Police announced yesterday that the city’s peace and order remains stable since the opening of classes three weeks ago.
City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin De Ocampo said that reports from the different police stations and units showed that overall Zamboanga City is peaceful and no major no untoward incident has happened since the start of classes.

De Ocampo said he and his men are working hard to ensure that no lawless people will disturb and commit atrocity as classes are ongoing.
“As far as the island schools, we have not received report of any untoward incident but we do not take things for granted. I and my men are on alert and ready to respond to any eventuality, he said.

He added that the police and the city government have adopted measures as early as before the opening of school classes to ensure that students and teachers are protected and secured from criminals and terrorists.

De Ocampo said that police patrol cars make rounds in school zones in the city proper and nearby barangays to deter crimes.
Policemen from the City Police Office are being backed-up by men of the Zamboanga City Public Safety Company who are also aboard mobile cars conducting mobile patrols from time to time.

Policemen are also providing security to students and teachers in the island barangays like in Sacol.
De Ocampo thanked his men and the community for their cooperation in maintaining peace and order in the city. — Dan Toribio Jr.
