PPA increases port security because of the surge in vacationers

To deal with the surge in port visitors throughout the holiday season, the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) has ordered increased security in all ports under its control.

In a statement on Tuesday, PPA General Manager Jay Santiago said that in addition to the 24/7 operation of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras as part of its Port Surveillance System (PSS) located at the PPA head office in Manila, more than 200 port police officers would be deployed to all PPA ports while wearing body-worn cameras.

The PSS covers 52 PPA sites across the nation, giving the PPA central office the ability to confirm the circumstances in these places.

Santiago reassured travelers that they could contact the port police with any problems they might have at any time.

In particular, at the busiest time of the year, he commanded port police officers to perform “honest and transparent tasks.”

“I hope you can learn from or aspire to the good deeds of those who came before you and provided outstanding service. Even though I support numerous initiatives to further enhance our service delivery, I anticipate that you’ll continue to take part in preventing any wrongdoings, he said.

The PPA predicts that by year’s end, there would be 57 million port passengers, a “200 percent” increase over data from 2021.

In order to “ensure” secure and safe sea traffic over the holiday season, the PPA has so far also implemented the “Oplan Biyaheng Ayos” and “No Leave Policy” for port workers.
