CAMP CRAME, Quezon City (DWDD)
POLICE DIRECTOR GENERAL RONALD M DELA ROSA
Chief, Philippine National Police
First I would like to announce the suspension of all Permits to Carry Firearms Outside of Residence (PTCFOR) in the City of Manila for 48 hours, effective 8:00 AM of Sunday, January 8, 2017 until 8:00 AM of Tuesday, January 10, 2017, as an added security measure for the Feast of the Black Nazarene.
This suspension will have the effect similar to a Gun Ban imposed during elections and special events wherein only members of the military, police and law enforcement agencies while on duty and in uniform are authorized to bear firearms.
The NCRPO will strictly implement this prohibition. PNP-PIO / MCAG
