PRO3 deploys 300 cops for PBBM SONA

CAMP OLIVAS — A day before the second State of the Nation Address of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., the Police Regional Office 3 (PRO3) has deployed  nearly 300 PNP personnel for Civil Disturbance Management (CDM) operation.

The police force coming from the Regional Mobile Force Battalion, Bataan, Pampanga and Angeles Police Offices had been deployed since Sunday in Metro Manila.

Aside from the augmentation troops, Reactionary Standby Support composed of about 300 PNP personnel from the regional headquarters and other provincial police offices were also organized on stand-by in their respective units ready to be deployed on orders as the need arises.

Additionally, intensified anti-crime police operations are being undertaken by all police units within the region to prevent any eventualities as the government enforced the gun ban all over Central Luzon from 12:01am of July 24 until 12am of July 25.

PRO3 director Brig. Gen. Jose Hidalgo Jr. has been sending augmentation troops during SONA and other national events as part of the over-all security preparations of the PNP to ensure peace and order.

“Our personnel are reminded to observe “maximum tolerance” and to ensure they respect the human rights of protesters as they are again expected to hold rallies when the President delivers his 2ND  SONA. I have also ordered for the intensified conduct of checkpoint operations particularly along major thoroughfares to ensure the maintenance of peace and order during said event and guarantee the strict implementation of the 24-hr Gun Ban,” Hidalgo said.

President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s SONA coincided with the 3-day national transport strike led by transport group MANIBELA who opposes the transport modernization plan of the government. Other transport groups like STOP-Central Luzon did not join the strike.
