Inaprubahan na nitong Marso 17 ang simula ng work-from-home arrangement para sa mga non-uniformed personnel ng PNP sa NHQ sa Camp Crame dahil sa tumataas na kaso ng COVID-19 sa NCR.
May pagtaas na rin ng bilang ng mga kaso sa ranggo ng PNP.
Inatasan na ni PNP OIC Police LtGen Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar ang lahat ng opisina sa NHQ na magsagawa ng assessment kung paano ipatutupad ang modified work arrangement nang hindi naaapektuhan ang kanilang serbisyo sa publiko.
Nauna nang sinabi na gagamitin ng PNP ang Kiangan Building kasama na ang Provident Funds at PSSLAI bilang quarantine facilities para sa PNP personnel.
Tinitingnan na rin kung paano gagawing posible ang parehong work arrangement para sa kanilang uniformed personnel.
“In as much as we wanted to extend the same work arrangement for our uniformed personnel, the nature of our job makes it difficult to implement the same because aside from our regular law enforcement duties, we are also engaged in other functions that include the enforcement of the quarantine protocols such as the recent implementation of the uniform curfew hours in Metro Manila. However, there is already an ongoing assessment on alternative work arrangement for our uniformed personnel,” saad ng OIC.
May sarili namang diskresyon ang NCRPO at regional offices ng PNP kung ipapatupad din ng mga ito ang katulad na arrangement.
Tinitingnan na rin ng NHQ kung anong tamang gawin sa bilang ng mga kliyenteng gumagamit ng frontline services gaya ng pagkuha ng police clearance at permits.
Muling pinaalalahanan ng OIC ang lahat sa istriktong pagsunod sa minimum health safety protocol sa lahat ng pagkakataon, gaya ng pagsusuot ng face mask at face shield.
Magsasagawa ang PNP ng random at surprise red teaming operations sa buong bansa para siguruhin ang pagsunod dito.
