Attack on Government/Public Vital Installations), and PNP LOI 13/2011 (SANGINGAT-CHARLIE), the PNP leadership reminds the public to be more vigilant and alert as annual special events like All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day are expected to bring an influx of people in the different areas of convergence like cemeteries, malls, transport terminals, and train stations, as well as major thoroughfares and roads leading to the provinces. With this, Police Director General (PDG) Bartolome has issued and reiterated crime prevention and safety tips for the public to keep them aware of their security. “Every member of the community plays a vital role in our aim to maintain peace and order and security in our country as the All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day nears. Our Crime Prevention and Safety Tips are just one of the things that our people can do to prevent or reduce their chances of becoming

a victim of lawless activities and criminals,” PDG Bartolome said. PDG Bartolome has ordered the conduct of random mobile checkpoints, and foot and mobile visibility patrols in accordance with the Police Integrated Patrol System to prevent criminals in executing their lawless activities. “Security patrols in residential areas will be also enhanced with the support of volunteers or force multipliers to prevent break-ins and akyat-bahay,” the PNP Chief added. The PNP Chief has also instructed the Directorate for Police Community Relations to orchestrate the active participation of radio groups, accredited nongovernment organizations, and community-based volunteers in providing traffic management, road safety, and community watch during the celebration and reminiscence of our dear family and friends who passed away.( Philippine National Police)

the limits of time and space.
