so­cial se­cu­rity is pro­tected. We need the sup­port of the po­lice force as we strongly ad­min­is­ter our na­tion­wide cam­paign to in­crease con­tri­bu­tion col­lec­tion and pro­mote com­pli­ance to the So­cial Se­cu­rity Law by fil­ing charges and serv­ing war­rants to these em­ploy­ers who run away from their obli­ga­tions to SSS and their em­ploy­ees,” Dooc added.

This is not the first time that SSS and PNP are work­ing close to­gether as the pen­sion fund and PNP have on­go­ing part­ner­ships un­der the pro­grams Op­er­a­tion Tokhang and Run Af­ter Con­tri­bu­tion Evaders, where they serve war­rants against erring em­ploy­ers and post show cause or­ders in non-com­pli­ant es­tab­lish­ments, re­spec­tively.

“As of Novem­ber 6, there were al­ready 102 em­ploy­ers sub­jected to RACE con­ducted in 10 re­gional ar­eas, namely, Lipa City, Dagu­pan City, El Nido, Palawan, Davao City, Gen­eral San­tos City, Ba­colod City, Pa­ga­dian City, Laoag City, Naga City and Bu­tuan City. This has been part of our re­gional cam­paign as part of our ag­gres­sive ef­forts in col­lec­tion con­tri­bu­tion, pro­mot­ing com­pli­ance and en­sur­ing higher cov­er­age of em­ploy­ees,” Dooc said.

The event also high­lighted the turn-over of 762 di­rec­tional sig­nages to PNP from SSS. A Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing was signed last year be­tween

the two agen­cies that led to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of Stan­dard­ized Po­lice Di­rec­tional Sig­nages that aims to pro­mote a safe, se­cured, or­derly and peace­ful com­mu­nity.

Based on the MOU, the SSS is in-charge of the pro­duc­tion of the uni­form sig­nages while the PNP will do the in­stal­la­tion in co­or­di­na­tion with lo­cal gov­ern­ment units na­tion­wide.

Last De­cem­ber 12, 2017, the PNP and SSS ini­tially in­stalled sig­nages in se­lected places in Que­zon City and San Juan.
