CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga — With barely 2 days before the fourth State of the Nation Address of President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday (July 22), Police Regional Office 3 is already geared up to ensure peace and order and public safety at Batasan, Quezon City as it will field 462 PNP personnel for Civil Disturbance Management (CDM) operation.

The 462 augmentation troops coming from the Regional Mobile Force Battalion, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, and Tarlac Police Provincial Offices will be on standby and ready on call starting today, July 19, 2019.

Aside from the augmentation troops to be sent out, Reactionary Standby Support composed of 350 PNP personnel from Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, and Zambales Police Provincial Offices as well as Angeles and Olongapo City 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-criminality and focused police operations are being undertaken by all police units within the region to prevent any eventualities during the said event.

According to PRO3 Regional Director P/Brig. Gen. Joel Napoleon M. Coronel has been sending augmentation troops during SONA and other national events as part of the overall security preparations of the PNP to guarantee that no eventualities may happen during said activities.

“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 4th 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,” Coronel added

Relatedly, the entire PNP will be placed under full alert status effective July 20, 2019, 8 a.m. and will remain in effect pending the outcome of Monday’s national event.
