MESSAGE For the past few years, the Philippine National Police has relied on numerous operational plans for various kinds of police activities and to counter different types of crimes. Thus, this decision to compile and summarize our operational plans into this “Compendium of six Operational Master Plans” is a welcome move, as it would help provide a concise and complete reading facility to our police officers. I, therefore, encourage everyone, especially our police officers in the field to read this Compendium. Ignorance of it does not only excuse anyone, it also creates many dangerous things not only to oneself but also to the entire Philippine National Police. MABUHAY tayong lahat!

MESSAGE Every navigator knows how hard it is to find an island in the middle of the open sea without certain tools like a map or a compass. But with the aid of such tools success becomes a given. The ‘Compendium of six Operational Master Plans” was published precisely to achieve such success in the field of law enforcement. This is one of the tools of the trade necessary for a police officer to accomplish his duties with a high level of efficiency and proficiency. This publication – launched under my humble watch as Director for Operations – provides a concise but complete version of the PNP’s operational plans. It is my hope that this handout becomes an integral part of every policeman and his police station’s “survival kit”. MABUHAY and God bless all of you!

DIRECTORATE FOR OPERATIONS
MISSION
To assist the Chief, PNP in the exercise of command, control, direction, coordination and supervision of all the activities concerning operations, employment and deployment of the PNP.

FUNCTIONS
1. Plans, directs, controls, coordinates ands supervises PNP operations and integrates support activities; 2. Assesses, evaluates and prepares mobilization, demobilization, assignment and/or location employment/deployment of units in coordination with other directorial Staffs; 3. Prepares, coordinates and issues operational plan, orders and directives in accordance with Chief, PNP's policies and guidelines; 4. Maintains active liaisoning with the other Operating Units of the military and other law enforcement agencies; 5. Maintains close supervision, direction, control and coordination of operational activities of all operating units and regional offices of the PNP; and 6. Performs such other duties as higher authorities may direct.

LAW ENFORCER
"Law enforcer" is one whose prime responsibility is to enforce the law and whose constitutional duty is to preserve peace, to defend and protect the people. There are several law enforcement officers appointed and designated by operation of law. Police officer is just one of them. Thus, there is indeed a clear delineation of duties and responsibilities, and definition of jurisdiction in the application of their respective law enforcing authority. As distinguished from other law enforcers, a police officer is a general law enforcer who executes and enforces all existing general, local, special and penal laws other than those specifically and exclusively assigned to other law enforcement agencies of the government.

HOW TO ENFORCE THE LAW:
A law enforcer is presumed to know the law he has sworn to enforce, One must not be allowed to exercise and perform the delicate duty as a law enforcer unless he knows how to enforce and execute the law, including its boundaries and limitations otherwise, abuses, anarchy and lawlessness shall prevail.

Law enforcers must: 1. courts; 2. courts; Know the ability to learn how they are interpreted by the Have the ability to learn how they are interpreted by the

3. Know how to properly execute and enforce such laws; 4. Know how and when to properly effect the arrest of offenders; 5. Have the technical and legal know-how to protect and defend the innocent from harassment, and prosecute offenders who are probably guilty of a felony or a crime.

Unless the foregoing mandatory requirements are accomplished satisfactorily, a new graduate from the police academy and other law enforcement training centers must not be allowed to join or be appointed as a regular member of the Philippine National Police or any law enforcement agency of the government. To do otherwise is by itself a deliberate violation of the constitution, a disservice to the people, and at their useless and unjustifiable expense and prejudice.

CARDINAL RULES RESPECTING HUMAN RIGHTS (Sec 11, Art 11, 1987 Philippine Constitution)

HUMAN RIGHTS ARE THE GOD GIVEN RIGHTS INHERENT TO THE VERY EXISTENCE OF MAN. The right to wear a piece of cloth to shield himself from shivering cold or melting heat; a right to have a bowl of rice to fill his empty stomach for the day; the right to have a shelter to spend the night; the right of every working man to assure himself and his family a life worthy of human dignity; and, the right to live with honor, dignity and respect of his fellowmen living in a just and humane society under the blessing of democracy Entrusted with the constitutional mandate to serve and protect the people, law enforcers should be the very first protectorate of human rights. Failing that task, there is no Aristotelian reason for them to navigate the legal complexity and technical intricacy in the enforcement of laws. Without recognizing and respecting the sanctity of human rights as enshrined in the Constitution, they can never induce public respect or command obedience to existing laws. THEY CAN NEVER EFFECTIVELY ENFORCE THE LAW BY VIOLATING HUMAN RIGHTS!

SANDIGAN (ANTI-CRIMINALITY MASTERPLAN) I. INTRODUCTION A. PURPOSE AND SCOPE

This Plan shall serve as the Master Plan in which all plans and programs of the PNP shall conform with and supplement. It shall prescribe the grand strategy to be undertaken by PNP Offices and personnel on crime prevention, control and suppression, in the total fight against all forces of criminality. B. SITUATION

The campaign against crime is a continuing concern. It is a war that the police can not win alone, and can not in any real sense fight alone. Police can not change the “root drivers” of crime such as poverty, unemployment, poor housing, moral education, freedom, civil liberties, ambitions, dysfunctional families and other ills of socio-economic opportunities. Thus, all aspects of police work should be premised upon active community consent, trust and participation. In so doing, developing effective crime prevention, control and suppression strategies has presented the PNP with a fundamental dilemma. On one hand, crime will always be committed and, indeed, a continuing mandate. From this perspective, the police is viewed solely as a professional crime buster and often criticized if public expectations are not met. On the other hand, the community needs to believe that the police is or can become effective crime buster. Thus, the PNP has been compelled to rethink and redesign its entire approach to this main task through clearer prioritization of targets with emphasis on prevention, control and suppression of crime and more resources moved into proactive policing. C. criminality. D. MISSION ASSUMPTION The primary concern of the PNP for the next five years is curbing

The PNP shall implement a responsive and holistic anti-crime strategy to effective prevent, control and suppress the occurrences of crimes to insure safety in our community. E. OBJECTIVES 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

DEFINITION OF TERMS (Please see appendix E)

III. EXECUTION A. CPNP’S INTENT

“Let us intensify our campaign against crime. Let us create an atmosphere of peace, in close collaboration with the community, local government units, NGOs and international organizations, dedicating our resources and enhancing our capabilities and skills to address national and transnational threats to peace and order”. The efforts of the Police Regional Offices (PROs), Police Provincial Offices (PPOs)/City Offices and Police Stations shall be to set-up and implement a localized Anti-Crime Campaign Plan based on this plan. On the other hand, the National Support Units shall create their efforts in accounting and neutralizing transnational and syndicated crime groups, and support the PROs in their localized Anti-Crime Campaign. B. CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS 1. Strategic Concept a. Improve the Police Security Service Package

1) Effective law enforcement and crime prevention and suppression system. . Foremost among the means of effective law enforcement is the wise utilization of all PNP available assets on the ground. One tested and tried instrument is the Police Security Containment Ring System (PSCRS), composed of the following five (5) major components, deployment of which depends on their availability and the situation on the ground: a) The Innermost Containment Ring, which is composed of barangay tanods, CVOs, NGOs, radio groups, fire/disaster/calamity volunteer brigades that provide localized and needed police services to the barangays. b) The Inner Containment Ring, composed of the foot patrol elements are in uniform for police visibility while the detective patrol component is in “civilian” attire for police presence. Even if there are no uniformed police around the people will still think that a police eye is watching them because they will see police detectives in civilian causing the arrest of crime perpetrators. c) The third component is the Middle Containment Ring, which is composed of bicycle or motorcycle-mounted patrols at control points who shall patrol the residential areas and make the transport loading and unloading areas as their standby points. This will prevent mugging of commuters specially during nighttime. d) The Outer Containment Ring is composed of designated specialized units like the mobile patrols, which shall be

deployed at chokepoints. Their task is to prevent the escape of fleeing criminal and react to call for police assistance. e) The fifth is the Outermost Containment Ring, where the special police units (like the SWAT or anti-terrorist units) and the mobile groups shall serve as security elements at areas designated as strong points, where they can immediately react to call for armed support to beleaguered police personnel on the ground. 2) Adoption by police offices/stations of the Crime and Information Management System, which will systematize the recording, retrieval and analysis of crime data. Another means of effective law enforcement is the adoption by police offices/stations of Crime and Information Management System. In simple terms, the Regional, Provincial and City, and Municipal Police Offices will indicate in their local maps the place and time a crime incident happened. The resulting inputs will constitute the basis for the deployment or redeployment of police resources to maximize their use for anti crime efforts. 3) Deployment of dedicated Police Intelligence and Investigation Teams for criminal gang/syndicates, terrorists, kidnappers, bank robbers, carnappers and specific crime prone areas. The deployment of dedicated intelligence, investigation and manhunt teams is another means of organizational effectiveness. Teams for specific activities involving Internal Security/Terrorist Groups, Kidnapping, Robbery, Hijacking and Carnapping are formed in all police units in varying scale depending on the threat analysis and availability of personnel. These teams shall conduct legal offensives against members of syndicated crime groups to force them out of the locality or, better still, to prevent them in the commission of crimes. 4) Aggressive Anti-Illegal Drugs Campaign

Illegal Drug is the country’s’ number 1 enemy. A high percentage of our populace is affected by this menace and majority of the heinous crimes committed is drug- related. It is for this reason that we do not only put to jail drug pushers but also rehabilitate drug users. The supply and demand reduction strategies should be coupled with a heightened drug education campaign. 5) Strengthening Safety and Internal Security of the Programs for Public

