PNP-HPG spokesper­son El­iz­a­beth Ve­lasquez said 79 po­lice per­son­nel will be in-charge of the on-road se­cu­rity of the can­di­dates.

“Ang magig­ing role namin sa Miss Uni­verse is traf­fic man­age­ment and es­cort sa con­voy ng Miss Uni­verse. Bale 79 per­son­nel na [ang] nakade­ploy ngayon kasi maram­ing places of en­gage­ment. Ku­muha tayo ng mga per­son­nel from that re­spec­tive units para kada punta ng can­di­dates doon sa mga places na iyon ay merong nakata­laga na man­gan­galaga,” she said.

Pre-coronation night ac­tiv­i­ties for the Miss Uni­verse pageant will start next week.

Aside from the Metro Manila, can­di­dates are also set to visit Vi­gan, Baguio, Batan­gas, Palawan, Bo­ra­cay, Cebu and Davao.

Ve­lasquez said the plan­ning team is still work­ing on the des­ig­nated routes the Miss Uni­verse con­voy will uti­lize to en­sure smooth travel.

“May mga spe­cial routes tayo (na in­aayos). May mga ruta na tinalaga para daanan ng con­voy,” said Ve­lasquez, adding that there will be in­stances that the Miss Uni­verse con­voy will pass through the Edsa, the coun­try’s busiest high­way.
