Pangasinan peaceful during All Saints Day, says police

By Danny O Sagun

Dagupan City (02 November) -- After earlier enjoying a family reunion during the barangay and sangguniang kabataan elections, Pangasinenses enjoyed another holiday yesterday as they remembered their dead loved ones.

The celebration was generally peaceful, according to the Pangasinan provincial police office.

Uniformed policemen were strategically stationed in busy road intersections and entrance of cemeteries while others patrolled the premises, it was observed.

Sr. Supt. Rosueto Ricaforte, provincial director, assigned a supervisor for police stations in every congressional district to ensure that his directives at making the All Saints’ Day celebration peaceful and orderly are strictly followed.

The campaign against carrying deadly weapons and liquor ban was strictly implemented, said Supt. Harris Fama, deputy provincial director for operations.

The Lingayen police confiscated one bladed weapon and a bottle of wine, while the Mangaldan police got eight bladed weapons including three pieces of screw driver and 40 pieces of firecrackers. Twelve bottles of wine were confiscated by the Urdaneta City police, while three bladed weapons yielded in Tayug. Two items of horn (wangwang) were confiscated from Villasis.

Except for an intoxicated man creating trouble in Lingayen who was eventually nabbed and pacified by the barangay peacekeeping action teams, there was no election-related violence during the celebration, he said. (PIA Pangasinan)
