PNP-12 remains on high alert

by CT Apelacio

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Jan 9 (PIA) -- The police in Region 12 remains on high alert following the series of bomb threats in the region that started even before the New Year.

Authorities here have successfully detonated an improvised explosive device (IED) at 2:00P.M. Sunday (Jan 8) after a civilian reported to the police a package left unattended in Naranjita Street, this city.

Police said the discovered IED is made of 81mm mortar.

Police are continuously investigating the incident checking if it has any similarity with the IED found Wednesday (Jan 4) in Tantangan, South Cotabato.

Chief Superintendent Felicisimo Khu, chief of the Directorate for Integrated Police Operation (DIPO) in Western Mindanao appealed to the public to be keen and watchful of their surroundings for any suspicious-looking individuals in their neighborhood.

In Sarangani, a number of people panicked on Thursday (Jan 5) after a report reached them that two IEDs were to be brought to one of the towns of the province.

The IEDs were believed to be coming from Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat.

To avoid any untoward incident, the police have immediately tightened security in the province especially in Alabel town by increasing police visibility and deploying additional police to man the highway checkpoints and other parameters within the area.

Governor Migs Dominguez has ordered the provincial police to be vigilant and secure all possible entry and exit points in the province that may be served as gateway by the terrorists.

He also urged the police to observe a “proactive measure” all the time and to keep monitoring the movement of possible criminal group that may be involved in terrorists’ activities. (CTA/PIA General Santos City)
