The ceremony took place at the entrance of the Julio Monsalvo covered coliseum, where the Tenth Brigade received two Nissan vans for the Military Gaula to fight extortion and kidnapping, as well as 26 high-capacity Yamaha XT60 motorcycles to support safety in rural Valledupar.

Three minivans for intelligence work, a 12-passenger Renault minibus, a 35-passenger bus, a Toyota Prado TX armored van, and 48 Suzuki and Yamaha motorcycles were also handed over to the Police.

During the ceremony, the officers emphasized the work done by the Public Force to achieve greater security for all Cesar inhabitants.

Brigadier General Pablo Alfonso Bonilla Vásquez sent a message in which he highlighted the struggle to reach a better region and country: We are living a historic moment. A few years ago we had to worry about terrorist groups. Today the problem is different; since the problem is changing, we as a State Force must also change. The objective is to consolidate the security for the Cesar people, and that the changes that we experience every day lead us to live in a better country. To our children and grandchildren, we deliver a Colombia different from the one that we lived.

The Command of the Tenth Armored Brigade, attached to the First Division of the National Army, will continue to consolidate a team with the best tools for the safety of all the inhabitants of its jurisdiction.
