PNP’s YEARLY MUZZLE TAPING of FIREARMS

 

          The PNP shall celebrate Christmas and New Year in silence, hence, the Pampanga PPO under the leadership of PSSUPT OSCAR D ALBAYALDE conducted the yearly muzzle taping of the issued firearms of the personnel from this office to support the government’s efforts to thwart the loss of lives and damage to properties due to indiscriminate firing.

          Muzzle taping has been practiced by the PNP for the past Christmas and New Year celebrations. It aims to stop all PNP personnel from firing their issued guns during the holidays. This will also challenge the police force to impose tighter security measures and public assistance without the use of their firearms.

          Being the forefront of enforcing the law, the PNP will not be lenient in meeting out punishment to those who will use their firearms during the holidays especially to its own people. Heavy sanctions shall be enforced to those PNP personnel proven to have violated this directive. Appropriate sanctions will be ensured to those individuals who will be firing their guns indiscriminately and harming others during the process.

          PD ALBAYALDE guarantees the public that they need not worry because the Pampanga Police will provide unfailing service this Yuletide. The PNP will ensure that the people will get to celebrate Christmas and New Year peacefully and without the fear of stray bullet hitting/harming them and their properties.

         Furthermore, the Pampanga police personnel and its units will remain on alert status to maintain peace and order as well as provide public safety and assistance during the holidays.
