0 751

A community precinct of the San Juan City police was demolished Tuesday for being a road obstruction.

Philippine National Police chief General Oscar Albayalde, National Capital Region Police Office chief Major General Guillermo Eleazar and San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora led the demolition of Police Community Precinct (PCP) 6 along West Crame Street

A tanod outpost and the barangay disaster management council’s office, which were beside the police station, were also torn down.

Eleazar said they decided to prioritize the demolition of the police station since cops would take the lead in road clearing operations.

The Department of Interior and Local Government has given Metro Manila mayors 60 days to clear road and streets of obstructions.

“By demolishing this Police Community Precinct, our personnel will have the moral ascendancy to demolish other structures that were also erected in public spaces,” Eleazar said.
