Police Regional Office-12 is in heightened alert as security measures have been intensified in General Santos City, Koronadal City, Kidapawan City and Tacurong City  in the wake of the the MNLF siege in Zamboanga City and the twin bombing incidents in Davao City on Tuesday.

PRO-12 Director Chief Supt. Charles Calima Jr. called on all stakeholders in Region 12 to help government forces in combating criminals and lawless elements.

“ We need the help of the populace to fight lawlessness like giving us information thru our communication lines on the presence of suspicious persons in their area,” Calima said.

Task Force GenSan Commander Col. Orlando E. Labutong have positioned some battle tanks in the different entry and exit points of the city in coordination with other law enforcers.

“We are on double red alert,” Labutong said.

Meanwhile, Calima also called on the people of Region 12 to be extra alert and vigilant as he had received information that criminals in Davao City are transferring to other cities in Mindanao  following the declaration of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte that criminals and lawless elements have no place in the city (of Davao). — Allen Abastillas
