MisOr-PPO ac­ti­vates ‘Lig­tas Paskuhan 2018’

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - News -

With Christ­mas just around the corner, the Misamis Ori­en­tal pro­vin­cial po­lice of­fice (MisOrPPO) has is­sued safety tips to warn res­i­dents against crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties that com­monly spike dur­ing the yule­tide sea­son.

The po­lice’s in­for­ma­tion cam­paign called “Lig­tas Paskuhan 2018” and which was posted in so­cial me­dia sites enu­mer­ates safety mea­sures for res­i­dents to avoid be­ing vic­tim­ized by crim­i­nals and law­less el­e­ments in malls, mar­kets, ready-to-wear stores and other ar­eas where peo­ple stormed to buy pre­sents and other items for Christ­mas.

Po­lice said wal­lets should be placed in a tight pocket or front pocket; sep­a­rate the cash and other ex­pen­sive be­long­ings so pick­pock­ets and snatch­ers could not get ev­ery­thing at once.

“Kini aron ma­likayan nga makuha tanan kung kita mahi­mong bik­tima sa kuotan o snatch­ers,” po­lice said.

Au­thor­i­ties also re­mind the pub­lic to avoid show­ing big amount of cash which could en­tice bad el­e­ments to com­mit crime.

Ev­ery­one is also urged to as much as pos­si­ble avoid wear­ing ex­pen­sive jew­el­ries and us­ing of cell­phones.

“Paghu­man og bayad, ihapa sa atuban­gan sa ka­hera ang sukli aron sayon mureklamo panan­gli­tan nasayop sa paghatag sa sukli,” the re­minder said.

Adults were also ad­vised to as much as pos­si­ble avoid bring­ing along chil­dren or put an iden­ti­fi­ca­tion on them so they can be eas­ily found in case they are lost.

Po­lice also said ev­ery­one should know the first aid sta­tion or the PNP’s as­sis­tance desks in case of emer­gen­cies.

Other po­lice of­fices and po­lice sta­tions across the re­gion have also is­sued re­minders on their re­spec­tive so­cial me­dia pages. Al­wen Salir­ing