The government considers the crimes such as killings; kidnappings, extortion and etc, committed by the insurgent groups as a criminal act not a political act. It is for this reason that crimes committed by them should be investigated and appropriate cases filed so that justice is afforded to the victims. People who feel that they are not safe in their houses, streets and place of work are predisposed to crime. The police therefore has to lend support. 6) Development Pursuing the objectives for Gender Awareness

This concept will involve the strengthening of Gender and Development thrust of the PNP in collaboration with government organizations, NGOs and women organizations in the country, as great percentage of crimes committed nowadays, involve women and children as victims. b. Strengthen linkages with NGOs, local and international law enforcement organizations, the AFP, and Presidential Task Force and Centers as venues for interagency and international cooperation and support. These organizations and agencies are venues for effective law enforcement coordination and support. The maintenance of peace and order is a multi-disciplinary responsibility and the active linkages with these agencies and offices will redound to the efforts to eliminate transnational and national crimes in the country, to include the criminal activities of internal security threat groups and terrorists. In addition, this linkage would turn very relevant and beneficial during the conduct of special events, like, the holding of honest, orderly and peaceful elections for both national and local officials of the government. c. Enhance the community participation thru the Community-Oriented Policing System (COPS). Through COPS, there will be voluntary community support and cooperation with law enforcement/crime prevention and control activities, thus there will be enhanced police effectiveness and efficiency given the same police resources. d. Operationalize the Community Public Safety Plan (IA/CPSP) Integrated Area/

In order to insure the success of linking up the contribution of the community, the government and the police in guaranteeing the safety and security of the communities, the existing Integrated Area/Community Public Safety Plan of provincial and municipal government units shall complement this Anti-Crime Strategy. Close coordination with respective Peace and Order Councils (POCs), Law Enforcement Coordinating Committees (LECCs), Regional Development Councils (RDCs), Disaster Coordinating Councils (DCCs), Drug Watch and Streetwatch organizations, shall be maintained. e. Justice System Being in the frontline in the operationalization of the Criminal Justice System, the police serves as an effective catalyst in promoting the concepts of justice for crime victims and of enhancing attainment of the objectives of the Anti-Crime Strategy. f. Devise an Effective Feedback Mechanism Promote the objectives of an active Criminal

The continued feedback from all recipients of public safety services received from the citizens through the Project 117 of the DILG, the “Ugnayans” conducted by the PNP and other government agencies, and other sources of reports, complaints, needs, or rejoinders,

shall be the basis for improving the delivery of police services to the citizenry. This feedback mechanism shall serve as the trigger to set off a series of adjustments and if need be, a realignment of the foregoing strategies to attain the purpose of maintaining a peaceful and prosperous community. 2. Operational Concept

The NHQ-PNP, through its directorial staff, shall supervise and support the Police Regional Offices in implementing the strategic agenda and operational concept of this anti-crime strategy. The PNP leadership, through the NALECC, the NDCC and the NPOC, shall coordinate and cooperate with other national government agencies in the realization of the mission of this anti-crime strategy. The Police Regional Offices, through the police provincial/city offices and municipal/city police stations, shall implement their localized anti-crime plans based on this master plan. Their plans shall be focused towards the implementation of localized activities to attain: (1) reduction of crime rate; (2) improvement of response time; (3) improvement of local crime solution efficiency; (4) increase in conviction rate for cases filed in court; and (5) the operationalization of communityoriented policing system (COPS) thru the Police Community Precincts, for the 24-hour community security coverage. The national support units, through their specialized operating units and various regional offices, shall concentrate their efforts towards supporting all the anti-crime efforts of the PROs, except in the pursuit of specific anti-crime tasks assigned to them.

INTRODUCTION

The insurgency problem, whether of the communist or the secessionist type, has social, economic, political and security dimensions. The security part, as manifested by armed guerilla activities, is the most visible sign or symptom of the problem. The security acts only because of the political organization that provides the leadership and the direction. On the other hand, the dissatisfaction and grievances of the people resulting from the socio-economic and political conditions in the area provide the insurgency movement the reason for its being. Thus, insurgency may not be solved by police/military solution alone (although police/military action is vital and an important part), but by a package of government policies and programs that can effectively and simultaneously address the socio-economic, the political and the military aspects of the situation. Accordingly, the whole government machinery and instrumentalities must strongly and coordinately be made to bear on the problem. A. PURPOSE AND SCOPE

This serves as the long-range and holistic master plan of the PNP in waging an internal security support operations nationwide. Premised on the estimate of the national situation and other considerations, it prescribes the counterinsurgency support strategy, operational concept, scheme of implementation, service support, and coordinating instructions in order to accomplish the PNP”s internal security support mission.

All subsequent and supplemental Programs of Action, LOIs, and other related issuances to be prescribed and executed by PNP units and personnel at all levels which would have a bearing on internal security, must therefore conform with the intent/spirit and strategic and operational guidelines embodied herein. This is to ensure the continuity, unity, consistency and synergy of all internal security efforts at all times.

DEFINITION OF KEY TERMS (See Annex 1) NATIONAL SITUATION AND CONSIDERATIONS: 1. General

The Government, through the AFP and the PNP, had launched various campaigns and pacification drives in the past decades to resolve the continuing communist insurgency threat. As a result, the communist insurgent movement experienced a downtrend in its party building, army building and alliance work. This downtrend was attributed among others to the vigorous implementation of the series of the PNP's Sandugo COIN campaign plans and the AFP Campaign Plan Lambat-Bitag. These developments, however, did not lead to the downfall of the Communist Movement. The CPP/NPA, instead, staged a strategic withdrawal to avoid decisive defeat by the government forces.

Subsequently, the CPP/NPA launched a rectification campaign to regain control of LCM lost areas and restore its influence in the rural areas. Additionally, the CPP, having experienced a regression in the Yearly substages of the Strategic Defensive Stage focused its activities on ideological, political and organizational (IPO) work to rebuild the party, its army and mass organizations. During the Philippine Constabulary/Integrated National Police (PC/INP) era, internal and external security were tasks relegated to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). The PC/INP then, as one of the four major services of the AFP had played an indispensable role in counterinsurgency until its deactivation in 1991, with the passage of RA 6975, which resulted in the birth of the PNP. RA 6975 further placed the PNP as the lead agency in the maintenance of internal security although it took until 1995, for the PNP to fully assume its primary role in internal security. However, when RA 8551 was passed into law in 1998, internal security was once again given to the aegis of the AFP. Moreover, Executive Order No. 110 issued on June 15, 1999 mandated the PNP to support the AFP in ISO for the suppression of insurgency and other serious threats to national security.
The military and police counter-insurgency campaigns and other complementing efforts by concerned civil government agencies LGUs and NGOS, may be classified into three major operations or activities, namely: (1) Internal Security Operations (ISO) by the AFP and the PNP to provide security to the people and the government; (2) National Development operations by the civil government agencies to address the root causes of insurgency; and (3) Peace Process by the Office of the Presidential Assistant on the Peace Process (OPAPP) to complement the overall government effort to attract rebels back to the mainstream of society, in the spirit of equality, peace, reconciliation and unification. Essentially, these three mutually complementing efforts are the government’s three-pronged strategy in addressing the country’s insurgency problem. In line with the government’s three-pronged strategy in addressing the insurgency problem, the PNP and the AFP have expanded their roles and actively participated in the civil government’s development activities that strike at the root causes of insurgency. As one recognized weakness of this undertaking is the lack of coordination and unity of efforts among the military/police and civil government agencies, thus the National Peace and Development Plan (NPDP) was formulated. Amidst these changes in the operational environment, coupled with the recent political events in our country, the PNP has to formulate and adopt a comprehensive plan that would define the general guidelines/concepts of operations and tasks to be observed and followed by all PNP units/offices in supporting the AFP in the suppression of insurgency and other serious threats to national security in conjunction with the NPDP and Executive Order No. 110. 2. Strategic Guidance

a.

The National Peace and Development Plan

This Plan sets forth the government’s overall plan for addressing insurgency. It recognizes insurgency as a multi-dimensional problem requiring a holistic and collaborative response and involvement of all sectors of government and of the citizenry. It prescribes the Clear – Hold – Consolidate – Develop (CHCD) operational methodology and envisions to launch a concerted,

integrated and collaborative campaign to address insurgency and its root causes through the “left – hand” and the “right – hand” responses. The “left – hand” response involves the conduct of political and socio-economic reforms to address the root causes of insurgency and win the hearts and minds of the people, while the “right –hand” response involves the conduct of offensive operations that directly contribute to the decisive defeat of the insurgents and the dismantling of their politico-military infrastructures. These offensive operations include diplomatic, political, intelligence, psychological and military offensive. b. Strategy of "Total-Approach" The National Peace and Development Plan has adopted the Strategy of "Total Approach". Its holistic approach to effectively address armed conflicts in the country consists of a security component, a political component and a socio-economic component. The security component directly addresses violent conflicts, the political component seeks to tap the full cooperation of local government units and civil society to promote good governance and local peace initiatives, while the socio-economic component focuses on ways and means to eradicate/alleviate poverty. c. AFP ISO Campaign Plan “BALANGAI”: This is the implementation of the National Peace and Development Plan and consistent with the National Strategy of “Total Approach” and the Clear – Hold – Consolidate and Develop Methodology prescribed in the national plan. It envisions the clearing of barangays one after the other by simultaneously and decisively defeating CPP/NPA armed groups, dismantling LCM politico – military infrastructures and more importantly Winning the Hearts and Minds of the People. The SOT concept is applied in dismantling the politico – military structure of the enemy and employs the TRIAD of intelligence, combat and psychological operations as separate weapons system to decisively defeat its armed groups.

