MANILA-- The Philippine National Police (PNP) has extended its support to the deployed policemen committed for security and public safety operations for the 30th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit 2017 which is being held from Wednesday to Saturday (April 26-29) at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City.
Chief Supt. Noel Baraceros, ASEAN Task Force 2017 operations officer, on Wednesday ensured that all the deployed police force is well taken care of.
The deployed police personnel were provided with enough water supply, proper billeting, hygiene kits, medicines and other logistical needs.
