PRO5 set to deploy team for November APEC summit anytime

LEGAZPI CITY—The Police Regional Office 5 is ready to send members of its Civil Disturbance Management Unit for the APEC Summit, a top official of the office said Wednesday.



Police Insp. Malu Calubaquib, PRO5 spokesperson, made the announcement after what, she said, was an inspection and thorough evaluation of the troop by Police Chief Supt. Edgar Layese Layon, Sub-Task Group commander of Public Order and Safety of the Philippine National Police.

Calubaquib said the CDM unit of the PRO5 is prepared to be deployed to Metro Manila anytime, depending on the order of the PNP leadership, for the APEC Summit on Nov. 18-19.

The top-level conference will be attended by 21 heads of states.

The PRO5 CDM unit is composed of 806 male troopers from the mainland provinces of Albay, Sorsogon, Camarines Sur and Camarines Norte.

The contingent is divided into two battalions – one is headed by Police Supt. Benjamin Balimbing Jr and the other by Police Supt. Elsid Roldan.

It has three sub-groups composed of the CDM, medical and investigation.

Calubaquib said each member of the CDM team has specialized capabilities and is physically and mentally able to perform the task of safeguarding the participants in the summit.

The PRO5 special team members will bring with them their complete CDM equipment and paraphernalia.

Layon told them to also bring gas masks and personal belongings for the mission.

The Bicol CDM unit will join their counterparts from Regions 6 and 7 in maintaining public order and safety.

Calubaquib said PRO5 always sends an augmentation force to the PNP based on the directive of its leadership like during the visit of the Holy Father and regional religious activities like the Peñafrancia Festival in Naga City and Daragang Magayon Festival in Albay.

In this connection, Police Chief Supt. Augusto Marquez Jr. PNP Bicol regional director, assured that this type of augmentation action of PRO5, will not sacrifice its strength in the region at the cost of the security of the Bicolanos.

Marquez said this is just a portion of the 7,500-strong PRO5 personnel.(by Nancy Ibo Mediavillo, PNA)
