Central Luzon cops under full alert for Duterte’s SONA

The entire Central Luzon Police force has been placed on full alert status in line with the 3rd State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday, July 23, an official said Saturday.

Police Regional Office 3 Director Chief Supt. Amador V. Corpus said the full alert status was raised starting 6:00 am, July 21.

“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 though there are no monitored threat in the region as of the moment,” he said.

Corpus said all the police personnel were directed to remain intact in their respective units since strict accounting of personnel would be conducted even at the Regional Headquarters.

The Philippine National Police would remain in full alert status pending the outcome of Monday’s national event, he added.
