THE Cebu City Police Office has asked for P100.2 million worth of new vehicles and  P14.1 million worth of rifles, bulletproof vests and ammunition as part of  security preparations for two major international events.

“The procurement of mobility for police office is very important in preparation for the upcoming International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) and Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) Summit next year,” acting Cebu City police chief Supt. Marciano Agas Batiancela Jr. said in a letter to Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama.
