Cops encouraged people to beef up security in public locations during the holidays.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) reminded all police commanders on Thursday of the operational standards and procedures to be followed in preserving order, law enforcement, and delivering public safety services, with only two days till Christmas.

PNP chief Gen. Dionardo Carlos said in a statement that earlier orders for increased security operations before, during, and after Christmas Day and New Year’s Day will be strictly followed because the holidays are expected to result in crowding in shopping malls, churches, transportation terminals, and other public places.

He also told all police units to avoid superfluous actions in their jurisdictions while maintaining a police presence and ensuring public safety.

“Police patrollers were stationed in key locations such as malls, churches, and parks to remind the public of the minimum public health standards for the usage of face masks, as well as to observe the physical separation,” stated the statement “Carlos remarked.

The establishment of Police Assistance Desks and the deployment of road safety marshals are among the operational guidelines for Ligtas Paskuhan 2021, which also include targeted law enforcement operations such as the continuous conduct of the PNP Campaign Against Illegal Drugs and the implementation of RA No 7183 (Illegal Manufacture and Sale of Firecrackers and Pyrotechnics); target hardening measures such as the use of force multipliers; and police-community partnership and information operations.

The PNP is also collaborating with the Department of Health, the Bureau of Fire Protection, and other relevant agencies to eliminate or reduce the number of firecracker-related deaths and property damage this holiday season.

In addition to the festivities, the public is invited to support and cooperate with the PNP’s security standards. Any suspicious activities or crimes should be reported to the police via the national emergency hotline 911 or the Philippine National Police’s social media accounts, @pnppio for Twitter, or the official account of the Philippine National Police on Facebook, as well as the E-sumbong hotline numbers 09178475757/09191601752.

Meanwhile, Chief of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Maj. Gen. Vicente Danao has ordered the preparation of relief supplies and food banks for victims of the worst-affected areas in the Visayas and Mindanao.
