“I urge you to help us make people more security concious,” said Mayor Isabelle “Beng” Climaco-Salazar in her message as guest of honor during the the induction ceremony of the newly-revived Zamboanga City Police Press Corps (ZCPPC) and the 26th anniversary celebration of the Daily Zamboanga Times at the Crystal Ballroom of Grand Astoria hotel Monday night.

Climaco-Salazar’s statement came as authorities had earlier bared terror plots in Zamboanga City with gasoline stations and other installations as targets.

In the same message, the mayor appealed to the public to report suspicious items or baggages left unattended by unidentified persons.

“So that people will be aware and we’ll be able to respond to distress (situation). This is to safeguard the interest of the people of Zamboanga City,” Climaco-Salazar said.

“Media play a very important role and continue to grow with the passing of time and the advancement  brought about by technological innovations such as internet and social media,” Climaco-Salazar added.

Climaco-Salazar inducted the newly elected officers of the ZCPPC headed by Arsenio “Rawhide” Nuevo as president, Nonong Santiago (Zamboanga Today), Vice-President; Secretary, Frederick Atilano; Treasurer, Ely Dumaboc; Hader Glang (Zamboanga Today), Auditor; Monch Follosco (Zamboanga Today), Business Manager; P.I.O., Nonoy Lacson (Manila Bulletin);
