Task Force Zamboanga (TFZ) patrol cars will be roving around the City Proper to broadcast information on public safety, and to prompt residents to remain vigilant.

This is part of the TFZ’s campaign Plan Bayanihan, an advocacy that seeks to encourage residents to cooperate and work together with authorities to maintain peace and order in the City, TFZ Commander Col. Adreilino Colino told members of the local press Monday.

Four patrol cars with public address systems will be roving around the City Proper to remind residents to be mindful of what is happening around them.

“Once they [patrol cars] are on the streets, they will be telling the people to be aware of their surroundings, to be aware of any unattended baggage placed on the street or in any area in the City of Zamboanga,” said Colina.

The campaign, he added, intends to pre-empt possible attempts of threat groups to plant IEDs in the City by catalyzing residents to provide information to the armed forces and the police.

Meanwhile, the TFZ commander assured that the armed forces continues to maintain security alertness in Zamboanga City.

Intelligence monitoring have also been intensified to support the operations of the armed forces.

The TFZ also continues to work with barangays through the Bayanihan Team activities which intend to make barangays inhospitable to threat groups who seek to use them as entry points or safety havens.

As the armed forces maintain its security efforts, Colina once again called on Zamboangueños to support authorities in their safety and security efforts.

“All we want for the people of Zamboanga is for them to cooperate with us,” emphasized Colina.  — Jasmine Mohammadsali)
