PHILIPPINES — PNP Training Service Director Police Chief Superintendent John Sosito is delighted with the all-out support of Kuya Daniel Razon to the advocacies of Chief PNP Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa.

UNTV has partnered with the Philippine National Police in holding a two-day enhancement seminar in Morong Star Beach Resort and Hotel in Bataan.

The event aims at improving the leadership skills of the police officers for better public service.

“Ito’y sponsor ng UNTV kaya kami nagpapasalamat. This is in consonance with the project of our chief PNP, the PNP leadership to go back to the basic regarding leadership of their law enforcers, plus the review on police operational procedures,” PNPTS Director PCSupt. John Q. Sosito said.

(UNTV sponsored our food and accommodation that’s why we are thankful. This is in consonance with the project of our chief PNP, the PNP leadership to go back to the basic regarding leadership of their law enforcers, plus the review on police operational procedures.)

Police Senior Inspector Juneil Perez from Cagayan Valley is one of the 50 police officers from Region 1, 2 and 3 who participated in the training. He says he has learned much from the event making his 14-hour travel to the venue worth it.

“Gagamitin din namin ito sa pag-uwi namin sa aming probinsya. Irere-echo din namin sa aming mga tao para sa ganon continuous yung learning natin.”

(We will also use this when we return to our province. We will teach what we have learned to our personnel so that there will be continuous learning.)

Atty. Emilie Delos Santos, a city prosecutor, explains the importance of the role of the police. She says how law enforcement and prosecution go hand in hand to attain justice.

“Kung anung ebidensya ang ipapasok ng pulis sa isang kaso na criminal case, yun ang gagamitin naming sa pagsasampa ng habla sa husgado at kung gaano kaganda ang ebidensya, makakuha kami ng conviction kung mahina ang ebidensiya, sa amin pa lang sasabihin namin walang probable cause.”

(Whatever evidence the police presents in a criminal case, that is what we will use in pressing charges before the court and however good the evidence is. We can get conviction if the evidence is weak. On our part, we can say whether there is no probable cause.)

For General Sosito, moral enhancement is important for the police to stay focused on their sworn duties to the nation.

“Sa law enforcers, ang isa sa pinaka-biblia namin ay ang law on criminal procedures plus rules on evidence so we really want to get a lecturer that is really well-verse of the subject matter base from the experience para matuto at magkapaliwanagan to strengthen, lalong maging magaling kapulisan natin.”

(Among the bibles of the law enforcers are the law on criminal procedures plus rules on evidence so we really want to get a lecturer that is really well-versed in the subject matter based from the experience so our police will learn and be enlightened, strengthened and improved.)

UNTV will continue to support the PNP to conduct this kind of enhancement seminar in the provinces of Aklan, Cebu, and General Santos City. — Bryan Evangelista | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines – Magsisimula na ngayong linggo ang operasyon ng sariling testing facility para sa novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) ng Philippine National Police (PNP).

Ayon kay PNP Spokesperson Police Brigadier General Bernard Banac, binigyan na ito ng license to operate ng Department of Health (DOH) noon pang May 22.

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)

PNP implements ‘modified checkpoints’ in EDSA to ease traffic

Aileen Cerrudo   •   May 20, 2020

The Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) has implemented ‘modified checkpoints’ along EDSA to ease traffic amid the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ).

According to HPG-National Capital Region (NCR) Chief PCol. Wilson Doromal, they had to remove the checkpoints along EDSA to make way for the Authorized Person Outside Residence (APOR) that will flock reopened establishments.

“Baka kami ang maging cause ng traffic kung maglalagay tayo ng checkpoint dito along EDSA (We might become the cause of traffic if we installed checkpoints along EDSA),” he said.

He also said that the PNP-HPG has mobile checkpoints or 40 motorcycle drivers that are randomly deployed to monitor motorists. This is part of their ‘Oplan Habol’ to check if motorists follow quarantine protocols.

“Oplan Habol, ibig sabihin pag nai-spottan natin ang sasakyan, halimbawa iyong sasakyan overloading, hahabulin ng mga motorcycle iyan sa EDSA (Oplan Habol, meaning once authorities spotted an overloading vehicle, the motorcycles would run after them along EDSA),” Doromal said.

Violators will be issued with a temporary operator’s permit and will have their license confiscated.

Meanwhile, authorities in EDSA checkpoints will be moved to streets around Metro Manila including Commonwealth, Katipunan, Quezon Avenue, C-5 Quirino, Marcos Highway, and Roxas Boulevard,

The said authorities would man the checkpoints for 2 to 4 hours before moving to another location. –AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)

PNP to require medical certificate from personnel, civilians prior to entering Camp Crame

Robie de Guzman   •   May 19, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) on Tuesday said it has stepped up the implementation of health and safety protocols in its headquarters in Camp Crame amid the continuing threat of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

In a Memorandum Order dated May 14, the PNP Headquarters Support Service (HSS) said that starting May 18, stricter measures will be implemented in all pedestrian and sentry gates in Camp Crame to prevent the spread of the dreaded disease.

The PNP HSS said that each personnel are given a QR Code, which identifies whether an individual has tested positive or negative for COVID-19 after undergoing a rapid test.

If a personnel does not have a QR code, a medical certificate or fit to work clearance issued by the Health Service may be presented prior to entering the PNP headquarters.

Meanwhile, civilians will be required to present a medical certificate which states that they are free from coronavirus infection.

In a separate directive issued by the PNP HSS on May 18, those who are not yet tested for COVID-19 will be required to present government-issued ID, quarantine pass and authorizes person outside residence (APOR) ID.

Without a medical certificate, civilians will be advised to proceed to the holding area and accomplish forms for health assessment and possible contact tracing.

PNP spokesperson Brigadier General Bernard Banac said these protocols are part of the biosafety measures being implemented under the modified enhanced community quarantine.

“Upang mapadali natin ang contact tracing pagkatapos ng kanilang pagpasok sa Kampo Crame at ito ay may form na yan ay ibibigay nila din sa mga tauhan natin sa gate,” Banac said.

Its implementation follows the imposition of a three-day lockdown on Camp Caringal, the headquarters of Quezon City Police District, and Eastern Police District headquarters last week after 37 of its personnel were infected with COVID-19.

Camp Crame was not among those placed on lockdown but it imposed more stringent measures to prevent the spread of the virus within its premises.

Banac, however, clarified that the ramped up implementation of health protocols is only applicable to those who are working inside the camp.

He also stressed that the camp remains closed to visitors.

“Ito po ay para lamang sa mga ng nagta-trabaho sa loob ng Kampo Crame at hindi po para sa general public,” he said. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Lea Ylagan)
