PNP chief ‘Bato’ issues last minute-orders to ensure safe Yuletide

Dec 23, 2016 @ 16:04

With the Christmas Season to go into high gear this weekend, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa on Friday reminded again all police commanders of the operational guidelines and procedures to be undertaken in maintaining order, law enforcement and in providing public safety services during the holidays.

Dela Rosa said that earlier orders for enhanced security operations before, during and after Christmas Day and New Year’s Day shall be strictly observed as it is expected to cause influx of people in shopping centers, churches, transport terminals and other public places.

Likewise, newly-appointed acting Director for Police Community Relations (DPCR) Chief Supt. Noel Constantino ordered all police units to avoid extra-curricular or insignificant activities in their respective jurisdictions, to ensure public safety.

“Police units in the field were advised to refrain from soliciting funds, but to undertake a simple, meaningful yet cost-effective observance of the Yuletide Season and give an opportunity for the PNP families to strengthen camaraderie while ensuring that duty officers are still on-guard in streets,” Constantino said.

The Operational Guidelines for “Ligtas Paskuhan 2016” involve police presence like the establishment of Police Assistance Desks (PADs) and deployment of road safety marshals; focused law enforcement operations to include the continuous conduct of PNP “Campaign Plan Double Barrel Alpha” and the implementation of Republic Act No. 7183, or the “Illegal Manufacture and Sale of Firecrackers and Pyrotechnics”; target hardening measures like utilization of force multipliers; and police community partnership and information operations.
