This was based on the results of a field-training exercise conducted with some 500 highway patrol units from the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) on May 31.

For the exercise, police authorities drafted a crime scene along Kalayaan Avenue corner C-5 Road in Makati City where they issued an alarm to PNP-HPG units in Metro Manila via telephone call to Patrol 117.

The NCRPO-HPG deployed several motorcycle-mounted policemen and mobile patrol cars that responded to the scene.

"Said activity ended after a short debriefing with very satisfactory results," an official HPG report obtained by TopGear.com.ph said.

According to HPG officials, similar field-training exercises will be conducted on a regular basis to further improve their response time to reported crimes.
