MANILA — The Philippine National Police (PNP) has instructed all of its units to conduct a vulnerability check on all their installations nationwide to ensure their capability to repel attacks and other forms of harassments from rebel groups and other lawless elements.
The order was issued by PNP head Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, said police spokesperson Chief Supt. Dionardo Carlos in a Radyo Pilipinas report Tuesday.
The vulnerability check aims to ensure the readiness of police units to defend themselves and repel the attack of the lawless elements, he added.
Dela Rosa issued this order following recent encounters with rebel groupings in Caranglan, Nueva Ecija and Mount Banoy, Batangas.
In line with this, the PNP chief has also ordered all operatives to intensify their intelligence gathering missions so as not to be caught flat-footed.
