference area with television (TV) monitor, holding area for children in conflict with the law, and two lockups for male and female detainees that can accommodate up to 20 persons.
The Quezon City Police District expressed gratitude to Bautista and the City Council for the new precinct building and its more spacious and convenient location.
“Makikita naman natin kung gaano ito ka-conducive para magtrabaho at tumanggap ng mga complaints at mga nangangailangan ng tulong (We see how conducive it is to work in and receive complaints and those needing help),” Quezon City Hall precinct commander Chief Insp. Rolando Lorenzo Jr. said.
“Mas makakapagtrabaho kami ng maayos kumpara doon sa dating opisina namin na maliit, at siksikan. Ngayon, halos lahat ng tao ay may kanya-kanya nang opisina (We would be able to work better now compared to our former office, which was small and overcrowded. Now, almost all personnel have their respective offices),” Lorenzo added.
National Police Commissioner Zenonida Brosas also commended the continuous support of the Quezon City government to its police force.
“Napakalaking pasasalamat ng kapulisan sa suporta ng Mayor ng Quezon City para maging disente at maayos ang kinalalagyan ng ating pulisya. Maliban doon, may iba pang suporta si Mayor Herbert Bautista para maging masigasig at masipag ang ating mga pulis (The police is expressing its utmost gratitude for the support of the Mayor of Quezon City to make the working condition of our police decent and conducive to working efficiently. Aside from that, Mayor Herbert Bautista has other forms of support to make our policemen persevering and industrious),” Brosas said. (PNA)
