Baguio police officers are constantly on the move patrolling the streets and directing traffic to provide safety and security to locals and tourists alike. This is a job that requires dedication and commitment to one’s profession, rain or shine.
Grab Phils. recognizes the sacrifices and efforts of the local police force. As part of the company’s corporate social responsibility, Grab Phils. recently donated 100 pcs. of raincoats to the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) and its Traffic Management Unit to aid them in their jobs especially when it rains.
Receiving the raincoats in behalf of the BCPO was Superintendent Freddie Lazona, Deputy City Director for Operations and Superintendent Armando P. Gapuz, Chief of BCPO’s Traffic Unit.
Roberto Belda, City Manager of Grab Baguio said that, “Grab as a company is here in Baguio to provide safe, convenient and efficient mode of transportation. Aside from this, we also provide support to our local police force knowing fully well that their job is not easy especially since they are always exposed to the vagaries of the weather.”
Both Lazona and Gapuz thanked Grab Phils. for their continuous recognition of the efforts of the police officers here in Baguio and wished the company more success in their efforts to provide safety and convenience both to the riding public and the taxi drivers as well.
Assisting in the turn-over of the raincoats are P/Sr. Insp. Ronald Wacnang, Chief Administrative Officer, BCPO, PO2 Fayne Balajo, BCPO Traffic Unit and Angelica Serrano, Grab Baguio City Executive.
