Mayor Celso Lobregat said 84 units of high-powered rifle Sam Trailblazer M4 rifles have been purchased, delivered and tested and scheduled to be turned over to the Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO) this month.

The purchase of the M4 rifles would be the third time by the City Government.

The first was 116 M-16 Armalite rifles purchased in 2010 that were turned over to ZCPO in three batches, and the second was last year when 83 rifles of the same caliber were purchased and turned over.

Lobregat said the City Government is also set to turn over several units of L-300 and multi-cab vehicles as a replacement to old and dilapidated transportation facilities and in addition to the existing fleet of police vehicles donated by the local government aside from the M4 rifles.

Lobregat vowed that the City Government’s commitment to support and assist the ZCPO for public safety and security remains steadfast and aggressive.
