PMGEN VICENTE D DANAO JR, RD, NCRPO spearheaded the Security Preparations and Deployment Plans for SONA 2021 together with
other senior Police Officers , units and agencies on July 21, 2021 at Camp PMGEN Tomas B Karingal, Quezon City.
“This is to guarantee that before, during and the aftermath of the SONA will go smoothly as planned since it will be more challenging than it was over the past few years due to the threat of the current health crisis.” Danao said.
A total of 15,000 personnel will be deployed to secure peace and order during the said event especially from those who will try to inflict harm or try to distrupt the peaceful and orderly conduct of the SONA 2021.
The NCRPO under the leadership of RD DANAO have contingency plans ready if ever there will be incident that may happen. Which will focus mainly on the security aspect in and out of the Congress. Dialogue has also been conducted with the different community leaders, stakeholders and civil society leaders.
According to the RD NCRPO “mayroon din naman tayong tinatawag na freedom of expression pero siyempre let us always take consideration of the IATF rules because it can be a cause of wide spreaders lalo na ngayon with DELTA variant, na very dangerous. Kaya kami po ay nakikiusap sa lahat na kung wala naman kayong ibang gagawin, siguro po magstay at home na lang. Lalong lalo na ngayon, baka magkahawaan pa tayo lalo niyan.”
He added “we are also deploying the use of body-worn camera para po mamonitor natin yung lahat ng movement lalong lalo na yung sa security aspect. Mas makikita natin yung movement ng mga tao at mas matututukan natin yung placement ng kanilang deployment. This is to ensure na hindi tayo malulusutan ng any suspicious person na maaaring gumawa ng kalokohan.”###
