GenSan police well-prepared for the holiday season

By Cathy Apelacio

General Santos City (14 December) -- In preparation for the coming holiday, the Philippine National Police here has tightened its implementation of security measures to ensure that the city is business as usual and the public is safe to celebrate Christmas.

Police City Director Alfredo Toroctocon said the police would be 24-hour visible making the rounds of the city during the holiday season.

He said he is anticipating that there will be more influx of people in GenSan. "People who have been away abroad, or have been into school to some other places would surely be taking advantage of the holiday and would be going home to be with their families and loved ones," Toroctocon added.

While it is has been a standard operating procedure by the police and even the military to intensify security measure during significant holiday breaks, the city police have been extra cautious to make sure that every strategic points and entries are safeguarded well.

Incidents can happen anytime. We cannot afford to relax during this time. It's hard to predict when the enemy strikes, the police pointed out saying they are ready to counter any plans of attack by terrorists.

The police said additional policemen would be deployed to keep a watchful eye on possible areas that may be used as entry points by terrorists or any other unscrupulous groups.

The police are also intensifying ties and collaborations with the military, community, media and other groups of civil society. (PIA-SarGen) [top]
