“The Koban has not closed down,” DPS spokesman Dre Pangelinan said, adding that police officers are there whenever there is a scheduled event.

He said police units also operate in Lower Miha where the Tourism Oriented Policing Section or TOPS office is located.

Launched in May 2013, TOPS consists of bike patrols that roam the Garapan tourism district, Pangelinan said.

The Lower Miha location is more accessible and has more parking spaces for police patrol vehicles and bikes, he added.

The TOPS office is just behind QQ Car Rental in Garapan.
