PNP Ready for Labor Day Rites, Movements; 'No Permit, No Rally' Rule Is in Effect - De Leon


Byline: ELENA L. ABEN

The Philippine National Police (PNP), headed by Director General Hermogenes Ebdane Jr., announced yesterday that its 17,000-strong Metro Manila police is ready for the commemoration of Labor Day, including the mass actions expected to be staged by labor and political organizations all over the metropolis.

Some 400 new members of the NCRPO, who have recently concluded their six-month training, will be dispatched for CDM chores during the event.

The NCRPO is currently coordinating with the Armed Forces of the Philippine-National Capital Region Command (AFP-NCRC) for the deployment of at least two battalions to be placed on stand-by as well as Police Regional Offices 1, 3, and 4 to facilitate the deployment of augmentation units should the need arise. …
