The Philippine National Police (PNP) will be extending P5,000 financial assistance to all its personnel whose houses were damaged or were submerged in floodwaters during the onslaught of typhoon “Ulysses.”
There were initially a total of 746 PNP personnel who were severely affected by the typhoon especially in Bicol, Southern Tagalog, and Cagayan Valley region.
“We will be giving P5,000 for each of the policemen affected. This will be a form of assistance for those whose houses were damaged or were submerged in floodwater,” Sinas said.
“This will help them start repairing their houses because house repairs would mean that you have to spend money for the materials,” he added.
He said they also provided relief goods to the families of the affected PNP personnel.
The P5,000 assistance, according to Sinas, came from the PNP funds.
The PNP is currently assessing the extent of the damage wrought by “Ulysses” on police stations, police equipment, and properties of their personnel.
