During the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ), the Chief of the National Capital Region Police Office, PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS observed that social distancing is hardly observed by several authorized persons outside their residence.
In this regard, PMGEN SINAS ordered the implementation of Social Distancing Patrol in every station. The Social Distancing Patrol pertains to the deployment of 2-4 personnel, equipped with sticks and tasked to conduct patrolling in the markets or area where people gather. The maximized presence of personnel in proper uniform, facemasks and gloves will be called Social Distancing Ambassadors.
This initiative aims to minimize the contagion of this virus especially in places of convergence and ultimately ensure the continuous delivery of extended police service to the entire Metro Manila.
