10K Metro Manila police officers will protect Labor Day celebrations.
To protect the Labor Day celebration on May 1, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) will send out more than 10,000 officers.
Maj. Gen. Edgar Alan Okubo, the commander of the NCRPO, announced on Saturday that more than 1,000 members of the Reactionary Standby Support Force (RSSF) from the regional headquarters will join the 10,529 local police officers in Metro Manila.
He pointed out that labor unions and progressive organizations frequently organize large-scale protests and actions to coincide with Labor Day celebrations.
According to Okubo, the security plan calls for the deployment of strategic people, management of civil disturbances, anti-criminality intervention, counterterrorism, traffic management, an emergency reaction team, and the supervision of lightning rallies, among other security measures.
The “no permit, no rally” rule—apart from in freedom parks—was repeated by him.
“We are not the rallyists’ adversaries. I can assure you that the NCRPO is always prepared to protect the public from any danger, and I can also assure you that your police force will handle anyone organizing rallies with the greatest tolerance and respect for human rights. To ensure the smooth running of this event, protesters must abide by current laws and ordinances, Okubo added.
Col. Jean Fajardo, a spokesman for the PNP, stated that the deployment’s primary focus is on freedom parks and other locations where protests and other activities are anticipated in connection with the Labor Day holiday.
According to her, Mendiola in Manila, the Quezon Memorial Circle, the Welcome Rotonda in Quezon City, and other locations where militant activists frequently stage protests are among the venues to be secured.
She claimed that to prepare for a second wave of people leaving to take advantage of the long weekend, transportation hubs were secured early, particularly in Metro Manila and other major regions.
She added that the PNP’s alert level had not been raised despite police commanders on the ground having the power to do so depending on the circumstances in their jurisdictions.
This will be a routine alert, but the national headquarters will undoubtedly be keeping an eye on local happenings, according to Fajardo.
