Police Director Oscar Albayalde together with his men in NCRPO inspected the public places and malls to ensure the safety of the public.

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) wants to ensure the safety and security of the public this holiday season.

National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Oscar Albayalde made rounds in crowded areas in Metro Manila, Thursday, to also ensure the sufficient number of deployed policemen.

The NCRPO deployed 9,500 policemen across Metro Manila.

The training of 200 Police Officers 1 has been temporarily suspended to augment to the number of policemen deployed in crowded areas.

They will man Metro Manila to prevent individuals from firing their guns during the New Year revelry and arrest those who would do so.

Even cops on floating status will also be deployed.

“Habang kami nagtatrabaho, sila ang sarap ng buhay nila kung nandoon lang sila sa headquarters. So we might as well use them, kasi agrabyado ang gobyerno na sila sumusweldo at nandoon lang sila sa headquarters,” said Albayalde.

(While we are working, they are resting at the headquarters. We might as well use them because the government is at a disadvantage if they are getting their salaries but they are just at the headquarters.)

The PNP wants to ensure the proper implementation of security measures this holiday season, the time of the year when people are crowding into malls and markets.

According to Albayalde, the PNP is on a full alert 24/hours a day to man the public places.

The police have not monitored any threats to the security of the public from terrorists or rebel groups.

People are expected to flock to public markets tomorrow. In Divisoria, police are on full guard.

“Yung pupunta po dito yung mga mamimili tsaka mamamasyal, pinapayuhan po namin na as much as possible not to wear any valuables na. Itago nila yung mamahaling mga alahas nila mga relo mga bag at kung ano mang gamit including mga cellphones,” said MPD Director PCSupt. Joel Coronel.

“Huwag natin bigyan ng pagkakataon ang masasamang loob na mga shop lifters, pick pockets at tsaka mga snatchers na they will become prey or victims to them,” he added.

(Consumers who will come here, we advise you not wear any valuables as much as possible. Keep your expensive pieces of jewelry, such as watches, and even their bags, and cell phones, out of sight. Let’s not give thieves the chance to commit crimes. Do not fall prey or become their victims.)

The Manila Police District (MPD) has recorded 14 cases of petty crimes in Divisoria since December 1.  All the suspects have been arrested.

The PNP also deployed more cops to the bus terminal for the security of passengers.

Albayalde reminded policemen to properly perform their duties. He also warns cops who are just texting and chatting with each other while on duty. According to the NCRPO chief, he will not hesitate to fire cops who will not properly perform their tasks.

PNP, may 2 buwang palugit sa pagpaparehistro ng expired na lisensya ng baril

Robie de Guzman   •   June 1, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Posibleng magbigay ng dalawang buwang palugit ang Philippine National Police (PNP) para sa pagpaparehistro ng mga lisensya ng baril na nag-expire mula March 17 hanggang May 31 dahil sa community quarantine kaugnay ng novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Ayon kay PNP chief General Archie Gamboa, wala ring ipapataw na penalty sa mga nag-expire na firearm licenses sa mga nabanggit na buwan.

“A month or two, we will recalibrate how fast also we can process kasi baka matambakan kami, sabihin namin mag renew kayo dapat within one month e hindi naman namin kaya ang workload so we have to revisit how many licenses have actually expired and what will be our rate in processing per day,” ani Gamboa.

Ayon sa hepe ng pambansang pulisya, sa June 4 na sisimulan ang processing ng aplikasyon at registration para sa lisensya ng baril kasabay ng muling pagbubukas ng frontline administrative functions at regulatory services ng PNP.

Maaaring iproseso ang aplikasyon para rito sa Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO), Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agencies (SOSIA), One-Stop-Shop Office (OSS) and Regional Civil Security Units (RCSU) ng PNP.

Ngunit paalala ni Gamboa, by appointment ang gagawin upang malimitahan ang bilang ng aplikasyon kada araw.

“We will devise scheduling so that we can control the population in any of the different offices of the PNP… Kasi hindi naman kami exempted. We have to observe yung social distancing at mass gathering under GCQ (general community quarantine),” ani Gamboa.

Sa gate pa lang ng Camp Crame, kailangang mag-fill out ang aplikante ng contact tracing form na papipirmahan sa nakausap na tauhan ng PNP.

Iiwanan ito sa gate bago lumabas ng kampo.

Paliwanag ni Gamboa, layunin nito ang mapabilis ang contact tracing sakaling may magpositibo sa COVID-19. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)

Una nang sinabi ng PNP na ang Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) facility nito ay sinertipikahan ng Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) ng DOH bilang isang independent testing center.

Pansamantala itong ipu-puwesto sa PNP Crime Laboratory sa Camp Crame habang hindi pa tapos ang 84-square meter na pasilidad sa likod ng PNP Health Service.

Ayon kay Banac, prayoridad sa testing ang pulis na dumu-duty sa quarantine checkpoints at nagpapatupad ng seguridad sa Metro Manila.

Sa huling tala ng PNP Health Service, umabot na sa 263 ang bilang ng mga pulis na nag-positibo sa coronavirus disease.

Nasa 777 probable at 575 suspect cases naman ang binabantayan sa ngayon. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)

NCRPO seizes shabu worth P81.6-M in Taguig City

Maris Federez   •   May 24, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) has recorded one of the biggest amounts of methamphetamine hydrochloride, commonly known as “shabu”, confiscated by local police during an anti-illegal drug operation on Friday night, May 22, along C6 Road in Lower Bicutan, Taguig City.

The combined anti-illegal drug efforts of the Regional Intelligence Division/Regional Special Operations Unit- NCRPO, Regional Drug Enforcement Agency, District Intelligence Division- Southern Police District and Taguig City Police Station together with Philippine National Police- Drug Enforcement Group Special Operations Unit 4, all under the leadership of PMGen. Debold Sinas resulted in an armed encounter against the two (2) armed suspects.

The NCRPO chief identified the suspects as Ryan Labandaria and Ervyn Querubin.

The arrest was made through a buy-bust operation wherein a police operative acted as a poseur buyer.

The suspects, however, noticed that they were dealing with the police and a scuffle ensued. The suspects then fled the scene on board a black Nissan Navarra with the police on their tail.

The police said the suspects were subsequently apprehended and the operatives yielded twelve (12) large packs of dangerous drugs wrapped in Chinese Tea Bag packaging with an estimated weight of more or less 12 Kilograms of suspected shabu, and with an estimated DDB Value of Php 81.6-million.

Aside from the drugs, the police were also able to confiscate the following:

  • one .45 caliber pistol with one magazine loaded with six (6) live ammunitions;
  • one KG9 sub machine gun with one live ammunition for chamber load inserted with banana type magazine loaded with nine (9) live ammunitions; and,
  • one extra banana type magazine loaded with nine (9) live ammunitions

Police said an ambulance was called to bring the wounded suspects to hospital for medical treatment.

All evidence had also been brought to the RSOG-NCRPO for safekeeping, while the illegal drugs will be submitted to the Crime lab for examination.

Sinas, meanwhile, commended the operating teams for what the chief called a remarkable accomplishment of Team NCRPO’s war against illegal drugs.

“This accomplishment is reflective of Team NCRPO’s dedication and unwavering support of the marching order of the President and the Chief, PNP to cleanse the Metro from proliferation of illegal drugs,” Sinas said.

“With the largest amount of shabu busted by Team NCRPO so far this year, we have also minimized its possibility of destroying the lives and future of our fellowmen,” he added. — /mbmf
