June 2, 2017, UTOPIA SECURITY & SAFETY SOLUTIONS INC. represented by our Chairman, Col. Bonifacio, including other Private Security Agencies in Metro Manila, turned over high-powered security firearms to PNP Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agencies (SOSIA) in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
PDir Camilo Pancratius Cascolan, Director, Directorate for Operations, and PCSUPT Jose Mario Espino, Chief of SOSIA, received the firearms from the representatives of the security agencies for safekeeping.
This recall and turnover is in compliance with the Presidential Instructions to limit security agencies to the use of shotguns and handguns, and is a pro-active security measure to deny the so-called “enemies of the state” an opportunity to get hold of these firearms through raids/agaw-armas victimizing unsuspecting security guards.
A total of 386 high-powered rifles are already in the custody of the PNP from security agencies nationwide.
