MANILA, Philippines —  More than 35,000 members of the police force will be deployed nationwide to ensure public safety during the All Souls’ and All Saints’ Day break or “Undas” season, the Philippine National Police (PNP) said Friday.

“Simula ngayong araw na ito, hanggang sa pagbabalik nila, yung mga umuuwi sa kani-kanilang mga lalawigan, so lahat ng  ating mga airports, seaports, at maging mga bus terminals ay may nakalaan po na mga security,” PNP spokesperson Brid. Gen. Bernard Banac said in a press briefing.

(Starting today until the time travelers arrive from their respective provinces, all our security personnel will be deployed at airports, seaports, and even our bus terminals.)

Banac added that aside from policemen, 99,716 “force multipliers” or volunteers will also be deployed in areas expected to be filled with travelers who are expected to go home to their provinces.

“Agahan po natin ang pagtungo sa mga bus terminals, airports and seaports dahil napakabigat po ng daloy ng trapiko at dagsa po ang pila,” Banac reminded travelers.
