More than 14,000 police personnel are currently deployed in the National Capital Region to secure the campaign of senatorial candidates and party-list groups, and to prepare security measures for the campaign period of local candidates.

“The next few months are going to be critical. Top candidates will be active in all areas of Metro Manila as they start wooing residents,” said National Capital Region Police Office director Guillermo Eleazar.

The campaign period comes with strict additional rules set by the Commission on Elections, Eleazar said.

“For the campaign period of local candidates, prohibited acts include appointment or hiring of new employees, creation of new positions, salary increases, and release or disbursement of public funds, among others,” he said.

“These restrictions are in addition to certain acts already prohibited during the election period, which include the gun ban and the use of security personnel or bodyguards by those seeking positions, unless authorized by Comelec,” Eleazar said.

The gun ban is in effect until June 12, 2019.

“We will also increase the frequency of checkpoints in Metro Manila to deter criminal minds from executing their evil designs. I have strict orders to our commanders in the field to observe proper procedures and professionalism when conducting checkpoints,” Eleazar said.

He said the public may report disrespectful and abusive police personnel to the nearest police station or at the NCRPO.

The campaign period for local candidates, such as governors, mayors, vice mayors, and members of the House of Representatives, begins on March 29.
