• Roxas to NCRPO: setup checkpoints


    Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel ‘Mar’ Roxas has ordered the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) to set-up checkpoints for taxis and commuter vans to help ensure passenger safety in Metro Manila. Deputy Director General Marcelo Garbo said the directive was prompted by reports of alleged attempts to abduct children and the spate of robberies done by taxi drivers who either spray sleeping chemicals on their passengers or simply declare a hold-up outright. Garbo also instructed police officers to be courteous when approaching drivers as well as passengers to prevent unnecessary panic.
