Casimiro said that this is the time to buckle down to work as serious threats are being confronted by the city. Eventhough the local police here are on top of the situation, they still continue to appeal to the general public to help them in this anti-terrorism campaign, as well as in all aspects in resolving crimes by giving them accurate information and cooperate with their policeman to sustain a more peaceful environment. – Bhong Simbajon/RMN News
