Aside in the 14 Stations of  Cross in Abong-Abong, policemen will also secure the different churches in the city during the observance of Holy Week which will start on Monday, April 18.

City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin Deocampo met with Mayor Celso Lobregat, the Task Force Zamboanga and several other officials including sector representatives to formulate security measures during the week-long commemoration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

As done in the past years, aside from law enforcers, some radio groups will also take part in the activities by extending free communication between and among concerned authorities.

Policemen from the different stations will be deployed in churches including the Fort Pilar Shrine and the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

Deocampo will personally lead his men conducting time-to-time patrol in different strategic places like in Abong-Abong.

The police and military deploy their office and camp personnel to ensure ample security for the week-long activities.

The City Police Office’s Bomb Squad will also conduct roving patrol and will be ready to respond to bomb calls.

In Abong-Abong, there will be no further changes in the implementation of security measures and the re-routing of vehicles.

Police reminded the public that bringing of liquor and deadly weapon in Abong-Abong strictly strictly prohibited.

Deocampo is confident that with the careful preparation made by the police, military and the city government, the city will experience a peaceful and orderly Holy Week. — Dan Toribio Jr.
