The Philippine National Police (PNP) is adopting strict security measures in all police camps to ensure safety and protection against terrorists and lawless elements.

This was discussed during a command conference presided by Police Regional Office-9 Director Chief Supt. Elpidio Z. De Asis Jr. at Camp Abendan in Mercedes last Tuesday.

During the conference, De Asis reiterated a memorandum from Camp Crame on the implementation of the Philippine National Police Security Policy and the Letter of Instruction “Kalasag 2011” in which all government and private motorvehicles are required to apply for a pass card and sticker with the office of the Regional Intelligence Division so as for them to be able to enter police camps.

De Asis said the purpose adopting a pass card and sticker system is to ensure the security and protection of every command of the police in the region including the regional headquarters and provincial headquarters.

A vehicle having no pass card will not be allowed to enter any camp unless they will submit the license card for proper identity.  Also all police personnel are given 10 days to register with the PRO9- RID.
Meanwhile, De Asis directed all PNP provincial and city directors and chiefs of police in the region to adopt security measures and plans with the military school officials and local leaders as school opening is fast approaching.

The PNP’s “Oplan Balik Paaralan” is intended to ensure the safety and security of students and schools in the region.

Police commanders have been directed to conduct random patrols, to assign policemen in every entrance and exit of schools, to put up police visibility in all school areas and add more checkpoints in all areas where they are needed.

“The police are always ready to answer any call of duty,” De Asis said. — Allen Abastillas
