The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) deployed over 4,000 police officers to key terminals and cemeteries in Metro Manila two days before the predicted evacuation of passengers for the All Saints and All Souls Day holidays.
Sinas said police are working closely with other stakeholders to ensure public safety during the holidays, including the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).
