Negros Occidental Provincial Spokesperson Lt. Abegael Donasco said the province has sufficient number of police personnel to be deployed in 698 voting centers on the election day.
She added that there will be two more members of the police force to be assigned in each center.
Earlier, NOCPPO said they might be seeking for an augmentation from the PRO 6 since tnumber of police officers deployed seems not enough.
Donasco however clarified yesterday that they found ways to make sure that the number of policemen will be sufficient to ensure the security and peace on 9 May 2022.
She added that out of six Provincial Police Offices and two police offices in western visayas, only the Negros Occidental Police Provincial office was not able to get support from other stations.
The NOCPPO also has a 2000-plus strong Quick Reaction Force to help with the security issues on D-Day.
