In a statement, the PNP said Director General Ricardo Marquez has ordered the National Capital Region Police Office for the overall security, peace and order and emergency preparedness all throughout Wurtzbach’s activities.
The PNP said a multi-agency coordinating center and police assistance desks will be established “in all areas of engagement and billeting hotels.”
“The PNP appeals for public’s cooperation for a peaceful and orderly homecoming for the country’s pride,” the statement read.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority on Thursday released Wurtzbach’s parade route on Jan. 25, which will start at 2 p.m.
Among the roads and establishments that will be affected by the beauty queen’s activities include Hotel Sofitel to V. Sotto and Jalandoni, Bukaneg, Roxas Boulevard, Padre Burgos, N. Lopez, A. Villegas to Taft Avenue, Quirino Avenue, Buendia and Ayala Avenues, the Makati Fire Station, Rustan’s Makati, and Novo Hotel along Edsa.
