More than 200 police officers in Quezon City underwent a crash course for security response preparedness on Feb. 7 to assure proper handling of possible new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) cases in the city.

Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Director, Brig. Gen. Ronnie Montejo, said these policemen are included in the newly-composed Quick Response Teams (QRTs) which are formed as part of safety measures against the deadly virus which originated from China.

The teams, which are composed of 200 officers from QCPD’s District Mobile Force Battalion and 12 police stations, were required to undergo the crash course for proper orientation on what to do upon receipt of reports of Persons Under Investigation (PUI) or Persons Under Monitoring (PUM) relative to the coronavirus case.

“This is in response to the directive from the higher headquarters to take appropriate measures especially in terms of security response preparedness in responding to reports of 2019 NCoV suspected patients,” Montejo said.

According to Montejo, the whole-day crash course was facilitated by medical personnel from the National Capital Region Police (NCRPO), along with the District Health Service, and the QCPD Crime Laboratory.

“I instructed our District Health Service to work in close coordination with the different QRTs to help render appropriate measures on suspected PUIs or PUMs,” the QCPD chief added.

Montejo also urged the public to immediately inform police officers through hotline on any issues regarding the 2019-nCoV.
