DCPO bests Cotabato, Baguio, Cebu for bomb/K9 unit search

THE DAVAO City Police Office (DCPO) was awarded the Best City Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Canine Unit (CECU) for 2022 during the 7th-anniversary celebration of the PNP EOD/K9 Group on April 5, 2023, at Camp BGen Rafael T. Crame, Quezon City.

Col. Albert Magno, acting director of the PNP EOD/K9 group, signed the plaque of recognition for the national tilt.

DCPO spokesperson Catherine De La Rey said the award made the whole DCPO proud.

“Very proud ang Davao City Police Office sa pagpangulo sa atong City Director nga si Police Col. Alberto Lupaz sa among award nga na-receive sa Davao City Explosive Ordnance and Canine Unit kay mao ni sya ang nahimo nga best EOD all over the Philippines (The Davao City Police Office headed by City Director Police Col. Alberto Lupaz is very proud of the award received by the Davao City Explosive Ordnance and Canine Unit for being the best EOD nationwide),” Dela Rey said.

She said organizers cited the Awareness of Bomb that Kills Life and Destroys Property (ABKD) as the best practice of the CECU. The initiative consists of symposiums on bomb awareness.

The Davao CECU also secured the inaugurations of Vice President Inday Sara Duterte, Mayor Sebastian Duterte, and other national and international events.

Sila ang in-charge sa tanan nga mga events sa dakbayan sa Davao, especially the big events, two hours before our activity, sila gyud ang mga mag-check kung naa ba’y bomba or wala, mag-paneling sila gamit ang canine dog para i-make sure nga safe and secure ang lugar (They are in charge of all the events of the city of Davao, especially two hours before our activity, they will check for bombs in the area, they conduct paneling with K9 dogs to ensure that the area is safe and secure),” Dela Rey said.

She said that even the sound systems are checked, and once the paneling or inspection using the K9 dog, only authorized persons can enter the area. The City CECU conducts paneling at Roxas Night Market every day before the stalls are installed.

It can be noted that the last bombing incident in Davao City was in 2016 at the Roxas Night Market.

Maka-boost siya sa morale, especially sa atong EOD Unit nga natagaan ug appreciation sa ilahang trabaho. Nakita sa national headquarters ang among effort sa mga big events, since zero incidents gyud ang Davao City– na appreciate nila. Mas makahatag ni sa amoa og inspiration and encouragement to be committed to our service to Davao City (This award boosts our morale, especially to our EOD Unit, as their work was given appreciation. The national government saw our efforts in the big events since we have zero incidents here in Davao, which they appreciated. This award will give more inspiration and encouragement to be committed to our service in Davao City)” Dela Rey said.

Davao City was able to win over the other three finalists: Cebu CECU, Baguio CECU and Cotabato CECU. A total of 25 CECUs all over the Philippines vied for the Best City Explosive Ordinance and Canine Unit award.
