DU­MAGUETE CITY — Se­cu­rity guards or “blue guards” in Du­maguete City and Ne­gros Ori­en­tal prov­ince have de­cided to or­ga­nize as a group to help in the an­ti­crim­i­nal­ity cam­paign of the po­lice.

In a meet­ing with Su­per­in­ten­dent Jonathan Pineda, chief of the Du­maguete City Po­lice chief, the heads of se­cu­rity guard agen­cies aired their in­ten­tions to help the po­lice main­tain peace and or­der.

Af­ter at­tend­ing a lec­ture by the po­lice on in­tel­li­gence in­for­ma­tion gath­er­ing, the se­cu­rity guards — num­ber­ing at least a thou­sand — said they will serve as force mul­ti­pli­ers to the po­lice.

As an ini­tial step, one se­cu­rity agency as­sured the po­lice it will set-up a ra­diobased com­mu­ni­ca­tion equip­ment at the po­lice sta­tion that will serve as com­mu­ni­ca­tion link with the se­cu­rity agen­cies.

In case crimes are com­mit­ted within the vicin­ity of es­tab­lish­ments be­ing guarded by the blue guards, they can send pic­tures through the Viber ac­count of the po­lice for im­me­di­ate re­sponse.
