NCRPO, walang ilalagay na checkpoint sa Metro Manila borders sa ilalim ng Alert Level 3

Robie de Guzman   •   January 4, 2022

MANILA, Philippines – Hindi pa rin maglalagay ng checkpoint ang National Capital Region Police Office papasok at palabas ng Metro Manila sa ilalim ng COVID-19 Alert Level 3.

Ngunit sinabi ni NCRPO Director PMGen. Vicente Danao Jr., magpapatupad sila ng mahigpit na pagbabantay sa pagsunod sa minimum public health standards, lalo na sa mga matataong lugar.

“Yung alert level 3 kasi wala pang checkpoint yan e, pero that is depend purely on the areas of concern, for example sa isang barangay may isang pook dyan na talagang subject for granular lockdown,” ani Danao.

“Itong alert level 3 ay okey pa naman, hindi pa ganoon kahigpit pero kapag umabot tayo ng 4 and 5, yung 4 and 5 kasi ang category nyan… ay yung ECQ noong una,” dagdag pa niya.

Sa halip, maghihigpit aniya ang NCRPO sa pagbabantay sa pagsunod sa minimum public health standard lalo na sa mga matataong lugar.

“Pati ba naman face mask ay kailangan pa ring pagsabihan ka? Dapat naman automatic kasama yan, may mga tao na matitigas ang ulo,” ani Danao.

Kaugnay nito, inatasan na ni Danao ang kanyang mga tauhan na makipagugnayan sa mga lokal na pamahalaan at mga mall managers para sa mahigpit na implementasyon ng health protocols.

Ang Metro Manila ay nasa ilalim ng COVID-19 Alert Level 3 hanggang Enero 15.  (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)

MANILA, Philippines — Muling nagpaalala ang pulisya sa publiko na nananatiling bawal ang pagpapaputok kasabay ng pagpapalit ng taon.

Ayon sa National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), mga pailaw o pyrotechnics display lamang ang papayagan lalo na sa Metro Manila.

“Paalala po sa lahat na may firecracker ban, na mahigpit pong ipinagbabawal ang lahat ng uri ng firecrackers sa buong NCR. Only pyrotechnics are allowed sa mga designated areas ng kani-kanyang LGU,” ang paalala ni NCRPO director Police Major General Vicente Danao Jr.

Una nang naglabas ang Philippine National Police (PNP) ng listahan ng mga ipinagbabawal na paputok gaya ng mga sumusunod:

  • Watusi
  • Piccolo
  • Poppop
  • Five star
  • Pla pla
  • Lolo thunder
  • Giant whistle bomb
  • Giant bawling
  • Atomic bomb
  • Atomic triangle
  • Large size Judas belt
  • Goodbye De Lima
  • Hello Columbia
  • Goodbye Napoles
  • Super Yolanda
  • Mother rockets
  • Kwiton
  • Super lolo
  • Goodbye bading
  • Goodbye Philippines
  • Bin laden
  • Coke in can
  • Pillbox
  • Boga
  • Kabasi

Babala ni Danao, huhulihin nila ang sinumang lalabag sa firecracker ban. Ang parusa ay depende aniya sa kung ano ang nakasaad sa ordinansa ng lokal na pamahalaang nakakasakop dito.

Aniya, magpapatrolya ang mga pulis sa bawat sulok ng Metro Manila upang masegurong walang lalabag sa panuntunang ito.

“Karamihan po ng mga mayors ay mahigpit pong ipinagbabawal ang pagbenta at paggamit ng firecrackers sa buong Kamaynilaan,” ani Danao. (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)

Increased police visibility ordered in NCR public areas

Robie de Guzman   •   October 19, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Guillermo Eleazar on Tuesday said he has ordered all unit commanders in the National Capital Region (NCR) to increase police visibility in public areas following the downgrading of the COVID-19 Alert Level in the region.

In a statement, Eleazar said the directive was in response to the Department of Health’s (DOH) appeal for the continued implementation of the public health protocols after a number of people flocked to malls, churches, and other areas during the first weekend of placing NCR under Alert Level 3.

It was also in compliance with the order of Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año on the matter, he added.

“Nauunawaan namin ang pagkabahala ng ating mga kasamahan sa Department of Health at sa medical community patungkol sa mga report na ipinakita kung saan nagdagsaan ang mga tao sa mga pasyalan, malls at iba pang mga lugar noong nakaraang weekend,” Eleazar said.

DOH officials and some health experts earlier expressed concerns over what they describe was an apparent complacency on the part of the public when they go out of their homes to take advantage of the easing of restrictions in the metropolis.

In some parks and churches, it was apparent that some people failed to observe the protocols for their safety despite repeated appeals from the marshals.

“Kasama sa aking kautusan ang coordination sa ating mga LGUs sa Metro Manila upang maayos na maipatupad ang minimum public health safety protocols at ibang pang mga restriction na ipapatupad sa NCR,” Eleazar said.

While he welcomed the easing of restrictions in the capital region, the PNP chief said the public should remain vigilant and compliant to the health and safety protocols set by the government against COVID-19.

“Natutuwa kami sa PNP na kahit paano ay bumabalik na sa normal ang sitwasyon sa ating bansa subalit hindi dapat maging dahilan ito para tayo ay maging kampante at balewalain ang health safety protocols dahil kung hindi, ang panandaliang kaligayahan na ating nararamdaman ngayon ay mauuwi na naman sa matagal na lockdown,” he added.

The NCR will be under Alert Level 3 until October 31.

The national government has also expanded the implementation of the COVID-19 Alert Level System to some areas in the country beginning Oct. 20.
