AFP, PNP tighten security at opening of classes

Zamboanga City (1 June) -- The AFP and the PNP have strengthen its force to tighten its security measures as classes have once again started for pupils and students for calendar year 2009-2010 effective Sunday in most of the schools and universities nationwide.

Several lawless groups will take advantage of their plans especially to the school kids and students since they are the easy preys for their recruitment and kidnapping.

Major Gamal S Hayudini PAF, Commander of the 4th Civil Relations Group, Civil Relations Service, Armed Forces of the Philippines said that the students are the primary targets of the lawless groups especially the left leaning organizations in their recruitment as most of the youths today are radicals and idealistic.

"More so, they are also preys of the kidnap for ransom groups especially school children just like what happened in Brgy Sunrise, Isabela City, Basilan last February 25 this year where a school boy was kidnapped even during peak hours of the day though the perpetrators failed due to the immediate response of the [civilians], the military and the police in the area," the official said.

Nevertheless, the AFP and the PNP have strengthened its security measures to protect the students and the teachers from atrocities especially kidnapping in their respective schools and in turn, they must seriously be concerned of their security and be one with the authorities against these criminals.

"Your armed forces and the police are continuously doing its mandate to safeguard lives and properties of the populace. Their 24/7 visibility in the city is an indication that their selfless service toward the people they are protecting will remain their top priority," Hayudini added. (4CRG, CRSAFP/PIA9-BST) [top]
