The Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO) has reported 100 percent compliance by its personnel to the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters directive, dubbed as “Ligtas Kapaskuhan.”

The PNP issued a directive to all personnel for an intensified campaign against illegal discharge of firearms and indiscriminate firing.

The campaign included the simultaneous gun muzzle taping of policemen nationwide, last Dec. 22 to assure the public that they would not discharge their firearms during the Yuletide Seasons.

Senior Supt. Angelito Casimiro, ZCPO director, reported 100 percent compliance to the directive, citing no one among his personnel fired their guns during the New Year revelry.

Casimiro led on Friday the inspection and removal of gun muzzle tape of policemen under the ZCPO, which has jurisdiction over 11 police stations and a public safety company.

There are 1,222 policemen assigned in this city’s 11 police stations, Zamboanga City Public Safety Company (ZCPSC) and ZCPO headquarters.

Casimiro said the New Year’s celebration was generally peaceful and injury free in this city.
