The National Capital Region Police Office Regional Director, PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS launched its newly tailored tactical campaign dubbed as “Shock and Awe” operations last November 6, 2019.

The “Shock and Awe” Operations is the conduct of security and safety coverage, police visibility and panelling operations which aims to thwart inimical plans and terrorist acts in support to the territorial units of NCRPO.

As the sustenance, management and implementation arm, the Explosive Ordnance Disposal of NCRPO is simultaneously conducting Shock and Awe Operations strategically in various vital installations of Metro Manila to include the lines of MRT and LRT stations, NAIA Terminals, Lake/Seaports, Bus terminal, Schools, Churches and Public and Private Establishments.

This Unit is in constant coordination with the different territorial and support units to strengthen the inter-operability operation particularly with the use of EOD and K9 capabilities in their mandated tasks The Shock and Awe Operations in public convergence, vital installation, terminals, trains and other places of all walks of life are being held consistently to prevent any terrorist acts, plans and intentions of any adversarial element for public security and safety.

Its implication for NCRPO’s anti criminality intends to support to day-to-day police activities and endeavours such as Oplan Kaluluwa, SEA GAMES, Traslacion, EDSA, SONA, and Visitation of different Embassies, VIPs or prominent personalities within NCR.

“This newly crafted operation establishes the ardent tenacity of NCRPO’s EOD as a special unit tasked with a distinct duty to be the fist that strikes at the very heart of criminality, illegal drugs and wayward ones who are uniquely suited and tactically trained for swift action and rapid response,” PMGEN SINAS remarked. ###
