ORLANDO, Fla. — Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolon arrived in Puerto Rico Thursday with a fleet of patrol cars meant to help support recovery efforts on the Island.
The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Orlando will join Chief Rolon to present the 15 donated patrol vehicles to the City of Ponce Police Department in a special ceremony Friday morning.
In 2017, then Deputy-Chief Rolon was among 12 officers sent to Puerto Rico to help local law enforcement during the recovery from Hurricane Maria.
Orlando officials pledged then to continue to support the island in its recovery efforts.
“That promise and the long-lasting relationships forged through law enforcement partnerships have led to this newest effort to aid in recovery,” the department said in a press release.
The official ceremony unveiling the patrol cars is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Friday morning.
Representatives from Puerto Rico attending include the Mayor of Ponce, Luis M. Irizarry Pabon, and members of the Puerto Rico Legislature.
