More traffic enforcers for Labor Day



In a bid to maintain peace and order during today’s observance of Labor Day, the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) will deploy 1,758 police personnel to secure possible areas where there may be threats and civil disturbances, as well as implement health and safety protocols.

P/Brig. Gen. Antonio Yarra, QCPD director, said, “We will deploy additional police personnel to maintain peace and order in our city. We would also like to ask our residents to stay at home so we can avoid the spread of Covid-19.”

The QC police and Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office are also prepared to provide medical and rescue assistance in the event of an earthquake, fire and other natural and manmade disasters.

Meanwhile, the Task Force for Transport and Traffic Management (TFTTM) will deploy 282 traffic enforcers and assist in maintaining social distancing and health protocols in community pantries, cash assistance payout centers and vaccination sites.

The Office of the City Mayor has instructed that IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force) health protocols are strictly observed and to ensure orderliness at the community pantries.

The city will deploy additional personnel from the law and order cluster, 100 personnel from the Department of Public Order and Safety, Market Development and Administration Department, Task Force Disiplina, and Barangay Public Safety Officers from different barangays.

“We have deployed enforcers for the implementation of social distancing and health protocols, especially in community pantries, aid payouts and at vaccination sites. Of course, there will also be enforcers for traffic assistance,” Dexter Cardenas, TFTTM chief, said.

Likewise, the city mayor called on residents to refrain from going out their homes unless necessary as mass gatherings are still not authorized during the modified enhanced community quarantine.
