Chief Insp. Earl Castillo, head of the Marikina police Criminal Investigation Division, said the new tracking devices would be a big help to law enforcers in responding to the needs of the public.

Chief Insp. Norman Florentino, head of the Marikina police operations division, said each GPS unit costs P30,000 and the accompanying digitalized map is priced at around P100,000.

It was gathered that the GPS devices have initially been installed into the patrol cars of five barangays: Malanday, Barangka, Nangka, Sto. Niño, and Concepcion Uno.
