Clients applying for documentary requirements from police regulatory and front-line offices will be reduced to a maximum of 950 per day, according to the Philippine National Police (PNP).

In a statement, PNP Chief, Gen. Archie Gamboa, said the Administrative Support to Covid-19 Operations Task Force (ASCOTF), headed by deputy chief for administration, Lt. Gen. Camilo Cascolan, recommended the new measure to restrict the movement of civilians inside Camp Crame to minimize the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

Gamboa directed the PNP Headquarters Support Service (PNP-HSS) to strictly observe the rules and regulations under streamlined operations starting Monday, to protect the camp from further human-to-human transmission and resurgence of Covid-19 cases.

“We see that there’s a need to adopt more measures and protocols designed to extensively reduce, if not eliminate, person-to-person transactions inside Camp Crame, particularly among the many PNP front-line services to contain the threat of Covid-19 resurgence inside Camp Crame,” he said.

In a separate advisory, HSS Director, Brig. Gen. Alexander Sampaga, said the following front-line offices and services will cater to a specific number of clients per day, for a total of 950 clients: One Stop Shop for Security Guards License (250 clients); Firearms and Explosives Office OSS (200); FEO Heritage (50); Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agencies (150); Permit to Carry Firearms Outside of Residence (50); Retirement and Benefits Administration Service (50); Public Safety Savings and Loan Association, Inc., Crame Branch (100); and Armed Forces of the Philippines Savings and Loan Association, Inc., Crame Branch (100).

“Even under general community quarantine (GCQ), the front-line servicing units of the National Headquarters are always on track to serve our thousands of clients that need police requirements for their employment, license, and others,” Gamboa said.

Meanwhile, curfew hours inside the National Headquarters will still be implemented from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. as part of the preventive measures against the contagion.

All Camp Crame-based offices and units have been advised to coordinate with the HSS to set a schedule of disinfection and decontamination activities.
