Korea donates 142 motorbikes to boost PNP anti-criminality drive

The Philippine National Police (PNP) received today, September 26, 142 motorbikes from the Korean Government under the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) project to boost police anti-criminality drive.

In a simple ceremony today at Camp Crame in Quezon City, Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo M. Aňo personally witnessed the turnover ceremony of 142 motorbikes along with PNP Chief, Police General Oscar Albayalde.

On Korean counterparts, present in the ceremony were Korean Ambassador H.E Han Dong-Man and Commissioner General of the Korea National Police Agency Min Gab-Ryong.

Albayalde said these latest additions to police mobility will be distributed in Metro Manila, Angeles City, Baguio City, Cebu City and Davao City to bolster anti-criminality and police visibility efforts.

“This is a noble move of our Korean counterparts as the PNP is stern to provide immediate response to incidents and crime in cities,” he said.

On July 12, 2017, the KOICA project agreement has been signed between the PNP and Korean Embassy on enhancing the criminal investigation capability and anti-criminality campaign of the PNP as the first cooperative project between the Republic of Korea and the Philippines.

KOICA said this the last tranche of the equipment support to the PNP under the Project titled “Enhancing the Criminal Capability of the Philippine National Police (PNP)” since 2017. PNP
