By Jennifer C. Tilos

DUMAGUETE CITY, Oct. 23 (PIA) — The Dumaguete City Police’s City Quick Response Team (CQRT) received another two brand-new motorcycles from an academic institution here.

Silliman University (SU), through its president Dr. Ben Malayang III, during the flag raising ceremony Monday at City Hall turned over units of Honda XR 200 motorcycles and a helmet to Dumaguete City Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria, who then handed them over to Police Chief James Goforth.

In his message, Dr. Malayang said the donation brings to three the total number of motorcycles donated by Silliman to the city police office so far.

The donation is a show of support of the Silliman community to help the city government’s peace program and to help increase the mobility patrol of the Philippine National Police (PNP) here.

Mayor Sagarbarria, for his part, lauded the support of Silliman University to help the police, especially the CQRT members, as they will use the motorcycles in patrolling the city streets and outskirt barangays, including the Silliman University campus against criminal elements.

The donation exemplifies the cooperation and partnership between government and the private sector for the maintenance of peace and order in the City of Gentle People, Mayor Sagarbarria said.

He encouraged the private sector to give all kinds of help to the government because not all services can be performed by the local government alone to maintain the peace and order in the city.

Present during the turnover ceremony were Vice Mayor Woodrow Maquiling, Sr., City Administrator William Ablong, City Councilors Antonio Remollo, Lani Ramon, and staff of Silliman University.

SU also donated two big wall clocks which are now installed at the Quezon park. (rmn/JCT/PIA7-Negros Oriental)