COUNTER - INSURGENCY STRATEGY A. C, PNP’s INTENT

I intend to have all the PNP Offices and units consistently and vigorously perform our tasks as mandated by RA 8551 and further provided in EO 110. The Police Regional Police Offices and other tasked PNP Units shall be employed accordingly to help support the AFP neutralize the LCM nationwide. This way, the armed components, the infrastructures, and the political machinery of the CPP/NPA/NDF will be dismantled by the government. I likewise intend to have the organization help Local Government Units (LGUs) re-establish or strengthen government authority and control over insurgency-affected barangays, and have linkages with other security and development agencies and organizations to help attain the aims of the National Peace and Development Plan of the government. In so doing the PNP would be able to effectively implement and succeed in this campaign plan as the PNP will be greatly involved in harnessing all government resources in the fight against insurgency and its root causes. B. OBJECTIVES 1. Broad Objective

The PNP, in strengthening its participation and involvement in the government’s peace and development machinery, and concurrent with its statutory functions and mandate through Executive Order 110, shall support the AFP in ISO for the suppression of insurgency and other serious threats to national security and to perform its tasks in the National Peace and Development Plan.

2.

Specific Objectives

a. To develop the capability of field units to fully operationalize this ISO support plan for the government and the AFP in particular. b. To support the AFP in the isolation of the underground infrastructure and front organizations of the insurgents in the towns and cities from the general population c. groups d. insurgents. e. To support the governments’ National Peace and Development Plan to include the Peace and Reconciliation plan. C. CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS: 1. Strategic Concept To enhance the conduct of legal offensive against the To enhance intelligence activities against threat

a. The PNP shall basically support the AFP’s ISO Campaign Plan “Balangai” through the conduct of limited internal security operations, sustained law enforcement and PCR activities, intensive information gathering and the conduct of investigation and prosecution of ISO related cases. b. The PNP campaign plan shall also follow the ClearHold-Support operational methodology as herein indicated in support to the integration efforts of the military and other civilian agencies of the government as envisioned in the NPDP and the strategy of “Total Approach”. The CLEAR Stage shall involve the conduct of combat, Intelligence and Psychological operations as separate weapons systems to directly lead to the destruction of the insurgent armed groups. The end state of this phase is dismantled LCM politico-military infrastructure in the affected barangays and the decisive defeat of the main enemy armed groups in the targeted guerilla fronts. The PNP will support the AFP who is primarily responsible for the Clear Stage.

 The HOLD Stage shall involve the utilization of the territorial defense forces to limit the freedom of action and movement of the CPP/NPA, limit its access to resources and reduce mass base support to the CPP/NPA/NDF. This phase shall have the following end state. Integrated Area/Community Public Safety Plan (IA/CPSP) is organized and established, in order to protect the people, defend communities and secure vital assets and installations. The PNP will be primarily responsible for the Hold Stage in areas which are turned over to the PNP or where there are no AFP units assigned.

However, other areas especially in those areas where AFP units are present or where AFP supervises CAFGU then the IA/CPSP is responsible.  The SUPPORT Stage is a “work in progress:. It shall involve police support to consolidation and development activities of other agencies of government. The PNP within its capability shall play a supportive role in these activities, including but not limited to the conduct of medical and dental civic action, adult literacy programs and providing security in support and in coordination with AFP to civil government agencies in their delivery of basic services in far-flung and strife-torn area.  The Consolidation Stage aims to strengthen government control and authority in contested barangays and develop the capability of local officials to effectively govern their barangays. This stage has the following end-state;

1) Government authority and control in contested areas reestablished or strengthened, 2) 3) consolidated, and 4)

Government services delivered, Counter-organizations further expanded and Mass support for the government is enhanced.

The Development Stage has the following for its 1) Root causes of insurgency effectively

end state: addressed, and 2) Political and socio-economic reforms planned at the beginning of the campaign are sustained. c. The overlapping and interrelated phases of this methodology may be conducted simultaneously or sequentially depending on the prevailing situation in the targeted area. The efforts of the PNP shall focus in supporting the AFP on the Clearing and Holding phases, and within the local unit capability they shall provide appropriate support to local government units and other concerned agencies in the Consolidation and Development Phase. d. The principle of integration of efforts shall be applied to accomplish an ISO-related mission. This principal thrust requires the PNP, military and the civil government agencies to work cohesively, and to unify efforts to ensure a focused, effective and holistic approach in addressing insurgency. The role of the police aside from supporting the AFP in neutralizing the insurgent politico-military infrastructure is to help create a physically and psychologically secured environment conducive for socioeconomic development. 2. Operational Concept

a. The NHQ-PNP, through its directorial staff, shall supervise and support the Police Regional Offices in implementing the strategic agenda and operational concept of this counter-insurgency strategy. The PNP leadership, through the NALEC, the NDCC and the NPOC,

shall coordinate and cooperate with other national government agencies in the realization of the intent of this counter-insurgency strategy. b. The Police Regional Offices, through the police provincial/city offices and municipal/city police stations, RMGs and PMGs shall implement their localized counter-insurgency plans based on this master plan. Their plan shall be focused towards the implementation of localized activities to attain: (1) development of the capabilities of fields units to support the AFP in the resolution of ISO problem; (2) isolation of the underground infrastructure and front organizations of insurgents in towns and cities from the general population; (3) enhancement of intelligence activities against threat group; and (4) enhancement of legal offensive against the insurgents. c. The Special Action Force is designated as the reserve mobile/strike unit of NHQ, PNP. It shall be deployed/committed to support the police Regional offices as situation warrants and/or upon request.
d. The PNP National Support Units, through their specialized operating units and various regional offices, shall assist/support the local police units in the conduct of ISO related activities in accordance with their mandated mission and functions.

e. Role of PNP and AFP on Enemy Affected Barangays particularly in areas with guerilla fronts Influenced Infiltrated Threatened

As shown in the above schematic diagram, the AFP takes the primary responsibility in responding to affected areas, particularly in areas with very active and active guerilla fronts. In these areas, the AFP will seek to dismantle/neutralize the insurgent political and armed components by mobile battalions of a tasked unit applying the Special Operations Team (SOT) concept and the TRIAD concept of Intelligence. In built - up areas not affected by insurgency, including cities and urban center, the PNP takes the lead role. It shall continue its normal police functions, such as the enhancement of law enforcement activities, maintenance of peace and order to ensure public safety intensified intelligence, police community relation activities and other related police operations. f. In areas where the AFP due to its limited resources, cannot physically occupy or adequately secure an area, and where PNP units are present or available, the PNP within its capability shall initially provide security in the area until AFP reinforcements shall have arrived. However, in areas where there is preponderance of AFP forces or where it is declared by MOA/policy that they are the OPR, the PNP shall, through the conduct of limited combat support operations assist the AFP mainly because the police personnel to be committed on this aspect are the same personnel that are performing law enforcement functions.
On the ground, the Regional Directors, PDs and Chiefs of Police are enjoined to enter into memorandum of understanding

with their AFP counterparts purposely to delineate and define their respective responsibilities/tasks and command relationship based on their capabilities, limitations and the prevailing threat situation and within the limits of the MOA set by DILG/PNP and DND/AFP.

g. The PNP through the PROs, PPOs/CPOs and MPS shall undertake the following specific activities during the Clearing and Holding Phases of the operational Methodology:

i. Counter-organization effort against insurgents/ secessionists above ground organizations.

Counter - organization such as the CVOs/Bantay Bayan/Kababayan and CAFGUs are organized in barangays that have been de-influenced or cleared from enemy control. The CAFGUs and CVOs/Bantay Bayan/Kababayan shall, during the holding phase, augment the PNP for territorial defense in order to free the AFP maneuver forces to go on all offensive. The CVOs shall help mobilize the people to support the government, the police and the military against the insurgents. Another important element of counter organization is the setting-up of people's organizations and cooperatives in the cleared barangays for various livelihood projects and community - based reforestation (when appropriate). The people's organizations (POs) and Cooperatives can also serve as the nuclei for rural economic development and environmental protection to be orchestrated by concerned government agencies under the baton of the governor or Mayor. j. Organization of CVOs for ISO Support

The CVO is an overt but unarmed component of the Local Defense Organization. They are directly under the control and supervision of the local chief executives who shall be assisted by the local police and/or military elements in the community. The PCR elements of PNP units/offices in collaboration with the local officials, recruit volunteers to become members of the CVOs from all sectors of society such as peasants, workers, students, professionals, businessman, religious sectors, out of school youth and others. The CVOs shall among others perform the following tasks in support of the police and the military in the area: 1) 2) activities; 3) information; 4) in cases of emergency; 5) Support and assist in the identification and implementation of community development projects; and 6) Perform other related tasks. Assist in providing safety and security services Assist in the dissemination of public Collect intelligence reports; Conduct ronda and similar neighborhood watch

k. Conduct of regular meetings of Coordinating Councils to plan, monitor, supervise and revitalize ISO government efforts

Government fora such as the peace and order councils, development councils and the disaster coordinating centers and area coordinating centers are excellent venues or facilities through which various government programs are discussed and facilitated. Concerned PNP units are therefore directed to actively participate in the activities of these bodies for the attainment of a revitalized internal security support operations to the AFP and the government as a whole.
l. and DND/AFP Joint IRR to EO 110 The operationalization of the DILG/PNP

The core objective of the Joint IRR is to delineate the roles and responsibilities of the PNP and AFP in the implementation of the provisions of EO 110 in the areas of Operations, Intelligence, Police Community Relations and Investigation of ISO related cases and other related activities. Likewise, it set forth the concept in Internal Security Operations to be conducted jointly by the AFP with the PNP in the support role in order to preserve the internal security of the State against insurgents and other serious threats to national security. Relatedly, the Clear-Hold-Consolidate-Develop operational methodology shall be applied to carry out the integrated and focused effort of the military, police, the entire government machinery and the NGOs, GOs, POs in addressing insurgency as outlined in the National Peace and Development Plan and the Strategy of Total Approach.

