The policeman in your neighborhood is all set to serve and protect everybody for the Halloween and All Saints’ Day Holidays this weekend in Metro Manila.
National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) spokesperson Chief Insp. Kimberly Molitas said this over DZRH News through Neil Ocampo’s “Arangkada Balita.” She said they wanted to make sure everyone is safe and secure where ever they go.
“We ask the public to make sure their homes are secured when they are out in the cemeteries,” Molitas said.
“We have more than enough officers to make sure the security of our fellow men. Their vacation leaves are cancelled so there will be enough manpower,” Molitas said.
She said NCRPO headed by its director Chief Supt. Joel Pagdilao has readied measures to secure 98 private and public cemeteries in Metro Manila during the All Saints’ Day observance on Sunday, November 1.
Under the NCRPO’s Oplan Ligtas Undas, vehicles would be banned from cemeteries while the public was urged to refrain from bringing firearms, deadly weapons and liquor while visiting their departed loved ones.
Pagdilao directed Metro Manila’s five district directors and 38 station commanders to strictly implement their security deployment on the cemeteries to ensure the safety of Metro Manilans during the occasion.
NCRPO said it will also secure places frequented by the public like the Light Railway Transit and Metro Rail Transit stations, bus terminals, airports, seaports and other economic key points or vital installations.
Molitas said NCRPO will have Public assistance desks (PADs) set up in every cemetery in Metro Manila, except for the Manila Memorial Park, which would have three PADs, and the Manila North Cemetery and Manila South Cemetery with two each.
