CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga — Central Luzon police director Chief Supt. Amador V. Corpus has ordered his men to be on full alert status in line with Monday’s 3rd State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Duterte.
Corpus said the full alert status had been in effect since 6 a.m. Saturday.
“I have directed all unit commanders within Region 3 to strengthen target hardening on all vital installations, economic key points as well as places of convergences and ensure high state of operational readiness to thwart any hostile action that may be launched by terror groups as President Duterte delivers his 3rd SONA on July 23,” the regional director said.
“I have also ordered all PNP personnel to remain intact in their respective units since strict accounting of personnel is conducted even here at the Regional Headquarters,” he added.
To date, Corpus said there is no monitored threat in the region.
He said the entire police force will remain in full alert status pending the outcome of Monday’s national event.
