PNP-Caraga records zero indiscriminate firing incident

by Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 2 (PIA) -- The Philippine National Police (PNP) Caraga Regional Office today assured the public that no policeman in the region have fired his or her firearms during the celebration of New Year’s eve.

PSSupt David Ombao, PNP-Caraga Directorial Staff and Chief of the Regional Intelligence Division confirmed this during the ceremonial removal of sealed gun muzzles of the PNP personnel held this morning at Camp Rafael Rodriguez, Libertad this city.

Supt. Ombao said all police stations in the region reported that no police officer has fired his or her issued firearms during New Year’s eve celebration.

This, according to Ombao is an indication that PNP’s campaign towards a peaceful celebration of New Year is successful and police officers region-wide adhered to the directives of PNP top officials.

Ombao also said the entire police force is grateful because as of today, only two firecracker-related incidents were recorded and said victims have only incurred minor injuries.

The official said the low incident rate due to firecrackers is the result of the massive campaigns of concerned government agencies like the PNP and Department of Health (DOH).

With this development, Ombao lauded the joint efforts of the public and private stakeholders to make the New Year’s celebration in Caraga Region more peaceful and injury-free.(PIA-Caraga)
