Catmon Tennis Court In Malabon, Turned Into A Detention Facility For ECQ Violators

The National Capital Region Police Office under the leadership of PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS recognizes the indispensable support of the Local Government Units in its area of responsibility especially in its current fight against the CoViD 19 pandemic.

Amid the implementation of the extended enhanced community quarantine to curb the increasing number of persons infected by the deadly virus, the Philippine National Police faced a lot of challenges, one of which is the insufficiency of detention facilities to house EQC violators.

Towards this end, different LGU’s took their step in aid of the plights undergone by the PNP especially in terms of facilities.

In Malabon City, Mayor Honorable Antolin A. Oreta lll converted Catmon Tennis Court located along Justice Compound, Sanciangco Street, Brgy. Catmon, Malabon City into a detention facility to house violators of the ECQ related laws.

“We are very much thankful for the support of our stakeholders and LGU’s in our fight against the unseen. Now, more than ever, their support is indispensable for us to overcome the hurdles brought out by this pandemic,” said PMGEN SINAS.

The increasing number of ECQ violators continue to crowd detention cells all over the Metro. Among the commonly violated ECQ protocols include the following:

  1. Failure to wear face mask;
  2. Social distancing (especially in crowded places like markets);
  3. Violation of the curfew hours except those Authorized Persons to be Outside of Residence;
  4. Failure to bring Quarantine Pass while outside of residence; and
  5. Other ECQ related laws.

NCRPO with the active suppprt of different LGUs, Local City TF Covid, barangay officials, volunteers and other concerned agencies continuously go against ECQ violators to prevent the further spread of the CoViD 19 virus in the Metro.

“With the invigorated implementation of ECQ in the Metro and the presently ongoing e-inquest proceedings against violators, we guarantee stringent enforcement of ECQ related laws and ordinances. Hence, we plead cooperation among our citizens to please obey the law and stay home,” he added.
