Camp Col Romeo A Abendan, Zamboanga City - The Police Regional Office 9 has initiated the conduct of stress debriefing management seminar to PNP personnel who are deployed as frontliners at the different quarantine checkpoints and control points in the city held at PRO9 Multi-Purpose Hall, Camp Col Romeo A Abendan, Mercedes, Zamboanga City.
PBGEN FROILAN F QUIDILLA, Regional Director, PRO9 said the activity is in line with PRO9’s best practice dubbed as “Salva Pensamiento” (saving the minds), wherein the target of this project are the frontliners who have been deployed in the different ECQ checkpoints with an objective of assessing the psychological status of each personnel and instituting measures that would enable them to cope up with the stress and challenges that they encounter during their tour of duty.
“The prolonged exposure of our personnel in the different quarantine checkpoints and control points all over the region will certainly affect the behaviour of our frontliners and inhibit them to perform their respective task properly”, he added.
This best practice “Salva Pensamiento” is an initiative of the Regional Director with the purpose of ensuring the health and welfare of the personnel especially the frontliners given the risks of the present pandemic as they have direct exposure to the virus. The session is done in coordination with the pyscholigist and other personnel of the Regional Health Service 9.
