PNP raises Undas alert

The Philippine National Police on Sunday revealed that it will go on full alert at least three days before the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections slated on 30 October and maintain this alert until All Saints’ Day or Undas.

In an interview, PNP spokesperson Police Colonel Jean Fajardo said the PNP would prepare for both events next week, adding that they had enough manpower for both.

“We will do better than the recommendation. Three or four days before the election, we will raise the alert status of the PNP to full alert status and that will continue until after Undas. Our monitoring will be continuous,” Fajardo said.

However, she said that extending the full alert status until Christmas Day depended on the assessment of the field commanders.

“Our regional directors have discretion to adjust their alert status depending on their areas’ political and crime environment,” said Fajardo, adding that PNP personnel were no longer allowed to go on leave starting the second week of December up until January 2024.
