THE Quezon City Police District (QCPD) will set up mobile police desks to 12 areas considered as "crime prone areas" to make crime reporting easier for the citizens.

In the project launching on Monday held in the QCPD office, QCPD director Chief Superintendent Richard Albano said the "desk on wheels" will be of help in simplifying the process of crime reporting wherein the people can report crimes or file complaints on the site immediately after the incident occurred.

The desk on wheels, which will operate 24/7, will look like a "mini-police office" with tables, chairs, a logbook and at least three police officers on each shift, two will conduct beat/foot patrolling with their area of responsibility while the other one will stay on desk.

Albano said the mobile police desks will be installed in Quirino Highway in Barangay Bagbag, Novaliches Quezon City; Edsa Cloverleaf near MRT Station in Barangay Apolonio Samson; SM City North Avenue on Edsa in Barangay Bagong Pagasa; Commonwealth Sandigan footbridge near Baptoda Terminal; in front of Cyber Pod Centris 3 on Edsa, Barangay Pinyahan Quezon City; University of Asia in front of Jollibee on E. Rodriguez Sr. Boulevard in Barangay Damayang Lagi; Nova Stop Terminal near Robinsons Mall on Quirino Highway, Barangay (village) Pasong Putik; LRT Anonas Station beside Metro Mall on Aurora Boulevard; in front of 7-11 at the corner of Mindanao and Tandang Sora Avenues in Barangay Tandang Sora; in front of Citibank near Mini Stop on C-5 Road in Barangay Bagumbayan; Aurora Boulevard corner Edsa near Cubao Elementary School and in front of PSBA on Aurora Boulevard.

The QCPD chief said that once the crime is reported, the officers on duty will conduct and record the initial investigation but will refer the complaint to a proper police station if the case is beyond their capacity.

However, Albano urged the public to report or take a photo if they would see policemen sleeping while on duty.

Albano said the effort is part of the anti-criminality campaign of the QCPD following the series killings in Quezon City. (Sunnex)
