“Our police force will continue to be aggressive and intelligence-driven against criminal gangs, terrorists, and lawless elements as we intensify our focused police operations to address threats and violence,” Albayalde said.
At the same time, the PNP will field a total of 120,000 personnel in preparation for the security and safety plans as schools classes will open on June 3, Monday.
“Along these efforts, we set our plans with enough number of police force to be deployed to launch mobile and foot patrols along major routes and highways for the 2019 Balik Eskwela leading to all schools and other learning institutions,” he added.
PNP will establish Police Assistance Desks (PADs) in all school campuses and other learning institutions nationwide with the coordination of the Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education, school authorities, local government units, and barangay force multipliers.
Albayalde assured the public that the PNP is committed to provide security coverage for public safety services and institute various crime prevention operations, focusing on the Enhanced Managing Police Operations Strategy to maintain peace and order within and around the vicinity of schools.
Upon invitations by school authorities, the PNP may conduct inspection of dormitories and schools. Other police efforts are establishing task units to address bullying in schools, intelligence and information gathering against kidnappings in schools, presence of improvised explosive devices, and other efforts against threats as feared by the public.
