Makati Mayor Abby Binay said the city government recently donated an assortment of firearms and other protective and crime-fighting equipment worth P93,402,050 to the Philippine National Police (PNP)-Makati City to strengthen its capability to maintain peace and order in the city. 

The mayor said the city has turned over to the Makati Police Department several assault rifles- reloading machines, including 100 units of TAVOR Assault Rifle, 100 units of Galil Assault Rifle, three units of Galil Sniper Rifle, 45 units of KDS Tactical Gas Mask, 70 units of Meprolight Red Dot Reflex Sight Model, 35 units of Meprolight Night Vision Scope Model, and two units of DILLON Precision. 

"We continue to give priority to the modernization of the local police force’s equipment. We know how crucial it is to enhance their crime-fighting capability especially during the pandemic, for the sake of our residents and all other stakeholders,” Mayor Abby said.

“We have to maintain discipline and obedience to the law as we gradually reopen businesses and strive to promote a healthy business environment for faster economic recovery,” she underscored.

Last September, the city turned over a number of protective gear to the city police, including 3,390 pairs of combat shoes, 3,571 pairs of patrol shoes, 1,488 holster with rig, 691 sets of athletic uniforms, 2,142 hand cuffs, 1,339 belts, and 1,116 PNP bull caps. 

In 2019, Makati ranked as the 4th Safest City in Southeast Asia in a survey conducted by international online research group, Numbeo. The city’s high safety index has been largely attributed to strong police visibility and the substantial support of the city governmen
