President Rodrigo Duterte has declared war against crime and illegal drugs.
Criminals would now surely take a second thought before committing crimes. Police officers are now everywhere, in full gear, to maintain peace and security.
Through the command and leadership of Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, PNP launches what they call "Spot Checking" program where cops would board buses to check on the situation and imrpove police presence.
The operation has reached social media and netizens are applauding this stark effort of the new administration.
Below are comments from select Facebook users:
"Baka sabihin ng iba ako ay kontra ng kontra sa programa ng Duterte. THIS ONE IS APPROVED!"
(Before someone would say that I am always against Duterte's program, I would say this one is approved!)
"I'm so proud sa mga kapulisan sana patuloy na yan."
(I'm proud of our police, hoping they will continue what they are doing.)
"Masarap sumakay ng bus pag may pulis lalo n kung gabi. Feeling safe."
(It's good to ride a bus now even at night time. Feeling safe.)

"Wow sana kahit matapos ang term nila ganyan pa din sa mga susunod na administrasyon para sa atin lahat ito....Ang tunay na pagbabago. Goodluck po sa lahat ng alagad ng batas, kay pnp chief dela rosa at ating mahal na pangulo God bless you all."
(Wow hoping that even after they finished their term the next administration will also do the same for us. The real change. Good luck to all law enforcers, PNP chief Dela Rosa at to our beloved president. God bless you all.)
"Wow!!! Napakaganda ang ginagawa ng bagong pamahalaan ngayon."
(Wow!!! The new administration is doing very well.)
"Eto na talaga ang pagbabago...sana humaba ang term ni du30 para naman maramdaman ng mamamayan ang ginhawa sa pinas..mabuhay ka digong."
(Change has come indeed. I hope Duterte's term will be extended so our fellow countrymen will see improvement in the Philippines. Long live Digong.)
