The Philippine National Police's Civil Security Group extension office at the SM Mall of Asia

CALOOCAN CITY, Jan. 21 (PIA) -- The Philippine National Police (PNP) Civil Security Group (CSG) on Wednesday has opened a one-stop shop extension office at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City capable of providing police clearance, licenses such as to own and possess firearms, and drug and neuro-tests to their clients in the security sector.

PNP Chief General Debold Sinas said the opening of an PNP CSG extension office is part of the ongoing efforts to adjust to the new normal brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sinas said the one-stop-shop will help decongest police camps and make the service more accessible to the public.

"This signing of the MOA [memorandum of agreement] and opening of the CSG's satellite office here at SM MOA is in line with the decentralization program of our licensing particularly on the application for LTOPF firearms registration and renewal of license to exercise (the) security profession," he said.

"As part of the PNP's anti-criminality program we have intensified our campaign on 'Oplan Katok' and constantly reminding our firearms holders to process and secure appropriate permits and licenses and registration to avoid inconvenience and confiscation of their firearms," he added. (PIA NCR)
