JTF-NCR to help secure PRRD’s 4th SONA

By Priam Nepomuceno  


MANILA — The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)’s Joint Task Force-National Capital Region (JTF-NCR) will augment security preparations made by the police for President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s fourth State of the Nation Address (SONA) on July 22.

This was disclosed by Col. Noel Detoyato, AFP public affairs office chief when asked what security preparations the military will be implementing for the SONA.

“(The) AFP will be supporting the Philippine National Police in the SONA security preparation and implementation. The AFP unit dedicated to supporting the PNP is the JTF-NCR,” he said in a message to the Philippine News Agency Friday.

JTF-NCR is the military formation tasked to protect Metro Manila from all forms of threats.

Earlier, the National Capital Region Police Office said that it will be deploying around 15,000 police officers and auxiliaries for July 22.

This figure includes contingents from JTF-NCR and other law enforcement, traffic and disaster response agencies. (PNA)
