NCRPO launches new text, social media accounts

Citizens now have more ways to report crimes to police in Metro Manila as the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) launched 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.

According to Juego, the NCRPO's new contact information now include:
SMS: 0915-888-8181, 0999-901-8181 Twitter: @NCRPOReact Facebook: NCRPOReact
A tweet from the Twitter account of Garbo's office showed a photo of Garbo distributing the info stubs containing the new contact information to media and students.
