by Robert E. Roperos

Butuan City (9 May) -- With nearly eight hours more before the voting precincts are set to open, PNP-Caraga for Regional Operations and Planning Division PSSupt Nestor Fajura said that the entire region in Caraga is all set and ready. The statement of assurance was made by the police officer in an interview conducted by PIA at Camp Rafael Rodriguez, Police Regional Office-13, this city.

According to Supt. Fajura, the entire police force has already made its manpower deployment to ensure peaceful and orderly elections in the entire region. Also, Fajura said their communication facilities and equipment were already tested and are now ready for tomorrow's use.

Fajura also reported that in as far as the delivery of PCOS machines is concerned, everything was made in order and were already given to respective BEIs. "The delivery of PCOS machines have been properly managed and that, as of today, no untoward incidents were reported," he said.

Further, he said during the delivery of the PCOS machines, barangay tanods and even members of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) were among those who complemented the police manpower to ensure security in the area.

In as far as peace and order is concerned, Fajura said three election-related violence were reported in Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Sur and in Surigao del Norte. However, he said "in terms of election-related violence, Caraga is still the lowest among all the regions in the country".

For areas reported to have NPAs visible, Fajura said the PNP and the AFP through the Philippine Army regularly conducted patrols to ensure that peace and order can be achieved during the election period.

With these developments, Fajura stressed that the entire Police Force in the region is following the command of Regional Director Lino Calingasan which goes "As police officers, you know what to do, and do it properly," Fajura disclosed. (PIA-Caraga) [top]
