Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Front Page -

Se­cu­rity plan for the ob­ser­vance of All Saints and All Souls Day is in place as the Ca­gayan de Oro City Po­lice Of­fice (Cocpo) is set to de­ploy more than a thou­sand po­lice­men to en­sure pub­lic safety and se­cu­rity in ceme­ter­ies.

Cocpo spokesper­son Su­per­in­ten­dent Mardy Hor­tillosa II said se­cu­rity mea­sures have al­ready been set up af­ter hold­ing co­or­di­na­tion meet­ing with vil­lage of­fi­cials, man­age­ment of pub­lic and pri­vate ceme­ter­ies, force mul­ti­pli­ers, and city dis­as­ter of­fice.

Hor­tillosa said the de­ploy­ment of po­lice per­son­nel for the “Oplan Kalu­luwa” will be­gin at 5:00 a.m. Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 31.

“Ang in­struc­tion sa atong city

direc­tor nga dili mo-pull out sa area hang­tod nga naa pay mga tawo sa ceme­ter­ies so posi­ble mga Novem­ber 3 or 4 mahu­man ang atong de­ploy­ment,”Hor­tillosa said.

“Ang atong de­ploy­ment is naay sa se­menteryo, mga as­sis­tance desk sa strate­gic ar­eas, naay re­serve force, quick re­sponse team ug sa matag po­lice sta­tion,”he added.

City po­lice direc­tor Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Nel­son Aganon has also in­structed his men to ob­serve the proper wear­ing of po­lice uni­form and be cau­tious and alert against sus­pi­cious per­son­al­i­ties and ac­tiv­i­ties.

Hor­tillosa said there is no spe­cific se­cu­rity threat for the ob­ser­vance but they are not let­ting their guards down as the alert level on pos­si­ble ter­ror­ist at­tacks has not been lifted yet.

The city po­lice is ex­pect­ing that thou­sands of peo­ple will visit the ceme­ter­ies to re­mem­ber their de­parted loved ones this time.

“Mas ex­pected nato nga daghan karon com­pared last year nga bag-ohay lang nahu­man ang gu­bat sa Marawi City,”Hor­tillosa said.

Hor­tillosa urged the pub­lic not to bring pro­hib­ited items in­side the ceme­ter­ies such as bladed weapons, cig­a­rettes, al­co­holic bev­er­ages, gam­bling ma­te­ri­als and sound sys­tem.

“Ka­tong maglimpyo buha­ton nila daan be­fore sa Oc­to­ber 31 kay ibawal na nato na af­ter­wards,”Hor­tillosa said.

“Sa karon ang atong fo­cus sa is mga bus ter­mi­nals,”he added. (Al­wen Salir­ing)