B: Definition of Terms Armed Conflict refers to any conflict between government forces and organized groups which involves the actual use of armed force and which disrupts normal social, economic, political and cultural activities in a specific geographical area.

Centers of Gravity - Are the “source of strength and balance”; that characteristic, capability or locality from wherein the enemy derives its freedom of action, physical strength or the will to fight. It is the “hub of all power and movement”. Its attack should be the focus of all operations. Centers of gravity can change. A major shift in operational

direction, the replacement of a key enemy commander, the fielding of new units or weaponry can significantly shift centers of gravity. Combat Operations - These shall mean offensive and defensive operations such as attack, counter attack, bombing, artillery barrage and other tactical actions involving the use of bigger, tactical forces, bigger caliber weapons, better armored vehicles and both air and naval weapons systems.

 Community-Oriented Policing System (COPS) - an integrated approach to the community’s public safety concern which is based on the notion that the police can provide better services to the community through the development of an effective partnership between and among them. Such partnership must be based on trust and goodwill in order to facilitate voluntary community support and cooperation to law enforcement/crime prevention and control activities, thus enhance police effectiveness and efficiency, given the same police resource. Counter Insurgency - These are the economic, sociocultural, political reforms and development including the military and police actions undertaken by the Government in order to defeat insurgency.

Counter Intelligence - An aspect of intelligence devoted to offensive actions to destroy or neutralize the effectiveness of adverse intelligence activities and to undertake defensive actions to protect information against espionage, individuals against subversion and installations or material against sabotage.
  Government Forces refers to the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the Philippine National Police and other armed groups supporting the government forces.

 Information - Refers to unevaluated material of every description including those derived from observations, communications, reports, rumors, imagery and other sources from which intelligence is produced.  Information Gathering - It is an activity aimed at identifying the composition, organization and leadership, disposition, training, strategy and tactics, logistics, combat effectiveness, plans and other related information about the insurgents and other threat groups. It also includes the acquisition of other related information/data that indirectly or directly relate to insurgency and other serious threats to national security such as: data on criminal elements/groups that can be exploited by or can sympathize with insurgents; results of security survey and personnel security investigation; case build-up as part of legal offensive; analysis/assessment of recovered subversive documents; and, data about the terrain, weather and the people in certain areas.
 Insurgency - a condition of subversive political activity, civil rebellion, revolt or insurrection against a duly constituted government or occupying power, where irregular forces are formed and engaged in actions, which may include guerilla warfare, that are designed to defy, weaken and/or overthrow the government and occupying power.  Integrated Area / Community Public Safety Plan (IA/CPSP) – is the blue print for the protection of lives and properties in a given locality. It is focused on total mobilization of all available resources and the simultaneous conduct of complementary programs involving the

civilian, police and military components of the society. It has ten (10) areas of concern namely: crime prevention, law-enforcement, prosecution, corrections, fire prevention and suppression, counter-insurgency, environmental protection, health and sanitation, civil defense and community development. Integrated Territorial Defense System (ITDS) - Is a strategy of integrating the efforts of mobile, forces, territorial forces (AFP designated territorial forces, CAA companies, PNP and local defense organization); local government; local sectoral organizations (NGOs, POs) and the local populace into an effective defense and security system that will secure and insulate the locality from enemy influence incursion or re-entry.

SANGYAMAN (PNP’s MASTERPLAN TO HELP PROTECT AND PRESERVE OUR ENVIRONMENT, CULTURAL PROPERTIES AND NATURAL RESOURCES) I. INTRODUCTION A. PURPOSE AND SCOPE

This master plan prescribes the guidelines to be followed by tasked PNP Units/Offices in assisting lead government agencies in the enforcement of laws over Philippine territorial waters, lakes, rivers, mountain ranges, forest, to include laws and ordinances that have been set forth to preserve, protect and enhance our environment and natural resources, in close coordination with the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Agriculture, National Museum and other tasked government agencies and non-government organizations. B. SITUATION

The Philippines is one of the countries in the world blessed with significantly rich natural resources. In fact, almost all kinds of minerals, metals, precious stones, animal species, plants, and trees can be found in this very unique archipelago. However, Filipinos and foreigners alike have exploited these resources, and even worse, to the extent of over exploiting and destroying it. The most affected are our marine, aquatic and forest resources. The continuing degradation of our remaining natural resources has reached critical proportion due to illegal destructive methods for business or personal motives. Further contributing to the deterioration of our environment is the exacerbating pollution emanating from vehicles brought about by the rapid urban growth and industrialization. The following are the five (5) immediate concerns that should be addressed in order to insure protections of the environment: Forest Protection; Protection of Fisheries; Marine Life, and Aquatic Resources; Ensuring Clean and Safe Land, Air and Water; Preservation of Endangered Species and Other Wild Life; and Protection of Cultural Properties (Annex “B’ – Five Immediate Concerns). II. DEFINITION OF TERMS (See Annex “A”) III. CPNP’s INTENT It is the C,PNP’s intent for the PNP through its National Support Units (NSUs), Police Regional Offices (PROs), Police Provincial Offices (PPOs), City and Police Stations to assist concerned government agencies in protecting and conserving the country’s natural and man-made resources, including its cultural sites and heritage. Coordination may be undertaken with non-government organizations to further improve the current status of the nation’s wildlife and other

resources in the preservation and protection of all of our country’s natural and man-made resources. IV. OBJECTIVES: A. BROAD OBJECTIVES To protect, conserve and develop our environment and natural resources, in coordination with and in direct support of all concerned government agencies. B. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES Protect Lives People must learn to properly utilize and protect our environment, cultural properties and natural resources. It is unfortunate for our country to have experienced disasters that claimed thousands of lives which can be attributed to peoples’ reckless and erroneous utilization of our natural resources. The disaster that had happened in Ormoc is a clear picture of nature’s way of retaliating to man’s irresponsiveness. Enhance Public Safety Public safety remains to be the top priority of the PNP. Destruction of lives and property caused by continuous misuse, abuse, and malpractices of the people on our natural resources must be fully stopped in order to protect these resources and promote public safety. Hence, the PNP, being deputized to enforce environmental laws, should relentlessly conduct operations that would effect the arrest and conviction of violators and preempt the same from ensuing. The PNP shall assist in cultural properties laws in close agencies ( See annex “B” Environmental, Cultural and Natural the enforcement of environmental and coordination with tasked government - Summary of Pertinent Provisions of Resources Protection Laws )

4. Community Participation in the protection, conservation and development of environment and natural resources. Community participation is an indispensable element in the protection, conservation and development of natural resources. The realization of the vision to live in a community with vast source of natural resources and an environment worthy of emulation will come about through the voluntary community support and cooperation to environmental protection law enforcement, prevention and control activities. V. CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS A. STRATEGIC CONCEPTS

1) Operationalization of the Integrated Area/Community Public Safety Plan (IA/CPSP). One of the areas of concern embodied in the IA/CPSP is the protection of the environment and natural resources. As part of the

strategic concept, THE INTEGRATED AREA COMMUNITY PUBLIC SAFETY PLAN (IA/CPSP) is the blueprint for the protection of lives and properties in a given locality. The IA/CPSP concept requires the total mobilization of all available resources and the simultaneous conduct of complementary programs that will involve the civilian, police and military components of society. The primary responsibility of the PNP is to assist the DENR, National Museum, DA and other tasked government agencies in the conduct of anti-crime operations implementing appropriate environmental, cultural and natural resources protection laws. 2) The employment of both territorial Units/offices and selected National Support Units (NSUs) in the conduct of an all-out and sustained campaign to protect and preserve our environment, natural heritage and natural resources should be executed in tandem with concerned government agencies. Selected NSUs with suitable/relevant capabilities shall be task-organized to track down crime groups involved in illegal activities that contribute to the degradation of the environment and natural resources. B. OPERATIONAL CONCEPTS

The NHQ-PNP, through its directorial staff, shall supervise and support the Police Regional Offices and selected National Operational Support Units in implementing the strategic agenda and operational concept of this master plan. The PNP leadership, through the NALECC, RLECC and PROs, shall coordinate and cooperate with other national government agencies in the realization of the mission of this plan. The Police Regional Offices, through the police provincial/city offices and municipal/city police stations shall select and organize capable and dedicated PNP personnel to be utilized in police operations against violators of environmental, cultural and natural resources protection laws. PNP personnel selected for this purpose shall undergo training on environmental, cultural and other related laws, to ensure their effectiveness in the conduct of operations. In order for the operational concepts to become dynamic, assessment on the operations conducted shall be made together with the Department of Agriculture, National Museum and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources counterpart, to determine its effectiveness; and further recommend new approaches, manner of operations, adjustments on the implementing plans, amendments to environmental laws, and other recommendations that will assure the preservation of our natural resources.

