Launching of BTAC’s 20 Bicycle Patrols, conducted today at Balabag Plaza

20 Bicycle Patrols have been turned-over to the members of the Boracay Tourists Assistance Center (BTAC) last Friday.

Following this, a formal launching of the said units is conducted today at the Balabag Plaza.

This comes after the Boracay Action group’s joint flag-raising.

According to Boracay PNP Chief Police Sr./Insp. Joeffer Cabural , the Police-on-bikes will take a spin on the island as part of the public’s awareness.

Cabural earlier, however, said that the activity will depend on the weather condition.

The program aims to widen their patrol’s coverage, and for a more prompt response to any untoward incidents in Boracay.

The Chief also confirmed the “Bicycle Training” that 20 BTAC members have undergone in Camp Delgado in Iloilo City.

Included in the said training was the proper use of bicycles when responding to crime scenes, proper use of firearms when on the bike, and many others.

He added that they, at BTAC were the first batch to go through the training for this New PNP Program, which focuses primarily in Western Visayas, particularly in Boracay.
