National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) director Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar assured the public on Sunday that police enforcers are prepared for the third State of the Nation Address (Sona) of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Eleazar said the police had coordinated with concerned agencies to ensure the safety of the public.

“Rest assured na ang ating kapulisan ay nakahanda (that our police officers are prepared). We have been coordinating with all concerned agencies, as well as the stakeholders and community leaders. Nakahanda po kami (We are ready) for all contingencies,” Eleazar said during a news forum.

He advised the public though to avoid areas where  protest rallies will be held as they may cause traffic jams on Monday.

“Ang suggestion po namin ay huwag na po kayong dumaan sa lugar na ito para hindi kayo madamay doon sa pag sikip ng daloy ng trapiko at hindi niyo maexperience itong sakripsyo na gagawin niyo just in case na mapunta kayo dito (Our suggestion is for people to avoid these places so they won’t get stuck in traffic),” the NCRPO chief said.

About 7,000 police personnel will be deployed to secure Duterte’s third Sona. /ee
