Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde on Tuesday led the demolition of the West Crame, San Juan City Police Community Precinct (PCP) 6 on a sidewalk.

The move is in response to last week's call by President Rodrigo Duterte for local government officials to restore and remove public highways during his State of the Nation Address (SONA) to relieve traffic congestion.

However, Albayalde said Zamora assured him that he would provide the local police with a better location. He also ensured the community would not be hampered by the demolition of the precincts.

"You could just imagine, there is a PCP here and a gate of Camp Crame is located here. Walking distance only. If there is an emergency, they can come to Camp Crame," Albayalde said.

 “The PNP will provide the muscle, I am committing NCRPO to support the 17 local government executives (of Metro Manila) to effectively implement this order,” the NRCPO chief stressed.

Zamora reiterated that the DILG gave Metro Manila mayors 60 days to remove and ease public spaces during the discussion with city mayors and law enforcement agencies on Monday.

In a separate statement, PNP spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Bernard Banac said Albayalde will soon order other regional directors in police region offices to launch demolition operations to remove police community precincts which established in sidewalks and other public roads nationwide.
