PNP assures security for opening

Director General Oscar D. Albayalde, chief of the Philippine National Police, has ordered all police commanders across the country to ensure an orderly opening of classes today.

Albayalde said they have come up with “Ligtas Balik-Eskwela 2018,” a nationwide security and public safety plan, to ensure the peaceful opening of classes.

The plan also ensures the operational readiness of police units in responding to peace and order concerns, including threats from criminal elements, in the opening of classes.

“I have issued the Operational Guidelines for Ligtas Balik-Eskwela 2018 that mobilizes all PNP Regional Offices and National Support Units to perform specific tasks and coordinating instructions to implement the nationwide security and public safety plan,” said Albayalde.

“The operational guidelines is also aimed at ensuring the availability and operational readiness of PNP units, personnel and resources for security and public safety operations in support of the Department of Education,” said Albayalde. (Aaron B. Recuenco)
