PNP implements a security strategy to ensure the safety of “Undas” vacations
The Philippine National Police (PNP) has implemented its security strategy to guarantee the general populace’s protection throughout the long weekend commemorating “Undas” (All Saints and All Souls Days).
Gen. Rodolfo Azurin Jr., head of the Philippine National Police, ordered the deployment of 85% of police officers for public safety and law enforcement tasks on Thursday in anticipation of increased public activity throughout the holiday.
To reduce congestion in cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbaria ahead of All Saints’ Day on Nov. 1, Azurin also advised people to pay their respects to their deceased loved ones.
Additionally, travelers are urged to make the required security arrangements with the village in advance and to use caution when leaving their homes.
According to Azurin’s directives, the PNP national headquarters distributed to all PNP units and offices the operational guidelines describing the particular parameters for security coverage and other public safety activities in the observation of Undas.
According to the operating rules, the office with primary responsibility for supervising and coordinating all PNP unit public safety operations in areas of engagement is the Directorate for Police Community Relations.
Police units are also told to keep security guards on duty at all times around major thoroughfares, public cemeteries, and transportation hubs.
In addition, the PNP would open at least one Police Assistance Center in each public cemetery or memorial park in collaboration with regional administrations, volunteer groups for the general public, and civic clubs.
For the first time in two years, the government would once more let people pay respects to their deceased loved ones by visiting cemeteries, columbaria, and memorial parks.
To stop the coronavirus from spreading during the Undas vacations, several areas have previously been ordered closed.
