OVCCA gives tires, car battery to Los Banos police

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Community Affairs (OVCCA) donated on 24 July 2015 four GT Radial tires and a 3SMF car battery to the Los Banos Municipal Police Station in support of the Philippine National Police P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030.

A small gathering was held at the Los Banos Municipal Hall among Mayor Caesar P. Perez, Vice Chancellor for Community Affairs, Dr. Serlie Barroga-Jamias, Assistant Vice Chancellor Genaro A. Cuaresma, University Police Force (UPF) Chief Ricardo T. Silab, Los Banos police officers, and staff from the OVCCA to formalize the giving of the donation.

According to VC Jamias and AVC Cuaresma, the donation aims to strengthen the town-and-gown relationship between the local government of Los Banos and UPLB.

“Umaasa kami na malaki ang maitutulong ng aming munting donasyon para sa safety and security ng Los Banos,” AVC Cuaresma said. (We are hoping that our little donation will be a big help in the safety and security of Los Banos).

Hon. Caesar Perez expressed his gratitude for the support and his hope for enhanced partnership in the future.

“Nawa’y magtipon at magtulungan pa ang UPLB at ang lokal na pamahalaan ng Los Banos sa hinaharap,” he said. (May UPLB and the local government of Los Banos gather and support each other more in the future).

The donation was used to replace the tires and battery of one of the patrol cars of the Los Banos Municipal Police Station.

The OVCCA also extends its support to the local government of Los Banos by providing some amount of gasoline to the Los Banos Municipal Police Station and to two critical barangays: Batong Malake and Putho-Tuntungin. In return, the security personnel of the barangays help in keeping students living or staying off-campus safe and secure. (Miguel Victor T. Durian)
