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.

Following the directive of PNP Chief PGen. Camilo Cascolan, the Philippine National Police (PNP) conducted a surprise inspection at Camp Crame on Tuesday morning (September 22) to pursue cops who use unregistered, impounded, recovered, and carnapped cars.