ANNEX “B” FIVE (5) IMMEDIATE CONCERNS THAT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT, CULTURAL PROPERTIES AND NATURAL RESOURCES 1. FOREST PROTECTION

Statistics from the Bureau of Forest Development (BFD) maintains that 11.1 million hectares of forest land are still covered with timber, satellite data and surveys conducted by other quarters reveal a considerably smaller figure. According to the Forestry Development Center of the University of the Philippines, the remaining living forests may only cover an area of between 1.9 million and 2.4 million hectares. Similarly, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UN-FAO) predicted that the country may lose all its forests within 15 years if the continued destruction is not averted. Because deforestation’s manifold effects on the Philippines’ ecological balance is already being strongly felt, particularly in the rural areas, the DENR admits that available resources are not enough for conservation and reforestation programs which require tremendous funding to achieve goals. 2. PROTECTION OF FISHERIES, MARINE LIFE AND AQUATIC RESOURCES

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) claims its inability to stop illegal fishing and harvesting of coral has been hampered by lack of finance. The lack of public awareness and cooperation in matters dealing with conservation is another stumbling block in efforts to save the country’s dwindling natural resources. Blast fishing and muro-ami operations have turned seabeds into killing fields, as shown here in the Philippines. In a recent convention on Conservation in the Pacific and Southeast Asia, convenors appeal for the protection of the reefs. Coral reefs are considered one of the most productive ecosystems. Their direct relationship with fish production has long been established: a healthy reef supports more fish. And in a country like the Philippines, where a great percentage of the population depends on fishing as a means of livelihood, the importance of coral reefs, cannot be underrated. Already, fishermen have expressed concern over the dwindling fish harvests. Yet, ironically, illegal methods of fishing used by fishermen themselves have been responsible for some of the damage. They have used dynamite, chemicals like sodium cyanide, bamboo poles and boulders to either stun or scare the fish toward their nets. In the process, they have destroyed the coral around which the fish hover. 3. ENSURING CLEAN WATER AND SAFE LAND, AIR AND

The continuous alteration of the physical, chemical, nuclear and biological properties of any water, air and/or land resources of the Philippines, or any discharge of any liquid, gaseous or solid wastes at will has created and rendered harmful, detrimental or injurious effects to public health or welfare, and further adversely affect their utilization for domestic, commercial, industrial, agricultural, recreational or other legitimate purposes. As progress was slowly felt, the attitude and mode of living of the people changed. Those who lived near the river considered the river as an ideal dumping place for their increasing garbage and other refuse. In addition, people from other nearby towns, who did not have much regard for the river settled nearby and ventured into piggery and poultry raising. They then turned the pristine river into an instant sewer. Similarly, greedy businessmen thought the river was a quarry and hauled tons of rocks, gravel, and sand. 4. PRESERVATION OF ENDANGERED SPECIES AND OTHER WILD LIFE The profound impact of man’s activities on all components of the natural environment particularly the effect of increasing population, resource exploitation, industrial advancement and man’s ignorance have caused severe lost to our animal and plant resources. Recent assessment on the quantity of the varieties of terrestrial, wetland and marine species of both flora and fauna revealed a very disturbing figures. Eighty nine percent (89%) of the 558 species of birds nationwide are recognized as threatened species, likewise 44% threatened species of mammals and 8 species of endangered reptiles. Similarly, plants in the vast forest areas in the country are continuously experiencing destruction. The depletion of wildlife resources is attributed to the following causes, both direct and indirect: Habitat destruction; Hunting, poaching; Growing human population and inappropriate practices; Lack of knowledge on the value of wildlife; Natural calamities and Introduction of exotic species. To this end, recognizing the critical importance of protecting and maintaining the natural biological and physical diversities of the environment notably on areas with biologically unique features to sustain human life and development should be invoked to the people. 5. PROTECTION OF CULTURAL PROPERTIES

The Philippines has a unique and rich cultural heritage. Evidences of this in the form of ancient churches, ancestral homes, natural and man-made sceneries, and the treasures contained within them are spread out throughout the islands. However, due to a lack of awareness and attention, many of these God-made and man-made structures have fallen into disrepair. Because people have not been properly educated, many historical landmarks are exploited and art pieces are disposed of rather indiscriminately. Today, the Philippines is experiencing a spiritual and cultural renaissance. As we look to the promise of the future and strive to make a mark globally, it is important that we first take stock and become aware of who we are as a people. Art and culture is integral to the celebration and renewal of the spirit . Writings, artworks, relics, and structural landmarks

are tangible evidences of our country’s past and of the way we live. They are the fingerprints of our nation’s character. In view of the above enumerated problems concerning the environment and natural resources, it is the policy of the state to protect the people by effectively enforcing environmental protection laws that would address these problems.

SANGBANAT PNP’s MASTER PLAN ON CAMPAIGN AGAINST ILLEGAL DRUGS I. BASIC PLAN 1. Purpose and Scope

This master plan sets forth the concept of operations, operational guidelines and tasks of all PNP units/offices in the total fight against illegal drugs; integrating/orchestrating the activities of all concerned National Government Agencies (NGAs) in the conduct of antiillegal drug campaign at the national down to barangay levels. 2. Definition of Terms ( See Annex “1” ) 3. Situation a. Facts and Figures

The drug menace has grown to alarming proportion inspite of prevention and suppression efforts by the PNP and other tasked government agencies to combat it. Day by day we are shocked by crimes committed by those high on illegal drugs. Narcotics makes possible the worst and most heinous crimes in society. It distort reason, wreck values, and make monster of men. The number one drug choice in the country is Methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu, followed closely by Marijuana due to its relatively low price and availability. “ECSTACY” or MDMA is now being introduced in the market particularly in nightclubs and discos. Shabu finds its origin from China and its entry into the country is facilitated by foreign and domestic-based syndicates using Hongkong and Taiwan as the staging points. Smuggling activities are perpetrated via ocean-going vessels from where multi-kilos of shabu are transferred ship-side to smaller sea crafts which then unload the illegal drug to our shores. Interdiction records reveals that human couriers are being utilized for both inbound and outbound shipments. Mails and parcels are very popular for outbound shipments of small quantities of drugs. On the other hand, marijuana producing areas in the country are located in Northern Luzon and in Central Visayas. Comparative statistics on the value of drugs seized for the past three decades show a tremendous increase from P80 million pesos worth for the period 1972-1979 to more than P23 billion pesos for the period 1990-2000. Relatedly, records show that, for the year 2000 alone, thirty six thousand seven hundred fifty three (36,753) persons were arrested for involvement in drug related activities, and correspondingly, a seizure of three billion nine hundred ninety four million two hundred sixty four thousand four hundred eighty two pesos (P3,994,264,482.00) worth of illegal drugs. Topping the list in terms of the volume of confiscated illegal drugs is Methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) with a lion share of 85% of the total value of seized drugs, marijuana with 14% and 1% for all the other types of prohibited drugs. b. Diagnosis of the Drug Menace

The motive of the drug lords, traffickers, pushers and their cohorts in the illegal trade is profit. Today, even a simple and ordinary person have entered into the drug trade simply because of its extensive return. The present economic crises forced street level pushers to the retailing of prohibited drugs as a means/source of livelihood. While on the other hand, many abusers use dangerous drugs as a vehicle to escape the realities/ vagaries of poverty and its concomitant problems. Relatedly, lack of knowledge/information, loss of family values and other aspects of prohibited drugs caused many others to fall into the trap. II. OBJECTIVES A. National Objectives 1. To reduce to zero or at least minimize the Profits derived from illicit drug activities thru supply Reduction and Demand Reduction, in order to fulfill the Freedom fro Fear for our people; 2. To address and eradicate or alleviate the Breeding Grounds/risk factors in the environment/social mileu that abet/exacerbate the drug problem, in order to fulfill the Freedom from Want for our people and thereby preempt them from committing or becoming victims of drug-related crimes; and 3. To motivationally enlighten, empower and mobilize the people to participate in and support the Criminal Justice System and Government machinery in attaining the two aforementioned objectives, so that Participatory Democracy shall be institutionalized in our society. B. Broad Objective The PNP conducts an all-out and sustained anti-narcotics campaign to neutralize drug personalities from street-level pushers to big time drug lords, smugglers and syndicates; investigate and prosecute drug offenders; provide for the treatment and rehabilitation of drug dependents; and empower the barangay as self-policing entities against the drug menace. C. Specific Objectives 1. Supply Reduction Arrest of drug personalities and seizure of illegal drugs through intensified police operations. 2. Demand Reduction Implementation of preventive education and public information campaigns to increase awareness of the ill effects of prohibited drugs. This also includes treatment and rehabilitation of drug dependents. 3. Inter-Agency Cooperation - Promote anti-drug related activities among tasked government agencies in close coordination with the NDLEPCC, being mandated to orchestrate and consolidate the drug enforcement and prevention efforts of National Government Agencies, Local Government Units and Non-Government Organizations. 4. Community Participation undertaking the 3 Core Components of Community Oriented Policing System (COPS) namely Full Service Policing (FSP), Problem Solving (PS) and Community Partnership (CP). Generate support, active participation and cooperation of NGOs,

