NCPO stages simex on counter-terrorism

A string of simulation exercises on counter-terrorism and other anti-criminal activities were conducted by the mobile force company (MFC) of the Naga City Police Office (NCPO) to boost its performance level in operational readiness and capability.


Staged at the Metro Naga Sports Complex in Barangay Pacol, NCPO operatives engaged last July 18 in simulation exercises on different drills and workouts aimed at enhancing the conduct of their operations against assaults and aggressions by lawless elements.


The conduct of exercises by the MFC came after it was nominated as a contender in the search for the country’s Best of Best City Mobile Force Companies.


The exercises, which are being graded by police officials from Camp Crame headed by BGen. Andrew Cayad, form part of the validation and evaluation being conducted by Philippine National Police (PNP). Among the participants in the nationwide competition are MFCs in Baguio and Davao cities which also obtained good grades in previous exercises.


Cayad is the executive officer of the Directorate for Intelligence and team leader of the evaluators.


Aside from counter-terrorism strategies, the evaluators also looked at the capability of the city MFC’s performance in manning a high-risk checkpoint, conducting police counter-insurgency operations, managing the peace and order situations during rallies and protests, and arresting an armed suspect or criminal.
