NCR police launch new SMS, social media accounts

Filipino citizens now have more ways to report crimes to police in Metro Manila, following the launch of new text numbers and social media accounts.

Metro Manila police head Chief Superintendent Marcelo Garbo Jr. said this will mean less physical activity for complainants in a crime, radio dzBB's Glen Juego reported.

"We launch (the) social media account to lessen the physical activities of the complainant," Garbo said, according to the report.

The NCRPO's new contact information now include:

SMS: 0915-888-8181, 0999-901-8181 Twitter: @NCRPOReact Facebook: NCRPOReact

If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea.
