The current situation in the region is normal and peaceful but police are still on heightened alert status even after the midterm election last May 13.

Police  Regional Office-9 Information Officer Chief Insp. Ariel  Huesca  Jr., concurrently chief of the Firearms and Explosives Security Agency Guard Section (FESAGS), disclosed yesterday that the current situation in the whole region is generally peaceful, but all Police Provincial Offices are continuing their efforts to ensure that each area of jurisdiction  is properly monitored.

“Even though the situation is normal, policemen remain vigilant and alert at all cost  in ensuring the safety of each community in the region. PRO-9 is also closely monitoring candidates who were not able to  make it  in the election,” Huesca said.

According to Huesca, PRO-9 Director Chief Supt. Juanito B. Vaño has directed all provincial directors and ground commanders to intensify their security measures in their areas of jurisdiction even though the region is experiencing tranquility.

Huesca said that police troopers from the region down to  municipal stations are working 24 hours a day in coordination with other law enforcers and local government units to maintain stable peace and order.

Moreover, Huesca said that all police commanders in the region maintain their security measures  as all winning candidates in the region are preparing for their inaugural oath taking at the end of this month.— Allen Abastillas
