QCPD to deploy 3,000 cops for school opening
The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) will deploy more or less 3,000 police personnel for the opening of classes in Quezon City on Monday.
Chief Supt. Richard A. Albano, QCPD district director, assured the public that the police district is ready to secure the safety of the people in the area.
Albano said the QCPD through its 12 police stations and other operating units will maximize the deployment of policemen and traffic enforcers especially near schools, jeep and bus stops and public utility transport terminals.
Tactical Motorcycle Riders (TMRs) and mobile patrol crew will also be strategically deployed especially in identified crime-prone areas to respond to reports for police assistance.
According to the QCPD’s Public Information Office (PIO), there are 300 public and private elementary, high schools and colleges located in Quezon City.
Albano said the QCPD has been coordinating with the Quezon City Peace and Order Council, Department of Education (DepEd), school officials, and other concerned local units of Quezon City.
“We will see to it that traffic woes, illegal vendors, petty crimes like pickpocket, cellphone or jewelry robbery and other similar street crimes will be address,” Albano said.
Albano also said that the QCPD will also establish Police Assistance Centers (PACs) in schools, bus and jeepney stops for the public to report any untoward incidents
