Camp Crame steps up security

POLICEMEN and civilians entering the Philippine National Police (PNP) national headquarters in Camp Crame will be subjected to random checks to see if they are following the traffic rules and regulations.

PNP Headquarters Support Service director , Brigadier General Jesus Cambay said this means that policemen driving marked PNP vehicles will be inspected if they are the official drivers of the vehicles, are in complete uniform, wearing their seatbelts and have unexpired driver’s licenses.

Cambay said  with the help of officers from the PNP Highway Patrol Group, his men will also be checking the registration papers of policemen and civilians driving motorcycles and 4-wheeled motor vehicles as they enter Camp Crame’s Gates 1 and 2.

“This is part of our ongoing effort to enforce Republic Act 4136 inside our national headquarters which is supposed to be the showcase of police discipline,” said Cambay.        Cambay said when he was the Deputy Regional Director for Administration of the Police Regional Office 6 in Western Visayas, they briefly impounded three mobile cars which were found to be being driven by unauthorized policemen-drivers.

The PNP-HSS has stepped-up its security amid the deadly “suicide bombing” in Basilan that killed three soldiers and two “suicide bombers” and wounded at least 17 others.
