Our city has made great strides in terms of safety and peace, and we aim to continue strengthening our efforts so that our residents can continuously benefit,” Malapitan said.

I’ve always said that when the streets and corners are well-lit, it’s like having watchful eyes when we walk at night. That’s why even before half of the year is over, we’ve already installed nearly a hundred street lights to ensure you are guided by light until you reach your destination,” he added.

The new lighting installations are part of the mayor’s pledge to have “brighter streets for a safer city” in Caloocan. (PIA-NCR)
