The National Capital Region Police Office will be dispatching more than 10,000 policemen this coming holiday season.
According to Police Dir. Oscar Albayalde, the deployment of the said policemen will start on the night of Dec. 15, in time for the start of the “simbang gabi” on Dec. 16.
Albayalde said that his men will focus on safeguarding malls, commercial centers, terminals, MRT-LRT, public markets and churches.
The said number is enough to cover Metro Manila, and there is no need to augment the force from different provinces.
Albayalde added that up to now, they have yet to receive any threats in the National Capital Region for the upcoming holidays.
