MANILA, May 29 – The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) said Saturday it is ready to secure teachers and students in Quezon City when schoolyear 2010-2011 opens on June 15 in all levels.

QCPD director Chief Supt. Benjardi H. Mantele said QCPD has laid its security and anti-criminality measures for the upcoming opening of classes for both public and private schools in Quezon City.

“Everything is green for the part of Quezon City policemen to ensure primarily the safety and security of students, faculty and personnel and the maintenance of peace and order including the smooth flow of traffic leading to and from the schools as the classes begin,” Mantele said.

Dubbed “Balik Eskwela 2010”, the QCPD has linked with the public and private school officials for the mapped-out security preparations by maximizing deployment of policemen and other force multipliers to thwart criminals of their evil intentions and prevent the occurrence of any untoward incident.

Police Assistance Desks (PADS) will also be established at the vicinity of public elementary and secondary schools from June 6 to 25, 2010 and will be manned by policemen in partnership with our Barangay Peacekeeping Action Team (BPAT).

This is to give immediate solutions to issues and concerns that may arise during the start of classes, Mantele said.

Mantele also said that the QCPD disaster rescue preparedness is also being given priority in anticipation of the rainy season.

“We have policemen from the twelve police stations and from the District Public Safety Battalion (DPSB) who have undergone special course on search and rescue techniques with the use of pump and rubber boats and are ready to respond anytime,” he said.

The traffic police enforcers, together with personnel from the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS), would also be strategically deployed to ensure uninterrupted flow of traffic.

Mantele also called on the public to be extra vigilant against criminals. (PNA) RMA/JCA
