President Rodrigo Duterte needs only the very best tools for troopers and policemen even when they’re pricier than second hand items.

In his speech on the police service’s 116th anniversary in Camp Crame Wednesday (August 9), Duterte stated cops and troopers will only have the ability to struggle higher in the event that they’re ably outfitted.

He stated he has barred the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police from shopping for second hand items.

“If we do not have the money, we will just fight them with the bolo. But if you want to buy things, helicopters, I want all, all of the equipment for you, brand new, new ones,” Duterte joked.

The President repeatedly stated that he’ll make the improve of the police and army forces’ functionality a precedence throughout his time period.
