OLIVAS, Pam­panga— - Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice III (PRO-3) Di­rec­tor PCSupt. Amador V. Cor­pus dis­closed yes­ter­day that el­e­ments of the Cen­tral Lu­zon po­lice force will now fo­cus on street crimes and tan­dem rid­ers per­pe­trat­ing var­i­ous forms of crim­i­nal­i­ties.

This, Cor­pus said, af­ter the is­suance of a mem­o­ran­dum from Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte di­rect­ing the Philip­pine Drug en­force­ment Agency (PDEA) as the sole agency to con­duct anti-il­le­gal drug op­er­a­tions as tasked un­der the anti-drug law and man­dat­ing other law en­force­ment agen­cies to de­fer to PDEA all drug-re­lated cases.

He said that the en­tire Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice (PNP) in­clud­ing PRO-3 will con­tinue to con­cen­trate on its law en­force­ment ac­tiv­i­ties es­pe­cially in de­creas­ing street crimes as this is where its man­dated tasks of en­sur­ing peace and or­der and keep­ing the com­mu­ni­ties safe are fo­cused.

Po­lice Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Ron­ald Dela Rosa gave his di­rec­tives on putting a stop, if not triple ef­forts to re­duce the oc­cur­rence of shoot­ing in­ci­dents per­pe­trated by Rid­ing in Tan­dem (RIT)/ Mo­tor­cy­cle Rid­ing Crim­i­nals (MRC) as this is con­sid­ered to be one of the ma­jor street crimes that de­stroys the rep­u­ta­tion and cred­i­bil­ity of the PNP, added Cor­pus.

All PNP Drug En­force­ment Units down to po­lice sta­tions are now dis­solved while the PNP Drug En­force­ment Group will only be lim­ited to in­tel­li­gence gath­er­ing and con­sol­i­da­tion af­ter which, re­ports will im­me­di­ately be sub­mit­ted to PDEA. Also, all drug-re­lated cases un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion shall be turned-over to PDEA. CITY

OF SAN FER­NANDO---The en­tire Cen­tral Lu­zon Po­lice force has been put on full alert sta­tus ef­fec­tive 12:00 noon of Oc­to­ber 13 in time for the trans­port strike slated on Oc­to­ber 16 and 17 and the 11th As­so­ci­a­tion of South­east Asian Na­tions (Asean) De­fense Min­is­ters Meet­ing (ADMM) on Oc­to­ber 24 to 25 at Clark Freeport.

Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice III Di­rec­tor PCSupt. Amador V. Cor­pus said he odered for the full alert sta­tus to thwart any pos­si­ble threats by ter­ror­ist groups who will

take ad­van­tage of the strike and ADMM to dis­rupt peace and or­der in Cen­tral Lu­zon.

“The full alert sta­tus was raised and I have di­rected all unit com­man­ders within Re­gion III to strengthen tar­get hard­en­ing on all vi­tal in­stal­la­tions, eco­nomic key points as well as places of con­ver­gences and en­sure high state of op­er­a­tional readi­ness to thwart any hos­tile ac­tion that may be launched by ter­ror groups,” said Cor­pus.

“Also, all passes of Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice (PNP) per­son­nel are can­celled and they are di­rected to re­main in­tact in their re­spec­tive units since strict ac­count­ing of per­son­nel is con­ducted,” he added.

For the ADMM, PNP per­son­nel will al­ready be de­ployed as early as Oc­to­ber 18 within the sum­mit venues and ar­eas where the del­e­gates will be bil­leted to en­sure their safety and se­cu­rity.
