Peru's President Ollanta Humala presented officially the new police patrol fleet which is composed of 500 vehicles to strengthen the Peruvian police force to fight crime and improve citizen safety across the country.
Peru's National Police (PNP) received the newly-acquired fleet during a delivery ceremony on Friday which was headed by President Humala.

During his remarks, the Peruvian leader stressed the force of law will greatly benefit when doing patrolling from these latest-tech vehicles as they have the ability to manage a police report

Likewise, President Humala announced the upcoming purchasing of a new fleet of smart police patrol cars and noted these acquisitions are part of the government's national security policy framework.

"We will put forward a new acquisition of patrol cars and motorcycles to foster both security in the country's inner regions and the work of the Highway Police," the head of State said at the event which was held at the headquarters of PNP's school of officers in the Lima's district of Chorrillos.

Humala pointed out that since the beginning of his administration a comprehensive  reform in the police force is taking place, including a range of measures such as salary increase and staff training programs.

Accompanying the President were the head of Peru's Ministerial Cabinet, Cesar Villanueva, and Interior Minister, Wilfredo Pedraza.
