Suc­cess­ful Oplan Un­das op­er­a­tion lauded

Sun.Star Baguio - - Front Page -

BAGUIO City Mayor Mauri­cio Do­mo­gan com­mended all sec­tors of the city that were re­spon­si­ble in the suc­cess­ful OplanUn­das in the city dur­ing the com­mem­o­ra­tion of All Saint’s and All souls Day on No­vem­ber 1 and 2, re­spec­tively.

The lo­cal chief ex­ec­u­tive claimed the zero crime dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion of All Saint’s Day is a liv­ing tes­ta­ment that res­i­dents and vis­i­tors alike have be­come vig­i­lant in en­sur­ing the pro­tec­tion of life and prop­erty when­ever they are out of their homes and when vis­it­ing their de­parted love ones in the dif­fer­ent pub­lic and pri­vate ceme­ter­ies around the city.

While the num­ber of peo­ple who vis­ited the dif­fer­ent burial grounds in the city de­clined due to the ef­fects of the on­slaught of Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Rosita, he claimed that there was or­der in the flow of traf­fic and the main­te­nance of peace and or­der in the pub­lic and pri­vate ceme­ter­ies around the city.

“We are sat­is­fied

over the prepa­ra­tions done by our law en­forcers and our vol­un­teers in en­sur­ing the or­derly flow of traf­fic in­side and out­side the dif­fer­ent ceme­ter­ies. We also con­grat­u­late our vol­un­teers who spent their pre­cious time as­sist­ing our law en­forcers in main­tain­ing law and or­der round the city in­stead of be­ing with their fam­i­lies in vis­it­ing their de­parted love ones buried in the dif­fer­ent burial grounds in the city,” Do­mogn stressed.

Last year, there were over 40,000 peo­ple who vis­ited the dif­fer­ent pub­lic and pri­vate ceme­ter­ies lo­cated in the dif­fer­ent parts of the city dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion of All Saint’s Day but for this year, there were only a to­tal of over 33,000 who spent time vis­it­ing their love ones in all the eight ceme­ter­ies around the city dur­ing the said cel­e­bra­tion.

He pointed out words are not enough to ex­press the grat­i­tude of the lo­cal gov­ern­ment to the peo­ple who sac­ri­ficed their time, ef­fort and re­sources just to en­sure the suc­cess­ful im­ple­men­ta­tion of the ac­tiv­i­ties pre­pared by the con­cerned of­fices for OplanUn­das.

Ac­cord­ing to Do­mo­gan, the part­ner­ship between the lo­cal gov­ern­ment and the pri­vate sec­tor as well as the vol­un­teers should be en­hanced in the fu­ture stag­ing of ma­jor ac­tiv­i­ties in the city so that law and or­der could be achieved thereby en­sur­ing the safety of the res­i­dents and vis­i­tors alike.

Do­mo­gan lauded the per­son­nel of the Baguio City Po­lice Of­fice (BCPO) who were able to main­tain the needed po­lice vis­i­bil­ity in the dif­fer­ent ceme­ter­ies round the city that con­trib­uted in de­ter­ring the oc­cur­rence of un­to­ward in­ci­dents that could have com­pro­mised the safety of life and limb.