CVOs, other civilian organization in the community, including the formation of civilian organizations. 5. International Cooperation - to run after the transnational drugs syndicates; and plug/minimize the drug traffic to and from the Philippines. Exchange of information and relevant technologies that could be used in the Anti-Drugs Campaign could also be accessed through this pillar. The PCTC, INTERPOL, ASEANAPOL, Defense/Military and Police attaches, embassies, consulates, international NGOs, like the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the like are the avenues through which international cooperation could be tapped against transnational syndicates and sources of drugs. This new pillar is but a natural consequence of the “globalization of the world into a village”. III. CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS A. STRATEGIC CONCEPTS It is a three-pronged strategy, each prong assigned to overcome its targeted obstacle and accomplish its allocated objective. 1st Prong: Supply/Demand Reduction Campaign It consist of Production, Processing, Trafficking, Financing, Retailing and Consumption prevention/control measures to reduce profit to zero and thereby accomplish the first national objective. 2nd Prong: Development/Reform Package of Programs (Drug Preemption Campaign) It encompasses Education, Good Government, Development/Industrialization, Moral/Values/Spiritual Formation and Legal Reform Programs to address/solve the risk factors/deficiencies in the environment and thereby attains the second national objective. 3rd Prong: People Empowerment Campaign Its components include Propaganda, Organizational, Political, Enforcement and Ideological Drives to catalyze into action the people and eliminate the crisis of citizenship, and thereby realize the third national objective. (Please see Annex “L”). The operational methodology for People Empowerment consists of Motivational enlightenment Organization and Mobilization (Annex “M”). The ultimate goal is to be able to mobilize People Power against the drug menace nationwide, as envisioned in Annex “N”. B. OPERATIONAL CONCEPTS The above-strategic concept shall be operationalized by the PNP through the execution of the following Concept of Operations: 1. Supply Reduction Drive (SRD) a. Activities to be undertaken by the PNP

The PNP shall endeavor to reduce the supply side/segment of illegal drugs to the barest minimum level possible. This is to simultaneously drive the prices of drugs skyrocketing high and create acute

shortage of the contraband to deathknell level. about by doing the following: 1) aerial); b) lands; c) planters, guards, etc.;

The PNP shall bring this

Production Control Measures a) Crop eradication operations (manual and Confiscation/forfeiture of plantation

a) b) c) d) e) f) pushers, as may be warranted; g)

h)

Others.

b. Regional Anti-Illegal Drugs Task Forces (RAIDTAFs) and their Anti-Drug Syndicates and Supply Reduction Drive (SRD) Operations. RAIDTAFs operations shall focus on the neutralization of the masterminds, drug lords, traffickers, top cohorts from the Police/Military/Government and others including the pushers of the different drug syndicates in their respective regions. On the other hand, their Supply Reduction Drive operations shall dismantle and stop the supply segment of the drug chain above including retailing. Anti-Syndicated and Supply Reduction Operations shall be conducted in three (3) phases, as follows: Phase I - Surveillance/Case build Up - This will include the review/updating of intelligence files, identification/listing of target personalities and instrumentalities/locations/etc; building up of the potential case to be filed later by listing possible witnesses, scanning for pieces of evidence, etc; and the like. These will be done primarily by joint forces of NG, CIDG, IG, TMG and concerned PROs. Phase II - Negation Phase - This will be executed by SubPhases; namely: Preparatory, Proper and Post-Negation. In the PreNegation Sub-Phase, coordination/”test buys”/ application for warrants/ organization and equipage of operating team/s mission briefingorientation/etc shall be undertaken. In the Negation Proper Sub-Phase, the operation/raid is conducted/SOCO-evidence gathering/collection-proper handling of evidence/secure presence of Brgy Officials/secure witnesses/arrest and TI of suspects/etc shall be conducted. In the PostNegation Phase, getting result of lab test/debriefing/preparation and filing of report/accounting of seized evidence/etc shall be done. Phase III - Legal Offensive Phase - It shall include the preparation and filing of criminal charges, confiscation/forfeiture procedure, pursuing tax evasion cases, providing protection to witnesses, preservation of and accountability for evidence, maximum security to prevent escape of drug suspects, case tracking and follow-up, prosecution activities and the like; until the case is resolved/decided by the courts. The goal here is to assure the conviction and secure the maximum penalty, preferably death, for the personalities involved in drugs. This phase shall be done primarily by the PROs/PPOs/CPOs/Pol Stations concerned, so as not to tie down/over burden the RAIDTAFs and for continuity in the prosecution of cases. c. PROs and Other Regional NSUs and Their AntiPushers/Users, SRD, and BANAT Operations 1) Anti-Pushers/Users Operations

The Anti-Pushers/Users Operations such as the conduct of buy-bust, raids of drug dens, arrest of those engaged in pot sessions and the like shall be retained and conducted by the PROs through their respective PPOs/CPOs/Police Stations/Precincts and Mobile Groups. With the help and support of NGAs, LGUs and NGOs, PROs/PPOs/CPOs/PSs/PPs shall also address the root causes/breeding grounds that prompted them to be pushers/users such as undertaking livelihood projects and/or treatment and rehabilitation.

(NOTE: Anti-Pushers/users and DRD Operations shall be done by the PROs through their respective PPOs/CPOs/PSs/PPs as part of their COPS implementation in their respective AORs; that is, FSP, PS and CP operations/activities.) 2) BANAT Operations

To disinfect/clear and empower drug-affected barangays to become self-policing communities and eventually turnedover to barangay officials, BANAT Operations shall be conducted thereat. For this purpose, all barangays shall be assessed by the Intelligence Community with the help of Barangay Officials, and categorized according to the degrees of drug affectation. The categorization shall be as follows: Target priority 1-Category 1 Seriously affected- when 2.5% or more of the local population are drug dependents and/or existence of pushers/drug traffickers, drug syndicates and/or MJ plantation within the barangay. Target Priority 2-Category 2 -Less Seriously affected - when 1.0% to 2.49% of the local residents are drug dependents. Target Priority 3 -Category 3-Threatened to be affected-when less than 1% of the populace are drug dependents. Target Priority4 - Category 4- Unaffected – when there are no pushers and users. Parameters to be considered in this categorization should be: a) b) c) d) Number of users and pushers Presence of protectors/coddlers, syndicates No of Drug related cases Number of users and pushers apprehended and number of those who voluntarily surrendered for rehabilitation.

BANAT OPERATIONS in drug-affected baragays shall be conducted by the following outfits: a) Clearing of drug-affected barangay of narcotics abusers and traffickers, and empower the barangay folks to become a self-policing community against the drug menace. b) The PNP field units with the cooperation of the different NGAs, LGUs and/or NGOs, shall address the rootcauses/Breeding Grounds that prompted pushers and abusers to indulge in drugs through development-oriented package of projects and activities. The process of disinfecting and empowering a target barangay shall entail several operations and activities to be executed by phases. Phase I - Social Investigation and Planning- It shall include intelligence gathering about drug syndicates, pushers and users; baseline and social research to know the socio-economic root-causes of drug trafficking and addiction; operations and development planning; etc.

Phase II - Neutralization - At this stage, appropriate police operations by PNP line units shall be conducted to arrest drug personalities, their goons/henchmen, pushers, etc. The objective is to remove the atmosphere of fear in the community. Phase III - Field Units shall undertake the application of ScanningAnalysis-Response - Analysis (SARA) problem-solving methodology designed to identify/locate who/what are the persons/entities that can be tapped as "Guardians" to counter the drug menace in the barangay. These Guardians shall be organized and mobilized to form a link against the drug menace. Phase IV- This shall involve the implementation of development projects designed to address/alleviate the rootcauses; such as provide alternative livelihood for the pushers, worthwhile alternatives and rehabilitation for the drug dependents; and the like. Phase VBarangay Empowerment Field Units shall jointly empower the barangy folks against the drug menace by organizing BINs, conducting rondas, educating the local folks about the ill effect of drugs, implementing operation "Private Eye", etc. This will continue until the barangy is completely rid of pushers, ushers and drug personalities. Phase VI- Self-Policing Community The barangay shall be declared drug-free once the set of criteria are met. This will be culminated with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Brgy Chairman and the PNP PD/CD/COP in the presence of LGUs, NGOs, and other civic groups. 3) Counterintelligence

Counterintelligence shall be intensified and sustained by IG and Intelligence personnel of RAIDTAFs and PROs/PPOs/CPOs/Police Stations/Precincts with the support of PTFIC, NBI, NICA and AFP to identify and weed out the police, military, and other government personnel who are involved in Dangerous Drugs. The immediate superior of such misfits/scalawags shall be held accountable under the Doctrine of Command Responsibility. There shall be strict screening (including drug test), close surveillance and supervision of police/military/government personnel who are tapped for anti-drug efforts. 4) Operation "Private Eye"

