PNP Maritime Group to police territorial waters

ALABEL, Sarangani (November 9, 2021) – Philippine National Police-Maritime Group (PNP-MG) Brig. Gen. John Mitchell Jamili (left) explains during his courtesy call on Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon on October 27 that the Maritime Group is one of the national operational support groups of the PNP that is tasked to perform all police functions over the territorial waters of the Philippines, including the protection of marine life. “We are anchored to it. What we are doing is to preserve and protect our marine and aquatic resources,” said Jamili. The Maritime Group “is tasked to conduct a coastal seaborne patrol on a weekly basis”. He also said that the higher headquarters has directed the regional chiefs to coordinate with the different local government units for the construction of Regional Maritime Units (RMU) and maritime police stations.
