MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Maj. Gen. Rommel Marbil on Wednesday ordered enhanced police patrol operations across the country to further prevent crimes and build trust and rapport within communities.

Marbil said this directive is for all regional, provincial, city, and municipal police stations to enhance police visibility and ensure rapid response. 


“We are committed to making our communities safer by ensuring a strong police presence in public spaces. This initiative is designed to not only prevent crime but also to build trust and rapport with the communities we serve,” said Marbil in a statement.


Interior Secretary Benjamin Abalos Jr. said he supports Marbil’s directive.

“The safety and security of our citizens is our top priority. I commend the PNP for their commitment to enhancing police presence and ensuring swift response to incidents. This collaborative effort between the police and the community is essential in maintaining peace and order,” said Abalos.

Marbil also stressed the importance of proactive policing strategies to deter crime and enhance community safety. 

He also encouraged citizens to support the directive by reporting suspicious activities and giving feedback on the effectiveness of the police patrols. (Felice Nafarrete, intern)
