Prior to BBM’s inauguration, NCRPO intensifies security measures.

Intensified security measures will be in place for Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s inauguration on June 30 at the National Museum of the Philippines, according to the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) on Thursday.

Maj. Gen. Felipe Natividad, the head of the NCRPO, made the remark after Jonathan Malaya, the spokesperson for the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict and an undersecretary of interior and local government, claimed that former members of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front were planning to disrupt the event and cast doubt on the incoming administration.

“We at NCRPO condemn this attempt by communist organizations to sully the next inauguration’s peace and order. In a communiqué, Natividad stated that “We will offer the required security and safety procedures to assure the effective conduct of the abovementioned occasion.”

15.213 personnel, including the Joint Task Force-National Capital Region, the Philippine Coast Guard, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), the Department of Health, and force multipliers, will be deployed throughout the inauguration, according to Natividad, and sufficient contingents will be on standby should the need arise.

To prevent potential lawbreakers from undertaking illegal acts, he has also directed increased police presence and constant patrol operations surrounding the place of the inauguration.

“During the approaching inauguration of our new president, our police are prepared to ensure security and uphold calm and order. We will make sure that the program is unaffected by whatever these radical organizations have in mind. I also call for the public’s help in remaining vigilant and refusing to fall prey to these organizations’ nefarious plans, he added.

Maj. Gen. Valeriano de Leon, director of operations for the PNP, stated that they are currently working with the MMDA and the Manila municipal government to reroute traffic near the museum.

“We are aware of how congested the roads in this area are. In order to reduce the annoyance caused to drivers and the general public during commutes, we are continually working in coordination with the MMDA and the Manila City LGU “Added he.

increased maritime patrols

As part of its preparation for Marcos’ inauguration, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) increased patrols throughout Manila Bay and the Pasig River.

PCG Commandant CG Admiral Artemio Abu directed security personnel from the PCG District National Capital Region – Central Luzon to “prepare accordingly and cooperate” with other personnel from the Philippine National Police, the Presidential Security Group, and the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

To make sure that we can maintain security and calm at the inauguration of our president-elect, Abu remarked, “We are mustering our security troops, K9 teams, and medical groups.”

300 people are scheduled to be deployed by the PCG for the event, with an additional 200 people available for potential force augmentation.
