MANILA, Philippines – Around 190,000 members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) force will be deployed as the country observes UNDAS 2019 throughout the country starting Monday, 28 October 2019 to 03 November 2019.

According to officer-in-charge Lieutenant General Archie Francisco Gamboa, the PNP do not see any risk for the public at cemeteries but he said the PNP has to deploy cops for “visibility” and crime prevention.

Putting the cops on full alert ensures that the on-duty-officers would have to work extra hours to comply with the “intensified” intelligence operations, checkpoints, and country-wide searches he said.

“The PNP will deploy a total of 35,618 cops appointed to secure the cemeteries while the rest of the cops would be deployed in transport hubs, medical outposts, traffic checkpoints and as standby emergency response teams.”

About 99,716 civilians were also deployed as the “force multipliers” or volunteers who would help and assist in maintaining the public order and in responding to emergencies. (Gelica Paulo/IAMIGO/CNS)
