No more social gatherings for policemen.

Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Archie Gamboa has prohibited cops from attending social gatherings amid the strict lockdown measures in some parts of the country.

Gamboa, in a series of tweets on May 13, said policemen are not exempted from government’s ban on mass gatherings during the quarantine.

“The PNP is not exempt from strict rules on mass gathering and I am directing all unit commanders to prohibit any and all social gatherings,” he tweeted.

Gamboa also ordered a probe into the birthday celebration of National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Police Major General Debold Sinas. The police investigation was ordered following allegations social distancing rule and ban on mass gatherings were ignored during the birthday gathering of Sinas.

“I have instructed the Inspector General of the Internal Affairs Service to initiate a formal inquiry into the NCRPO incident,” Gamboa said.

He told cops to follow the strict health protocols enforced by the government.

“I strongly reiterate the strict observance of all public health protocols and all biosafety standards by all personnel at all times,” he said.
