Threats of bombing and kidnapping  and other lawlessness still exist in Zamboanga City, Supt.  Ariel T. Huesca Jr., chief of the PNP’s Zamboanga City Public Safety Company, said Thursday.

Huesca said the Zamboanga City Police Office maintains the status of full alert due to these terror threats.

He said for how many years now, even before he assumed his present position, terrror threats persist in the city

Huesca’s troopers are on relentless conduct of checkpoints in different areas in the city and are securing crowded places where people converge like the downtown area, terminals, airport, seaport, markets  and the entry /exit roads of the city.

“We continuously  conduct random checkpoints and inspection in the west coast and east coast including coastal areas,” Huesca said.

On other lawlessness activities, Huesca said his command is in 24/7 operations involving random patrols and inspections.

“I have received information that the number of private wharves in the city is almost 100. Based on my conduct of random patrol and inspection,  I observed there are many private wharvesin the city . We cannot operate there because it is the jurisdiction of the Maritime Police,” Huesca explained.

He appealed to the people to help the police in their law enforcement operations aimed at combatting lawlessness and criminalities. — Allen Abastillas
