BCPO gears up for Yule­tide sea­son

Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

THE Ba­colod City Po­lice Of­fice (BCPO) is gear­ing up for the hol­i­day sea­son as po­lice­men will be de­ployed in dif­fer­ent ar­eas of con­ver­gence.

Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Fran­cisco Ebreo, act­ing di­rec­tor of BCPO said the pub­lic can ex­pect po­lice pres­ence in shop­ping malls, trans­port ter­mi­nals, mar­kets, air­ports, and sea­ports, among oth­ers.

Ebreo said po­lice­men will also be as­signed in churches dur­ing dawn masses or “Sim­bang Gabi” to pro­vide se­cu­rity for church-go­ers.

BCPO has enough per­son­nel to main­tain peace and or­der in the city dur­ing Christ­mas and New Year’s Day, the Ba­colod top cop said.

“We are not ex­pect­ing ad­di­tional per­son­nel from Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice (Pro)–west­ern Visayas for the Yule­tide sea­son but if they will pro­vide us with more forces, we wel­come it,” he added.

Ebreo as­sured the pub­lic that po­lice­men will be vis­i­ble in places where there is an in­flux of peo­ple.

Po­lice as­sis­tance desks will also be sta­tioned in dif­fer­ent ar­eas as part of the city po­lice force’s se­cu­rity mea­sures for the hol­i­day./gym
