Police Regional Office 3 (PRO3) director Brigadier General Matthew P. Baccay said that the Central Luzon cops will continuously conduct intelligence monitoring and gathering to ensure preparedness in case of any eventuality that might occur during said historical event.

“We are also anticipating street protests during the inauguration and to our kababayans, the police respect your right to voice your concerns but make sure that it is within the bounds of the law and you are in a proper venue with secured permit when you conduct your protests and demonstrations,” said Baccay.

Meanwhile, the continuous joint efforts of the Regional Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (RTF-ELCAC) and police persistent anti-terrorism campaign resulted in the voluntary surrender of 14 (Communist Terrorist Group) CTG sympathizers operating in the area of Nueva Ecija on June 17.

Joint operating troops of 2nd Platoon 2nd Provincial Mobile Force Company (PMFC), Nueva Ecija Police Provincial Office (NEPPO) and other concerned agencies facilitated the withdrawal of support of 14 CTG sympathizers from Liga ng Manggagawang Bukid (LMB) and Alyansang Mangbubukid sa Gitnang Luzon.

Through the continuous Local Peace Engagement activities of the DILG being carried out by the Philippine National Police and the Philippine Army such as information dissemination and situational interview, more sympathizers and supporters are made aware of the government’s programs and opportunity to change their lives to correct the mistakes they have committed due to deception.