To enhance the Intelligence and Counterintelligence efforts of the Anti-Narcotics Campaign, People's Power shall be harnessed through the implementation of operation "Private Eye" by all RAIDTAFs and PROs. The citizenry shall serve as the "eye and ears" of the police by collecting and reporting/submitting information/leads/evidence against drug personalities, drug chain instrumentality and activities, and their cohorts in the police/military/government. Monetary and other incentives shall be offered and given to anyone who could so provide such info/leads/evidence that shall lead to the arrest of drug elements (with or without warant of arrest) who could be caught flagrante delicto (doctrine of citizen 's arrest situations) and/or location of illegal drug Instrumentalities such as MJ plantations. The amount of reward/incentive shall be commensurate to the gravity of the crime/notoriety of the suspect/etc; and the schedule of rewards/incentives widely disseminated. The identity of the "Private eye/ear" shall remain anonymous and special payment scheme shall be devised and implemented to preserve same. In case it is compromised,

security and assistance shall be provided to him/her; including availment of the Witness Protection Program, if qualified. 5) Operational Guidelines

i) RAIDTAFs and PNP Units shall pursue aggressively the arrest, prosecution and conviction of suspects and dismantling of their drug chain instrumentalities such as MJ plantations, laboratories, support system, etc. ii) RAIDTAFs and PNP Regular Units shall conduct coordinated operation with each other, other law enforcement agencies, other pillars of the CJS, with support/assistance of the AFP, PTFIC, and NBI. For this purpose, the Law Enforcement Coordinating Committees (LECCs) and Peace and Order Councils (POCs at various levels shall be tapped for this purpose. iii) All RAIDTAFs Commanders and RDs, PROs shall be evaluated/rated and held accountable for the performance of their respective units as well as the involvement of their personnel in illegal drug activities. For this purpose, the following are the performance indicators/parameters: Arrest, prosecution and conviction of drug personalities Neutralization of Drug Syndicates and dismantling of illegal drug instrumentalities. No. of cases filed in court and conviction rate. No. of police/military/government personnel investigated/prosecuted for involvement in drugs/drug chain activities. No. of Barangays cleared/empowered/self-policing No of pushers and users rehabilitated. Demand Reduction Drive (DRD)

2.

Demand Reduction Drive Operations(DRD) These will be undertaken through Primary, Secondary and/or Tertiary Prevention Approaches. Tertiary Prevention Approaches which shall be coordinated/initiated/pump-primed and/or carried out by PROs/PPOs/CPOs/PSs/PPs, as the case maybe. These will be done with the support of other NSUs Regional Offices such as Police Community Relations Group (PCRG), Health Service (HS), Logistics Support Service (LSS), etc, as appropriate. The NGAs, LGUs, and NGOs shall likewise be catalyzed, organized and/or mobilized to help in this effort. The PNP, in collaboration with all other government tasked units, shall exert all-out and sustained efforts to reduce, if not eradicate, the demand side/segment of illegal drugs. The NGAs, LGUs, NGOs, and the Private Sector/Civil Society shall be harnessed in multi-agency/sectoral efforts and cooperation to address the rootcauses giving rise to and abetting the drug menace, especially the drug dependents and pushers. The effective implementation of the Community Oriented Policing System (COPS) and the Integrated Area Community Public Safety Plan (IA/CPSP), is the key to achieve the goal of reducing the demand side level of the drug menace.

The approaches to zero in to this side of the campaign with their respective target groups are as follows: a) Primary Prevention Approach for Non-Users

Primary prevention attempts to discourage the initiation of drug use, especially by children and adolescents. It tries to keep them from “falling into the drug river”. A sequence of mutually reinforcing measures is encompassed by primary prevention. The measures and their respective activities are the following: 1) Public Awareness  Public service announcements  Advertisements  Press conferences  Press materials  Public forums Public Education  In-depth coverage on TV and radio  Newspaper features  Parent mobilization and education  School curricula  Symposia for key influencers like parents, teachers, etc. Attitude and Behavioral Change/ Reinforcement  Parenting skills training  Peer counseling  Resistance skills training  Alternatives to drug abuse Social/Public Action  Neighborhood improvement  School renovation  Job creation  Drug-free zones  Police patrol and protection

b) Secondary Prevention Approach for “Experimenters” and Casual Drug Users Secondary prevention (intervention) discourages the escalation of drug consumption by occasional or experimental users and encourages them to return to non-use. It tries to get them “out of the drug river” before too much damage is done -- and then keep them out. In addition to the measures listed under primary prevention, casual users may need direct, one-on-one assistance, including identification and referral services and short-term counseling. Increased attention is being given to women of childbearing age who may put their unborn children at risk not only of fetal drug effects, but also of AIDS. Successful intervention reduces the prevalence of drug abuse. The measures and their respective activities are as follows: 1) Outreach Identification and Referral

      2)

Community-based information and referral networks Employee assistance programs Drug-related arrests Emergency rooms Health clinics Social service agencies

Intervention  Hotlines  Crisis counseling  Short-term counseling  Emergency rooms  Health clinics Preventive Approach for Addicts and

c) Recovering Persons

Tertiary

Tertiary prevention provides treatment and aftercare to help people get off and stay off drugs. It tries to save the casualties of drug use, to revive them, then help them stay “out of the drug river”. Addicted and recovering people may profit from the kinds of measures listed under primary and secondary prevention, but typically will also need intense and extended one-on-one services as well as long-term support. Both the AIDS epidemic and the mounting numbers of children suffering from in utero drug exposure call for intensified prevention activities at the tertiary stage. Successful treatment and aftercare reduces the prevalence of drug abuse. The measures and their respective activities are listed hereunder: 1) Detoxification  Inpatient  Outpatient  “Social” detox Chemically Assisted or Drug-Free  Outpatient  Inpatient  Short-term residential  Long-term residential Relapse Resistance  Halfway houses  Aftercare programs  Support groups (e.g. Alcoholics) Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous) to emphasize that a single approach can job. The goal is to combine selected sequence possible; to address as many risk will allow; to include a range of key setting powerful influencers from all segments in

It is most important never do the full prevention approaches in the most powerful groups as the prevention budget in the program; and to engage these effort. 3.

International Cooperation (IC )

There is an overwhelming evidence that production, trafficking, and consumption of narcotics and psychotropic drugs has already reached global scale, with far reaching consequences for the international community. The illicit drug trade has been fueled by its tremendous profitability, thus, it has evolved from a complex and sophisticated trade into a commercial industry and has surpassed the expectations and predictions of many government worldwide, with some serious implications for the future. The key factor influencing the production of illicit drugs is the rise in global consumption. Aware of the magnitude of the problem, the United Nations through its instrumentality, the UN International Drug Control Program and the various conventions passed in recent years, had endeavored to secure commitments among the parties-signatories as well as intergovernmental and international organizations, the important role of the suppressing the growing global drug abuse problem. In response to the challenge, the UNDCP has sought to focus attention on the underlying linkages between the illicit drug phenomenon and other threats facing the international community through the development of a multidimensional global efforts to reverse drug related trends before they acquired serious dimensions. The government of the republic of the Philippines is a signatory to three international drug control conventions: The Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961 as amended by the 1972 Protocol. The Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971 and the United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances of 1988; and the Political Declaration of the Special Session of the General Assembly Devoted to Countering the World Drug Problem Together held in New York on June 8-10, 1998. The country does reaffirms its commitment to overcome the drug problem through domestic and international strategies to reduce both the illicit supply and demand for drugs. It further recognizes that the action against the problem of drugs is a common and shared responsibility of all States that must be addressed in a multilateral setting. The concern of the international community on the gravity of the drug problem is reflected in the more familiar environment of Philippine drug enforcement and prevention. Today’s drug syndicates are immensely improved versions of gangs of the past. They have the resources and financial capability to recruit experts in fields relevant to the trade. They can form armies and influence governments. The complexity and size of the international drug trade, punctuated by the ability of the traffickers to redirect operations from country to country, necessitates an equally sophisticated response and cooperation by the governments in fulfillment of public safety concern as well as their obligations under the UN conventions aimed at fighting trafficking and drug abuse on the global dimension. To this end, the I.C.P.O. – Interpol remains as an institutional mechanism for international police cooperation. As an intergovernmental organization with special arrangements with the UN, it has a total membership of 169 countries, of which 28 are in the Asia-Pacific region to serve as a focal point of cooperation. The National Central Bureaus (NCBs) conduct police actions oriented work within the limits set by their national legislative and administrative system. dangerous The strategy, therefore, towards a worldwide fight against drugs, is to forge bilateral and multilateral

relationships/agreements between nations (through the Department of Foreign Affairs or through the National Drug Law Enforcement and Prevention Coordinating Center) to solidify international cooperation in chemical control and prevention of drug trafficking.

