• Official: Security plan for elections ready

- BY RHODA GRACE B. SARON

THE Davao City Police Office (DCPO) has laid out its security plan for the upcoming elections.

Major Teresita P. Gaspan, DCPO spokespers­on, said part of the plan is to augment the unit with police trainees from the Regional Training Center 11 - Philippine Public Safety College.

"Ready na ang security plan. In fact, nakalatag na. Naa man gamay i-fine tune nalang gyud, ready na para sa election," Gaspan said, adding that the city is lucky because there is no area of concern.

She said the augmentati­on unit will be pulled out anytime and be deployed to the police precincts to help secure their respective areas.

"Tanan ipang-pull out to serve during the local and national elections. During the election, full alert man atong status ana. Kahit naka- schooling, nakaleave, walang pwede na hindi maka-serve, only for emergency cases. Expected tanan mo duty, mag-serve during election,” Gaspan added.

She assured that personnel of the office will remain apolitical and are determined to enforce the law to ensure orderly and peaceful elections.
