Tightened security

  • Security forces on red alert for Undas

The Davao City Police Office and the 10th Infantry Division are on red alert status during the observance of All Saints’ day and All Souls’ day on Nov. 1 and 2.

In an interview on Tuesday, DCPO spokesperson Captain Hazel Tuazon, said all its offices, stations, and units have been ordered to be visible in critical areas, as many people are expected to make use of the long holiday for leisure and family visits.

She explained that police officers would be stationed at cemeteries, public transport facilities, including bus and pier terminals as well as airports, among other places of convergence.

The PNP would also establish at least one Police Assistance Center in every public cemetery or memorial park in cooperation with local government units, civilian volunteer organizations, and civic clubs.

Travelers are reminded to take necessary precautions when leaving their residences and to coordinate with village officials for special security arrangements.

She said they have not monitored any threats to public safety with the upcoming Undas.

In a separate interview, Major Mark Anthony Tito, spokesperson of the 10th Infantry Division, said their security operations are unrelenting.

“After the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan election, we will shift to securing the city during Undas. However, unlike BSKE, there will be more area security operations and augmentation from PNP if needed,” Major Tito said.

He also said that so far, there were no reports of security threats during the long holiday.
