Enforce no plate, no travel policy--NCRPO chief

NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION POLICE OFFICE (NCRPO) chief Director Roberto Rosales has ordered the heads of the different police districts in Metro Manila to strictly enforce the ?no plate, no travel? policy to prevent criminals from operating during Holy Week.

In a directive, Rosales said the enforcement of the policy would boost the election gun ban being implemented by the Philippine National Police nationwide.

?We have lessened criminals? capability to fight by ensuring that only authorized law enforcement agents carry firearms. Now, we must intensify our efforts to restrict their movements by denying them the opportunity to use vehicles that we cannot associate with their identity,? Rosales said in a statement yesterday.

Under the no plate, no travel policy, policemen can flag down and impound all vehicles traveling without license plates.

According to Rosales, since he assumed his post more than a year ago, the number of car theft cases have gone down from a daily average of four to six vehicles to only one to two vehicles.

Despite this, he said he wants all police units under his jurisdiction to intensify their operations against vehicle thieves to make the metropolis car theft-free.

Based on NCRPO records, most of the syndicates or individuals involved in killings, cases of robbery, abduction and hijacking used stolen vehicles to prevent authorities from identifying them.

Rosales, meanwhile, reminded motorists that license plates issued by the Land Transportation Office should not be removed, replaced or transferred to another vehicle unless allowed by the law.

At the same time, he ordered his men to seize unauthorized license plates, including expired commemorative plates which were not properly displayed, and to file charges against drivers using these plates.

Rosales also called on all police commanders to be more vigilant, especially when conducting checkpoints, to prevent criminals from striking during the Lenten Season.