PURPOSE:

This Master Plan sets forth the strategic concepts and operational guidelines, as well as contingency plan to ensure the maintenance of peace and order during the year-round observance of holidays, which involves great concern on movement of the citizens, international, national and local meeting/conferences/events, and rallies/mass action in protest to wide range of issues. 1. Broad Objective

The PNP, concurrent with its mission and functions, conducts police operations to ensure utmost security possible to individuals and vital installations, most especially during the holding of special events. It shall undertake coordinated courses of action necessary to prevent, contain, neutralize persons from inflicting any harm upon people or damage to property especially on activities involving foreign guests and tourists. 2. Specific Objectives

In the conduct of providing security for various events, the PNP, thru its Police Regional/Provincial Police Offices (PROs/PPOs) and National Support Units (NSUs) shall undertake the following: a. To catalyze all PNP units to enhance coordination and cooperation with government units and private sectors in their respective areas of jurisdiction, to be able to come up with measures to preempt the occurrence of crimes that can adversely affect the safety and security of individuals and vital installations; b. To enhance the level of awareness and preparedness of PNP personnel in providing security to individuals and vital installations, and in dealing mass actions; c. To enhance the units’ capability to identify and neutralize threat groups; and

d. To determine and rectify PNP vulnerabilities which maybe exploited by the threat groups. III. SITUATION: The security situation is one of the factors that greatly affect the economic conditions of the country. The Philippine National Police, being the forefront of maintaining peace and order and public safety, undertakes security measures towards the attainment of a safe place to live, work, invest and do business in. Wide range of issues which tend to beset/affect the lives of the populace are being capitalized by cause-oriented groups/various threat groups, to coerce moderate organization/s to join in staging mass actions, such as rallies, demonstration, strike, etc. to project their positions and demands. The situation can likely be taken advantage of by the dissidents/terrorists to create an atmosphere of chaos and destabilization. Hence, the need to integrate PNP efforts with the national and local government units to be able to come up with a program of action that is well-coordinated, unified and responsive to the situation at hand to preempt, prevent and/or suppress destabilization and/or terroristic acts. IV. MISSION: The PNP, concurrent with its mission and functions, secures and protects the people and facilities from any acts of violence, to further ensure normal functions of the government, business establishments, and preserve the freedom of travel and assembly; orderly and safe conduct of any local, national or international events. V. EXECUTION: 1. STRATEGIC CONCEPTS –

In furtherance of the PNP’s thrust in providing security coverage and public safety services to ensure the peaceful and orderly conduct of any event/activities, in close coordination with the concerned government agencies, non-government organizations (NGOs) and civilian volunteer organization (CVOs), the following shall compose the strategic concepts: a. The Police Security Containment Ring System (PSCRS). The deployment of which depend on their availability and the situation on the ground: a.1 The Innermost Containment Ring, composed of barangay tanods, CVOs, NGOs, radio groups; a.2 The Innermost Containment Ring, composed of the foot-patrol elements in uniform for police visibility while the detective patrol component is in “civilian” attire for police presence; a.3 The Middle Containment Ring, which is composed of bicycle or motorcycle-mounted patrols at control points; a.4 The Outer Containment designated specialized units like the mobile chokepoints; and Ring, composed patrols, deployed of at

a.5 The Outermost Containment Ring, where the special police units (like SWAT or anti-terrorist units) and the mobile groups shall serve as security elements at areas designated as strong points, where they can immediately react to call for armed support. b. The Operationalization of an Integrated Area/Community Public Safety Plan (IA/CPSP) Through the coordination with the local Peace and Order Councils, Law Enforcement Coordinating Councils and Disaster Coordinating Council, the formulated and developed IA/CPSPs of local government units are rationalized in order that it shall appropriately serve as the unified and integrated direction of the local public safety programs and create an active shield against the problems associated with internal security. c. The Community Involvement thru the Community Oriented Oriented Policing Systems(COPS) The function of the community in nation building is not only crucial, it is absolutely imperative. Efficient and effective delivery of police services can only be attained through the development of a responsive partnership, based on trust and goodwill, between the community and the police. The interaction among the community players, which result in a partnership for a peaceful community is called COPS. d. Effective Feedback Mechanism

The continued feedback from all recipients of public safety services received from the citizens through the Project 117 of the DILG, the “Ugnayans” conducted by the PNP and other government agencies, and other sources of reports, complaints, needs, or rejoinders, shall be the basis for improving the delivery of police services to the citizenry. This feedback mechanism shall serve as the trigger to set off a series of adjustments and if needed be, a realignment of the foregoing strategies to attain the purpose of maintaining a peaceful and prosperous community. 2.

PURPOSE:

This Letter of Instructions sets forth the strategic concepts, operational guidelines and coordinating instructions to be undertaken by PNP Offices and personnel on disaster management. With this Letter of Instructions, the action that will be undertaken by the concerned PNP units/offices will be as responsive and possible with the support of the government agencies and the community. III. SITUATION: The great ocean and seas around the Philippines, while providing wide avenues for international trade and commerce and source of tremendous marine resources, also serve as the spawning areas of destructive typhoons and monsoons. Being in the so-called Circum-Pacific belt of fire and typhoons, our country has always been subjected to series of natural disasters and calamities yearly, which usually result in deaths, miseries and massive destruction of property. Disasters, which could be natural and human-made, would cause enormous loss in terms of human lives and property, the destruction of environment and the setback of economic development. It has been noted that the number and costs of disasters continue to rise overtime. This is in view of the increasing vulnerabilities of societies and communities to natural and man-made disasters. On the other hand, poverty and population pressures have forced growing numbers of poor people to live along harm’s way – on flood plains, unstable hillside and earthquake-prone zones. Their extraordinary vulnerability is perhaps the most important cost of the high number of disaster casualties. Moreover, in cities and communities experiencing rapid industrialization and urbanization, the lack of disaster-risk mitigation programs contributes to their increasing vulnerability to disaster. In whatever part of the country we are located, the possibility of experiencing the gloom and the stark reality of all types of hazards: typhoons, floods, flashfloods, drought, earthquakes, volcanic eruption, landslide, fire, maritime disasters, air disasters, oil spills, etc., is always present.

Relatedly, the PNP’s inherent duty for public safety dictates the provision of area security; search, rescue/recovery, evacuation and relief operation in affected areas, in support to the tasked government agencies/instrumentalities of the Disaster Coordinating Councils. The program thrusts shall be pursued thru the implementation of keeping the police units and personnel ready to serve, and provide support to community development. IV. MISSION:

The Philippine National Police, as the Disaster Coordinating Council operating unit, conducts disaster preparedness activities, provides security coverage in disaster areas, and assist in search and rescue, evacuation, and relief operations. V. EXECUTION:

This Master Plan embraces all conceivable contingencies, short of war emergency, making use of all available resources the PNP can muster to execute the NDCC Calamities and Disaster Preparedness Plan. The intent conceived in this LOI is to make operation plans promulgated by the different regional commands functional and action-oriented and is capable of meeting simple or multiple contingencies. This LOI encourages the concept of self-reliance by promoting the spirit of self-help and mutual assistance among the local officials and their constituents which the local PNP units will be in contact with and/or will be working with during disasters and calamities. Preparedness is constant alertness and constant enhancement of capabilities. Readiness is preparedness for the worst. As member-Agency, the PNP is tasked to organize Police Auxiliary Services in the cities, municipalities and barangays; and to provide security coverage in disaster areas. A. STRATEGIC CONCEPTS functions, the

In furtherance of the DILG/PNP mandated following shall compose the strategic concepts:

1. CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVING POLICE SECURITY SERVICE PACKAGE Effective law enforcement and crime prevention and suppression system, through the Innermost Containment Ring of the Police Security Containment Ring System (PSCRS), which is composed of barangay tanods, CVOs, NGOs, radio groups, fire/disaster/calamity volunteer brigades that provide localized and needed police services to the barangays. 2. THE OPERATIONALIZATION OF AN INTEGRATED AREA/COMMUNITY PUBLIC SAFETY PLAN (IA/CPSP) - While emergency preparedness is a joint responsibility of the national and local government, its effectiveness will depend largely on the skills and resources, and the involvement of private organizations and the general public in the area of disaster. Through close coordination with the Disaster Coordinating Council, the formulated and developed IA/CPSP of the PNP, in consonance with the local government units is rationalized in order that it shall appropriately serve as the unified and integrated direction of the local public safety programs to be more resolve to confront disaster on a total system approach.

3. THE COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT THROUGH THE COMMUNITY-ORIENTED POLICING SYSTEM (COPS) - The function of the community in nation building is not only crucial, it is absolutely imperative. Efficient and effective delivery of police services can only be attained through the development of a responsive partnership, based on trust and goodwill, between the community and the police. The interactions among the community players, which result in a partnership for a peaceful community is called COPS. 4. EFFECTIVE FEEDBACK MECHANISM - The continued feedback from all recipients of public safety services received from the citizens through the Project 117 of the DILG, the “Ugnayans” conducted by the PNP and other government agencies, and other sources of reports, complaints, needs, or rejoinders, shall be the basis for improving the delivery of police services to the citizenry. This feedback mechanism shall serve as the trigger to set off a series of adjustments and if needed be, a realignment of the foregoing strategies to attain the purpose of maintaining a peaceful and prosperous community. B. OPERATIONAL CONCEPT The activities to be undertaken shall be as follows: Preparation – Involves planning, readiness through information dissemination and training, and pre-positioning of response/reaction teams to meet all foreseeable threats/emergencies. Planning and operation shall be done on an inter-agency, multi-sectoral basis to optimize the utilization of resources. Goals and objectives have to be more realistic and attainable. b. Organization – Inventory of equipment, manpower and resources of different participating government agencies, non-government organizations and private entities which can be readily tapped when the situation so requires. Considered the Council’s frontier in its response are the following association/groups, but not limited to: medical, contractors, fire volunteers, mountain climbers, engineers, communications, transport, etc. c. Accounting – Resources and equipment committed shall be accounted for maximum utilization/disposition and the proper turn-over of same after the disaster operations. d. Coordination Networking with the LGUs, other government agencies such as DPWH, DECS, DSWD, the non-government organizations and private entities. The deployment of PNP personnel in every municipal/city throughout the country, become magnanimous to the first line of response mobilized to the scene/disaster response operation. Rescue and recovery operations shall be conducted at the Barangay/Municipal/Provincial nearest the disaster incident until such time that the appropriate agency concerned should have taken over the control of the rescue operations. To this end, regular/simulated exercises and drills will be conducted at all levels to enhance the PNP’s and community reaction capability and ensure precision and spontaneity in responding to emergencies.
