Latest News Philippines: Cops to strictly enforce ordinances, deal with bullies – Journal.com.ph:
PHILIPPINE National Police chief Director General Alan LM Purisima yesterday ordered all concerned police commanders to address bullying inside and outside school premises in coordination with school authorities as regular classes resume next week.
The PNP chief also ordered his ground officials to coordinate with concerned local government units their strict implementation of the zoning ordinance prohibiting the existence of computer shops, billiards establishment and other distractive recreation facilities including those serving liquor and selling cigarettes near the school perimeter.
“We will be doing all of this to ensure the safety and security of the students which is one of our primordial concerns,” Purisima said.
The PNP has organized security coverage in different schools, campus, and universities particularly in Metro Manila and other urban cities where huge volume of students are expected to converge in the first to second week of June.
All 17 Police Regional Offices have been told to organize teams in all police stations to conduct mobile and foot patrols along major routes and highways leading to all learning institutions and within the immediate vicinity of school premises to ensure public safety.
“We also would like to warn the public, especially the students to be more vigilant while going to school particularly on public utility jeepneys, bus, and trains where criminals could take advantage. Commuters should be mindful and secure their belongings at all times. In addition, parents should always keep their eyes on their children while going and leaving school premises,” Purisima said.
A Police Assistance Desks (PAD) will also be established near major school campuses and clustered schools nationwide in coordination with school authorities and their security forces, and barangay force multipliers.
Purisima called on the public to immediately seek the attention of the nearest PAD or report to the PNP hotlines I-Text Mo Kay TSIP 0917-8475757 and PNP Txt 2920 any unnecessary actions or suspicious person or groups in their surroundings.
